The Kountach is the standard to which all other race clinchers are measured against. With a rounded profile in conjunction with the R2C dual rubber compound giving incredible cornering control in dry or wet conditions and Iron Cloak Belt flat protection.
|Puncture Protection:||Iron Cloak Belt|
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
This Elite racing clincher features the same Iron Cloak Belt flat protection used in our tubular and R2C rubber compound on a supple 120tpi casing.
Kenda's finest road-specific competition compound that blends the best attributes of traction, speed and durability. A grippy (60 shore A durometer) compound is featured on the tyre's shoulder for cornering assurance during extreme lean angles and is paired with a fast-rolling (68 shore A durometer) centre compound rubber for straight-line speed. Both high-performance durometers are blended on the same casing for the ultimate in performance.
Iron Cloak Belt
A thin strip of Kenda's best puncture resistant material, Iron Cloak, built in directly underneath the tread rubber only, for added puncture protection and minimal weight. Iron Cloak Belt lets you rest assured that your tyres are durable, but light and super supple for the ultimate in riding performance.
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.
Kenda is one of the largest bicycle tyre manufactures in the world and with the introduction of John Tomac, often referred to as 'the greatest mountain biker ever lived' by many cycling magazines. John he has lent his expertise and wealth of experience to make Kenda the tyre of choice be it racing or casual riding.
