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.

Good quality tire for the money but don't expect them to be fast. These are not a cross country design. The rolling resistance is insane. They will make you work and slow you down. Uae for downhill riding and you won't be disappointed. If you use them for XC, they'll stop you dead in your tracks after 35 feet if coasting on flat terrain.

    Bought two of these, both were seriously deformed and impossible to install to rims. MIght have been defective and just my bad luck, but it wasn't worth the return, so I threw 'em in the dumpster.

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

    Tires were extremely inexpensive. Possible reason was they were deformed to a point where I pinched the tubes 3 to 4 times prior to successfully mounting.

      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 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 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.
