Kenda Small Block 8 Pro 29" SCT Tire

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 now embodies SCT technology, which means it is compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion system!

  • Intended Use: Mountain
  • Bead: Folding Bead

possibly the lightest tire around...
as the title says, "possibly" the lightest tire around. There may be a lighter one out there but I haven't found it. I usually take my bike out year round a couple time a week for 1 to 2 hours each time. So far I'm still on my first set so they has a decent amount of life in them! I ride 45% hard pack, 45% loose rocks and 10% other. these things seem to perform perfectly for what I use them on. I hear people complaining about mud but I haven't tried. Terrible in sand but what tires aren't? They seem to do just fine with thorns, the occasional one gets through, im using tubs with Stan's liquid latex and everything works out fine.

PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight

BEST USES: XC, Racing, Mountain Biking

Great for front range foothills.
I bought these to replace the schwalbe nobby nic that came on my giant. Imo, They are much better for the riding on hard pack dirt and granite and sandstone in the foothills around boulder and Lyons. Good bite over rocks, roots, and in the corners. It's only been a few rides, so I can't speak to the durability on those surfaces.

Great summer tire
Great tire for mid-late summer and fall riding when trails are dry/dusty to medium loose. Good rock and root grip with the micro knobs. Sidewalls already have light wear after 50 miles of riding.

PROS: Amazing Dry Pack Grip, Easy Tubeless Setup, Decent Wet Grip, Easy To Install

CONS: Sidewall Durability

BEST USES: Racing, Mountain Biking

Great in the dry
I've used a few other rear tires on trails here in Phoenix, like the Maxxis Ikon and Vittoria AKA, but the Small Block 8 is still my favorite for wear and grip, and the $30 price can't be beat when discounted. I did need a compressor to mount it on my Roval carbon wheels, unlike my front Maxxis Ardent, but once mounted they've held air as well as any other.

Excellent.
These tires came stock on my Haro 29 Comp Hardtail, and they are fantastic. They roll fast, and smooth, they ride very nice on road, and have the grit to hold up through the roughest terrain. I've ridden through rocks, mud, and sand, time and time again. Nothing stops these tires, they are excellent.

Highly recomend these tires.

PROS: Excellent Grip, Easy To Install, Traction, Responsive, Good Through Mud, Durable, Attractive Design, Cornering

CONS: Water Isn't The Best, Can Slip On Water

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking, Racing

This Small Block 8 Pro is marked as SCT which I presume is Single Compound Tire. Which compound is the tire made of? The hard compound or softer/stickier compound?
Eric on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: KENDA SCT (KSCT)
KENDA SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tire technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.The tread compound is a dual tread compound. Hard in the center, soft on the sides. Lovin' them on my xc hardtail.
