“We have completed several tours [over 4,000 miles] including trips from Bristol to Norwich, Brighton and Manchester… We are delighted with the performance and durability.”
“The piece of mind Gecko gives is priceless, especially on cold winter mornings. Another benefit I've found compared to other puncture proof tyres is the amazing grip especially in the wet"
"Have had Gecko tyres on my bike now for several months and I can't notice any reduction in performance with my previous tyres. Its so great that they never go flat"
"Back to back testing against rival solid tyre offerings showed Gecko to be way ahead of the competition. The natural rubber sustainable credentials are a further bonus"
The best performing airless tyre ever made.
Our airless tyres can’t get punctures. They will never go flat or go flat and crack and so they will never let you down.
But being made of our unique rubber, rather than a foamed plastic, means our tyres are the only airless tyres that give amazing grip (and therefore amazing road feel) and are comfortable to ride in all temperatures and weather conditions.
They are also easy to fit in just a few minutes using our own unique tyre retaining clip system.

Clear benefits worth the compromise...
If you need 100% puncture proof and zero maintenance (i.e. no pumping up) in your bicycle tyre then you will need a 'solid' airless tyre (possibly with cavities) rather than a pneumatic (air filled) tyre. If you do choose the 100% puncture proof/airless option you will need to compromise in the level of comfort (isolating vibration) and speed (low rolling resistance) you expect from your tyres and probably also in the grip (and road feel) and ease of installation. If you are going to make the airless tyre choice then we believe the Gecko tyre will offer you the closest performance to a fully maintained good quality pneumatic (air filled) tyre. Also, Geckos are the only 100% recyclable bicycle tyre, they are the most sustainable bicycle tyre...
The most sustainable tyre ever made.
Each year over a billion bicycle tyres end up in landfill or are burnt. Filled with metals, fibres and various component compounds, they are simply too difficult to do anything with.
Gecko tyres are different, our unique patented lightweight rubber comes in a single compound that can be ground down as a single compound and re-used. Many years of development has meant we can now make the world’s first tyre that can be 100% recycled back into a new tyre.
