What is EMC?
EMC (E-Mountain Casing) by Kenda is the first tire casing construction on the market developed to meet the specific requirements of e-mountainbikes.
Thanks to a reinforced ply of woven fabric and an additional layer of puncture protection under the tread area, every tire with EMC casing is not only more durable and provides more control and safety than any other MTB tire – it is also lightweight.
All Kenda EMC tires are tubeless ready and ECE R75 certified and therefore officially approved for fast e-mountainbikes (45 km/h).
What is the main benefit?
Due to the increased weight of e-mountainbikes and the high torques of their engines, tires are put under increased stress outside the norm. The stiffer and more durable EMC casing provides more control, better handling characteristics, and better puncture protection than a standard MTB tire.
EMC is available for Havok, Nevegal X and Honey Badger DH.
Over a decade after its original release, the Nevegal gets a complete makeover that leaves no aspect of the tire unchanged. The tread pattern was updated for less rolling resistance and now comes with a dual compound. The EMC casing benefits from the latest of material technology.
The Kenda Regolith Pro is an all-new, all-round mountain bike tire developed to set the benchmark in offroad versatility. Light weight, it rolls fast while providing excellent cornering and braking traction on wet.
An all condition tire the Hellkat is ideal for gravity orientated riders looking for a tire with outstanding grip and puncture protection that will keep you up and going even when things get rough. Developed in cooperation with the Polygon-UR Team, the Hellkat is truly a World Cup caliber tire.
Honey Badger DH Pro is a well-known and many times awarded Enduro and Downhill tire. The tri-bite knobs running down the center ensure fast rolling speed and siped to open up under heavy braking loads. Aggressive side knobs claw into the ground and provide endless grip! By adding an EMC version to the Honey Badger line up, gravity orientated e-mountainbike riders can now rely on the great original qualities of this tire combined with the additional benefits of EMC.
27.5+ tires is one of the most popular sizes used for e-mountain bikes. The Havok's larger air volume increases the contact patch and leads to a better traction, more control and a higher riding comfort. The low profile center blocks roll quickly across the trail while the siped transition knobs and shoulder blocks give great grip on almost every trail condition.
