Kenda Nevegal Pro DTC 27.5" Tire

The Kenda Nevegal Pro tire is no stranger to praise. For years, the Nevegal Pro has consistently been voted a winner by Mountain Bike Action Magazine and for good reason. Part of the John Tomac Signature Series, this model of the Nevegal Pro features Kenda’s Dual Tread Compound which uses the L3R Pro compound (60 shore A durometer) in the center and the STICK-E compound (50 shore A durometer) for the corning knobs. The L3R Pro compound will improve the center tread life while the STICK-E compound provides plenty of grip and control when corning fast downhill turns. The tread pattern on the Nevegal Pro is perfect for hard-packed, rocky, dry terrain, however, also works well in slightly muddy conditions. The center knobs are ramped to provide traction while maintaining a low rolling resistance and the tall side knobs are designed to penetrate and hold on loose terrain.

  • Wheel Size: 27.5"/ 650B
  • Compound: DTC (Dual Tread Compound) - L3R Pro compound (60a durometer) in center and Stick-E compound (50a durometer) on sides/cornering knobs
  • Bead: Folding
  • Weight: 645±30g (2.10"), 740±35g (2.35")
  • TPI: 120
  • Max PSI: 65 (2.10"), 50 (2.35")
  • Manufacture Part Number(s): 212207, 212208

Please Note: Kenda does not endorse the use of any fluid-based sealant products in any Kenda tube-type or UST tubeless tires. Use of any fluid-based products will void any warranty claims.

Have had this tire on since spring '14 and have no complaints. Only thing I wish is that I could try running tubeless, but since I knew that going in, it's not a knock to the product. I've been riding in Washington and California and have had great luck with durability, tread and traction in wet or dry conditions. This weekend will be the test in rainy conditions. I maybe have 150 miles on them and the tread seems in good condition still.

First of all, I ride pretty hard in rocky, loose over hard desert conditions. First thing I noticed about this tire was that the compounds are pretty soft, which give for a comfortable ride. However, I paid for this with tearing the sidewall pretty easily on a rock. It also lacks sidewall support when cornering. The grip is alright, I thought it'd be better than the HRII I used prior, but going back, it was not. I set up tubeless pretty easily with a compressor, but running anywhere close to 25 psi or below, the tire will burp and you will lose its support. Much higher than 25 psi, you compromise traction. Would only use as a rear tire, which I'm doing now, we'll see how long that lasts...

        Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro 27.5" Tire:

        Great tire. Very good grip in any kind of trail conditions. Climbs will even through muddy trails. Holds well on corners. Just yesterday, I was going downhill through a tight curve, I felt the bike slip a bit, but the side front knobs held me from crashing. Couldn't be happier with it.

          Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro 27.5" Tire:

          Pick up these Nevs because of price and have used them in the past. They are easy to install, roll incredibly good but seems to lose traction when cornering. I did read reviews prior to buying and mention about soft knobs and the cornering issue. Another minus is they aren't tubeless ready. The good thing about Jensonusa is they can be return with their 60 day no hassle return! Sweet!

          Nevegals are a classic design. Unfortunately their tubeless model clocks in at ~925g, nearly 200g more than the standard model. Much to heavy in my opinion. 5 stars if the tubless model was in the 750-800g range but at 925g, 4 stars

              I'm surprised in this day and age that a tire would void it's warranty if ran tubeless. I've run into the issue that many people have with this tire in that the tired started to bubble running it tubeless. I have since changed tires and won't be going back to Kenda.

                Got this for my son to try. He has tore up 2 Maxis tires in the last 5 months (about $70 each). He rides a Santa Cruz Bronson 27.5 in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve area. Trails like 100, 1A, 8, 304. Most are extremely rocky. When we first got the tire the sidewall seemed too thin but it has been fine so far-about 25 miles. Time will tell.
