Too many snake bite flats

Had these tires for a month and have experienced snake bite flats. Plenty of air in tires, 120 psi. Haven't had a snake bite flat that I can remember in years.

Very good tire

This tire is the best at what it is, a low cost training tire. If you want very fast tires buy RACING tires, if you want long lasting durable tires buy CITY TOURING tires. I use these on one of my road bikes as a commuter, and they are the best possible compromise between weight ,durablity, and function. 1000-1200 miles is all I'll ask of thes tires, so I'll buy new each year.

Very, Very, Disappointed

Been using these tires for over two years and have experienced many more flats on regular routes always assuming, at first bad luck. Recently have also noticed the tires becoming distorted, forming S curves then totally failing. (probably internal cords failing)

Will not buy these again, not even for $5, stay away

Never again.

Bought these based on the good reviews - not only here, but by other cycling magazines.

I cycle about 150-200 miles a week. These tires feel sluggish and flat often. In less than 300 miles, there were 4 flats in the rear - all from debris - not pinch flats. Many would argue it's the terrain - except it's the exact same route I've taken for 4 years - where there have never been any issues.

Prior to that, I've used Panaracers, Specialized Armadillo's, Giant brand, and now Continentals. None, have given me issue's like the Kadence.

Never again.

great value and an excellent tire

I was looking for a durable road tire for training rides and the kenda kadence was jus the trick. There are a lot of rough chip sealed roads where I rode and they really eat tires up but the kendas have held up well with very light wear and no flats

Heavy/Flat Often

In less than 400 miles, I've flatted 3-4 times on these things. Yes, flats are very dependent on where you ride - but this is on the same ride that I ride every day.

For comparison, my last set of Panaracers didn't flat once in 1,000 miles on the same route, and my Armadillo tires performed just as well (no flats) over 2,500 miles.

I bought the Kadence's based on the good reviews here, and on other cycling websites - however, I've disliked these ever since mounting them. Not to mention, I'm running out of tubes.. lol.

My next purchase will be a set of Continentals, hopefully better luck with them.

Great tire, great value!

Rolls well and is a good high mileage tire. Was kind of a tight fit when first installed. Excellent value.

Excellent training tire at a very good price

I use this tire basically as a 2 to 3 days a week training tire. Usually putting 20 to 35 miles on them per ride. I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary with these tires. I really haven't noticed them, so that is good. No flats and probably have 350 or so miles on them. Only have used them on dry pavement so not really sure of the wet pavement performance. Sticks really well on dry

Great Tire for the price

I got this tire and put it on my older steel frame road bike. I immediately was riding faster. They hold up well around corners and in rainy situations. I've been riding on them for about 200 miles now. I've had two or three flats, but the tires are holding up well. For the price you can't go wrong with these.

The price and the quality are acceptable for a decent training tire. It is what it is

Training road only, handling is acceptable. I ride a lot so they could last a bit longer. I would guess I am getting about 2,000 miles out of a tire.
