Channel your inner levitation artist with the Kenda Havok Pro Tubeless Tires. With a lofty 27.5-by-2.8-inches of rubber to float you over roots and rocks, these tires are eager to prove themselves through versatile trails. They capture an ideal balance of quick-rolling and trail-grabbing characteristics thanks to a combination of open tread pattern throughout the center, and aggressive outer lugs that sink their teeth into loose dirt through steep banked berms and hair-pin switchbacks.
When the engineers at Kenda crafted the Havok Pro Tires they didn't skimp on the tech. With Dual Tread Compound (DTC), the tires offer you hard, long lasting rubber for fast rolling at the center of the tread, while a second rubber completes the binary compound with grip thanks to its soft and tacky tendencies. This combination creates a ride feel not unlike an XC tire throughout the center, but with all-mountain and trail grip when you blast into loose sections of trail. The tires also feature Kenda's new KSCT modification that enables compatibility with fluid-based tubeless conversion systems. For added protection, the tires are equipped with Kenda's Tubeless Race casing that holds up to sharp roots that might poke out while you're floating down the trail.

- Q & A
Fine at first but didn't last long
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this tire to run on the rear of my 429 Trail. I normally run 29er wheels but was testing how the plus sized tires worked with the loosening conditions that summer brings. Initially I was quite satisfied with the tire, it wasn't overly bulky and the traction seemed good. I rode the trails with these tires for about a month (800-900 mi) before I noticed that the center knobbies were just about worn away. At this rate it looks like I'll have a few more weeks riding before the center is completely bald. Not very impressive.
