Welcome to the Gecko Rubber Community!
Hi, I’m Richard! I’m the founder of Gecko Rubber, based in Wiltshire in the South West of England.
I founded Gecko Rubber based on 35 years experience in tyre manufacturing and rubber technology, a passion I shared with my father who was a lecturer in rubber technology. Whilst other fathers and sons we’re at the pub, we were talking about the future of cellular rubber and hence, Gecko Rubber was born!
The company was started with the vision of creating 100% puncture-proof, high performance, recyclable bicycle tyres. After developing our patented two stage moulding technology, we’ve refined our materials to make this vision a reality…
Presenting the New Gecko Tyres!
We’ve been in stealth mode for a while, working on our new Gecko Tyres, and the prototypes are finally here! Using our novel cellular rubber moulding technology, we’ve optimised our formulation to give our lightest tyre yet, comparable to the weight of a standard pneumatic, with exceptional comfort and ride feel!
Not only are the new Gecko Tyres 100% puncture-proof, we’ve added bounce to the tyres to give a comfortable and smooth ride, which has been independently verified by cycling experts. Easily installed in under 5 minutes, they require zero maintenance and when the reach end-of-life can be 100% recycled back into a brand new tyre!
