At Urbane Cyclist we have been recumbent specialists for more than a decade. We stock the most reliable and easily serviceable recumbents we can get. As such, many models are by special order only. With the Scorpion fs the roughest journey becomes an exhilarating ride. Pot holes, cobblestones, gravel roads: the condition of your way ahead can be shocking indeed. From now on you are going to look forward to ride those little sweet challenges. Once you want to leave the beaten track, you are in need of a quick responding suspension, perfect roadholding, precise steering and an optimum of steadiness. Now, the Scorpion fs is your perfect choice. The comfortable MacPherson front suspension has 6 cm (2.4 inches) of travel and uses a reliable spring and elastomer system. The Scorpion fs's most unique feature is the beefy wishbone and stabilizer bar system under the cruciform frame. This stops the trike from rolling in corners whilst preserving its suspension movement. The suspension struts are supported on the far end of the frame's rigid, large diameter crossbar close to the wheel. The adjustable whishbones are equipped with maintenance free bearings. With this design, our engineers were able to keep unsuspended masses at a minimum, achieving a rapidly responding front suspension action with an astonishing low weight from 17,6 kg for this fully suspended touring trike. The suspension preload is adjustable. By exchanging the steel springs and varying the parallely positioned MCU-elastomer / spacer stack you can adjust the suspension characteristics, stiffness and progression to match your individual riding style and needs.
