If you have to choose one tire for any type of terrain from hard pack to loose to mud, Kenda's Nevegal is it, hands down. To be adaptable and excel in any condition, the Nevegal is equipped with small tapered and ramped knobs with multiple edges for extra grip. Tie bars connect the transition knobs with the cornering knobs for stability and predictable hard cornering. And, the Dual Tread Compound offers a center tread with Kenda's L3R Pro rubber for long life and durability while the cornering knobs boast STICK-E rubber for unreal cornering. Kenda must be doing something right, Mountain Bike Action Magazine named it the best mountain tire four years in a row!
