Kenda Nevegal Pro DTC 27.5" Tire

The Kenda Nevegal Pro tire is no stranger to praise. For years, the Nevegal Pro has consistently been voted a winner by Mountain Bike Action Magazine and for good reason. Part of the John Tomac Signature Series, this model of the Nevegal Pro features Kenda’s Dual Tread Compound which uses the L3R Pro compound (60 shore A durometer) in the center and the STICK-E compound (50 shore A durometer) for the corning knobs. The L3R Pro compound will improve the center tread life while the STICK-E compound provides plenty of grip and control when corning fast downhill turns. The tread pattern on the Nevegal Pro is perfect for hard-packed, rocky, dry terrain, however, also works well in slightly muddy conditions. The center knobs are ramped to provide traction while maintaining a low rolling resistance and the tall side knobs are designed to penetrate and hold on loose terrain.

  • Wheel Size: 27.5"/ 650B
  • Compound: DTC (Dual Tread Compound) - L3R Pro compound (60a durometer) in center and Stick-E compound (50a durometer) on sides/cornering knobs
  • Bead: Folding
  • Weight: 645±30g (2.10"), 740±35g (2.35")
  • TPI: 120
  • Max PSI: 65 (2.10"), 50 (2.35")
  • Manufacture Part Number(s): 212207, 212208

Please Note: Kenda does not endorse the use of any fluid-based sealant products in any Kenda tube-type or UST tubeless tires. Use of any fluid-based products will void any warranty claims.

Great tires and work very well in the Hudson Valley (NY). They take a beating and provide great traction in various terrains (rocks, trunks, hard pack, soft pack, clay) and conditions (wet, dry, muddy, frozen). I do best with them slightly under recommended pressures, but that does exacerbate the main drawback of this tire - high rolling resistance. You will notice this tire requires more effort than others and lowering the psi makes it worse. I gladly pay that price for the added confidence it gives me. When dialed in, you feel glued to the ground. More than half my group has switched to these based on their performance. That says a lot considering I'm a middle-of-the-pack rider.

First of all, I ride pretty hard in rocky, loose over hard desert conditions. First thing I noticed about this tire was that the compounds are pretty soft, which give for a comfortable ride. However, I paid for this with tearing the sidewall pretty easily on a rock. It also lacks sidewall support when cornering. The grip is alright, I thought it'd be better than the HRII I used prior, but going back, it was not. I set up tubeless pretty easily with a compressor, but running anywhere close to 25 psi or below, the tire will burp and you will lose its support. Much higher than 25 psi, you compromise traction. Would only use as a rear tire, which I'm doing now, we'll see how long that lasts...

Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro DTC 27.5" Tire:

Have had this tire on since spring '14 and have no complaints. Only thing I wish is that I could try running tubeless, but since I knew that going in, it's not a knock to the product. I've been riding in Washington and California and have had great luck with durability, tread and traction in wet or dry conditions. This weekend will be the test in rainy conditions. I maybe have 150 miles on them and the tread seems in good condition still.

    Comments about Kenda Nevegal Pro DTC 27.5" Tire:

    I'm surprised in this day and age that a tire would void it's warranty if ran tubeless. I've run into the issue that many people have with this tire in that the tired started to bubble running it tubeless. I have since changed tires and won't be going back to Kenda.

      Got this for my son to try. He has tore up 2 Maxis tires in the last 5 months (about $70 each). He rides a Santa Cruz Bronson 27.5 in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve area. Trails like 100, 1A, 8, 304. Most are extremely rocky. When we first got the tire the sidewall seemed too thin but it has been fine so far-about 25 miles. Time will tell.

                This is a great tire and the 27.5 X 2.1 was key for my 650b conversion rear tire. It handles great and feels beefier than a 2.1 tire. Plus it is a great value.

                  Great tire for the roots/rocks/mud/wet of NH. These were a huge improvement over the Shwalbe Racing Ralphs (the ralphs may be a great tire, but not up here in NH where traction is key). A very good all around tire. Running these tubeless on ZTR Crest rims with no issues. Finding that these perform best up here in NH at ~26psi. Lower than that they get a little squirrely (especially at higher speeds), higher than that too rigid. Overall, great tire and will buy again.
