Racing brings not only riders, but also material close to the limits of what is possible. Kenda actively supports various international teams and athletes, all of them as passionate about riding as we are, be it on the trails or on the road. Why? Because we learn from them. We learn how to steadily improve our products and make tires that not only exceed the expectations of elite riders, but of everybody who loves to ride. Because we want you to have a tire that gives you reassurance no matter which conditions you find yourself in.

Double trouble! Meet Daniel and Elias Ruso.

We first met Daniel at a contest, and before we knew it, he was pulling off tricks where no one else would. We quickly found ourselves wondering, who IS this guy? Turns out he has a brother, Elias, who shares the same enthusiasm and positive attitude, combined with a bit of craziness, and a love for bringing both wheels off the ground. Sounds like a winning combination to us! Follow them on Instagram: @danielruso and @eliasruso


Lucas "Huppi" Huppert is Swiss slopestyle rider and one of the biggest young talents in the sport. Competing in 4Cross and BMX as a kid, he regularly places inside the Top 10 on FMB World Tour events. Follow Lucas on Instagram.



Robin Goomes

Hailing from New Zealand, Robin first caught everyone’s attention in 2021, when she was the first woman to backflip at a Crankworx competition. The following year, she opened up and landed the longest dirt-to-dirt jump ever ridden by a female MTBer (nearly 30 meters!) at Dark Fest. We can't wai to see what other “firsts” Robin can unlock. Follow Robin on Instagram.


At 25 years old, Harriet Burbidge-Smith, or Haz, has 18 years of race experience under her belt, and two BMX World Championship titles to her name, as well as eight Australian National titles. Oof! In 2018, she switched to a downhill bike, and hasn't looked back since. If you flick through her channels, you'll know why. Follow Haz on Instagram.
