Kenda Small Block 8 Pro 26" 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!

Not Very Impressed
Been a Larsen TT user forever and thought Kenda Small Blocks would be a great change. The Side Wall has missing rubber and I am not sure of there reliablility. I have called and sent emails to kenda and jensen with no return or answer.

Excellent Tire
This tire is one of the best hard pack / dry condition tires... and possibly THE very best considering how inexpensive it is (relative to competitors tires). They will not shed mud very well and they will slip on wet roots and wet leaves. But in the summer time, they cant be beat for the price.

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Lightweight

BEST USES: Racing, Mountain Biking

Awesome all around tire
I use these for XC and trail use, and they get the job done. However, while cornering or going up hill on loose surfaces (gravel, sand, loose dirt, ect.) they tend to break loose. On harder surfaces they do great. I plan on upgrading to a more mountain specific tire but only because that's what I plan on using my bike for. For now, the SB8's do their job great.

PROS: Great In Dirt, Low Rolling Resistance, Great On Hardpack Surface

CONS: Not Good On Loose Surface

Works as Advertised!
Hardtail 1x10. 190 lb rider.

Sealant Compatible (tubeless with Stan's or Orange Seal) is worth the weight to me. They mounted easily and don't lose air. I typically run 20-24psi up front and 25-30psi in the back on Arch rims. Never had a burp.

I have lost the front tire a few times while cornering in dry stuff. An X-King is going on the front in the spring.

The lack of rolling resistance is incredible coming off of Nevegals for 8 years.

DTC is no joke. I have several hundred road and trail miles and they look awesome.

These things are scary in most wet (offroad) conditions. Our trails aren't open when it's wet, so it's not an issue for me.

PROS: Easy To Install, Durable, Low Rolling Resistance, Lightweight

CONS: Cornering Grip, Corners Poorly, Turning Grip

BEST USES: Rear Tire, Racing

Rolls like a slick, hooks like a DH
This tire would be perfect if they made it with a slightly heavier casing. Sharp rocks are no good and eventually I pinch them at the bead and have to toss them out. I run them for enduro on a Jekyll.

PROS: Fast Roll, Lightweight

CONS: Could Use Heavier Casing

Great tire
Great value in a tire. I have one on the rear paired with a Slant6 in the front. Very low rolling resistance and great bite when digging into hardpack. They work great on 90% of the terrain I ride 90% of the time.

PROS: Attractive Design, Easy To Install

CONS: NONE

Good for the rear
I use the Nev. sticky up front and SB8 2.1 on the rear for a good rolling good traction combo. Mostly SOCAL rocks and loose over hard pack.
finally, it has a tubeless bead at 600G.
