Kenda Slant Six 26 Tire

Our Price: $34.99 - $35.99

Intended Use

  • Street "Street" tires are lightweight with minimal to no tread. Casings will have varying levels of flat protection depending on brand and application. Street tires tend to be comparatively narrower
  • XC "XC" tires must be lightweight and have low rolling resistance above all. Single-ply sidewalls are common if rocks and technical terrain are not issues. Very low profile knobs cut down weight and increase rolling speed
  • Trail "Trail" tires show a combination of reduced weight for climbing and acceleration. Traction and protection against pinch flats while descending is increased compared to XC tires.
  • Enduro "Enduro" tires tend to feature more traction than trail tires, but less protection and support than DH tires to keep weight manageable for climbing. More prominent corner knobs and wider casings are common
  • FR/DH "FR/DH" tires have tough casings for pinch flat and puncture protection. Extra sidewall support allows low tire pressure. Large volume, aggressive knobs dig in and grab through turns and provide confident bike handling and effective braking

  • The perfect blend of the Small Block 8 and Nevegal

Apparently when you cross two of Kenda's most exceptional tires, something magical happens. The Slant Six was born of the marriage of a Nevegal and Small Block 8. The knob seperation and height is between a Small Block 8 and Nevegal, so this really is the best of both worlds. The Slant Six is faster rolling than the Nevegal and hooks up better on more terrain than the Small Block 8. The center knobs are ramped in the front to roll fast, yet have a stepped backside so they hook up better under braking. Kenda's Dual Trad Compound lends even more cornering traction, and a fast rolling 120 tpi casing remains supple and lightweight. 

The Slant Six excels in hardpack and loamy soil. It should perform well in stoney terrains as well, but the shallow knob height would make the Nevegal a better choice for gravely terrain.
