  • R3C (R3C)

    R3C is Kenda´s fastest rubber compound and used exclusively for high end racing tires. With significantly lower rolling resistance and increased wet weather traction, the R3C compound is truly the successor to the R2C rubber. Destined for race day, this isn’t your daily commuter compound.
  • K-Armor (KA)

    THE ALL NEW LEVEL OF PROTECTION K-Armor is a proprietary casing material technology developed by Kenda for superior puncture protection and rolling resistance. The super light-weight material features a tighter weave than traditional fabric puncture breakers while being lighter overall. Additionally, in production, the manufacturing characteristics are superior to those of existing materials resulting in structurally stronger tires. The K-Armor fabric also contributes to the incredibly low rolling resistance values found on the road tire that it was introduced on, the Valkyrie Pro, as well as other tires using this material.
  • Kenda GCT (GCT)

  • Reflective Hot Patch (RHP)

  • Iron Cap Belt (ICAPB)

    URBAN DEFENSE WHERE IT'S NEEDED MOST Utilizing the same protective material that is in the full Iron Cap protection, found in Endurance 3 tires, but limited to just under the tread surface, offering added puncture protection at minimal cost and weight addition.
