Description

Details

German engineers designed Gecko® gaffs to fulfill the comfort needs of modern tree and utility climbing personnel without all the weight and mass associated with traditional-style spurs. Weighing in as the lightest aluminum climbing gaffs available today. Gecko® climber's provide owners with the perfect balance of gaffing effectiveness and product longevity.

The primary feature that affects gaff comfort is the relationship between the human form and mechanical brace. Gecko® gaffs aluminum alloy leg shanks were scientifically designed to cup the foot arch, bypass irritating contact with the ankle,and gently brace against the upper shin. There is no super-wide, triple-thick,metal-enhanced, double-strapped mattress required to keep Gecko® gaffs secured to one’s leg and no steel adjustment sleeve to add weight. Gecko® climbers are sought for their unique simplicity and minimalist features, their adjustable fiberglass shin cuff with Velcro®-attached washable padding, their sleek form, and, most of all,ideal comfort. Comfortable, lightweight, cool, smart spur design … what are you waiting for?

Features:
• Uniquely effective and easily sharpened spur design
• The lightest aluminum climbers currently available
• Meets ASTM standards for strength
• Comfortable, integrated and washable padding system
• Wide and secure Velcro cinch straps
• Contoured design provides ankle relief
• Adjustable from 41 to 48 cm, in 2-cm increments

Requires fine tuning Review by Jesse Parks

The solid one piece design is favorable but I have never "enjoyed" a pair of climbers without the trial and error of modifications. The stirrup must be patiently shaped with a file to fit the arch more like a Klein (use a rasp and file so you don't heat the aluminum or take too much at once). Then to cure the leg pain: after fitted for length, remove the lower cuff bolt and slightly loosen the top one. Then secure the climber as if in use, press the cuff against your leg while there is pressure on the spike only (while standing) and mark the fiberglass through the lower bolt hole of the shank with the sharp end of a round file. Disassemble the climber, drill the new hole (gently with a sharp bit), then reassemble. Repeat for the other leg. Now you will have even pressure on your weary shins. P.S. Before you fret about about weakening your stirrups, look at how skinny your D rings and carabiners are. (Posted on 4/11/2015)
Absolutely worth the $$$ Review by Travis Cole

I've been using Buckinghams for years, but these have always been on my wish list. After my first full day of use I didn't feel like I had been using spurs at all. Super comfy, very secure fit. I hear people complain about the fit on boots without the instep gap. I wear boots for primarily rope climbing without heals, and I had no issue at all. If your considering a pair, its worth it. Don't wait. (Posted on 2/20/2015)

I like them very light but I have wide feet so the foot pad on the spurs puts a lot of pressure on the out sides of my feet on long days. I had to cut my boots to fit the spur and made bigger foot pads. it helps a lot. (Posted on 6/25/2014)

Truly the best spikes I have tried and now own. So light I can't even tell they are strapped to my legs. The only downfall which is really not a downfall just a learning aspect is the spikes are a little more slender and dig into the tree more than the Buckinghams I used before. (Posted on 3/18/2014)

Great product, I've been in trees for hours with only one complaint. The rivets that hold the pads on have punctured through the pads and into my shins, which causes a lot of discomfort especially for trimming/removing trees that take a while to do. (Posted on 9/29/2013)

They are not as comfortable as my bashlins. Actually, they caused quite a bit of pain in my legs. My crew likes them, but they're just not for me. (Posted on 9/21/2013)

5 years and counting Review by treedave

Bought these Geckos 6 years ago. Comfort has been awesome except for seam in pant leg gets pressed into leg for long periods of climbing. I do many major large diameter removals each week and have to push off heavy blocks, the Geckos have taken the 350 plus pressure fine for 5 years and counting. Still on my origanal pads too (Posted on 3/17/2013)
