          Perfect for the "grass crit' style cross races in my area. Good grip on the loose stuff and low rolling resistance on hard pack.

          Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

          I rode a set of these for over 1200 miles about 60/40 Road vs Gravel before the rear tire was too thread bare in my view to trust on longer rides. I thought they held up very well. Roll great on pavement and on gravel Thorns will puncture, especially the side wall. Not worse than other similar tires. I used a liner but that made them a little heavier than I wanted. Overall a very good tire.

            Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

            I don't often write reviews but I felt like I had to on these tires. I've only had them on the bike for a week around 50 miles of use but their fantastic! I'm a road guy that purchased a cyclocross bike looking for something different after many,many miles on the road. I went with the 40's for the added stability. I ride on gravel roads, pavement, hard packed dirt & grass and so far these tires handle it all with ease.I highly recommend them!

                I ride my cyclocross bike manly on hard packed gravel. I wanted something fast yet sturdy enough to do the dob. This does the job just great. Nice profile and well designed too.

                  Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

                  Upgraded from some default knobs that came on my wheelset. I ride on cobbled/paver sidewalks in the Middle East, so the knobs were tossing me side to side in the grooves, a very unsettling feeling. Since I had great success with Small Block 8's on the MTB I tried these. They worked great, and oddly enough, even handle the soft sand I occasionally hit better than the knobbys. They are also much quieter and smooth rolling. I love these tires and highly recommend them for Hardpack, Cobbles, Road and Dirt/Sand.

                    Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

                    I bought a pair of these (35mm) for use at Monstercross in VA. The course was about 80% dusty double track with some mud pits and rocks mixed in, and a couple miles of pavement. These were perfect. They roll fast on the smooth stuff but didn't get bogged down in the mud, despite not being a mud tire. Also never flatted once, despite some nasty rocks. 40mm would have absorbed bumps better but didn't think it would fit my bike. Only thing that gave me any trouble was a small section of downhill pea gravel. Would highly recommend for anyone doing gravel racing or ultra-cross events.

                      Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

                      My son and I do 30 mile runs on rail trails. Some sections are loose gravel and some sections have large rocks sticking out of packed sand. The OEM tires on myTrek had 30 TPI cheap tires that handled well but rode so harsh. The Happy Mediums have 120 TPI which give a far nicer ride and handled just as good as the OEM tires.
                      I installed two sets of the Happy Mediums with Mr Tuffy liners. They are so easy to install and I weighed the wheels on a kitchen scale before and after. The Happy Mediums with liners installed were 100 grams lighter than the OEM.
                      My son's Rocky Mountain OEM were Kanda 60 TPI smooth centre and he got improved handling and ride. We both really like our Happy Mediums a lot and were able to keep our speed up in the rough sections enough to cut 10 minutes off our normal time for our favourite 30 mile loop. Would definitely buy again.

                      • Training Tire At Hi Psi

                      Comments about Kenda Happy Medium Cyclocross Tire:

                      I have been looking to replace my Hutchison Bulldogs with a new tubeless compatible cx tire. I would not recommend these (SCT) tires if you are going to run them at low pressure (<40psi). Too much rolling resistance. I like the tread, but the casing is so stiff it's like riding a touring tire. I had them mounted on Stans Alpha 340s with one layer of yellow tape.
                      Outside of that they function as they should, but I was expecting a little more from Kenda.
                      I was disappointed.
                      On the plus side, I was not able to burp them off the rim.
