Submitted by Gordon a Weekend Warrior from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

Date Reviewed: July 18, 2009

Strengths:    Smooth rolling, low resistance on pavement. Good puncture resistance for light off trail use.

Weaknesses:    Not good for medium to agressive trails. Poor grip in sloppy conditions.

Bottom Line:   
If you ride agressively and like tree dodging, these are NOT the tires for you. It's a tough hybrid tire. If you ride pavement daily and still hit unpaved trails and gravel roads for fun, then this might be what you are looking for. I have about 3000 pavement miles and 150 gravel/dirt trail miles on my set with no punctures yet.

Submitted by Glenn Bacon a Weekend Warrior from Auckland New Zealand

Date Reviewed: June 14, 2004

Strengths:    Solid construction, hard wearing and good grip on the black stuff

Weaknesses:    None yet, unless they stop makin em.

Bottom Line:   
Ever fancied turning your trusty stead into a tarmac rocket! If like me winter stuffs up your favourite tracks and turns primo rides into brown custard, grab a pair of these and hit the urban single track. This is the first time i've ever owned slicks for my treadly and would'nt be without them. Solid construction throughout with a strong kevlar bead and good sidewalls (which have taken a great deal of punishment from kerb hits etc). Performance is v good, giving great confidence and traction in all conditions, allowing you to stay in contact with whatever your riding on (which always helps). Not exactly the cheapest tire on the market but you get wat ya pay for (normally). Go on you know you want em!!!!!!!!!!!!

Date Reviewed: April 3, 2004

Strengths:    Excellent hard surface riding, puncture resistent with good grip. Fast and long wearing

Weaknesses:    None really for what it is designed for, ie hard surface/roads & paths etc...

Bottom Line:   
Very pleased for what it is a path slickish tyre that wears and grips well. It resists puncturing and because of the amount of class along the paths here that a very good thing.

Very happy to recommend and I have to others.

Submitted by Martin Heldt a Weekend Warrior from Iowa

Date Reviewed: September 7, 2003

Strengths:    
The only off road driving I do is along some hardpacked river dikes. The traction is fine for that.

These things fly on asphalt. I run them at 70psi and add a good five MPH to my topspeed and 3mph to my average cruising speed.








Weaknesses:    None yet. They look like new and I've been flat free.

Bottom Line:   
I'll keep buying them as long as they keep making them.

Submitted by Fred Ryan a Weekend Warrior from Portland, Oregon, USA

Date Reviewed: June 11, 2003

Strengths:    It just holds up extremly well with hardly ever any loss of tire pressure..It corners well on wet streets (A Portland Problem)..Its the most verstile road skin that withstands abuse and gives us none of the usual grief..It is a good tire. Speed on the road and responsive on the rough trails..Corners off the paths and doesnt scar from curb hits in our inner city road work..

Weaknesses:    I suppose if their is a weakness it is the cost of the product which is moderatly high but you get what you pay for..

Bottom Line:   
When you are focused on Boxing or rideing your bike or training for whatever, fixing tires is a loss of concentration and energy you cant afford..I wish I knew of Geax earlier..I wish to thank them, they save us much time..

Bike Setup:   We are the Grand avenue Boxing Club of Portland, Oregon (est. 1949)Home to 2 teams of amateur boxers and 12 professionals.. We have always and consistently used bicycles in our training program..Trainers use one of our bicycles accompaning boxers in their usual 5 miles of road work often over rough terrain..Our boxers also use our bicycles when they have foot, Knee or Shin problems from running, We have them ride hills..Using Bicycles and the reliable Geax Tires might have something to do with the consistent honors we are winning in this sport..
