I've been riding these tires for about 5 months now with no issues whatsoever. I set these up on some non-tubeless ready Easton's, added some Stan's NoTubes and put these raw UST's on! The tires have been very grippy and have been great for the S. Florida trails ( Lots o' roots/Sandy/hard packed/man made obstacles ). I originally had a fear they might blow out since the rim isn't UST ready, but am now confident and am not holding back on the trails. Since I've had this new setup I've been taking obstacles that before were problematic. Steep inclines have become less challenging. 2 weeks ago I forgot to check the PSI's or add air, rode all day with no issue. Later found out I was riding at 24 PSI's!! That alone makes me trust this tire even more and give it 5 starts. These are the dirty dirt!
How many grams does this bad boy weigh?
This tire came with my Jamis XC Sport and have been riding them for over a year. This was my "beginner" bike and so some hard riding, crashing and hard knocks came with the territory. Overall, I think its great. I've had only one flat and it's more my fault than the tire as I lowered the PSI to about 28 for the rooty trails of Oleta. The tire is still running strong with plenty of tread life, I also do alot of road rides so this is surprising. I'm giving it 4 stars cuz as a Novice rider I'm convinced there is a tire better out there. Or, I've just been spoiled by the folks over at Jamis. I'm converting to tubeless so I can run lower PSI's so I decided to go with some new tread. I may end up missing these Geax's.
