Designed by Eric Carter, for the rider who prefers a more open tread pattern, with the elimination of the transition knob and flattening of the center knobs for better terrain conformity.
|Wheel Size:||26" (559)|
|Eric Carter 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.|
|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.|
|Best for Rough and Rocky Terrain.|
|Best for use in thick mud.|
|Best for Hard Pack and Dry Terrain.|
|Kenda's latest super soft and slow rebounding rubber compound (42 shore A durometer) takes grip and traction to a whole new level. As equally adept at holding onto wet slippery roots as it is on dry hot rubble, all while providing its own form of suspension through rebound control. Developed with the gravity rider in mind and tested by professional downhillers and slalom riders, this race only compound is not your everyday training tyre. Found only on Kenda's premium downhill and freeride tyres.|
|SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tyre technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.|
Downhill and Freeride tyres are designed with a lot of factors in mind, they take a lot of abuse at speed so need to be strong, reliable and grippy. Key factors are: Mud clearance, this is how quickly the tyre clears its grip, a clogged tyre will not grip or track. Directional tread, a front tyre needs to track on corners and a rear tyre needs to grip when accelerating so tread patterns will often vary from front to rear. Width, wider tyres will sit above the mud and narrow tyres will cut through it, DH tyres are available in widths of upto 2.7” for wet conditions, the most common choices are 2.35” or 2.5” as these offer good all round performance in most conditions. Compounds, some brands will list a rubber compound, soft compound tyres like the 40a will offer superior grip to a 60a, but will not offer as much tread life due to the softer compound. Sidewalls, a DH tyre will have a thicker sidewall to enable it to be run at a lower pressure and minimise the risk of pinch punctures. This also offers more surface contact with the ground and maximises grip on corners.
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.
