PERFORMANCE

HOW TO BUY & FIT

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 to pedal or the performance of your e-bike batteries. Our comfortable real rubber tyres give you many advantages:

 

- Always ready when you are. Leave them in a garage for months or even years and when you want to go for a ride, 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. Being late to work due to a flat tyre just isn't worth the risk. 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 (not plastic!) They won't lose grip or slip in the rain or mud like the other solid tyres do.

100% puncture proof

100% recyclable

100% hassle free

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

 

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

 

'Evolution 3' Geckos come in the following flavours:

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

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

 

Gecko tyres have been extensively tested and independent experts from some of the world's leading tyre and bicycle companies agree we've produced the best puncture proof tyre ever made. Our new hybrid version pushes the boundary of performance even further! We believe we will soon be indistinguishable from a traditional pneumatic tyre in terms of 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, our tyres are always the same. You can rely on the ebike battery range remaining constant

 

Longer life - no more side wall 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.

Ours are the only airless tyres made from real rubber

 

Better grip than even pneumatics and in all weather conditions, wet or dry

 

Gecko 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 solid tyres)

 

True ride quality – comfort & true road feel

 

Ours are super easy to install.

Gecko uses a patented new cellular rubber technology

 

We make the only tyres that can be recycled into new tyres, all others end up in landfill or are burnt

 

On top of that, an independent life cycle assessment study indicates that our tyres have a more than 70% smaller carbon footprint than a conventional tyre
