Gecko Traxx

Social Impact

Produces treads for wheelchair users that enables them to travel over off-road terrain with ease.

Founded by Ryan Tilley and Huy Nguyen, Gecko Traxx is an outdoor brand for people with a disability - enabling wheelchair users to get outdoors and explore.

Their first product, the Gecko Traxx Tyre is a unique portable and affordable wheelchair accessory that enables off-road access for manual wheelchair users. The flexible set of tyres simply wraps around the existing on-road tyres of a manual wheelchair for when challenging terrain is encountered, giving immediate off-road capability on soft surfaces such as sand, grass, snow or gravel.

The design of the tyre allows for easy, independent use, providing wheelchair users with a spontaneous way to access and enjoy the great outdoors.
