 Sweet sneakers. These are grippy, light, fast rolling, have great cornering and braking traction, look good, feel good. Overall sexy tire. Come in different sizes, i have 2.35 with DTC, great for trail riding and 2.5 stickee, great for down-hilling. Good traction in all conditions.

 Very grippy, I'm very confident with these tires under me. Even in rainy conditions these tires hold up very well. The only thing that could be improved is the softness of the tire. Even though that would mean a shorter life for the tire it would increase the grip of the tire and make it unbeatable as far as grip is concerned.

 Hands down one of the best tires I've ever ridden. I'll start with the only draw back. It doesn't roll as fast as I'd like. That said, it's got more grip than any tire I've ever run. I can carry a ton of lean angle through the corners with confidence at speed. I had a moment where my tires slipped, and on any other tire I would have washed out and gone down, but the Nevegals found traction and I kept on riding. Great product!

 I switched to the 2.35 up front because my friend told me to give it a try and he didn't have a need for it at the time. Man i still don't wanna give the tire back! It has so much traction in the dry and in the wet, stiff sidewalls, and wears pretty well too. I definitely will stick with the Nevies for a long time.

 I just picked up a pair of 2.35 Nevegals with ScT and they are great! I've been riding a standard 2.1 Nevegal DTC on a Mavic 819 rim with Stan's sealant (Rear only) for the past year and haven't had any issues. I've ridden this setup in some pretty aggressive wet "North Shore" terrain (Galbraith Mt.) , plus dry Southern Utah (Gooseberry Mesa, Bearclaw, etc.) and love it! The ScT version definitely has a thicker sidewall and a stronger bead over the standard version. It is very similar to the Specialized Control 2Bliss tires, but defintely not as burly as my 2.35 Maxxis High Roller UST (not LUST). I highly recommend the ScT version!

 This tire was great! I had these on my freeride bike and did not ever rotate them. Finally after almost 4 years, the rear tire is wearing out. One of th knobs on the outside peeled off after a Whistler trip. The tire on the front still looks brand new and will be swapping it to the rear. This tire is sticky enough for the traction you want, without wearing out after a few races.

 they are quite grippy but they are not as strong as other tires out there. i've ridden on them for six months now and i've popped 5 tubes so i bought maxxis DHR's and they are great.

if you want a good Tyre to DH on, don't get this, get maxxis DHR's

 Hooks up on almost everything. Great on rocky and loose, hard pack, damp - wet. Knobs have enough meat they don't fold and squirm. Pretty damn light. Decent durability. Casing supple enough to allow tire to work well. Just a good (off road) tire. Will a buy this tire again. YUP!

 These tires are just awesome! They have the best traction in every type terrain possible that I have been challenged with. Extremely great in fast turns and ripping through rock gardens & root laden trails. Exceptional DH and FR tires.

 i run the 2.3 on the front with a 2.3 highroller on the rear...nugget set up! light rotating weight and relatively good rolling resistance make for a super good ride! i ride mostly dry, dusty, loose, rocky, and rooty fr/dh trails and it is amazing! while i have ripped a decent sized hole in the sidewall of the highroller on a particularly nasty part of a trail, the nevegal is still running strong!

 The tire has tons of grip for the conditions I ride in. They don't wear too fast and are reasonably priced. It seems to have a lot of rolling resistance. It is also quite a bit heavy and not meant for a pedaling bike unless you get in tubeless

 I use them almost everywhere where is a lift , once you have to pedal on them long distance you gonna hate them as the same like if you ride on aroad, but once you hit the steeps you never wanna change. Perfect grip in all conditions, my most favourite tire for wet and mud, when conditions ask for it I ride them like about only 0,8-1,2 bar and I´ve never get through it.
Grips on all surfaces, dust, stones, mud, roots wet shit, wooden obstacles. I run 2,5 but will switch for 2,35 to get some weight down and speedd up

 I like it looks like a crap load of other people think it works great also . I haver been using a 2.35" rear setup. Seems like it works fine wet or dry. i think it is a little over kill in the hard pack and would figure a 2.1" rear might still be good.

 They just simply do everything I ask of them. Pacific Northwest single track, mud, slippery roots and rocks, sand and hard pack. The only thing I adjust is air pressure. I have ridden several other makes over the years- but have bought several sets of Nevegals now and don't see changing. I do wish I could find a decal of their tread pattern to put across my truck's back window!

 These tires are so sick. Being from Utah i ride all kinds of dirt and i have yet to be disappointed. if you have a chance to get these tires DO IT!!!!! the STICK-E compound drags on the road but it rapes the dirt! 10 of 10 on these Nevegals

 I live near Portland, OR and run into wet trails almost year round. These tires have been fantastic for the last two years I've been riding them. The only con would be that, well, they are a bit noisy on hard pack or pavement. So if you plan to stay on the road, don't buy these.

 This tire is solid. I ride a 2.35 for Dh and its so fast and burly I might just ride nothing else. I have owned Maxxis Highrollers which are mainly the only entity when it comes to rubbers but these Kendas stand right up against them. I am very impressed

 Another amazing tire from Kenda that I used for X-Country rides as well as riding to work. Used for 2 seasons and still have life left. Lots of good traction, decent side wall and not prone to punctures.

 This tire has an awesome grip on a lot of dry conditions and light loose rocky conditions, which are what my local trails consist of. Only down fall is when they get caught up in deep mud, they tend to become a bit slick.

 Highly recommended-I've been using these for two years-flat free! The traction is great, and the fact that you can air them up as high as 60psi, or as low as 40 psi is a huge help with varying terrain

 Stock on my 2010 Giant Trance X3 but the tire is amazing. Great traction up an down hill. I have been digging my bike much deeper into turns than I ever had before. This is one of the most popular tires for a reason!

 Pros - these tyres are good and grippy, grip well in corners.
Cons - they dont climb well for some reason just slip on loose terrain.

 Most heads run these when they want nothing to do with pinch flats due to high speed rock gardens. Throw heavy duty downhill tubes in her and leave the patches home.
