Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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.

Heavy. Heavier than my 26x2.10 Kenda Nevegals, WTF?

I like them except for the weight.

Strength:

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..

Weakness:

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..

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..

Strength:

robust
wear well
excellent grip
able to do some dual duty
cheap

Weakness:

heavy
not that fast

these are great if durability is key and some rough paths are part of your journey

if you want faster, get some narrower full slicks

IMO, too heavy

Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:


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.






Weakness:

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

I'll keep buying them as long as they keep making them.

Strength:

rolls fast & smooth
looks robust
held up well to gutters and a bit of offroad

Weakness:

a bit $$
can't think of anything else

my bike flies along paths and roads, loving the smoothness and it's ability to handle rougher terrain than my IRCs. so far so good, i bashed up and down a few gutters, just ate it up, corners awesome on bitumen, hammered down a trail/stair section... no worries!

Strength:

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

Weakness:

None yet, unless they stop makin em.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!
