Kenda Small Block Eight 27.5 Tire

Kenda Small Block Eight 27.5 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!

Features

  • Dual Tread Compound offers cornering grip with faster center line acceleration
  • 8 smaller Nevegal knobs across the tire for grip on hardpack conditions
  • One of the fastest rolling tires in the Kenda Premium line
  • Kenda endorses the use of fluid based sealants only is specifically designated Kenda sealant compatible tire
  • Tubeless compatible and has KSCT protection

Much heavier than Jenson says
I haven't ridden this tire yet, but wanted to point out the weight is listed wrong - it's not 450g, more like 680g.

Gravel bike tires
I have rode these tires for a couple of years, just put a pair of 27.5 on my gravel bike, they have a surprisingly quick feel, I mostly like the way they predicltably transition over in high speed gravel turns. They are tubeless compatible and one of the few low knob tires in this size.

Decent dry hard pack tires
I've used these tires on a couple of rides now. Mostly technical cross country style riding. They excel on gravel, hard rock, pavement, pretty much anything other than mud or extremely loose dirt/sand. I would recommend it as a rear tire with possibly a nevegal from Kenda upfront. Currently though I'm running them front and rear and just watching the conditions I ride them in and switching tires as needed.
