ENVIRONMENT

Many of us have a garage full of kids bikes that only get ridden in the summer. Perhaps an e-bike where the motor assembly makes changing the wheel difficult. Maybe we want a great way to get fit or an alternative way to get to work.

 

The only problem with bikes is that the tyres can go flat.

 

A loss of pressure in the tyre will hugely impact the effort required or the performance of your e-bike batteries. Our comfortable real rubber tyres give you back control and feel just like pneumatic tyres.

 

- Always ready when you are. Leave them in a garage for months and when you want to go for a ride, the Geckos are ready!

 

- Guaranteed range performance. Geckos can't lose pressure, a full e-bike charge will always take you the distance you expect.

 

- Never be late to work. With Gecko you know the tyres can't let you down.

 

- Changing a flat is hard. Especially on an e-bike, changing a flat tyre can be difficult and time consuming. Time to stop worrying about it.

 

- Great all weather performance. Geckos are made from real rubber, as tyres should be. They won't lose grip or slip in the rain or mud like some plastic tyres can.

 

- No other puncture proof tyre comes close in terms of ride comfort or performance.

Traditional rubber, textile and metal tyres are very hard to recycle due to the difficulty in separating the different materials, so unless they become a cool belt, there is not much you can do with them.

* obviously only valid If the tyres are kept at the correct pressure without any punctures.

Comparing Geckos to the competition & alternatives:

Good quality & properly serviced pneumatic bicycle tyres:

Other solid or airless bicycle tyres:

All bicycle tyres:

No punctures - total reassurance, when ever and where ever you ride

 

No pumping up. Ever

 

Consistent performance, tyres are always the same. You can rely on the ebike battery range remaining constant

 

Longer life - no more sidewall cracking with tyres left to go flat, no more tyres and tubes binned after a puncture and no more leaking valves

 

Bike hire/share programs can save over 65% on overall tyre purchase & maintenance.

Real rubber performance

 

Excellent grip in all weather conditions, wet or dry, sub zero to 50 degrees C

 

Gecko compounded rubber contains an elastomer network cross-linked with key fillers to build up heat (hysteresis) and so grip and hold the road, (not possible with foamed plastic)

 

True ride quality – comfort & true road feel

 

Easy installation (with a hand lever or PNA)

Gecko uses a patented new cellular rubber technology

 

Sustainable material used – returned tyres will be recycled directly back into new tyre manufacture

 

Life Cycle assessment study indicates over 70% smaller carbon footprint

 

Made in the UK

 

Low tyre manufacturing cost potential

 

Tyres can be designed for specific requirements - new profiles and unique rubber properties developed.

Our customers immediately notice a great improvement of our tyres over other puncture proof airless tyres, with many saying they are as nice as traditional pneumatics.

 

The patented Gecko cellular rubber comes in a variety of sizes:

 

'Evolution 3' Geckos:

26” x 1.5" (to fit wheel rim size: ETRTO 559 x 19 & ETRTO 559 x 20)

26” x 1.75” (to fit wheel rim size: ETRTO 559 x 18 & ETRTO 559 x19)

700 x 40 (to fit wheel rim size: ETRTO 622 x 18 & ETRTO 622 x 19)

 

We're so happy with our latest evolution of the patented Gecko tyre that we've stopped producing the old Comfort and Regular tyres. Now with even lower rolling resistance than our previous versions whilst also having  even better levels of comfort, grip and road handling. It's without a doubt the best airless tyre we've ever produced.
