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 and 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.

Our customers immediately notice a great improvement of our tyres over other puncture proof tyres with many saying they are as nice as traditional pneumatics. The patented Gecko cellular rubber now comes in two 'flavours'; a softer more comfortable ride, perfect for e-bikes and a slighty firmer faster one for regular bicycles.

We're very proud to report that the Gecko tyres have been trialled extensively in cities across the UK and France racking up tens of thousands of miles and a quickly growing number of customers report that they are indistinguishable from traditional pneumatic tyres when riding. Come and try them for yourself.
