Geax Saguaro Whitewall TNT 2.2in £30

Fast summer tyre but slippery when wet

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

Cross-hatched centreline tread and small lugs all round mean this is primarily a fast summer roller, and it gives up grip quickly in mud, wet woods or greasy rocks. 

As well as the Cadillac looks it offers appropriately smooth, fast-rolling performance but it's heavy, awkward to fit and also fairly slippery when wet. One for riders who want high speed matched with Huggy Bear looks.

The TNT tubeless-ready design potentially adds low-pressure survivability, but makes it as heavy and stiff as most full tubeless tyres

Lifespan is good, though, and standard black versions are decent value at £26.95.

This tread slips in between the Mezcal dry race and Barro looser/ muddier tyres. Geax is growing in popularity in the UK, and the pimp-ass white Saguaro will definitely win fans with its unique and attractive styling.
