Introducing the Grasshopper fx/Air from New York City Recumbent Supply, the recumbent bike that packs into a suitcase.
Manufactured by HP Velotechnik.

Supplies are limited.  Order today.

At New York City Recumbent Supply, we took HP Velotechnik’s best-of-class folding recumbent, the Grasshopper fx, and created a lightweight version that packs into an airline suitcase: the Grasshopper fx/Air.

Only available from New York City Recumbent Supply.
To purchase, contact Robert at: RM@TheInnovationWorks.com or call +1 (646) 233-1219 (USA).
Price: $5075 (plus shipping and/or sales tax)

Includes suitcase and personal instruction.  Some disassembly and assembly is required but you only need rudimentary mechanical skills (if you can change a flat tire and unscrew a bolt, you can handle this).

The Grasshopper fx is our most popular 2-wheeled recumbent bike and for good reason: it folds quickly; it is relatively lightweight; the ride quality and engineering are superb; and it looks great.

Many of our customers want to travel with their recumbent bikes, whether by plane, train or automobile. For many years, there have been “travel” versions of recumbent bikes. But (nearly) all of them have had critical flaws: poor quality, too costly, too complicated to pack, poor manufacturer support, or the ride quality was so bad that no one wanted to use them after they got to their destination.

At New York City Recumbent Supply, we took this challenge head-on and created the HP Velotechnik Grasshopper fx/Air.

  • Like all HP Velotechnik recumbent bikes, the Grasshopper fx/Air meets the highest standards and is built to last, with a 10-year warranty for the bike frame.
  • Similar in price to the standard Grasshopper fx with many of the same options and accessories.
  • Unlike hard-to-pack models from other manufacturers, the Grasshopper fx/Air packs easily and quickly — figure about 20 minutes. (After one “practice run,” Robert (Hi!) could pack it in about 15 minutes and re-assemble it in about 25 minutes.)
  • As with all HP Velotechnik machines, you can count on HP Velotechnik for world-class manufacturer support.
  • Riders all over the world recognize the HP Velotechnik brand as synonymous with quality manufacturing and excellent riding characteristics.
  • The Grasshopper fx/Air fits in the trunk of an economy rental car with the back seats up!
  • Fits on Amtrak, the New York City Subway, Metro North, NJ Transit and many other regional trains and buses.
