What are the differences in Kenda’s rubber compounds? Kenda manufactures bicycle tires in eight different rubber compounds, each with its own degree of hardness, referred to as durometer and measured on the shore A (sA) scale.

DUAL TREAD COMPOUND Dual Tread Compound (DTC) is a combination of two different rubber compounds: L3R Pro and Stick-E rubber. The L3R Pro compound has a durometer of 60sA and is used in the center of the tread surface and part way into the transition knobs. A harder compound in the center will allow a faster roll with increased durability. The shoulder knobs are made out of the Stick-E rubber compound, which has a durometer of 50sA. This softer compound has slow rebounding characteristics which allow the tire to conform and flex with the ground giving maximum traction. DTC rubber is most commonly found on cross country mountain bike, cyclocross, and performance BMX tires due to its rolling speed and grip.

R2C COMPOUND Road 2 Compound (R2C) is Kenda’s latest performance compound for road cycling. Like the DTC compound, R2C is comprised of rubber with two different shore A measurements. The center compound is a 70sA giving the compound the fastest rolling speed of any Kenda tire, while the shoulders utilize the L3R Pro compound with a 60sA. This compound was designed with the performance rider and racer in mind based on the feedback from international professional cyclists.

NATURAL RUBBER COMPOUND Natural Rubber Compound (NRC) is a low rolling resistance blend of natural and synthetic rubber compounds that allow Kenda tubulars to provide a smooth, quick, and agile handling. NRC is slightly softer than the R2C, with a 65sA and further improves the quality of Kenda tubular tires.

RACE STICK-E RUBBER Race Stick-E Rubber is a tire designed for race conditions with a compound that takes grip to a whole new level. With a 42sA, the RSR compound is super soft and sticky for a variety of surface types and conditions. The soft compound provides not only superior grip, but also works as a small degree of independent suspension as each tire knob flex and reform on the trail surface. Designed to further complement Kenda’s rubber compounds for downhill and slalom tires, RSR is perfect for European World Cup conditions as well as the local gravity park.

Stick-E is Kenda’s original all mountain and downhill rubber compound. The 50sA rubber still provides sure grip for a wide range of trails and conditions while lasting longer than softer compounds. In addition to being used as the shoulder compound on DTC tires, Kenda also offers tires in complete Stick-E compound for the all mountain rider who wants a balanced tire life with a sure grip.

TECH

STICK-E COMPOUND

L3R PRO L3R Pro is the performance work horse of Kenda’s rubber compounds. L3R Pro is found on anything from road racing to mountain bike tires. At 60sA, the L3R Pro compound is a fast and solid performer, while holding the title of Kenda’s lightest weight rubber compound.

HARD RUBBER COMPOUND Hard Rubber Compound (HRC) Designed as a complement to the endurance training tires, the Hard Rubber Compound is a quick rolling long wearing rubber compound that still gives a comfortable ride without feeling too hard. The HRC is a 70sA compound for maximum tread life and speed.

STANDARD RUBBER COMPOUND Found mainly on Kenda’s K-Generation tires, SRC combines the best attributes of low rolling resistance, extreme durability and tread longevity into one universal package that benefits riders of all disciplines.

NEW! SEALANT COMPATIBLE TIRE SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tire technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems. No longer are riders bound to weakness of a tube that can be punctured nor do they need to worry about a tubeless tire adding undue rotating weight.

KENDA UST (UNIVERSAL SYSTEM TUBELESS) Kenda is certified by Mavic to build tubeless tires to the UST (Universal System Tubeless) standards. Tubeless tires offer decreased rolling resistance for easier pedaling. By eliminating the tube, lower air pressure can be achieved and the chances of pinch flatting is eliminated.

7/26/11 9:43:57 AM


KENDA TECHNOLOGY Tire casing is the fabric that the rubber compound adheres to. The fabric of the casing can be made in varying thickness and threads per inch (TPI). Generally, the higher the TPI number, the more supple the tire sidewall will feel and flex. This means a more comfortable ride compared to that of a lower TPI casing. The casings can be treated and reinforced with various materials in order to achieve different degrees of puncture resistance and ride qualities.

IRON CLOAK Kenda’s best puncture resistant material, a blend of Aramid fibers, is laid up on the tire casing from bead to bead. Not only does this provide puncture protection underneath the tread of the tire, but it also reinforces the tire side walls minimizing slashes or tears; with a minimal addition to the overall tire weight.

IRON CLOAK BELT A thin strip of Kenda’s best puncture resistant material, Iron Cloak, built in directly underneath the tread rubber only, for added puncture protection and minimal weight. Iron Cloak Belt lets you rest assured that your tires are durable, but light and super supple for the ultimate in riding performance.

TECH IRON CAP A layer of material that runs from bead to bead under the tread to prevent flats. IRON CAP combines some of the technology from the high-end IRON CLOAK material without all the added cost.

IRON CAP BELT Utilizing the same protective material that is in the full Iron Cap protection but limited to just under the tread surface, offering added puncture protection at a minimal cost and weight addition. Previously known as PRC2.

CASING ADDED PROTECTION CAP or CAP PLY as it has been referred to is an added layer of material that is under the tread area and runs from bead to bead. Generally used in Kenda Premium Downhill Tires as a puncture resistant material designed to prevent pinch flats.

7/26/11 9:44:19 AM


K-SHIELD A layer of aramid and ceramic particles inside the tire under the tread area only. Designed to prevent punctures. This is Kenda’s first line of defense against punctures.

K-SHIELD PLUS A plus size version of the standard K-Shield material. Five millimeters thick, the layer of aramid and ceramic particles under the tread surface serves to prevent punctures and provide extra comfort on the road. A premium version of Kenda’s first line of flat protection at minimal cost.

K

SHIELD PLUS

+

ENDURANCE The new standard for Kenda in maximum flat protection, available in two different levels of protection and price. The premium level combines a 120tpi casing wrapped from folding bead to folding bead in Aramid Iron Cloak fibers and then topped with K-Shield under the tread rubber. The performance level wraps Iron Cap across a 60tpi wire bead casing and is then topped off with K-Shield under the tread rubber.

TECH

What are the differences between tube type (TT), Tubeless (UST), Sealant Compatible (SCT), and Tubular tires?

Tube Type is the standard for bicycle tires. It mounts to the rim of bicycle wheel with a steel wire bead or an Aramid folding bead, and is inflated with a tube that is placed inside of the tire. The benefits of tube type tires is that they are the least expensive type of tires as well as offering the largest range of sizes and tread styles.

Tubeless UST (Universal System Tubeless) tires, when mounted onto a UST rim, form an air tight bead lock, negating the need for a tube inside of the tire. The air tight seal is achieved by increasing the thickness of the rubber compound across the side walls of the tire as well as changing the shape of the tire bead to match with the UST standard. The benefits of this system include the ability to ride at lower air pressures, giving the rider more tire contact with the ground, and eliminates the tube as a separate component that can be punctured.

Sealant Compatible (SCT) tires can be considered a cross of a tube type and UST type tire. When used with a liquid sealant, SCT tires form an air tight seal, similar to the UST tire, but can be used on almost all bicycle rims. SCT tires have an additional layer of material built into the casing of the tire that allows it to be compatible with the various chemicals in liquid sealants; however this material is thinner and lighter than its UST counterpart. The benefits of SCT tires, when used with sealant, allows the rider to use lower air pressures as well as take full advantage of the liquid sealant compound when it comes to sealing most punctures or cuts in a tire.

Tubular tires are performance orientated tires in which the tube is sewn into the casing of the tire. The tire is then glued onto a rim. Tubulars are primarily used for road racing because of their higher cost and difficulty in mounting. The benefits of tubulars include the ability to run at significantly higher pressures, some tubulars have a max pressure rating of 200psi or higher. Tubulars also have a more supple feel to their ride compared to a tube type tire; this is due in part to the higher TPI fabric used to build tubular tires.

Sunshine, rain, hail, it doesn’t matter. These tires will give you traction in all conditions. Found on Kenda premium road and cyclocross tires.

Dry conditions call for a different type of tire and Kenda knows that. These tires are designed to give the highest level of performance when the road it dry and allow the rider to get the most out of their tires.

Designed to perform optimally in wet weather while still be equally adept on dry pavement.

Just because you ride on hard and dry terrain doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a tire designed for hard pack. Fast rolling and gripping where it needs to, these are the fastest of Kenda’s off road tires.

Hard rock, broken rock, loose material, it doesn’t matter, these Kenda tires will provide maximum traction on the roughest of surfaces. Combine tires with these tread patterns with performance enhancing rubber compounds and you have the winning formula for the most rugged of courses.

When the trail starts to get soft and tires start to slide, these tires are going to provide you with the bite you need to keep traction and keep you up right.

Soup, muck, tar, call it whatever you want; when the trail is super sloppy and nothing bites, look no further than these tires. Able to dig in and provide traction when all other tires fail, and still shed the thickest of mud.

When a snow emergency or ice storm happen, the Kenda snow and ice tires are the only safe choice for the roads. Fitted with carbide tipped studs for maximum traction.

GLOSSARY Casing –is the woven fabric under layer that makes up majority of the tire. The casing can be constructed out of several different fabric types, and can be layered up to create the different ply (layers) of a tire. The casing Runs from bead to bead under the tread and is made up of thread and rubber.

Cord – Every tire has a fabric under layer, referred to as the casing, that serves as the foundation of the tire and

the cord is the individual strands of fabric that form the casing. The cord casing is coated in rubber and then the remainder of the tire is built around this casing. The quality of the cord casing is indicated by the TPI (threads per inch) or EPI (ends per inch). Generally, the higher the threads per inch (TPI) the higher the quality of the tire. In the Kenda line of tires, entry level tires have 22tpi and they rise to 30, 60, and 120tpi at the premium level.

Tread rubber – a separate rubber component that is applied to the casing of the tire prior to the vulcanization and formation of the tread pattern. Once the smooth unformed tread rubber is applied, the tire is inserted into a mold where it is vulcanized. Once vulcanized, the rubber becomes a permanent part of the tire. Wire Bead – a thin steel wire that is spun into the appropriate diameter for the tire that serves as the attachment point between the tire and the rim. Wire beads are generally found on entry level tires or Kenda’s premium downhill tires. Folding Bead – an Aramid string woven into the appropriate diameter for the tire that serves as the attachment point between the tire and the rim. Sometimes referred to as Kevlar Bead tires, folding bead tires are lighter weight than wire bead and are often used on high pressure tires as well as the all of Kenda’s premium road tires.

TPI (Treads Per Inch) – a common indicator of the quality of the casing of a tire. Higher TPI tires are lighter weight and provide a more supple ride. Lower TPI tires are durable and provide greater stability.

Tire mold – can be made of two or more pieces that when pressed together will form the tread pattern of the

tire. While applying high heat energy, a bicycle tire is formed by inflating a bladder, which presses the ‘green’ unvulcanized tire into a negative mold of the tread pattern.

Presta – a high pressure ���skinny” valve sometimes referred to as a French valve. Schrader – a low pressure automotive type valve, sometimes referred to as an American valve.

PRESTA

SCHRADER

Rim Strip – a thin strip of material that protects the tube from potential punctures caused by the holes, nipples, spokes, and other sharp objects. Rim strips come in different materials and sizes to accommodate a wide range of rims, tires, and applications.

E.T.R.T.O. (European Tire and Rim Technical Organization) - also called the ISO number, is the numerical measurement that is used to determine the exact rim compatibility of the tire. The E.T.R.T.O. number is broken into two sets, the first value indicates the width of the tire in millimeters, and the second value indicates the diameter of the rim to tire bead interface in millimeters. Using the E.T.R.T.O. number is the recommended method of finding the right size tire for your rim.

Traditional Sizing System –tires is indicated on the sidewall of a tire and is expressed as two numbers

separated by a ‘X’. The first number is the outside diameter of the tire and the second number is the width. Different countries have different standards for tire sizes and as such have lead to confusion and incompatibility between tires that all share the same outside diameter. For example there are five different tire diameters that all share the traditional size of 26”. To match up traditional sizes one should refer to the E.T.R.T.O. of a tire for exact compatibility. An easy rule to make certain that a compatible replacement tire is chosen is to match up tires that have their traditional size expressed as a fraction with another tire with a fractional size; and tires expressed decimally with other similar decimally expressed tires.
