Geax AKA Tire - 26in $0.00
High-speed in the real world.
Dry conditions call for a tire like the Geax AKA. The AKA offers quick acceleration, fast rolling, and predictable cornering on hardpack. It was also designed to tackle variable terrain like gravel, sand, and grass because, let's face it, the trail isn't always perfect. Sometimes the trail isn't even a trail.
What community has to say
I ride a lot of gravel/sand/dirt, and these tires have outstanding trail grip. Really helps for the uphill stuff too. Also good acceleration and braking, like having little rubber spikes on my tires!
They are kind of soft, so they do wear down if you ride really frequently, especially if you ride them on roads. Also somewhat thin, so if you live somewhere with Goatheads it helps to have spare tubes.

What is the difference between folding and TNT folding?
Folding bead is for standard rims that use a tube, it's lighter than the TNT casing.
Geax folding 2.0: 520 g
TNT 2.0: 610 g
Typical UST 2.0: 760 g
*Weights without tubes or sealant added
TNT stands for 'tube no tube' It's UST compatible, but requires the use of sealant.
If you're looking for added puncture resistance TNT is a good choice for standard rims, but due to the added rubber/sidewall reinforcement it'll be heaver then traditional folding tires.
While heavier than traditional tires, the TNT casing is lighter than full-on UST tires--an easy way to drop about 100g per wheel.
Geax AKA 26 X 2.0
really smooth and fast for dry hardpack. Not that great for climbing but i was aware of this before purchasing. I got just what i expected. Great tire!
As other have said, this tire rolls fast and grips well. Great on rocky, technical terrain or hardpack, it's only flaw is on super loose, pebblely (is that a word?) corners or climbs, but I will gladly take the slippage there because of the speed and traction elsewhere.
I love the directional choices for mounting, one way for speed, the other for traction. I've got the front set up for speed and the rear for traction...and love the performance.
