Geax Arrojo's natural replacement, a great all round performer
|Wheel Size:||26" (559)|
With the same polyvalency and low rolling resistance as last year Arrojo. A tyre that nicely falls in between the Mezcal (dry, compact) and the Barro Mountain (wet, loose).

|The casing we use for our MTBs has always been the secret behind the reliability of our products. Our T.S.R. casing offers great cut resistance, with the same flexibility and reactivity that's typical of a top range tyre. Thanks to a wise angle choice for each ply and the exclusive use of top quality polyamide fibres.|
|Simply put, a design that
makes you feel "on rails" when cornering on off-road trails.
Many, small side knobs are placed on two parallel arrays to serve
--- the ones closer to the tread centre help cornering on low-speed, small-radius bends;
--- the ones closer to the sidewall are very effective on high-speed, high-radius bends. The distance between these two knob arrays is calculated to give no undesired "grip-no grip" feeling.
|This compound was born in
order to give racers even better performing tyres and it's used in the TNT
Developed with Aramid 3d Compound in mind it's softer and helps to reduce the weight on the tread, beside giving a killer grip.
|This very high quality compound, associated with high performances products, is enhanced by three dimensional dispersion (3D) of aramid particles (aromatic polyamide polymers). This is how we can maintain an excellent grip combined with a good wear and with an exceptional resistance to cuts and flats.|

These tyres are for mountain bikes and intended primarily for off road use, the knobbly patterns provide grip when steering and traction when applying power to the pedals. There is usually a tyre to suit the conditions in which you are riding in so the right choice is important. On dry days a narrow tyre with a smoother central tread can be used, but on a wet day a wider tyre with a deeper knobbly tread pattern is essential or you could be the one in contact with the mud.
Geax's mission is to create the best mountain bike tyres you may desire for either XC, Free-Ride or Downhill applications. They know it's not easy, but easy things are not their business. From year to year they have refined their weapons, using only the best raw materials and the most advanced 3D designing softwares. They have kept passing their prototypes to the best racers for testing: who trashed their tyres all over the world, from the Australian desert to the Alps, not forgetting Alaska and the Rocky Mountains. Everybody can now see the results: a family of tyres growing every year with new treads and new technologies, constantly evolving.

The Saguaro is the latest tread from Geax, designed with lightweight construction and a low profile tread.
It's designed for dry, semi-hardpack conditions and a riding style which favours straight line speed and low rolling resistance over braking and climbing power. That said, it climbs and brakes acceptably.
Tread style is small, lateral oblong blocks with a slight chevron pattern, a lot like the venerable Bontrager Revolt.
We've ridden the tyre in all its forms and come away very impressed. It comes in wire bead (£18) or lightweight tubeless TNT clincher casings (£33). There's a fair weight difference, but performance is similar.
We also tested the first tubular version (£90). A tubular tyre is a self-contained inner tube in a fully sealed tyre which is glued onto a specific rim: advantages are you can't pinch ï¬‚at and they offer a greater level of comfort and feel for the ground, plus they weigh 630g, as opposed to the TNT version at 660g.
Tubulars require specific wheels and are very expensive. Fixing a flat isn't simple, but using tyre sealant inside the tyres - they have Presta valves with removable cores - should mean no more flats from thorns. Rips in sidewalls are more serious and will mean an expensive trip to the shop.
The grip levels are the same whichever version you choose, with the tubulars giving the most rider feedback. The Seguaro doesn't clear mud as efficiently as some, but then this is a dry tyre.
The Saguaro will fit the bill in most summer riding conditions
