Strength:

Durability, ease of UST mounting, grip.

Weakness:

Heavy

I use UST on my el-cheapo handmade training wheelset to avoid flats. Great idea, problem is, I still got flats with the Pythons, and I have no idea how to trail service a tire you can't use tire irons on. Anybody know how to remove these things without tire irons? At my shop I get a team of guys to pull these off with our hands, but on the trail, if you get a flat, you hike it out. Panaracer UST was absolutely horrible, $100 down the drain.
Enter this GEAX UST tire, which I bought when my pythons gave out on me on the trail. Mounted very easily by hand, and has not flatted in the year I have owned it. I have beaten the crap out of this tire. If you have ever ridden Maryland's Gambril blue trail... it is one of the most technical, sharp, rocky rides in the nation. I run this tire at 40 psi, it just works. Grips well on rock too, though not as fast and grippy on dusty hardpack as a python. I've worn the tread to the bone, the sparse thin knobs wear easily in the center line, so expect to buy a new tire after about 1200 miles.
The reason GEAX's tubless tires are so heavy is that the actually deliver the promise of UST. You can mount and unmount this thing by hand, and it won't flat. I wouldn't race on it, but for all-around, it absolutely rules.

Strength:

a tubeless tire rolls just fine, but I can't tell if this one is better or worse than other tubeless tires...

It's giving a good grip in dry conditions and also on ice, but in muddy conditions the performance is not that good

Weakness:

only after a short time I noticed the tires got flat, only a day after inflating them. The air gets out about 1 mm above the rim

A good tire for dry conditions, but only for short rides because of the loss of pressure (in my case...)
