A gas spring bears the weight of a bicycle during the loading and unloading of the upper level on two tier cycle stands.
- This important feature means that top tier parking spaces are accessible to cyclists of all abilities, as they are able to park their bicycle without having to physically lift it onto the upper level
- Without a gas spring, some cyclists may struggle to load their bicycle into the parking space
- A gas spring also acts as a noise reducing feature. This is an issue that can arise with non-gas two tier systems when the lowering of trays can be very loud.
- Gas springs have a long lifespan, the 2ParkUp is tested to 20,000 movements with and without a bike, ensuring that the spring does not loose its strength over time.
