Gecko Grip awarded with the “Taipei Cycle d&I awards 2020 by iF” award
We are happy to finally be able to announce that our Gecko Grip bottom bracket technology was awarded with the “Taipei Cycle d&I awards 2020 by iF” award. A recognition of the highly innovative technologies and materials applied by Ridea in our newest series of bottom brackets.
Gecko Grip solves many of the problems associated with Press-Fit systems; like creaking noises, loose cups, impossible to remove cups and highly specialized installing tools. Gecko Grip is a clever design with a ring that threads itself into the BB cup while you thread the BB cup into the frame. The expansion of the Gecko Grip ring presses against the frame and locks the cup allowing the ceramic bearings to move smoothly alongside your crankset. It does not matter whether your frame was manufactured with high-precision and low tolerance methods or not. The Gecko Grip will adapt to the shell shape without risking any damage to it.
No more expensive pressing tools, no more damaged frames, no more wasted time in the workshop, no more annoying riding noises. Be silent as a gecko.
