The Kenda Kozmik Lite II 29" tire is designed for one thing—speed. Tightly-packed, low-profile, wide knobs do little to impede your forward motion, but provide traction for steep climbs and cornering. Kenda's Dual Tread Compound places firm, longer-wearing and deformation resisting rubber down the middle of the tread for high speed rolling. Softer, grippier rubber on the shoulder knobs provide grip and bite when leaning the tire over in turns.
It's 120 TPI casing provides a supple ride, is light, and corners well.
