Product Description

There really is not one single brand or style of climbing spur that has a stronger following than the Gecko Ultra Light climbers. Engineered in Germany to simply fit differently--as in better--than other popular spurs on the market. The design of these spurs is easier on the ankle and shin when compared to more traditional spurs. Additionally, there is no adjustment sleeve to add weight or bulk, yet these spurs do adjust easily at every 2 cm (adjustment range from 41 - 48 cm). The pads feature washable padding and are made from fiberglass, which really completes the lightweight package. The Velcro cinch straps are wide and secure, and eliminate the need for traditional upper leg straps. Most users of these spurs and pads agree that they are simply the lightest, most comfortable choice on the market. This spur setup is sleek, simple, effective--and backed by a lifetime warranty.

  • Extremely lightweight, sleek and simple design
  • Aluminum alloy leg shanks were scientifically designed to cup the foot arch and brace against the upper shin
  • Contoured design provides ankle relief
  • Adjustable fiberglass shin cuff with comfortable integrated padding system
  • Wide and secure Velcro cinch straps
  • Adjustable from 14-3/4" - 19-1/2"
  • Meets ASTM F887 standard

* Weight limit on Gecko climbers has recently been raised to 350 lbs, including gear.

Is there any way to get these in a different color? My bf is an arborist and I wanted to get these for him for Christmas, but his boss has this exact pair in red.
1 Answer
This exact SKU only comes as shown, but Gecko does offer carbon fiber spurs which are lighter and mainly black. You can see them here.

How long are the spikes?
1 Answer
The spikes/gaffs on these spurs are called out @ 2-7/8" in length. This is a fairly standard length for tree gaffs. Most will measure from 2-5/8" - 2-7/8".

I recently ordered a set of these and they are the beez kneez. Lightweight, comfortable and excellent support.
  • Lightweight

Got the job done!

They worked for what I needed to get accomplished. Climbing a 40ft pine tree is not easy but the spikes worked out great. I would recommend them to anyone looking to trim trees and/or palms.
  • Lightweight
  • Would like a shorter spike but I got what I ordered

Best pair of spurs I've ever owned, the design of these spurs fit your leg and foot beautifully, even if you're in the tree for hours at a time, no problem! The comfort level is unmatched.
  • Light, comfortable, balanced
  • They're a little pricey but I own two pairs and they're a great investment
By Randy
