Dual Tread Compound
The ultimate tread compound. Kenda's L3R PRO compound (60 shore A durometer) in the centre and the cornering knobs have STICK-E compound (50 shore A durometer). The benefits are great center tread life, and great cornering control and grip. Found typically in Kenda's Legends Series and race/performance tyres.
|John Tomac Signature Series.|
|CAP or CAP PLY as it has been referred to is an added layer of material that is under the tread area and runs from bead to bead. Generally used in Kenda Premium Downhill Tires as a puncture resistant material designed to prevent pinch flats.|
|Kenda is Certified by Mavic to build tubeless tyres to the UST (Universal System Tubeless) standards. Tubeless tyres offer decreased rolling resistance for easier pedaling. By eliminating the tube, lower air pressure can be achieved and the chances of pinch flattening is eliminated.|
|The ultimate tread compound. Kenda's L3R PRO compound (60 shore A durometer) in the center and the cornering knobs have Stick-E compound (50 shore A durometer). The benefits are great center thread life, and great cornering control and grip. Found typically in Kenda's Legends Series and race/performance tyres.|
|A slow rebound rubber (50 shore A durometer) for the ultimate in grip and traction control. The slow rebound rubber acts like a form of suspension that conforms to the trail, rock or roots surface instead of bouncing off it. Used primarily on Kenda's large downhill(2.35, 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7) tyres.|
|Found mainly on Kenda's K-Generation tyres, SRC combines the best attributes of low rolling resistance, extreme durability and tread longevity into one universal package that benefits riders of all disciplines.|

|Best for use in light mud.|
|Best for Hard Pack and Dry Terrain.|
About MTB Off-Road Tyres
These tyres are for mountain bikes and intended primarily for off road use, the knobbly patterns provide grip when steering and traction when applying power to the pedals. There is usually a tyre to suit the conditions in which you are riding in so the right choice is important. On dry days a narrow tyre with a smoother central tread can be used, but on a wet day a wider tyre with a deeper knobbly tread pattern is essential or you could be the one in contact with the mud.

Magazine reviews for Kenda Nevegal DTC Folding MTB Tyre
Review from MBUK
The bigger sizes of the Nevegal have impressed us in the past, withtheir thick casing and soft rubber, but we've previously turned a bit of a blind eye to its lighter weight XC-based carcass.
It was only when we rode this tyre on the Marin Attack Trail recently thayt we realised just how good it is an an all-round XC and general thrashing tyre.
The paddle-like centre row of tread hooks up well - and clears all but the claggiest of gloop, while the intermediate shoulder knobs are fairly prominent, offering great control in off-camber situations.
The shoulder knobs are adequate for most cornering, but come unstuck a little on the irritating clay that we suffer from round here. That said, they've been great everywhere else. Our only reservation is that the casing is fairly thin, although to date we haven't had any punctures.
A great all-round tyre, available in lightweight XC through to rock-munching DH variants.

Review from Bikeradar
The often forgotten Kenda tyre range has a gem for the UK. The Nevegal 2.1 DTC's shallow, hard compound centre tread with leading edge knobs makes this a quick one in the wet.
Combine this with the softer compound yet well-supported side knobs and you have a tyre with great cornering grip.
The open, shallow tread clears quickly, but the round profile may not suit aggressive riders in turns.
Good value, tubeless-ready dual compound tyres with great wet-weather tread
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I actually run 2.5 tyres (Maxxis Swampthing) on the front and back for more grip, less force on the wheels and increased safety. These particular tyres are superb for winter time. There is a massive difference between a 2.1 and a 2.5 tyre.
Some people think that the front should be narrower to improve steering but this is not really applicable to mountain bikes. Narrow tyres on the front (and wider on the back) are used for motorbikes and some performance cars.
