Converted my MTB to road bike. They made a big difference and the ride is more comfortable and less stressful. At this point I have nothing negative to say about these tires.
I have had a set of kenda tires on my bike for 7 years and finally wore the back tire down to the tube which resulted in a flat. My bike has a total of 19,000 miles on it and I would estimate 12,000 miles was with kenda tires. that is why I replaced them with the the kenda k193 26 inch tire.
These are very affordable long wearing tires. Be sure to check whether they are the high pressure or low pressure rated tires because Kenda makes both in this size. I like the higher pressure tires.
Ive been riding Kenda Kwest road tires for two years now and have been extremely happy with their performance. I have a classic 80s Giant Iguana Mtn Bike which I utilize for both road & trail! I have two separate pairs of rims for switching to whatever type I have the itch for. The tires average between 2000 - 3000 miles before replacing and the road surface, although not the worse, certainly is not the best. I do team these tires up with liners to avoid flats!
I purchased these Kenda's to install on my HardRock Specialized and they are awesome! I use my HardRock to train on my bike trainer and these tires are smooth as a baby's butt and roll on my trainer effortlessly! If you're looking for a smooth rolling tire, than these Kenda's will not disappoint!
Bought these tires to replace a ten year old set of Continental Sport Contact 26 x 1.6 and while the Kenda K193 are not as supple, you cant beat the 100 psi max inflation pressure. All in all, very satisfied with purchase.
I ride around the neighborhood, occasionally off the road on dirt or gravel tracks. This tire is so much better that the previous road tires I had put on my mountain bike. Feels like a new bike.
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.
