What are the benefits of Gekko handrims?
Perfect ergonomics and outstanding grip combined with low weight make the Gekko a unique, revolutionary grip tire. The rugged, interchangeable silicone lip, fully integrated into the profile, contributes to the rider's exceptional handling characteristics and provides unsurpassed ride comfort. The anodized, low-friction surface on the sides also reduces the heat during braking.
Which profile size and coating do we recommend?
Gladly we recommend the Gekko S for small hands to children's hands. Children learn at a young age the right use or the right grip. For normal and large hands, we recommend the larger GEKKO profile.
