Strengths:    Bullet proof! Super traction and you can run ultra low PSI. Ive had this on my Titius FTM for 2 riding seasons and am just now experiencing abit of slip as the tire is about 3/4 worn. I ride in nasty rocky sections that typically tear knobbies off everytime you ride...not the GEAX!

Weaknesses:    Little heavy if your a racer...im far from a weight weenie...i want to make it home not worry about a flat.

Bottom Line:   
If you want a tough tire that holds up to the nasty rocks in AZ or the SW this is a great tire!

Submitted by Roll em if ya got em a Cross Country Rider from Boulder, Colorado

Date Reviewed: December 1, 2009

Strengths:    The Geax Lobo Loco 2.3 UST was easy to seat and has proven to be an exceptional tire. I have ridden this tire on variable Colorado and Washington terrain and found it handles well on hardpack, loose, slick rock, tacky, and fairly well in muddy or sloppy conditions.

Although it is labeled as a freeride tire, I ride it as a cross country and all mountain tire and it performs exceptional well. At speed, it gives a fairly low rolling resistance feel (I think the Kenda Nevegals are a bit faster) and carries speed well.

Links up and hooks well on sweeping turns or tighter switchbacks, particularly on hardpack or tacky trails. Has a smooth transition and comfortable feel as the bike tips further and further, continually holding if you are pressuring it.


Weaknesses:    They seem just a bit flat on the center-line (where the "X" pattern hits the trail), so a tad choppy in the first part of tipping into a turn, super minute though. Certainly not a tragic flaw. Perform so-so in sandy and soft dry turns...such is life.

Geax does not make this in a 29er version that I am aware of.

Additionally, a FYI piece, not a weakness, I did not get the traditional pop or snap when seating these, ended up blowing one of them off the rim by accident.


Bottom Line:   
Great tire; links-up well in variable conditions and has proven to be durable and performance oriented. Buy em', love em', roll em' if ya got em'.

Strengths:    2.3 TnT version: price, Tube-no-Tube technology, grip, weight, low roll resistance, durable, good volume, great tread design.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Please support Tube no Tube (TnT).

I think this version of tubeless is absolutely brilliant! I use Stan's with my UST tires anyway, so the fact that TnT saves 100g per tire is awesome. And, I really feel the reduced weight when climbing. It's actually made climbing fun again.

Normally mountain bike parts are about compromise, but with these tires it feels like having your cake and eating it too. Outstanding product!

Rear to partner a Geax 2.1 Lobo loco front

As the title say's what tire would be best to compliment a Lobo loco ust. Up until today I'd never gave geax tires a thought but the lobo loco looks very good on paper. So I thought maybe a AKA would be ok on the rear any other suggestions from the Geax lineup? Oh yeah general XC riding on for ... Read More »

Geax Lobo Loco picture of wear(or lack of)

Here is a picture of a Lobo Loco I have been running on the front of my Motolite. It was installed on a Mavic Crossride wheelset, ghetto tubeless and ran with 25-29psi. So far it has been ridden for about 4 hours at Gooseberry Mesa. 20 miles on a Hemlock Lake, Oregon ride. 30 miles of North Umpq ... Read More »

It sealed up well ghetto tubeless, and has a tough sidewall. So far have ridden it at Gooseberry Mesa, a few rides in Oregon, 2 ... Read More »
