Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire

Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire

The Honey Badger just ‘don’t care.’ The Kenda Honey Badger Pro tire is designed to be aggressive enough to rip through loamy conditions, roll smoothly over hard pack and rock, dig through loose- over- hard terrain, and just be an all around great mountain bike tire. The Honey Badger is perfect for a variety of conditions. Upgrade the part of your bike that actually touches the trail, your tires! This version of the Honey Badger Pro features Kenda's SCT technology. SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tire technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems. Kenda's DTC technology allows you to maintain high speeds without sacrificing traction. DTC is 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 tread life and great cornering control and grip.

  • TPI: 120
  • Compound: DTC
  • Bead: Folding
  • Tire size: 26"
  • Weight: 715+/-36(2.20)

A great tire will buy again!

Comments about Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire:

I am fortunate to have some of the best single track in the Midwest at my back door the "Palos Triangle" where conditions vary from sweet fast clay, dense loam, exposed at any angle tree roots, and rock. These Honey Badgers don't care and grip through all! After a few rides the you learn the angle and speeds that these will acomadte and when you find the limit it's a controlled drift that you can roll off from! I run the front at 30PSI and rear at 40PSI I weigh in at 180lbs on a full suspension 26" rig. Enjoy!!!

Comments about Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire:

I used it on my MTB bike on a cross race. It had rained and there was lots of loose mud. These tires would go over the mud like nothing...Great grip on the hard pack sections as well as the slushy stuff.

Comments about Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire:

Okay, so it's hard to rate something when you've only ridden them three times, but here goes.
Disclaimer: I am a 56 year old female who is not super aggressive but am no sissy, either. Not a tire expert.
I was happy within 100 meters of riding these tires. Good gripping on corners and I felt confident on the downhills when picking up speed. I've ridden mostly dry conditions and they're doing fine. So far, happy camper and I feel like a hard@ss riding a tire named Honey Badger. My friends are jealous. Did not get this attention with my Rocket Rons. Just sayin'

Comments about Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire:

Ran it as rear with a Nevegal X Pro out front on a full suspension Giant Trance. Used mainly in the Cottonwood trails of the Las Vegas desert. Badger was surprisingly high volume and measured wider than the 2.35 Nevegal. It mounted very easily tubeless with only a floor pump on Mavic UST wheels. Was a good looking and lighter weight option for a rear. Enjoyed riding with it although the braking grip is lower than others, consistent with what many others reviewed. The center tread went fairly quickly; lasted less than 3 months of average 15 mile rides 2-3 times a week. First one developed a massive herniated bulge which retired the tire. Since it was the sealant compatible version I contacted Kenda and they promptly sent me a replacement. The second one did not have the same adverse reaction to Stan's, but it provided the same meager useful duration before the center tread wore down. Had a lot of fun running the tire while it lasted. Did well on both the techy grinds and rocky bombs. Never had an issue with the grip while the tread was in useful range. I'd estimate the front Nevegal was at roughly 50% tread life after having gone through both Badgers. Never had sealing or burping issues and the sidewall held up well despite the occassional curbing of rocks. Impressed with tire aside from the tread life it offered while used in the dry rocky terrain out here. The lower price might be an acceptable trade-off and YMMV depending on where you ride.

    I tried the badger for it's light weight and faster climb. Yes it did roll faster, but it lost way to much traction in both climb and downhill. Side knobs are to small

    Comments about Kenda Honey Badger Pro 26" Tire:

    Awesome tires for a rear tire, Using the Kenda NEvegal 2,2 for the front and the Honey Badger for the rear, You can hear the grip when it digs into the ground when peddling but surprisingly it dosent slow you down too much, What I'm most astounded is the level of grip I have riding it up hill, I can tell that the side knobs won't let it slide, As for braking, I normally front brake so Im fine with the wear and tear on the rear as I don't slide my tires much as not to destroy the trails
