Strength:

weight, width, mud traction

Weakness:

a bit pricy (is that how you spell that?) 80 bones for the pair retail

I'm glad my competetion wasn't running these tires this past weekend at the WARDA RACE. go check out www.tmbra.org to see some postings. This race was probably the muddiest race in recent memory. All my pro/expert friends told to run skinny tires so i got the sedona 185's from geax. these ripped @$$ in the mud. althouh i finished a paultry 16th, i attribute my finishing at all to these tires. great trakshun in the soupy mess that was the track. I was lactic 2 and a half miles into it. gotta keep peddling though.
bottom line, the geax sedona 185 made the difference. they won't be coming off my rims anytime soon.. unless i get new rims, that is.

Strength:

Fast rolling, supple for a 1.85

Surprised at how little squirm there was on hardpack and pavement as the knobs are quite tall and narrow, plenty of traction for a racing knobby but a little heavy compared to its direct competition; about 1/4 pound more per tire. Not a bad buy but there are better choices available

Strength:

Did well in looser stuff, low rolling resistance

Weakness:

Tiny air volume, packed up with mud relatively quickly, wore extremely quickly

These were a panic tire, purchased about an hour before a race for 20 bucks for the pair. I had no idea what they were or what they would do, I knew they were skinny and light. They did okay in the mud during the race until they packed up, but sketchy cornering due to the small air volume (these could pass for cross tires) made going down switchbacks hell. After the race, about 50 percent of the knobs on my rear tire had been torn off. The back was a semi-slick after about 2 weeks, and the front soon followed. Bad tire! MSRP on these is WAY too high...
