Strengths:    Durability, traction, sidewall strength, work great in Tubeless application allowing you to run lower pressures.

Weaknesses:    maybe weight

Bottom Line:   
Been running the same set of Genius's for the past 16 months with over 2000 miles on rocky, rooty single track and some pavement inbetween. The rear has almost no rolling resistance but yet there's still some knob left on the center and they still rail the corners. This set of tires has been on three different bikes...always my primary ride. The only drawback I've found with these tires is in slimy mud they tend to lose their grip but the trend cleans it's self really well after rolling out of it.

Strengths:    good grip, decent weight and solid durability

Weaknesses:    not super fast rolling

Bottom Line:   
great tire. I like the wide profile that is not too tall for trails that have a lot of vertical (helps feel like another lower gear). I don't like relatively short sidewall in trails that have lots of square edges (risk of rim damage or pinchlfats).

Strengths:    Very grippy. Don't pack up with mud. Fast for a tire this grippy and heavy, great value for
The money. Mount tubeless fairly easily. Very durable

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, hardly notice the weight.

Bottom Line:   
I work in a shop and this tire has pleasantly surprised even local racers.

Strengths:    Wet and dry traction, cornering, ease of mounting, looks like a MTB tire, no burp when ran tubeless at 28psi rear, 26psi front, on a notubes rim, less than $40 each, tough sidewalls, they do not show a lot of wear after 1000km, work great front and rear

heavy, stout sidewalls require lower pressure than other 29er tires ( I ride most tires at 28 F / 30 R, these ones need about 2 psi less at my weight to be great, Only one 29er size available. Exciting levels of vibration on asphalt.

Bottom Line:   
I love these tires, I have three 29ers, a SJ FSR EVO and 9er EMD SS with these tires front and rear, the 3rd bike is a 9er EMD with Ardent Front and Igniter Rear. If the trails will be the slightest bit wet, I ride one of the first two bikes, if the day will be perfectly dry, I'll sport the third. These tires, when properly inflated, will improve your trail riding. You will not notice how well these tire work until you switch to something else, then you will be thinking..Why are my tires sliding here, I rode this trail last week and was railing it, now today I am all over the place, Oh yea, I was running the Psycho Genius’s last week…. Guess I’ll have to put them back on…Anyway, once you get past the weight and vibration on roads, you will enjoy these tires for what they were designed to do, stick to trails.

Date Reviewed: January 24, 2012

Strengths:    Works really well in most all conditions, easy to mount tubeless (at least on Stan's rims), rolls surprisingly well, tough construction and good pricing.

Weaknesses:    A bit on the heavy side.

Bottom Line:   
A great all around rear tire (personally do not like such a round profile tire for the front). 40+ grams lighter it would be about perfect.

Hmmm...Toga Psycho Genius 29, anyone?

Looks interesting. Has anyone had a chance to get their hands on these? I'd take some input on the 26" version. I used to really like Tioga tires back in the ol' 26er days. LosRead More »
