The Kenda Nevegal is the ultimate tire for varied terrain. The Nevegal handles loose or hard packed dirt easily. The tire has consistently been voted a winner by Mountain Bike Action Magazine. The Nevegal’s ramped front knobs increase speed while retaining grip for climbs. The Dual Tread Compound (DTC) is the ultimate tread compound. In the center is Kenda’s L3R PRO compound, which is fast rolling, while the cornering knobs have STICK-E compound which gives you cornering control.

This version of the Nevegal has the SCT modification, which makes them compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.

  • Wheel Size: 26”
  • Intended Use: Mountain Biking over varied terrain
  • Bead: Folding Bead
  • Weight: 635 +/- 32 grams (26x2.1” claimed weight)

    This is a great tire, and at 2.35 makes for a cushy ride over rocky terrain. I've run them in the front and rear for about 6-8 years. My only gripe, if you could call it that, is that the transitional ramp blocks are entirely the wrong idea for the rear in tight, steep climbing in rocky muddy conditions, out here in the PNW. I always reverse the tread on the rear to accommodate for this shortcoming. Works perfectly on the rear, in this orientation. DTC does keep wear down a bit. But these tires are soft, and as such, I usually replace them twice a year for optimal performance. Or, if I'm feeling tight on funds, I rotate the front to the rear.

    These tires are just what I was looking for... higher volume to run with lower pressures on a tubeless setup. They look great, but... both tires have a section of about 10 inches that have significant runout in the tread. The casings and beads look fine and the beads seat properly, but it is like having a wheel that is out of true that you can't fix.

    No, it is not an issue of the bead not being properly seated as I have read in a couple of these review followups. I marked the bad areas and the rotated the tire on the rims and the same bad spots are there. I even mounted the tires to different rims with tubes and the exact same defects appear in the exact same locations.

    One tire is worse than the other... I am trying to decide whether to hassle with returning them or perhaps put the worst one on the back so I won't have too bad a wobble visible on the front when I ride.

    Overall I am disappointed with this purchase.

        I installed this tire on my 26" UST hardtail using tire sealant. I've attempted to destroy the tire over nasty terrain/speed southern TX has to offer, to no success. The grip is unsurpassed on dry surfaces and don't recall ever loosing control as a result of tire slippage.

          Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro 26" SCT Tire:

          Purchased product in April 2014 to set up tubeless on my Santa Cruz Heckler. Install was not too difficult but it took several sealant and air combos to get it just right. Tires worked well for 2 months of 3 days a week all mountain aggressive riding, but after that things got bad.

          The rear tire developed a small sidewall tare that could not be remedied and furthermore both tires began to warp severely. After replacing the rear tire the other tire deteriorated as well. Overall the tires rode well for two months with great grip and no flats, but the break-in period was a let down and the failure of both tires after 3 months will encourage me to never purchase these tires again.

            The Nevegal tread does not need any more praise, its proven. The sct design does, it works! I mounted these to a pair of DT swiss UST rims, added Stans sealant and inflated with a air compressor. All has been well.

            I bought the 2.35 to cushen my hardtail ride and so i could run less pressure. It wears pretty good, no knobs have ripped off yet. Good cornering/breaking.

                    I've already noticed improved handling over the Mavic High Roller I had on the rear before this one. It's definitely a good bit heavier but it also has beefier sidewalls which is where the Mavic was leaking. It was easy to install tubeless on standard rims with Stan's kit.

                    Best tires I've run so far. Used for everything and they are great. I've used maxxis minions, michelins, stouts, kenda kinnetics and Nevegals trump them all. I ride these tires everywhere doing everything with confidence.
                    buy them you will not regret it.
