Geax Aka 2.2 tyres, my new favorites for 2011. Previously I was a Mezcals man, with Saguaro's coming in a close second. But Geax released a superior tyre, the Aka, and the Aka in 2.2 has been permanently attached to my rims all season. You can run these bad boys at super low pressures eg. 15 psi and the rubber sticks to the ground like shit to a blanket.
I rode them at the 2011 Oceania Champs in Shepparton, Australia and they proved to not only be suitable on NZ trails but railed me to 3rd place on marblely, rocky, high speed terrain.
I can't wait to see what new tyres Geax develop in the coming years.
