Kenda Tire has tubeless tires in several construction types. Each construction serves a specific purpose and has different tubeless characteristics. The list below details the various types and their tubeless attributes.
Tubeless Race (TR) – Tubeless Race is the lightest tubeless ready construction Kenda offers. It is the ideal construction for riders with separate race day wheels or the rider looking for the lightest possible tire. Given the light weight, TR tires require additional attention to maintain a quality seal and long-term air pressure.
Sidewall Casing Technology (SCT / KSCT), Gravel Casing Technology (GCT), Tubeless Road (TLR), and Advanced Trail Casing (ATC) – while protection under the tread differs on these tires, all of these casings feature similar protection across the sidewalls for tubeless optimization and protection. Mounting and tubeless set up are easier and these tires have superior air retention.
Advanced Enduro Casing (AEC) and Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) – Tires with these tubeless ready casings have densely woven aramid on the sidewalls and under the tread surface. These are very robust tires with excellent flat protection and good air retention.
E-Mountain Casing (EMC) – Tubeless ready tires certified for the fastest e-bikes! Like some other flat protections that aid in tubeless optimization, the EMC casing 3-piece protection features coarse Nylon fibers tightly woven together across the sidewalls of the tire.
