The Honey Badger XC is the lighter, faster version of the original. Designed for those who would rather wear spandex than baggies. The Tri-bite knobs have been resized and moved to maximize efficiency for those who love to climb, descend, and race through tight single track on a variety of terrain. The tire spacing of the knobs allow each knob to truly work for you while clearing mud and debris, while providing superior grip compared to the competitors.
The original dual tread rubber compound for Kenda. A hard long lasting and fast rolling rubber (60sA) comprises the center of the tread area, while a softer-tackier should rubber (50sA) completes this binary compound for the versatility of speed and grip off road. Found typically on cross country, all-mountain and cyclocross tires.
TUBELESS AND TOUGH
Kenda Sidewall Casing Technology (SCT) is the modification of existing Kenda tire construction methods. By adding an additional sheet of Nylon fabric across the sidewall of the tire, from bead up to tread block, it results in the optimization of the tire construction for fluid based tubeless conversion systems.
Additionally, the SCT construction increases the structural strength of sidewalls; bolstering resistance to slices and abrasions, helping reduce the chance of catastrophic damage that fluid sealants cannot seal.
