      Low rolling resistance.
      Good road tire.
      Corners well.
      They are labelled as 1.6" width but
      seem narrower. More like a 1.5"
      Tire made by Vittoria.

        Comments about GEAX Streetrunner MTB Tire:

        I like the tread pattern. It looks conducive to a tire that has the speed qualities of a race bike and yet has a good amount of tread capable of going on paths that are more challenging than asphalt covered paths.

          Comments about GEAX Streetrunner MTB Tire:

          I replaced a pair of Nashbar tires with this tire - only reason was they did not fit tightly on the rim - these tires fit tighter on the rim and seem to have a thicker tread. Seem to ride very smooth and can be pumped up to a high PSI/MB if needed for smooth road riding.

            This is a very unique tire design with a road bike center with more aggressive tread on the outer side. The tires are not really meant to go off the road. It certainly a good cross between a mountain tire and road tire. You cant beat the price. I have not put enough miles on them to comment as to their durability, but performance is good thus far.

              Have put 3,200 miles on them using my mountain bike for short tours with up to 45 pound loads, errands in town, and off road on smooth dirt and fine gravels on a railtrail. Much faster and smoother than knobbies. Only 1 flat so far! Have a flat about every 400 miles on knobbies with their thin casings. Sidewalls holding up great and still about half the life left on the tread. Still use knobbies in the winter mud and slick leaves, but the Geax are perfect for their intended use.

                I have installed countless tires before and I tryed putting these 26in tires on my 26in alex rims and the tires seamed about an inch too small. I broke my plastic tire installing tools and poped two tubes (correct size for the tire) before I said screw it and put my dirt tires back on. The tires now sit in my garage.

                  Bought these tires to convert my wife's mountain bike to one she could use around the neighborhood and on short rides on paved roads in our area. Having used these same tires on my own bike years ago, I can attest to their low rolling resistance and durability.

                    I commute every day on these tires. I switched out some town and country tires for these. These roll much better. I honestly can't say anything about the wear yet. Give me 6 months

                      Comments about GEAX Streetrunner MTB Tire:

                      I've had these tires on my commuter for two summers, or about 1000 miles. Good traction and a comfortable ride. They're a little on the fat side, so rolling resistance could be better, but the extra width has its pluses on the occasional dirt or gravel stretch. Recently, I noticed small cuts on both the front and rear, so I will be replacing them. Other than the cuts, they've held up well. I would consider them a good value. Not the fastest or lightest tire, but nice for those who want a comfortable ride on a tough, mixed surface, urban route.
