I've used the Kenda Kwest tires for the last two sets of tires on my Rans V-rex. I've been getting neary 3,000 miles on the back tire before replacement! I've been running with Tuffy tire liners to minimize flats too and haven't had a flat since. They are a great price too! I would highly recommend.
100PSI relief-tread tires that make your 26 bike FLY down the road and yet offer some protection from hazards. Great for that commuter bike made from an old MTB.
Have been riding in temps up to 104F and tire appears to be holding up. Riding every day 6-30 miles, mostly on paved bike paths ... Smooth riding so far.
Ride 50-70 miles oncetwice per month...sidewalk - major hi-way - city street bike-lanes paved bike paths. Mostly flat with some climbing elevations at 4 degrees...tracks very good.
I only have 100 miles on these but I have to say I am impressed. The more I ride them the happier I am with them. They mounted easy, and seem to be tough enough as I have had no punctures. I would recommend the 100psi option. As these went on a mountain bike, the harder tire hasn't been an issue for me.
I put these tires on an old two person Schwinn bike. So far everything is working great. I did have to get different rims for the bike tires because the ISO was different from the older rims that were on the bike. The high pressure tires give me more confidence having twice the weight on the tires.
Purchased a 1.5, 100 pair to replace 2.125 on a tandem. These really are faster tires with less drag. Prior to purchase, contacted Kenda regarding choice of the low pressure with the flat guard or the high pressure that did not have any. They got back right away to me and I selected the high pressure. No problems so far and almost look forward to the inclines during the Trek Across Maine now.
I installed a couple of these amazing tires on my wife's mountain bike so that we could ride together Without having to buy her a new road bike. They're amazing. Get the high pressure tires, as they will limit friction on the road. They feel rock solid.
These tires suffered two punctures in the first 200 miles. A tiny piece of glass made a huge gash in the tread. These tires also don't roll very well either, feel a bit sluggish.
I bought these for a wheelchair that sees a lot of off road use. They have suffered one puncture through two sets of use and they wear well and provide good traction. Also mount easily and the bead seems very tough. I'll be buying a third set when these wear out.
My mountain bike moostly sees city riding .... I like the low end gearing for moving loads of groceries, trips to the hardware store, etc. The stock mountain bike knobby tires were terrible in the rain and just way too big for my needs. These tires how ever, are just about perfect for sloching around wet Vancouver Washington streets!
I ride my hybrid in the city. Don't do much unpaved road riding anymore so changed the tires hoping for a little more speed. Was worried about sacrificing control on wet roads or making quick turns. But these tires have made me happy in both categories. Smooth ,quiet ride.
This is a nice affordable tire for rail trail riding on my comfort bike, whether paved or crushed gravel. It has even performed well on some slightly more rugged sections of the trail.
Comfortable, stable and efficient.
If I usually rode pavement, I would probably opt for the high pressure, although I don't notice any issues with the lower pressure version that I have been using.
This 100psi tire is the perfect replacement tire for my Bigha recumbent bicycle. I have been unable to locate this tire at bike shops and BTD always has exactly what I need. I've ridden thousands of mile on each set of this tire and the tread is excellent. It holds up extremely well to road hazards. I've never experienced a flat despite riding on roads where goatheads and other bike tire enemies are ever present. The bottom line is I trust this tire and it's never disappointed me.
