Based upon the highly successful Nevegal tire, the Small Block 8 features 8 miniature Nevegal shaped knobs running from left to right across the tire. Its well suited for fast accelerating, hard packed cross country riding.
This version of the Small Block 8 uses Kenda’s signature DTC compound. DTC is the ultimate tread compound. Kenda’s L3R compound (60 shore A durometer) is in the center and the cornering knobs have Kenda’s signature STICK-E compound (50 shore A durometer). The benefits are great center tread life, and excellent cornering. You get the best of both worlds with DTC!
The Small Block 8 DTC CAP has an added layer of material that is under the tread area and runs from bead to bead. This is referred to as CAP protection. It is Kenda’s Premium Downhill puncture resistant material designed to prevent pinch flats.

They don't love loam/loose soil. They don't want to grab on that. They don't love to grab slick surfaces like rock.
They do grab hard on fast, packed soil. Good feel - very stiff (like to be pounded). I find these to be confidence inspiring.

-1 for wore out quickly on asphalt (its for hardpack not street use), doesn't like to side climb uneven pavement/asphalt transitions, kinda tralines a bit.
