Frequently Asked Questions

- Wheel Size
Gecko Traxx is currently available for two size wheels of 24” and 25”.
If you’re unsure or need help to know if they fit your wheelchair, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us via phone or email.
While there will still be a bit of effort to push along sand even with Gecko Traxx on, they’ve been proven to reduce strain by at least 50% and more importantly, Gecko Traxx ensure you won’t sink into the sand. It’s the difference between being able to push through sand and not with a set of Gecko Traxx.
You can compare them to a set of large wide wheels, but portable, lightweight and won’t cut your hands.
We recommend complimenting a set of Gecko Traxx with a front-wheel attachment to lift off the front casters such as a Free Wheel or an Out Front wheel by GTK.
