Geax tyres – Any experiences to report?
I had a bad expeience with a Datura TNT last Winter when I tried it tubeless on Flows.Posted 4 years ago
On its first ride, the rubber around the bead separated from the kevlar string and it went with a bang as I was landing a small drop.
Returned it and received a refund.
I know it’s hardly a scientific study with a sample size of one. Might just have been a random manufacturing fault but it was enough to put me off.The Swedish ChefMember
Raced them last year and this, I’m a big fan of them, (also of Vittoria, the parent company, for road use).
Used the Aka, Saguaro, and Mexcal. All tubeless, some with TNT, some not, no issues so far.
Sorry no experience of either of the ones you’ve mentioned.Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
I have barromountain on my voodoo – great in the dry, bobbins in the mud cos they don’t shed and turn the tyre into one big slick, however they were the tyres that came on it when I wheeled it out of halfords so may be a budget version… work better at higher pressures also, tubed so can’t comment on TNTPosted 4 years agobikeryder85Member
I have been running GEAX (AKA TNT 2.2) for 2 seasons now. Fast, tough, and bombproof tubeless (DTswiss rims). I run them with about 20psi, no problems with them so far. The fit is tight on the rims, but shouldn’t be a problem as long as you are not running stans (or similar) rims. If you are running a BST style rim the get the standard folding type and they will work fine tubeless.Posted 4 years agoCandodavidMember
Been running Gato TNT on my SS, Halo Vapour rims, easy to get on not like a Stans rim, running about 19psi.Posted 4 years ago
Well impressed in the real schlocky mud on Mendip this
winterwet season. Cleared easily, and impressive grip on wet rocks.
Going back to Saguaro and AKA for the
summerhopefully not wet seasontrailhoundSubscriber
Used a datura tubeless on the rear the last two winters, not a bad wet weather/mud tyre at all, plenty of predictable grip over most terrain types and decent wear rate too. No trouble setting up tubeless on a mavic crossmax st. Reckon it could be time to start thinking about getting it swapped for a (dare I say it) something a bit more suited to drier weather!Posted 4 years ago
