OMG this tire work perfectly!
I try into the mud of a slue (water was not present, but the tire sink a lot; all the valve in the rim was below the mud) but anyway I was able to continue to ride the bike. I try also in the gras that tis tire allow me to make very fast cornering, because they have a lot of grib in the corner due to the lateral knobs. The rock on my place are not present but I try to ride for a short path along the railway and the tire works very good also in this situation (epecially if you keep the pressure at the minum suggested from Geax). The only condition were they are not very good is in the dirt path (when they are hard and dry). In conclusion awesome.

I live in florida, and my main trail largely consists of packed sand covered in dry oak leave and pine needles. It is also very twisty so traction is a serious issue. As soon as I got these on (replacing the stock wtb prowlers) the fishtailing on turns I had grown accustomed to went away almost completely. Three rides in I had completed several sections which had stymied me in the past. And was going so much faster everywhere else that I actually started crashing more. (this is a good thing)

I have now put over 200 miles on them and they are going strong. The traction is still great, the edges are still fairly sharp and they are showing almost no general wear.

installation was a bit tricky. they are very tight, but if you get them centered and use pressure to seat them the go on smoothly. I have not tried a tubeless install yet. (that is my next upgrade) but tubed they seem to work fine.

one other note is that they stay much cleaner than my previous tires. something about the rubber sheds mud and sand very nicely. This both helps with traction as I am not dumping sand on top of the already slippery pile of dry leaves, but makes it much nicer when cleaning up. I can usually just hit my bike with a broom and not feel guilty bringing it in to the house.

I'm not going to win any races or prize money, so my review might not be as critical, but for a regular rider out to have fun here goes:

Fitting
1) I did the Tubeless conversion myself as per instructions, with a little soap spray, tire seated easy.
2) Went to the filling station and used their compressed air for seating on the rim, 5 seconds and its done.
3) Let the air out inserted the liquid, re pumped at filling station, job done.
Riding
What a pleasure, experiment to find the right pressure that suits you (I weight 75kg and ride at 17psi) and its like having a train on rails, from hard pack gravel, tar, sand, mud, loose gravel it will handle it all. Yes it will feel like it is slipping on some realy loose surfaces, but you know that you are in control.
