#KENDA HEROES

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.
