anyone use an Ayup Gecko light mount?
Yep i use one on a Giro Hex with no problems. Velcro is plenty secure enough and actually really useful if you clout the light off a low branch etc. The velcro lets go rather than pass the force through the light/helmet to your head/neck.
I pass the lead through one of the vents at the rear of the helmet and then up and out one of one at the top just behind the mount just to make it a bit more secure aswell.Posted 4 years agomeeeeeMember
yeah i know i could leave it on. Weights not the issues – got a nice swoopy sleek new helmet with lots of vents and thought would be nice to have a mount i can quickly remove for the road, instead of having that odd bit of rubber sticking up like it does with my current ayup mount!Posted 4 years ago
The gecko system is fantastic!
The only issue that I’ve had is getting replacement velcro dots of similar quality. They’re available from Ay Up, but shipping is a killer if ordered by themselves.
A new helmet meant new loop dots were needed. So I bought a bunch online, but they’d randomly peel off. I just ordered some more supposedly genuine Velcro brand, so we’ll see how they do.Posted 4 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
Mine and the wife’s work just fine. Two of my dots actually sit in the vent rather than on the surface and works well.
Two little tips, stick the Velcro to the gecko, then the gecko to the helmet.Posted 4 years ago
Second, make sure the soft half of the Velcro goes on the helmet otherwise your lid will snag the rest of your kit.epicycloSubscriber
It’s a really clever system, and works very well. It’s one of the reasons I keep using my AyUps although there are other lights as good now.
As Onzadog says, make sure the soft bits go on the helmet!
Also spend time making sure your intended mounting is straight. A degree out becomes a real nuisance after a couple of hours.Posted 4 years agomicos145Member
We’ve been using ours for two winters now without any issues. Riding last week I noticed some feedback from my helmet and had to stop it had got so annoying. I was convinced the velcro had finally given up. My riding partner noticed I needed to tighten the battery holder strap. Job done.
Only irritation in two years use. We bought the two full set kits, still have a bunch of spares and it all looks and works like new.Posted 4 years ago
