We're on a mission to make cycling easier for cyclists and easier on the planet!
Gecko Airless Tyres are puncture-proof, maintenance-free and recyclable. Easily installed in under 5 minutes, Gecko Tyres have optimum comfort, great rolling properties, grip and durability, and lasting twice as long as a standard pneumatic tyre.
Gecko Rubber was founded in 2004 in the South West of England. Our founder, Richard Adams, has over 35 years experience in rubber technology and tyre manufacturing.
Our patented cellular rubber material possesses outstanding static and dynamic characteristics with excellent vibration isolation, damping and shock resistance properties, lending itself to a wide range of applications. Our first major product is the puncture-proof, closed loop bicycle tyre.
We've been developing airless tyres for a number of years and will soon be launching our new ultra-lightweight Gecko Tyres. The weight has been optimised through our patented moulding processes to produce great rolling properties and a comfortable ride.
Closed Loop Manufacturing
Gecko Tyres are made from a single material meaning that the manufacturing process requires significantly less equipment, space and energy compared to conventional tyre manufacturing methods. During use, Gecko Tyres are the more sustainable and cost-efficient option as they don't require inner tubes and don't get punctures. At end-of-life, Gecko Tyres can be ground down to the starting material and used to make a brand new tyre.
Life Cycle Analysis
Overall life cycle analysis has shown that Gecko Tyres use 70% less carbon dioxide.
New Ultra-Lightweight Gecko Tyres
Our first generation tyres received encouraging feedback about the comfort, performance, durability and peace of mind offered by Gecko Tyres. However, we have listened to our customers and have developed our lightest tyre yet with lower rolling resistance. By incorporating unique additives into the rubber moulding process, we have been able to finely tune the characteristics of the final product to further meet the needs of our customers.
