Bottom Line:   
This is for the 29er 2.2 TNT version. After installing a Geax AKA on the rear tire and really liking it, I decided to try this on my front tire. I have found this to be an excellent tire for desert riding and it for a knobby it rolls faster than others I have tried. I usually run around a 2.4 on the front but decided to start out with the 2.2 to see how it performs. No sense pushing around a heavier tire if it's not really necessary. I was happy enough with how it performs that I have not felt the need to replace it with the 2.4. It feels stable and sure footed, and does great with sand, rocks, gravel, hard pack, and wet sand with muddy patches. I cannot speak to how it would do in a consistently wet environment with wet and slippery rocks, roots, etc. I run tubeless and both Geax TNT tires hold air really well better than others I have used.

This is a fairly stiff tire so to get good performance from it you may need to lower your air pressure. I’m a small rider so usually run around 18-20 psi on other brands. I had to lower it to 15 psi for this tire. It has a foldable bead but it’s fairly stiff making it difficult to get on and off the rim of my Bontrager Rhythm Elite wheels. I never had any trouble getting tires on and off rims in the old days of rims designed for tubes but I really struggle with tubeless rims and tires. Since I went tubeless I usually have a bike store install my tires because they can do in minutes what would take me a long time and lots of naughty words to accomplish. A friend and I managed to install this tire but it was struggle. I’m not sure I could get this, or other tubeless tires for that matter, on and off the rim by myself so that worries me a bit, but a lot of that depends on your wheel, as well as hand strength and skill level with changing tires. The upside is that it seats very well on the rim. I’ve had it for three months and ride about every other day. So far it’s proving to be quite durable.
