Awesome tires but

Really good traction but if you order more then one it will come in the same box. But you'll get charged oversized shipping for each tire, not fair.

Got the 2.5 wire bead and it was flattened when i got it. The tire was extremely stiff and nearly impossible to install, requiring ninja skills. When i finally mounted it was shocked to see how small of tire it was. I have 2.4 tires that are much bigger. Small air volume for a heavy stiff tire.

Comments about Kenda Excavator Pro 26" Stick-E DH Tire:

I used for the front wheel in my Trek down hiller.
It is a great tire in the trails not recommended for roads.
I am glad it was shipped using the Free promo, Thank you.
It may look crooked when you receive it but after you install it molds perfect to the wheel rim. I used a wider rim even to gain more of this Excavator's grip. Go and dig out with this amazing tire.

Comments about Kenda Excavator Pro 26" Stick-E DH Tire:

These tires gave me a step ahead of the game when I took them on my local trails and made my first few turns. The soft, sticky side knobs grab every morsel of dirt to allow you to rail those turns and get horizontal. I have never felt my rims flex through berms they way they do now with these tires. I won a chainless DH race on them thanks to the superior cornering, as i was able to trust them more than any other. My only gripe was getting them on the rim. The steel bead was tough to set. Pumped the tire up to 80PSI to get it to set. Once, they're on, they're on! No flats as of 100+ days, including Whistler, Mammoth, Northstar, Jackson Hole, and various local trails.

Comments about Kenda Excavator Pro 26" Stick-E DH Tire:

The Kenda Excavator does exactly what it says, grips and rips. The wire bead makes it a little more difficult to install, but not terrible. The tire is on the heavy side and really only works how it was designed when going downhill. Can be used as a all around tire, but the weight and lug pattern is definitely a gravity tire. Overall this is a great tire for the price and certainly an upgrade for most.

              Not the best tire for pedaling, but I keep a pair of these for the few days I hit the lifts. Good traction in the roots and chunky stuff. Not the best for wet/mud conditions. Have held up quite well.
