Strength:

Durable. Very, Very durable

Weakness:

Not for use offroad - but then again it's designed for ON ROAD USE only

I used these tires for over three years. For one year I was riding to work at least 15km every day and mostly took the MTB. Very durable tires. The roll pretty fast and as far as I remember didn't have massive issues with putting them on or off. They are Kevlar lined, so I never had any punctures on-road. However, I took them off-road a couple of times for a very short downhill section and INSTANTLY had a puncture. Every time! They are definitely on-road only and should not be taken off-road, unless you really put some pressure on (still risky).
Bottom line is: Use them if you want to turn yout MTB into a commuter. They will be perfect for that role and they will last ages. If you want to still go off-road, choose something else.

Strength:

Rolling resist is excellent. Very fast tire. Can transform any moutain bike into a fast commuter bike.

Weakness:

The 1.25 are very narrow and makes the wheel circumfrance very small. I feel as If the overall diameter of the tire much smaller so there for u might need to pedal more unlike a road bike.

The 1.25 are very fast...if u want your mtb to ride almost as has fast as a road bike get these tires.

Strength:

+ Excellent rolling resistance - very low
+ Rated to 100psi (though can take more)
+ OK price (paid $40 AUD)
+ durable

Weakness:

- I found it difficult to get it on/off my rim

Great tire; not too expensive, rolls smooth, pretty tough, handles really well. If you're communting or touring on tarmac then this tire is a good option - it works for me.

Strength:

Excellent street tire - soft compound with minimal siping gives fantastic grip in wet and dry.

Weakness:

Rate of wear propbably related to compund density.

Best street slick by a mile - for comfort and traction use 1.6"

Similar Products Used:

IRC Metro 2.0" and 1.5" - wire bead a bit hard and difficult to seat bead, doesn't roll as well. Michelin city just too square a profile to allow fast turns. Specialized Fatboy 1" really fast but just too skinny for everyday urban assault.

Strength:

Low resistance, excellent rolling efficiency, great on uptake, durability, long tread life, comfortable, runs at 80psi (1.6), solid grip in dry or wet conditions, cheap.

Weakness:

None...unless you think a slick should be able to perform off road.

Awesome tires, with over 5,000 miles on them and plenty of remaining rubber, zero flats, worth triple the money. Very fast, excellent cornering, even with 1.6's can roll with a lot of roadies, Will consider replacing with 1.25's, front and rear, saves a 1/4 pound off each wheel, or maybe just a 1.25 up front.

Strength:

£20 for a pair including inner tubes - bargain. So fast, what a difference compared to knobblies when riding on the road. Tread feels pretty solid, not expecting any punctures.

Weakness:

You will have poor balance at low speeds, but what do you expect on 1.2" tyres?

Brilliant tyres, no complaints whatsoever. Converted my old mountain bike for commuting to work and these tyres do the job brilliantly.

Strength:

Fast, very little rolling resistance, Light, Zero punctures

Weakness:

Don't put too much confidence in this tyre when cornering at speed

Great tyre for commuting, you can coast by other pedalling riders down hill without even pedalling. Have ridden over the unavoidable ever present broken glass on paths and road and no punctures. Have ridden over 3000 km this year and still plenty of rubber yet. One draw back is cornering at speed, never felt right with this tyre. Have previously used a slick made by Trek (couldn't find any longer)felt much surer on turns.
If there is light sprinkling of debris on track i.e. gum leaf, thin layer of dirt, etc, front wheel will slide on cornering, so if your used to leaning into fast turns you may have to switch to conservative mode in these instances, or you will be picking asphalt out of your palms.
I have noticed others reviewing this product talking about a 1.6 tyre, I have the 1.25, so this could make a difference. I would have to concur with the others, go the 1.6.
Over all very good tyre for commuting.
Cheers

Strength:

It may be the perfect commuter slick. Almost never flats, even with nothing but regular tubes, despite how frequently i'm picking out goatheads and glass from them. Fast enough.

Weakness:

None. Not the easiest tire in the world to seat, but they're not bad. Plus, no flats = no need to change.

I've had the same pair of these tires for over four years now,commuting everyday (round trip 8 miles), and they are now on my wife's rigid commuter (her commute is virtually the same as mine). The Geax are unbelievably durable. They've performed so well, it would just feel like a waste of time / money to replace them with something else, if they ever do decide to wear out. The goatheads in NM are horrible this season, and the Schwalbe Big Apples I'm now running are flatting out much more frequently than the Geax. If Geax ever enters the world of 29'er fatty slicks, I'll be the first in line to try them.
