Our review

Kenda's benchmark all-rounder is a grippy, none-too-slow option. But it’s fragile when the rocks start flying

The Kenda Nevegal’s ramp-fronted knobs increase speed while retaining grip for climbs. Add the DTC dual-compound rubber recipe and you’ve got a tyre that will dredge reasonable traction out of all but the dirtiest trails. It doesn’t drag noticeably on fireroad climbs or other transitional trails either.

The rounded profile with staggered intermediate and shoulder lugs rolls easily into turns with a neutral feel that stretches into a controllable slide. The price is par for the features and weight is reasonable for size. Kendas suffer more pinch flats than other comparable tyres though, so are less suited to rockier ground.
