Description

The Geax Saguaro is able to handle a wide range of conditions. And as 27.5-inch tire, it's both an all-mountain and enduro gem -- a folding tire that handles all conditions, but excels in the dry hardpack.

This is due to the knobs attached to an uninterrupted ridge down the center of the tire. That's for a steady ride on the hard stuff, but the knobs spread out towards the shoulder so that they are able to dig into the trail when cornering on loose dirt. The 'C-shaped' shoulder knobs right above the sidewall will hold your line when you're maxed out.

Tread is, however, only one part of the tire story. Almost as important is the casing underneath. The Geax TNT casing is made from a cloth that has 120 threads per inch -- quite supple by mountain bike standards. The sidewalls are also reinforced with nylon in order to minimize both cuts and folding when riding at low-pressure. Holding the tire onto the rim is a traditional folding Aramid bead. The tires can be run front or rear, and if you need a little more dig in the rear, reverse the tread direction for more of a 'scoop' effect.

The Geax Saguaro 27.5-inch Tire is available in the color Black and in a 2.0-inch width. Please note that this tire is also available in either a folding or TNT design.

I bought these tires mostly because of the price. In retrospect, I should have bought a wider tire, 2.0 is super narrow and throws me around, but c'mon, $15 is hard to beat. I have gone over some really intense rock gardens in them, and they have not been as stable as I wanted, but the durability is fantastic. No punctures, no tears and very little wear on the treads. I'm running tubeless as well, and they popped on to the bead with just a hand pump. They leak about 5-10 PSI over the course of a few days, but thats an easy fix. Attached is a photo showing approx. 100 miles of Durango trails (i.e. smooth single track and fast, technical rock gardens). Now only if backcountry sold this tire in a 2.3 or 2.4 at the same price....

Decent Tire - At an Awesome Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As a huge fan of Geax and Vittoria tires I used to run the Sagauro in the rear and loved the roll of the tire.

If you are running a tubeless set-up I'd highly recommend going with the TNT's (Tube-no-Tubes). When running my tire set up I preferred having the Sagauro 2.0 in the rear and throwing a Geax Goma 2.25 in the front.

One thing to note with these tires is they roll very well, but if you plan on riding more technical and jagged trails it can be a bit vulnerable to punctures and flats (gotta go with the tubeless set up - I'd recommend the Stan's no Tube Sealant).

Overall, it's a decent tire - I'd give it 3.5 stars, but for the price I had to bump it up to 4 starts.

not sure what�s the difference in with the folding and the TNT versions could you clarify?

my bike currently has the tires with internal tuve, so in order to make the tubeless upgrade, what wshould i do? what other option of tire could i get considering the tipe of tires i currently use? thanks in advance
