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. This version of the Slant Six embodies Kenda’s Stick- E compound. Kenda’s Stick- E compound is a slow rebound rubber (50 shore A durometer) for excellent grip and traction control; the trade off is that the tire will wear faster.
I bought these to replace my nevegals that were way too ins tense for my riding. I ride in southern California where the conditions are mostly hard pack and a little bit of sand. Not to state the obvious but they are way faster than the nevegals. I have had minimal back tire slipping in turns. I use them on both front and back an have yet to have a catastrophic fall with them so I am happy. They are very thin so be careful where you ride. I have had numerous thorns puncture these tires. All of this review is really spotty and Ill formed so I will cut to the point. The tires are fast, and for that reason alone I would buy them again.
I have used this tire for almost 1500 miles and the rear tire gave up and the front is not so good. I ride in the Texas Hill country area where there are plenty of rocks and hard pack. Since here is not full of mountains I managed to have great rides because the uphills where almost nonexistent giving a good grip most of the time. I can't complain for low life of these because they never lose their grip.
