The tread pattern makes for predictable cornering on all surfaces and the connected central knobs make acceleration and speed maintenance nearly effortless. Suited for applications ranging from XC racing to big-hit slopestyle, the Saguaro is the perfect do-it-all tire.
29x2.2 is the perfect balance in width for great cornering and low rolling resistance
Comments about GEAX Saguaro 29x2.2 Wire Bead Mountain Tire:
These came stock on my Kona Mahuna. They have good bite and roll fast over smooth terrain, even pavement with no vibration effect. They don't seem to puncture easily and I have put over 1000 miles on them and they still have plenty of tread left. Certainly not something a pro or a gear snob will be looking to buy, although they do make this tire in a folding bead too. The only issue I had is that they are fat for their size. I had front derailleur clearance issues and had to switch out the rear tire for a 2.1 of another brand. I don't fault Geax for that though, I blame Kona for not recognizing clearance issues.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
