Try it yourself on our new puncture PROOF bike tyres.
Gecko Rubber was set up in the South West of the UK in 2004 with a research & development grant and a kind loan from the bank. With this funding and the help of some excellent, often local, suppliers and industry partners we have developed a new expanded rubber technology.
This new patented material possesses outstanding physical and dynamic characteristics with excellent vibration isolation, damping and shock resistance properties and lends itself to a wide range of applications.
Our first major product using this patented technology is a puncture proof bicycle tyre. With over 30 years experience in tyre manufacture we have recognised that our Gecko rubber technology offers a new way of producing puncture proof/low maintenance tyres as well as offering significant recycling, safety, weight and cost saving advantages.
We do believe this technology can successfully fill the gap between traditional pneumatic rubber and polyurethane foam/solid rubber tyre technologies.
Some very useful properties beyond tyres
LIGHTWEIGHT WITH GOOD DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE
The rubber can be super lightweight (up to 80% weight reduction) and gives excellent dynamic performance as you may expect from a quality rubber product.
SIMPLE TO RECYCLE
Our bicycle tyres have a single rubber component and so they can be recycled easily into high quality rubber products, unlike conventional pneumatic tyres.
CAN BE BONDED
We can bond this rubber material to almost anything and ensure that it can cope with a wide range of application environments.
Nice things you can do with it
Puncture proof tyres that feel and behave like conventional pneumatic tyres with good grip, handling and wear resistance.
Ideal for flexible joints or seals between components, it can be bonded for an easy assembly.
We can adjust the properties to give varying levels of suspension and vibration isolation to meet your requirements.
Excellent for vibration damping, we’ve used it for engine mounts and tool grips
We can also adjust the material properties to give different levels of 'grippiness'.
Good shock absorbing characteristics and energy absorption.
