    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tires that last a long time These tires are amazing. Had my first flat in a long time over the weekend and noticed my tires were getting towards the end of their life. When I checked my biking log, I had just over 5000 miles on them. I checked my previous order history and ordered the exact same tires. These tires are amazing, worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Tire I Will Use Rode across the US last summer with these tires. 3 flats. 2 if I had been able to see the nail. Hot weather, cold weather, bad roads, good roads these tires are fantastic. Nearing 4000 miles so I'm picking up a new pair whenever the old ones decide to die.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tire I purchased these tires a few months ago and have ridden probably about 1000 miles so far; mostly on paved bike trails, and occasionally on urban streets. I have yet to have a flat, though I've hit a few serious pot holes that I am certain would have sent my old tires to the garbage bin. I've had a few trips in the rain and from what I can tell, they seem fine on less than ideal surfaces. We'll see how my rainy Seattle commute goes this winter, but so far I am a fan of these tires. The only "con" I have found is that they are really difficult to put on - much harder than typical tires, but they are most definitely worth the extra effort. You'll love these tires.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5 stars for REI's return policy. Puncture resistance doesn't do any good if the sidewall explodes. I got about 200 miles out of mine before the sidewall exploded with a resounding *kapow* leaving me to walk home. I am 145 pounds soaking wet and had these inflated to 100 psi. Since there was a gaping hole in my tire, I couldn't change tubes. Very disappointing, but fortunately I bought it at REI, so I got a refund.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Tank of Tyres This tyre is great for its intended purpose. I've been commuting on them for a couple years without any trouble. These tyres are faultless so long as one keeps rubber composition in mind. The rubber on these tyres is very hard. That density is what provides much of the flat protection found in these tyres. It is also the reason the tyres are comparatively slick when wet and don't wear or grip well when cold. I wouldn't commute on these tyres in a Michigan winter. The hard rubber will be prone to lose traction. These tyres are not magic. Riding directly through goat-head puncture vine will result in punctures. There are no unicorns hiding inside the tyres. Run over a nail and it will go through. Glass, however, and steel wire fragments don't phase them at all. If the item the tyre rolls over would rather crush or crack than fight the rubber, it will be crushed rather than puncture. The wire beads are stiff. They're difficult to mount the first time or two. Like most tires they seem to loosen up with wear. The foldable bead is more forgiving. If mounting ease is a major consideration it may be worth the extra money to get the kevlar bead instead of these. Comments about these tyres being prone to snake bite flats are ridiculous. There's nothing a manufacturer can do to prevent user error.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Survives the city streets After multiple flats on an older 23c tire, I decided it was time to move all of tires over to Gatorskins. I ride 25c wire beads on my commuter and 23c foldable on my racing bike. If you're riding in the city, I would highly recommend Gatorskins. Of the 3 tires I've had in the last 2 years, Gatorskins are by far the best option for city riding. The puncture resistance is optimal and will save you time and money in the long run (having to buy new tubes, being late to work because of flat, etc)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tire I ride 4-5 thousand miles a year. These tires have been great. I would have rated them a 5, but they are a bit on the spendy side.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lasted about a year or 3,000 miles This is my second set. I ride about 100 miles a week (including 50 miles of commute) if the weather is OK. I have the tires on my REI Randonee.
