DHEA: The New Tire For DH and FR
GEAX White Collection
Year after year, Geax family of mtb tyres grows and evolves. Even if cross-country competition is Geax roots and history, more and more this Italian-designed brand is moving closer to the "free" spirit of mountain-biking, such as enduro, free-ride and street/urban assault. This is done of course keeping a constant eye on quality and performance, thanks to Vittoria S.p.A., company that in 1997 created Geax brand, using the advanced technologies and the deep know-how developed inside the exclusive segment of bicycle tires for over 50 years.
New product development is carried out through endless field tests, thanks to the constant collaboration with important racing teams and enthusiasts: XC race, XC marathon, X-dirt (triathlon off-road), 24h races, 4 Cross, DH, free-style, urban assault, BMX... whatever the speciality, our tyres receive the "care" of technicians and bikers, until they're just right.
But let's see more in detail who, in the professional scene, has chosen Geax as exclusive tire supplier to fulfil at best their competition goals in the current season.
Among the teams, we count in Italy Team Olympia, Ktm International, Team Scott, Ikudei-Cytech-Galmod and Team Protek; in France Team Cube, De Vinci Pro Race, Team Bordeloup; in Poland Team Lotto-PZU (team of Maja Wloszczowska, silver medal in 2004 MTB World Championships), in Holland Team Magura.
Through the close relationship with these professional teams, popular bikers such as Ludovic Dubau, Marzio Deho, Yader Zoli, DanieleBruschi, Alessandro Checuz and Franz Hofer, not only race and win on Geax ultimate tires, but also very often test the next season's prototypes. Extensive field testing helps Geax product & marketing team to refine and launch the new tires and accessories.
Besides the official teams, Geax sponsors some elite single athletes, like French XTerra superstar Nicolas Lebrun, mountain-biker Tim Heemskerk (Holland) and Paolo Alberati (Italy), trial champion Alberto Limatore and free-style/ramp master Fabio Limonta.
