Optimised for top performance across a range of under-wheel conditions, this fantastic folding tyre uses its professional UR team pedigree to take you speedily and steadily across the mountain. Available in a selection of technologically advanced casings, it does all it can to keep you puncture-free, however rowdy your ride becomes.
Constructed using a dual layer compound, the Hellkat Pro provides unrivalled grip and composure, putting its tubeless-ready design to work as you speed through corners and weave your way to the podium. The centreline of the tyre features alternating rows of siped knobs for impressively low rolling resistance, while the outer edges utilise taller blocks to improve braking traction. All of these features result in a hard-wearing hero of an MTB tyre.
EN-DTC Compound Option: Designed around the rigours of enduro racing. Featuring a lower rolling resistance value than previous dual tread compounds, tyres with EN-DTC show less wear than other similar tyres. With shore A values lower than the original DTC, the EN-DTC provides a more responsive ride, letting the knobs do the work of control and braking on the ground.
RSR DUAL LAYER (RSRDL) Compound Option: Kenda developed this compound for a new generation of gravity tyres - an evolution of the existing Race Stick-E Rubber (RSR) compound. Building on the impressive original, the new RSR compound is a dual layer tread rubber, with the soft RSR compound on top and the stiff SRC on bottom. This new dual layer compound offers better performance because the stiff bottom SRC layer serves as the hard foundation for the softer RSR layer to push against. The result is a compound that provides better control and lasts longer than previous versions.
AGC Compound: The Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) is Kenda‘s latest innovation for gravity orientated riders. Utilizing strips of Kenda Vector Shield (KVS), a lightweight woven aramid material, positioned under the tread area and along the sidewalls to protect the tyre from cuts and punctures. The KVS material offers nearly three times more cut resistance than standard protective materials. A 20mm apex along the bead prevents pinch flats and burping. Our lightest and strongest gravity casing up to date.
AEC Compound Casing (on all compound tyres): Developed for the rigours of enduro, the new Advanced Enduro Casing (AEC) fills the gap between the burly Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) and the weight-optimized Advanced Trail Casing (ATC). Using the same 3-piece Aramid inserts as the AGC casing, AEC omits the apex at the bead: for the same high level of puncture and cut resistance but without the added weight. A dual-layer compound provides the same reliable grip found on the AGC casing.
