Kenda's Nevegal tires has a bunch of awards for a reason. Plus being designed by DH/XC legend John Tomac, it add to a durable and dependable product. The tire combines a relatively fast-rolling, ramp-fronted, mid-height tread that gives you a great intermediate tire that glues itself to rocks and roots with equal tenacity, and paddles its way through mud and sand. I love the rounded profile that makes it roll into corners quickly and smoothly.

I've been using these tires tubeless on non-tubeless rims,and it's been working great! The sidewalls are tough and hasn't leaked or burped any air. It's the perfect tire to run on lower psi for better traction & cornering.

The Nevegal gets praise from everywhere. It offers great performance in a wide variety of conditions and rolls fairly well for what it is. So I will try to focus on what keeps it from being a better tire.

The treadlife is fair for a tire of this level - it's designed to be soft for grip, not hard for road use. Road use will chew them up in no time although a friend has had them for over 1500 miles with a lot of road mixed in.

The grip is decent on a wide variety of surfaces, but doesn't stand out in the wet in my experience. The rolling resistance is similarly good, without being great.

The achilles heel of these tires seems to be the puncture resistance. I got a ride-ending puncture flat from a small, dull twig on a gravel road of all things. Add to that many thorns that did not ever puncture my Panaracer and you have a tire that does not respond well to sharp objects.

Another issue I have had is quality control. One of my tires delaminated and caused air to leak between the tread and casing, causing a "bubble" that ended a ride. Luckily, Kenda warrantied the tire site unseen with just some pictures of the damage. Another tire similarly delaminated but this tire had been previously punctured so I did not bother trying to get it warrantied. A third tire has had issues seating correctly no matter what I do and loses its air after sitting for 2 days. I should add that I do not run sealant so I depend on the bead seating properly. I have not had an issue in the past with Panaracer or Michelin UST tires but the Nevegals seem hit or miss.

Overall, one of the best tires on the market. Just don't convince yourself they are better in every way than every other tire - they're a great blend of qualities though.

      Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro 26" UST Tire:

      Happy to find this tire. I bought one tire for the rear. This tire is all around great. It rows nicely on flats, grips on cornering, and does not slip on hard packed climbs like other tires in the past. Leaves you smiling when you clear climbs you know you can clear but do not because of spinning out. I ended up ordering 2 more for the rear. Its my rear go to tire!

      Tires have great traction. This is not a fast rolling cross country race tire, but if you enjoy free riding with on hard pack with some soft conditions you will like this tire. This is set two for me and will buy them again if available.

      I use this in So Cal - dry loose terrain. THis tire works great getting traction where there is none. It is predictable - I have bought this tire over and over. It is hard to buy anything else for this price. I use the 2.35 it is heavy but I dont care - my bike is a tank - might as well put some tank tracks on it.

      Ran for 6 months with tubes. Switched over to some Mavic UST rims and they held air without sealant. Rode them for another 3 months with sealant and never had a flat. Just got a new pair. Running 2.35" up front and 2.1" on the back. Not a single flat with or without tubes or sealant. I run 28psi up front and 30psi in the back. No burping issues with Stan's.

      Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro 26" UST Tire:

      This is my seecond set. I like that it is easy to install on my stans rims and I can run very low tire pressure without worrying about flats or the tire coming off the rim. I use it in all kinds of conditions, from commuting to work, sandy hard pack, to lots of rocky rooty trails. The grip is good in these conditions, though I find that the stick-e's are better. Durability wise, I found no problems with lugs breaking off, seams coming apart and such. They last a pretty good amount of time, especially compared to the stick-e versions. The only negative I would say is they're a little heavy. I'm not a racer though so it does'nt bother me much.

      This tire is awesome. Strong wall, lots of grip on rocks and in loose sand/dirt. It rolls slow, but there's no way to get around that if you want a front tire that won't slide out with all the loose gravel and sand around here. I would not run this tire in the back (unless you're in a different area of the country - I have no idea if it performs well in mud or over roots).

        Great tire overall, it was easy to install I didn't even need my tire tools to help it over the rim. It made an excellent seal with Stan's valve stems and before I even added Stan's I pumped it up and was holding 60psi just fine. Seems durable I haven't ripped any chunks off of it or anything. I got the fat 2.35 version and it has excellent traction I have only slipped once and that was in mud. The only cons I have for it are it's mud traction it doesn't disperse mud away very well and how much it weighs.

          I bought these when I had finally decided to go tubeless. The Dual Tread Compound is great for its low rolling resistance but the ability to stick in the corners. You won't be disappointed with the tires. The look good on your bike, the perform excellent, and they come with a great price. I would buy these tires all day.
