  • Trike of the week – normally the German online magazine MTB NEWS talks about bikes, i.e. mountainbikes. This week they were driven to change the categorie: They had to talk about a mountaintrike! German downhill queen Franzi Meyer had to stopp her racing efforts because of a broken collarbone. So she turned over to ride one of our Scorpion Enduro trikes for a couple of weeks. With growing pleasure - but see it for yourself! (more on mtb-news.de)


  • HP Velotechnik Big rush: Almost 600 visitors – as many as never before – joined the day of open house of German recumbent manufacturer HP Velotechnik. The hours ticked away quickly and the visitors were highly delighted by the program with two factory tours and, of course, test-driving the whole range of the HP Velotechnik-trikes and recumbents. The attendants came from whole Germany and the european neighbor states as Netherlands, Belgium or Sweden.

  • Incredible! – The results from HP Velotechnik "SPEZI" convention broke all records: Our stand was overrun on both days! In our 20 year attendance, no one could remember so many visitors on both days. The doors opened at 10:00 and we were in non-stop action until they closed again at 18:00. Whether recumbent or not-yet-recumbent enthusiast, we were inundated with specific technical, and general questions about the HP Velotechnik line-up. Many people confided in us that recumbent cycles were new to them and since they had heard so much about them, they had to see them in person. Many visitors focused on the newly introduced Scorpion plus comfort trike which provides an upright sitting position allowing a completely new group of people to enjoy a tadpole trike. Additionally, we are offering many customizing options to allow people with mobility issues to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

    Not only were we swamped with questions about the new HP Velotechnik products, but Matthias Ramsel who will be starting in a few days on his spectacular "Trans-Mongolian Kite-Trike Tour" took time to talk to many interested visitors. His expedition trike which combines a HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs 20 and a kite harness earned its share of interested looks. There were more than enough questions about the "how and why" as well as many good luck wishes.
    Our good friend Matt Galat came by to say "Hi!" He starts his 5 (yes, FIVE!) year "JaYoe" ‘round the world tour again this summer. Matt had to stop last year after an accident with a truck. Both of our globetrotters had lots to tell about their experiences and give tips and tricks about their Scorpion fs 20s.

  • Add fuel, Matt! In a couple of weeks, after a 6 month break, our friend Matt will re-boot the around the world trip "JaYoe" Project! His absence from his Scorpion Trike (after an accident with a truck!) was put to good use; he spent the time editing some outstanding videos of our factory! This should come as no surprise since Matt is a professional in this field. These impressions give detailed, behind-the-scenes look of how the project started in Kriftel and the work in the assembly hall, capturing the "YoJoe" spirit.

    PS: "JaYoe" is Chinese and means: "Add fuel!"

  • The Magic Three: A Scorpion trike, a sport kite and cross country ski – if you thought this triad to be three different forms ao sport: you are wrong! Matthias Ramsel is assessing this extremely rare combination to prepare his "Transmongolian Kite-Trike-Tour". The protagonist is our partner in one of the most spectacular bike-projects of the 21st century: He will ride through Mongolia on a trike, pulled most of the time by a regular kite.

    He explains: "I have to get as much practise as possible to know, how to direct the kite when sitting in my trike." Time is getting short until the start in early May. So he just cut off an old pair of cross country skis and fixed them to the front wheels of his "Scorpion fs". Then he headed out for the highest mountain in Hesse (Wasserkuppe, Rhön), buckled up the kite harness – and off he goes! Watch the pictures here, the action video will come soon:

  • On friday noon the first production model of our new Scorpion plus range has left our manufacture in Kriftel. A reason to celebrate for staff and CEOs alike.

    With the family photo we also would like to send our newest member, with all the best wishes to its recipient: the "Veloladen" of Ortwin Kü in Bergisch-Gladbach. Following the "first come, first serve" principle, the "Veloladen" receives the first "Scorpion plus" as they already had confirmed their order when we launched the new Scorpion plus 20 and Scorpion plus 26 in 2014.
