Description Technical Specs
 

The Booster is a World Cup proven XC race tire that is aggressive enough to push traction to new limits. On top of that, it is also one of the fastest and lightest XC tires on the market. You no longer want to choose between a XC tire that is both fast and light, or provides great traction? The Booster combines the best of both worlds.

  • New tread design - Modern and aggressive look, optimized for fast rolling and best in class cornering traction.
  • New race compound - The Booster utilizes a newly developed race compound that is fast and grippy, especially on dry, loose over hard and rough and rocky terrain.
  • Offered in two different casings - TR and SCT (with side wall protection).
  • Tubeless ready

5 of 5 Fast, light, good grip August 26, 2021
Reviewer: Robert from Pinckney, MI United States  
Tires shopped quickly to Michigan.
The tires have an excellent blend of light weight, suppleness and traction for our Sandy hardpack trails in southeast Michigan.  Their feel in turns is predictable, with no unexpected strangeness.
When I first aired up the tires tubeless on 23mm Bontrager XXX rims, there was a substantial air leak at the bead, which sealed immediately when the Orange Seal sealant contacted the leak.  It was concerning because I've never encountered this issue with a tubeless tire.  But in 2 weeks, there have been no issues.
I can't wait to try the Hellcat ATC when they are in stock.  
Kenda is definitely back in the game.

2 of 5 Sidewall holes before first ride July 8, 2021
Reviewer: David Drake from Redlands, CA  
I ordered my Booster TR 2.4 29" tire just before Stephen posted his 6/17 review.  My Booster arrived two days ago and I seated it on my 27 mm rim this morning.  No problem with rim seating, however I heard a hiss once I pumped it up.  Sure enough – it has sidewall holes!  I am guessing Stephen and I received tires from the same faulty batch.

By contrast, I had no problem with my Kenda Saber KSCT or Kenda Helldiver ATC. I didn't inflate my Kenda Hellkat AEC yet.  All three tires all have much more substantial sidewalls compared to Booster.

Buyer beware – this is a VERY LIGHT DUTY TIRE.  Booster TR tire doesn't look robust enough even for light road riding at full inflation... forget trails.  The first twig or rock will take it out.

Hopefully Kenda will make right.  I intend to post back.
