Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire

Item #: TI261A02
Availability Please make a selection
Quantity   Out of stock.

For years, Kenda’s most popular tires have been the Small Block 8 and Nevegal. Finally, they have created a tire that embodies the spirit of both the Nevegal and the Small Block. Excellent for intermediate to hard- packed terrain, you’ll speed through the course, without worrying about slipping. Kenda's dual tread compound is the ultimate tread compound. With a harder compound in the center (L3R PRO compound) and Kenda's Stick-E compound on the cornering knobs, you'll have the best of both worlds, speed and grip!

  • Bead: Folding
  • Application: Front or Rear Tires
  • DTC: Dual Tread Compound for maximum grip and longevity

Great XC tire

Run them front and rear mounted tubeless with stans and they work great. Decent or good in a wide variety of conditions, like the small block eight but better.

26x2.35 used as front tire on Trek Fuel. A very good tire for most uses. Low rolling resistance and sticks to the trail pretty good but not predictable during higher speed maneuvers through stretches of loose dirt or gravel. Sheds mud well and okay straight through sand. I couldn't tell by the picture and thought that the tread pattern was more aggressive. These are somewhat small knobs. It would be a great tire for part road, part rail-trail-cinder, part fireroad and part level singletrack where the turns are slower. It's a folding tire, so takes some finesse to get it on the rim---something I wouldn't like to do on the trail with biting insects.

Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

I bought these tires for my trail bike. They are decently lightweight, look good, and have a nice treadblock pattern. However, they should not be used in muddy or wet conditions. These will be most at home on dry trails that aren't too loose.

    Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

    I had one of these tires on the rear of my SC Nomad. At the time, I was doing some casual riding around the city on pavement. It was awesome for that. I then moved to Phoenix and started riding in the mountains. Not so good for that. This tire is not designed for loose dirt/gravel/sand, so it's not a knock on the tire. Side walls seem weak for a DTC tire, which is why I'm giving it 4 stars.

        Bought these tires for front and rear and was amazed at how easy they mounted and sealed tubless with very little sealant. They ride is a little different with how round the shape is but very fast and positive in the corners. Should be a great tire for the so cal summers on hardpack terrain.

          Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

          This is a great tire when used on hardpack and dry conditions. On the contrary, when things get wet, this tire loses a lot of grip. It doesn't shed mud very well. But for the right conditions, this is a great tire.

            Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

            THIS TIRE IS A CROSS BETWEEN 2 OF THE BEST OUT THERE. THE NEVGAL, AND THE SMALL BLOCK EIGHT. YOU GET THE BEST OF EACH. FAST DUE TO LOW ROLLING RESISTANCE OF SML. BLK. 8, AND GREAT SIDE BITE OF THE NEVGAL. I LOVE THIS TIRE! I RACE THE KENDA CUP SERIES, AMONG OTHERS, AND THINK THIS IS A GREAT XC TIRE.

            Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

            My riding style is hard into corners and a lot of front brake. Comes from riding dirt bikes. That being said, I'm too hard on front brakes for this as a front tire. I do really like it as a rear tire. Good cornering and straightline traction with something given up in the braking performance. It might make a great XC racing front tire for someone with more "finesse" riding skills than me.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Kenda Slant Six DTC Folding Tire:

              I use these tires for trail riding on gravel Fireroads,Hardpack to Muddy and Rocky Singletrack. The results are exactly what Kenda advertises. Great for hardpack, Great for light mud and not so great for heavy mud. I moved to Slant Six from Small Block Eight. Slant Six has better climbing traction on gravel and hardpack, better cornering traction in hard pack (no washouts so far),better traction through mud, and releases mud better. On top of that, I've noticed very little difference in rolling resistance which was the best thing about the Small Block Eights. I'm completely satisfied with the product especially for the price. When these wear out, I will buy them again.
