Review 1 for Kenda Small Block Eight 700c Tyre
Not as fast on the road but fantastic off-road
PostedSeptember 1, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
My bike came equipped with Continental Speed Kings, which were awful: Heavy and prone to punctures. Then I swapped to a pair of Vittoria cross evo's which were fantastic on the road and on loose gravel, but got a bit scary on mud.
I use my bike mostly for commuting, whicch includes roads, farm tracks and loose gravel. When I first put the Kenda small block tyres I was impressed by the light weight and quality, however, as soon as I went out I could see they had much greater rolling resistance compared with the Vittoria's I was using before. I even thought about returning the tyres until I went offroad with them, which is where they really shine. These are increadible on loose gravel and a bit of mud. The tires are so grippy, that I just look forward to the next gravel or mud section of my ride. The tires are also quite plush and confortable, so I tend to run them at higher pressure than I did before, which has made it better on the road as well.
Overall a great product. Quite happy with these for a winter tyre.
