Rain protection for recumbent made for adventurers
This model offers an excellent protection by rain and sun for Recumbent Trike, it diminishes the cold feelings in winter. The bascule-system of the canopy facilitates the entrance or the exit on the trike. It can be folded into the storage bag like the side panels and the poles.
The VELTOP EXPEDITION integrally protects its user from the rain but also from the sun and allows him to enjoy his recumbent trike whatever the weather. Several colors are available: yellow, grey, turquoise blue, anise green and black.
The assembly and disassembly of the canopy and the side protections is simple and fast. Less than 2 minutes are enough to store the whole in the rear bag.
An easy access
The hood can be tilted forward to allow easier access into the seat.
A windscreen in 3 parts
The middle part can be pushed down to obtain a sight window of 12cm,
very useful by night or bad weather (frost, snow, dizzle,...)
A summer version
The middle windscreen can be removed and stored in the bag to offer a greater sight and allows the air to get in. The canopy is kept half or entire spread out for the sun protection
More secure travel
The protection offers a greater visual impact to other road users. As a result, the cars make more consequent evasive movements.

Our customers reviews
I installed the VELTOP on my (Pedeleec) Scorpion a few days ago, I am very satisfied!
Not sensible to wind, as it is very "discreetly cut".
The weather protection is better than what you get from the look.
In windy conditions the rain from the sides goes right through...
Against water from below only an extension of the mudguards or avoiding puddles will help ;-)
Compared to my streamer there is more rain on the pants... but the rest is well protected.
(Because the Streamer sits quite close to the foot and the legs)
I'm gonna post a few photos over the days.
Clear minus, however, is the optics!
The thing looks very "strange", otherwise quite chic Scorpion.
But the details of the VELTOP are already very nice and well made.
Also the mounting and dismounting is very easy!
It was also a bit more wind resistance to expect, because the windscreen goes up well.
About 1,5 to 2,5 km/h with self support it should be against the streamer.
So about 28,5 km/h where I usually drive about 30 km/h.
My average is also about 1 km/h down from 26 to 25.
Conclusion so far,
Winter may come! :-)
So - in terms of customer friendliness and service, you are unrivalled! Exemplary! I don't need to say anything more about the VELTOP itself. Anyone who sees me on the road can feel my enthusiasm for this product.
I've installed and tested my Veltop in heavy rainfall. In one word: it's genius! I really like the way you can adjust everything to fit your bike.
I used it without the translucent side flaps, because i think they're a bit cumbersome to install. But even without the sideflaps it did it's job well.
Off course you still get a bit wet from splashing water and side winds (without the flaps), but even after considerable time in the rain, my ride was still comfortable.
This is really going to change my daily commute of 66 km (round trip)!
This invention would change the world, if people were a little less lazy and a bit more adventurous!
Enclosed you can find some pictures of my home-made, electrically assisted and now weather protected trike.
I'm not sure I installed the side flaps correctly (I never read manuals :-).
I received the package today.
I am writing you . So I can sincerely thank you. Very very much.
For adding the rear click piece At no cost.
You and Veltop are the most helpful considerate and generous company I have ever dealt with.
I installed a Veltop on my ICE Sprint26 a couple of weeks ago.I haven't tried it in the rain yet,but it sure helps to keep the sun off me.Very solid mount too.I have very poor roads around here and it hasn't budged a bit.
I have ridden several times with your Veltop to date and I am very pleased with it. I had some concern as to getting on and off of my trike with this in place but I am finding it to be very easy to do. Thank you again.
They fit great and I'm very happy now. Thanks for sending them so quick. Now I want it to rain so I can go ride around. Drove around with the top up when it was drizzling out and it was great. Everybody looks at the bike with the roof on it LOL. Thanks again, here is a couple pics with the bigger windows, great fit.
Shortly after our previous e-mails I ordered the Veltop for use on my Catrike Speed. I have to say that, after getting it setup and dialed
in, I am quite pleased with the protection it provides from the
elements and look forward to continuing my car-free lifestyle shielded from the rain!
