Features: • Small Block Eight • Excellent hard pack XC race tire • 8 Nevegal shaped but smaller knobs across the tire for better 'bite' • DTC - Dual Tread Compound offers cornering grip with faster center line acceleration • One of the fastest rolling tires in the Kenda Premium line • Kenda has been certified by Mavic to build tubeless tires to the UST (Universal System Tubeless) standards. UST standards test a tire’s air retention, ease of mounting and dismounting, bead elasticity, high-pressure limits, and the tires ability to remain seated to the rim under low pressure situations. Tubeless tires offer a distinct advantage over conventional tires in ride quality and flat resistance. Because there is no tube, the tire can be run with approximately 10%-15% less air pressure than conventional tires. The result is improved traction in rough conditions and elimination of “pinch flats”. Tires can be repaired in the field with the use of a patch kit or a tube.
