The Notch Gecko aluminum climbing spikes with DMM shanks are a complete spike set with tree gaffs.
Shanks built by DMM for longer extended periods of wear in the tree without the fatigue. The shank is now 3D instead of flat. Weighs the same at the traditional Light Weight Notch Geckos. The stirrup is wider and slanted.
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. Notch 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 Notch 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.
