WHERE TO BUY
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.
