The Hp Velotechnik Grasshopper fx Recumbent Bike brings
the cycle world. For a long time bike riding meant one thing: hump up
and step downwards. The Grasshopper fx accelerates forward, suspends
downwards – and folds to the side.
On the train, in the car or at home HP Velotechnik's new touring recumbent likes it small. With a packing dimension from 96 × 50 × 70 cm
and a weight starting from 15,2 kg the rapidly folded bike easliy finds it's
shelter. Unfolded on tour the Grasshopper fx is pure riding pleasure.
You do not want to miss out. Who likes riding upright against the wind, anyway? Your Grasshopper fx glides smoothly like an arrow on the street.
Off-road the 110 mm suspension travel handles roughnesses with ease.
Take a comfy seat on the airy ErgoMesh-Netseat or the fully adjustable
BodyLink seat. This one is good for your bottom, your intervertebral
discs and your family planning. Flexible like your life it gives a
pleasant support for dynamic sprints.
