Kenda's K1065 Kommando X Pro Tire further spaces out the knobs compared to the standard Kommando Pro, and they're also taller for more grip and mud-shedding ability when the cyclocross course starts to fight back. The DTC Dual Tread Compound puts a quick-rolling hard rubber in the center and a softer, grippier rubber at the shoulders to increase the tire's balanced characteristics of speed, durability, and traction. Wrapped underneath is Kenda's Iron Cloak puncture protection barrier and a superior quality 120 TPI tubeless-ready KSCT casing for a super supple ride.
700c diameter. Available in multiple widths. Folding bead. 120 TPI casing. Tubeless ready. Claimed weight is 417 g (33 mm width).

Mounted on Easton EC90SL disc wheels on my gravel bike, the 36mm tires measure 38mm wide. The weight was 440 grams on a digital scale, as I recall. Sealed up fine with two ounces of Stans. Compared to the old 35mm Kommando that I mounted tubeless on Ultegra wheels, the X Pro is more supple and the tread pattern is wider and rounder, and the blocks are slightly larger. Good mud shedding. Very happy with these tires, I have beat the heck out of them for a couple months now.
