The Small Block Eight is one of fastest rolling tires in Kenda Pro Series line, featuring the same knob profile as the Kenda Nevegal, but in a scaled down version. This SCT model also features a tubeless ready design for hassle-free conversion.

Designed to be ridden in hard pack conditions, the low profile tread pattern creates a tire that has very little rolling resistance, and yet still maintains good traction. Ample spacing helps bite down in the turns. The DTC rubber compound provides an excellent blend of durability, traction and speed. Kenda's SCT casing specifically designed for tubeless conversion, without the extra weight of a UST bead.

This version of the Kenda Small Block Eight SCT is available in 29 x 2.10 Inch (54-622 ISO). 120 TPI casing. Folding bead. 50 max. PSI. Claimed weight: 671 grams.

Great Tires So Far

Ive ridden 360 miles of mostly gravel, a little pavement and a few miles of Singletrack. These tires have been very stable in large and small gravel and deep sand due to their size (29 x 2.1). Cornering in gravel is good, havent found the traction limit yet. ^) Rough roads, washboard and mildly rocky Singletrack has been smooth sailing. They seem to do fine in mud, but I havent been in the sticky stuff yet. Speed has been good with them and they roll better than I expected on pavement and do not sound like a truck. Seems like this bike and tire combination will ride well anywhere I want to go. Kendas are little pricey, but they have never let me down. Ive worn out three sets of Kenda Flintridge Pros on my other gravel bike with only one flat. The Flintridge does not come in my size for the new bike, but Im liking the SB8s. Bike is a Trek 920 29r.

Good XC tire for asphalt and dirt roads

OK , most of the other reviews are for the older version of this tire. Older took higher pressure. This is the foldable, dual compound version that is SCT tubeless sealant compatible. Pressure rating 30-50 psi.

I was able to mount the tire on DTSwiss rims without sealant with a normal JoeBlow pump. I wiped the tire bead and rim off with Windex beforehand. Held 40-45 lb pressure for a week. Then added sealant through valve. Tire good for hardpack and asphalt getting to the dirt, and is fairly light.... weighed about 650-670 gr. I would buy again.

poor puncture resistance

No resistance whatsoever to thorns and other sharp objects. 5 punctures in 60km of trail riding. Switched to Conti, and none in the last 400km on same trails

Perfect Tire

Great tire for interurban trails, roads, gravel roads, and moderate MTB. If you are riding all sorts of terrain this is the best tire I have found. Yes, it will wash out a bit on gravel, but all tires will.

Great traction, lots of thorn flats.

Great traction for what I ride, but I am getting lots of blackberry thorn flats. I have gotten 5 this summer alone. The tires are only 6 months old too.

Favorite summer tire for dry Post Canyon single track

Excellent traction on hardpack trail with dirt 'ball bearings' in the corners. I usually pump these up to 75-80lbs for trip to the trailhead, sometimes 15mi on pave, then drop pressure to 35lb for the dirt. The sidewalls are a bit fragile for rock garden riding, but the tread wears well, and they are superior to all other heavy tread tires in the rock-hard dirt of summer.

Great on hard pack loose in sand and other soft conditions

Great tire for hard pack. Grips great on both front and back again on hard pack, but the front kept washing out in looser conditions, so I changed the front tire to one with a more aggressive tread. Kept the small block 8 on the rear and works great
