On the heels of the Kenda Excavator tire is then new Kenda Nexcavator. This tire promises to be grippier and faster than its predecessor.
- 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
- A distinctive biting edge that will cut into the terrain, holding the tire in place as you arc through a turn
- Great design for dry or wet conditions
- Weight for the 2.35 folding is 733 grams
Another exciting tire is the Happy Medium. It features a low profile center knob pattern for speed and good rolling resistance. But lean the tire over and you get some real knobs on the side. It is a…. happy medium between speed and cornering.
- A universal design that is applicable to all types of riding and racing; fast rolling center with aggressive outside edge for cornering assurance
- Downhill version veatures 2-ply constuction and Stick-E rubber; Cross-country versions feature light-weight single-ply casings and DTC rubber
- Front and Rear application
And finally, Kenda is further supporting our theory that 29ers is the emerging market of mountain bikes. They are growing their line from 5 29er tires to 10 in 2012.
