Don't grovel in the gravel.

Named after the gravel-road laden Flint Hills of Kansas, the Kenda K1152 Flintridge Pro Tire gobbles up loose rock like nobody's business. The fast rolling center tread keeps speed on hardpack, but grippier transition and shoulder knobs provide excellent bite when the terrain gets loose and rocky. This balance of low rolling resistance and traction is enhanced by the Flintridge Pro's dual tread compound that features L3R Pro 60A durometer rubber down the middle and a softer 50A Stick-E rubber on the sides. It's built over a 120 TPI KSCT casing that protects the sidewalls from cuts and abrasions while also making the Flintridge Pro tubeless-ready so you can grab some extra performance and comfort on your next gravel grinder.

700c diameter. 120 TPI casing. Tubeless ready. Folding bead. Available in multiple widths. Claimed weights are 481 g (35 mm) and 515 g (40 mm).

My favorite gravel tire

I've tried a few different gravel tires and settled on these. The 40c gives a good ride wgood traction and durability and feels like it rolls faster than others. Im a larger rider and this tire gives a nice ride for me w47-50 psi.

These tires are my first excursion into the tubeless world and I can't be more happier in how easy they were to set up, just a few small burps in the first 20 miles. I like how fast they roll on hard pack and they really hold on in the corners. I also feel my climbing has gotten better (reduced rolling resistance?). I now have over 350 miles on them and they show no wear at all.

Great tire in 35. I'm going to try the 40s
rating

I've been riding these tires on the gravel for two years now in 35s, which I chose mainly because I was used to riding cyclocross tires 31-33. The tires have seen a lot of abuse including long gravel rides such as the Gorge Gravel Grinder and they're not showing much wear yet. They've proven to be a great balance of road efficiency and gravel traction (there's always compromises, right?). I'm going to try the 40s on this year's Gorge Gravel Grinder, giving up, perhaps, a little on the pavement for a little more comfort on the long gravel stretches.

I bought these tires for my new bike to do gravel rides, and I must say that they are working as I had hoped. The first time I used them I was glad I had chosen these tires, since there are many to choose from. They ride smoothly and have plenty of grip on the roads.

What a tire

This tire has been on my gravel bike for 2 months now. The wear is minimal, they grab when I need and roll when I dont. Not as soft as other tires but they are made to be a little more resilient to tough conditions.

GAP, C&O & Ohio Erie Canal Approved!
rating
by dem816

Norton, OH

Performed flawlessly on the Ohio Erie Canal towpath over many miles leading up to a week riding the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal trails self-contained over a week last summer. Ohio Erie was soft at times from rain and the Flintridge held its grip. Major rain the night before heading onto the C&O Canal towpath left large areas of standing water on the trail for about 23rds of the 189-mile-long trail. Again, the Flintridge performed well under full load. Would definitely purchase this tire again. Oh yeah - no punctures!

Couldn't run tubeless

Tried to set these up tubeless but could never get a good seal and they would be flat by morning. Kenda says these are tubeless compatible (SCT) but it didn't work for me. I'm going back to a UST tire. I'll still run these with tubes as they have a great tread profile.

Grippy and durable tires but are prone to not seat well at first. The tires go right onto Bontrager 700c rims... too easily. They are a pain to seat due to being so loose on the rim. They are also prone to bulging being lopsided and need to be coaxed kneaded a lot to seat properly. Re seated bead twice but still are not super true and they aren't going to get any better. At high speed the lopsidedness is very obvious. At lower speeds it doesn't really effect ride. These get a meh. Sorry.

Great rolling tire for Gravel grinding at a decent price. I run these at about 30 PSI and they work well in both hardpack and mud. Plus they perform well on pavement on the way to the rough stuff.

I found this tire to puncture easily and then not seal well with Stan's. I also had it delaminate completely near the bead rendering the tire worthless. I likely didn't have 500 miles on the tire when it failed. I'm glad I bought these on sale as they aren't worth full price.

The Flintridge has proven to be fast and durable for riding a mix of gravel and hard pack dirt roads. Low rolling resistance and confident cornering for gravel riding.

I haven't put a lot of miles on this tire but so far I like what I see. The tread is robust wo being too knobby. I ride a combination of gravel and pavement and like to have one do-it-all tire.

Great traction vs weight

I picked these up about a month ago because I was looking for a durable, lower weight 40c gravel racing tire without giving up traction. These were 490g each (on my scale) and I set them up tubeless on 21mm internal wheels. I expected them to stretch and increase in width, but they seem to be a true 40c. No issues so far with about 300 miles on them. I've tried 20-35psi and I've settled around 27.
