    Strengths:    rolls well, smooth ride quality with good grip in most conditions.

    Weaknesses:    have had better traction on loose, sandy climbs.

    Bottom Line:   
    excellent smooth ride quality with great cornering. grip in the loose climbs could be better but its not bad. very good xc tire. larger volume would help.

    Strengths:    good tread wear, supple ride low rolling resitance

    Weaknesses:    it packs up and slips easily in mud, lacks tread depth

    Bottom Line:   
    this tire is good in the corners in the dry, but it just needs more drive grip. the tire is racey fast, very good rolling resistance. I dont think it is the best for my kind of riding, it is more of a hardpack thing and it gets loose. The front is fantastic though. Nevertheless, I cannot speak for everyone. I wish all tires would have this things treadwear though. the front is still going stong and I am on my third rear. I suied to go through 3 tires a year before these things.

    Strengths:    Low rolling resistance. Quiet on road. Excellent traction here in S. Texas.

    Weaknesses:    None.

    Bottom Line:   
    I put this tire on our Hardrock to replace the horrible stock tire. It runs quiet on the highway for commuting and 20-50 mile recreational rides and sticks awesomely well under all dirt conditions so far. Beaumonts are my favorite tire. I just wish they made a ballon version for the front of my rigid.

    Strengths:    easy to put on. Look cool. Good for stock tires hammert r

    Weaknesses:    don't work so great, weight.




    Bottom Line:   
    These tires are not the best for xc. They are pretty good at dh. They increase the rolling resistance alot, even compared to my beefy conti traction pros. They aren't the greatest climbers in the world, because they don'e have the tallest knobs. They are also the coolest looking tires out there, so if you don't care about xc performance, you should get these.

    Strengths:    
    --Excellent cornering stability, especially when used with a Beau front.
    --Rolls fast, pedals easy.
    --Lightweight.
    --Long wearing.


    Weaknesses:    
    --Doesn't climb and brake as well on the rear as the Geax Hook, Grid or Blade.
    --NOT a mudder. (mutha?)


    Bottom Line:   
    Fast and great handling on medium/hardpack. Corners hard and tight, no squirm of any kind. Swaps a little when braking hard on rock or hardpack.

    Strengths:    
    Won't let you down.


    Bottom Line:   
    These are great. I've tried them at 45, 40, 35, 32 and 30 psi. I'm light, so I don't usually blow them landing at 30 psi (well,sometimes...). At these lower pressures they climb like you wouldn't believe! Have to recommend themn stronly. I wanted a matching front/back pack, and I'm glad Bicycle Sportshop recommended these.

    Strengths:    
    pedals very smoothly, corners well


    Weaknesses:    
    WEIGHT__610g


    Bottom Line:   
    another great tire from geax.
    this tire pedals very well, almost like a semi slick. it climbs well (but i can climb on a 23mm road tire), and corners VERY well. i dont rely on the rear for much, but have to admit that it slides out much less than the super-x currently on the bike (super-x is much lighter, so it stays for now, with the beau front).
    the tire is geared more for decreased rolling resistance than uphill traction--but it still climbs. *if you like an aggressive rear for climbing, you might like the hook or blade better.
    after the super-x wears out, i will use the 2.0 sedona on the rear.
    these tires seem to clear mud pretty well too (though i dont ride much mud).
