The Kenda Nevegal is the ultimate tire for varied terrain. The Nevegal handles loose or hard packed dirt easily. The tire has consistently been voted a winner by Mountain Bike Action Magazine. The Nevegal’s ramped front knobs increase speed while retaining grip for climbs. The Dual Tread Compound (DTC) is the ultimate tread compound. In the center is Kenda’s L3R PRO compound, which is fast rolling, while the cornering knobs have STICK-E compound which gives you cornering control.

This version of the Nevegal has the SCT modification, which makes them compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.

  • Wheel Size: 26”
  • Intended Use: Mountain Biking over varied terrain
  • Bead: Folding Bead
  • Weight: 635 +/- 32 grams (26x2.1” claimed weight)

      This is a great tire, and at 2.35 makes for a cushy ride over rocky terrain. I've run them in the front and rear for about 6-8 years. My only gripe, if you could call it that, is that the transitional ramp blocks are entirely the wrong idea for the rear in tight, steep climbing in rocky muddy conditions, out here in the PNW. I always reverse the tread on the rear to accommodate for this shortcoming. Works perfectly on the rear, in this orientation. DTC does keep wear down a bit. But these tires are soft, and as such, I usually replace them twice a year for optimal performance. Or, if I'm feeling tight on funds, I rotate the front to the rear.

      Purchased product in April 2014 to set up tubeless on my Santa Cruz Heckler. Install was not too difficult but it took several sealant and air combos to get it just right. Tires worked well for 2 months of 3 days a week all mountain aggressive riding, but after that things got bad.

      The rear tire developed a small sidewall tare that could not be remedied and furthermore both tires began to warp severely. After replacing the rear tire the other tire deteriorated as well. Overall the tires rode well for two months with great grip and no flats, but the break-in period was a let down and the failure of both tires after 3 months will encourage me to never purchase these tires again.

          The Nevegal tread does not need any more praise, its proven. The sct design does, it works! I mounted these to a pair of DT swiss UST rims, added Stans sealant and inflated with a air compressor. All has been well.

          I bought the 2.35 to cushen my hardtail ride and so i could run less pressure. It wears pretty good, no knobs have ripped off yet. Good cornering/breaking.

                  I've already noticed improved handling over the Mavic High Roller I had on the rear before this one. It's definitely a good bit heavier but it also has beefier sidewalls which is where the Mavic was leaking. It was easy to install tubeless on standard rims with Stan's kit.

                  Best tires I've run so far. Used for everything and they are great. I've used maxxis minions, michelins, stouts, kenda kinnetics and Nevegals trump them all. I ride these tires everywhere doing everything with confidence.
                  buy them you will not regret it.

                      Set these up on Mavic 317 rims with tape and tubeless valve stems. Popped right up with a blast from the compressor, and didn't require sealant to seal up the tire. Was still losing some air around the bead and valve stem, so running sealant to tighten up those leaks- everything seems to be working great at 38psi (I'm a big guy) any lower and the rear tends to burp on square-edge bumps.

                      2.35" size added volume over the 2.1" nevegals that came on the bike, improved ride and traction. Great upgrade!

                      I love the way these tire ride, when I saw they are finally making a sealant compatible model I was excited. BUT this tires weights are FALSE ADVERTISING. Jenson and Kenda both describe this tires 2.1 version as 635 Grams +- 32. When the tire arrives up it says right on the package that the weight is 753 +-38. WHAT THE HECK?!?! Already that's 1/4lbs. more than advertised. Then I actually weight the tire because I don't trust them anymore and the 2.1 DCT SCT weights in at 802 grams on a calibrated scale!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT A UST TIRE! WHY IS IT SOOOO HEAVY, WHAT GIVES?!?!?? THATS a 1/3lbs. over weight on a 2.1. Oddly enough I ordered a 2.3 at the same time and it was 825 grams like the package said it would be. The 2.3 is advertised at 836 grams but the actual packaging says 827 grams. How does a 2.1 of the same design weight very nearly the same weight as a 2.3?!?!?!?
