Designed with aggressive tread pattern, Kenda’s spike tires, called the King of Tractions, guarantees reliable grip in nasty mud. Resistance is kept rolling down by the tires’ lower central knobs and the very hard porcelain-like rubber compound.
On the other hand, this very hard rubber compound has a downside. Riders will find it evident that on damp or hazily slimy surface, especially where there are roots, minimal surface area contact is provided by the V-shaped cross-section with the rough terrain.
To tackle wet and loose terrain with maximum tread clearing and traction, the 2011 Kenda King of Traction Mountain Bike Tire is made with aggressive knobs. Giving the bike sufficient grip on thick mud are the thin, round casing cuts of the tire.
