Fast hybrid tires, vulnerable to sharp debrid

Pro

It's a fast tire for pavement and light dirt duty. Turned my old mountain bike into a quick commuter.

Con

The thin wall tends to allow cuts into the tire. I've had one cut by glass and a 2nd one cut by metal wires on the street.

Great replacements for my knobbies

I rarely ride off-road. I wanted tires that gripped well in sandy roads, hard packed dirt, not so well maintained roads and occasional use on dirt roads. I wanted less rolling resistance without sacrificing grip. These tires met that challenge. I have increased my normal ride speed on my mountain bike from 11 to 14 mph average. I have only had them a short time so I can't talk about wear or flat tires.

Good Suburban Tire

I can't say the tire is awesome, but it works well for us and I would recommend them. Most of our riding is on the road hard pack and we haven't had a problem with flats. To me, the sidewall looks thin, so I don't know how well they'd hold up on sharp gravel or rough terrain.

Great tires for riding Richmond VA streets.

Replaced 'mountain bike' tires with these to adapt to urban streets due to recent move. So far, these are performing just as needed.

You get more than what you pay for!

These tires are great. Good looking, fast, and tough. Rode them around in rough alleys and glass strewn parking lots on purpose to proof Test them. They pass with flying colors.

The one minor complaint? They are a bit harsh riding. But given the toughness of them, it's well worth the tradeoff. Highly recommended.

Great tire for the price,would recommend to anyone riding multiple surfaces.

I ride the Great Allegheny Passage the trail and it is a mix of pavement crushed limestone and dirt. The tire performed well on all three surfaces. I run it with 50psi so when I transition from each surface I have good contact. I inflated the tire to 40psi and the tire fells flat at 60 psi you might as well run with slicks. You will find 50psi will this will slow you down a little. I'm not racing just out to get some exercise and enjoy the views along the rivers.

Paper thin sidewalls

I ordered these in the beginning of January to replace some dry rotted tires on my mountain bike. They arrived, everything appeared good. I installed them and aired them up... still good. Took a 10 mile tour on a bike path not far from my house. The path is pretty clean except for some twigs. Next weekend, I notice a cut. I called up BTD and they shipped another one out, wondering if maybe it was damaged in packaging. 4 months later, and no use on this bike except the bike path (approx 15 trips, about 150 miles), another cut. I ran no more than 40 PSI, and avoided all hazards I could. These tires... go ahead and order them... and notice those super thin sidewalls for yourself.

Great overall tire with minimal compromising

these tires are very functional dispite what people may think about the agressive tread on the sides. these tires really made mine and my dads mountain bike have the best of both worlds. we wanted the rugged durability and suspension of a mountain bike, but since we ride on the road a lot too, the constant resistance of fully agressive tread mountain bike was tough. not to mention they wear down faster. these tires are the best combo of fully slick and agressive tread. i think they are much better then tires that are fully slick or fully studded but still try to do both. i think these tires can help people get the most out of there bike.

A must have if you ride your Mountain bike on paved surfaces.

I ride 11 miles a day for exercise on paved bike trails. With knobby tires I averaged 15mph and with the K847's I am easily 16 mph. Much faster to accelerate if you slow down to get around someone. The coast time is improved considerably! I am 240 pounds and they hold me fine!

Great for Hybrid cycling

I love the Kenda Kross tires. They ride like street tires on asphalt and concrete, and have the grip of cyclocross tires on rough terrain. They cut my drag and times significantly over other hybrid tires I have tried.

Tires got here the next day!!!! What the.....? Thanks a bunch.Have them on other bikes, they work great!

Great commuter tire as thick center rib rolls smooth and provides extra puncture resistance. I now have them on 5 of my bikes,and yes, I know I have a bike problem. I don't ride on dirt much, but a local gravel short cut proved these tires worthy of that surface as well. to sum up........great urban commutercruiser tire for the price. AND they got here next day with standard UPS delivery.

Great tire for commuting. Fast and durable. First set lasted several thousand miles. Flats are rare as the main tread section is thick.

Good but K835 is better

An ok tire with an agressive-looking tread. Good looking, but you might as well just have slicks. The picture shown here is an uninflated tire, which makes the aggressive-looking side knobs look like they will engage more quickly than they do. The slick central road strip, when inflated at operating pressure, bulges quite a bit more than shown. The slick strip is therefore quite a bit too wide and too far removed from the side knobs to allow them to engage when they are needed. The knobs won't bite unless you are on the softest of trails - mud or snow. At which point, they aren't enough to get you through.

A far better tire, but as far as I can tell, only available in Canada, is the Kenda K-835 26x1.75. The central strip is far narrower on that tire, with knobs directly to either side of the strip as well as off on the edges like this one. This means the narrow strip will sink down and let the knobs engage on trails that are gravel, or medium loose pack, but still give you low rolling resistance on paved surfaces.

BikeTiresDirect.com Comments

Hi Kudalufi,

Thanks for the review. We recommend the K847 Kross Plus primarily for road and only light duty dirt use. The edging knobs on that tire are really only designed to engage once the tire is leaned into a corner, to help offer some added grip in slightly loose conditions. While we do inflate all tires before taking our photos, there's a great point being made here about tire width affecting grip. We'd only add that rim width plays a huge role in this, and the narrower your rim, the more rounded this tire's final profile would be, moving the side knobs further out to the sides and leaving only the slick portion around the primary contact patch of the tire. Wider rims would bring the knobs into more contact with the terrain, even when not at an angle.

Thanks,
Stacia

Sliced Bread

I bought my first MTB, a used Specialized Hardrock Pro which I use for rail trails, camping, gravel trails and just exercise. The Kenda Enduro tires it came with were good for off-road but not for street use. Rough riding and lots of rolling resistance. After reading another review here about the K847 and Katy Trail I had to give them a try and am glad I have. They've transformed the bike into what I need. They're good on grass, trails and of course pavement. They roll easily and are comfortable. Great tire for the MTB commuter, casual rider. Going to ride the Virginia Creeper Trail and these tires should be perfect.

Tire performs better than expected!

These tire replace standard mountain bike (knobby) tires. Bike is ridden mostly on light trails and roads on 10-25 mile rides on average. Very fast and smooth rolling. Lighter than expected. Very pleased with this product. Highly recommend, out-performs other tires in price range.

Lower rolling resistance

Due to its inherent resistance I noticed that my bike lost speed going slightly downhill, unless I pedaled. At my age (71) each Watt is important. Liners made matters worse, but where I live,there are lots of thorns on the tar due to people mowing their lawns and spattering the thorns all over. Liners are a must. With these tires my bike picks up speed on the same downhill, even with liners. Makes my daily run a pleasure

Great cross training tire !!

I just switched to these cross training tires and they are much better on the road than the full on mud tires that I have been riding with. These tires are fast on the road and still have surprisingly good traction off road as well.

These tires are exactly what I was looking for !!

A great commuting tire

If you use a mountain bike for commuting as I do, this is the tire for you. Have you ever looked at the wear pattern on the tires you have now? That's why this tire makes so much sense, flat down the middle where we spend most of our time riding, and where we want to go as fast as possible. And knobby on the sides for when we need it leaning into a turn and you hit a bit of loose stuff hear the edge of the road, for example.

I would have preferred it if the tire could have been shipped without folding it. I had to let it relax on the dining room table for a couple of days before I put it on the bike.

Great Value and Good Fit

I do a lot of rail-trail and double track riding around the vineyards here in Eastern WA. Have been riding on a Maxxis Worm Drive 26x1.90 front tire and pretty much wore that one out. This Kenda is probably going to be a better tire because the tread depth in the center rib is considerably thicker than the WD when it was new. The fit on my Mavick Cross Trail rim is about perfect. My only issue is that the tire was pretty wrinkled up when I unboxed it so the no-flat strip couldn't be properly installed. I mounted and inflated it and let it sit overnight. Should be in some semblance of a doughnut shape by now and ready to break back down and install the strip.
