    We are proud of our "babies" and wish them and their new owners always a good ride.

  • bentrideronline.com Logo "A shockingly good bargain" – Bryan Ball, managing editor of 'BentRider Online, just undertook our Gekko fx 26 a thorough testing. We are very happy that it could convince as well in the overall impression as in detail. Moreover with it's very agile but still comfortable handling our Gekko performed on eye level with sporty premium touring trikes of other manufacturers which are significantly more expensive. The full review is available either in the original version on bentrideronline.com or in our press room.

  • Not just looking – touching and testing! From August 31 to September 4 we are presenting our new models and options for 2017 at the Eurobike trade fair.

  • About 500 guests made their way, despite uncertain weather conditions, on the last weekend of June to Kriftel for our open house.

    Some well-known faces and many first-time visitors made use of the opportunity to become familiar with HP Velotechnik and our cycles – especially the guided tours with one of our co-founders, Paul Hollants, were in top demand.

    The adventurer Matthias Ramsel presented his Transmongolian Kite-Trike-Tour in words and fascinating pictures to a interested public: There were not enough seats for the audience and it was left "standing room only" for his presentations! Just like the visitors were standing during the show, the outside area during a sudden, and powerful downpour could not really halt the non-stop test rides: As soon as the rain lessened, the circuit was bustling with activity again. Our fleet of approximately 30 cycles including the Scorpion fs S-Pedelecs were in continuous operation.

    The team of HP Velotechnik can once again look back on a successful open house. We want to thank all of our guests for visiting us and we are already look forward to next year – and this time with some sunshine!

  • Not even April weather can stop the special bike fans! – Despite horrible conditions, around 10,000 bicycle enthusiasts attended the "SPEZI" Convention 2016. And the interest at the significantly larger booth of HP Velotechnik was not only big in numbers: typical for the fair in Germersheim, the high quality of the discussions was impressive and our team was asked very detailed questions – for instance about the optional GO SwissDrive electric motor (available on all models) or the wide range of customizing options.

    The SPEZI, however, is not only watching and informing, but of course: riding. While the fear of being surprised by a heavy rainshower may have prevented some visitors to go the short distance to the new test track for electric bikes and trikes, on the regular course the day proved that the majority of Spezi visitors has a lot of fun riding even under bad conditions and not only love trikes but still bicycles like Streetmachine Gte, Speedmachine und Grasshopper fx.

    A real challenge for our Scorpion fs 20 though has been the "Transmongolian Kite Trike Tour" of adventurer Matthias Ramsel who shared partly dramatic, but also very funny pictures, videos and stories about his trip as a special highlight. More information about the trip and further presentation dates can be found here:

  • ElektroRad 01/2016 - "sehr gut" Very Good – That is what the German special interest magazine "ElektroRad" wrote about the Scorpion fx. The test was part of the most comprehensive test of E-bikes ever in Europe. The exceptional position is emphasized due to the test with 71 bikes, the Scorpion fx received in the section "Special Bikes" as only one the "Very good"-recommendation. Reasons were obvious to the editors: Because of the very comfortable features of the trike and the motorâ€TMs capabilities. They were especially impressed by the very powerful uphill performance and the easy-to-use colour display in interaction with the HP Velotechnik hand rests. Designed as a travelling trike, the Scorpion fx scores with features like the huge luggage capacity (up to 50 kg or 4 backroller bags), and its folding hinge (German patent). Test driver Tilman B. (28) is certain: "This trike guarantees a smile." (more ...)
