K-Shield awarded for best puncture protection

June 02, 2016 / Bicycle News

The renownend German specialist magazine "AktivRadfahren" tested 8 tires for everyday use in their May issue 05/2016. The result: Our classic trekking tire Kenda Khan offered the best puncture protection in the test.

In order to determine safety characteristics, the magazine tested eight tires for cutting and puncture. The Kenda Khan was able to shine with the best values in both categories, and also performed solidly regarding rolling resistance.

Thanks to K-Shield technology, a layer of aramid and ceramic particles under the tread area protects the tire from punctures and increases tire life. One of our tires using this technology is the Kenda Khan, a proven classic with many product variants. The tire's favorable price and outstanding protective characteristics convinced testers. For everyone looking for a safe tire, the Khan is your first choice.
