A fast and lightweight gravity tire that was developed with Polygon-UR Team pros for DH and Enduro usage. Through the new RSR dual layer compound and low profile, siped tread design, the Helldiver shines with a perfect balance of traction and rolling resistance. Whenever you take your bike out on super dry, dusty, fast hardpack tracks, the Helldiver is your best choice. All the traction and grip you need for less rolling resistance and less weight. Innovative gravity casing - KVS and Iron Cloak help prevent cuts and punctures, and a 20mm apex reduces the chance of pinch flats or burping. RSR evolution - New RSR dual layer compound for better control and long tread life. Fast rolling - Low profile, siped knobs for a perfect balance between braking traction and rolling resistance. Tubeless ready – Saves weight and provides a better rolling performance. Riding tubeless also means riding flat free. TIRE TECHNOLOGY AGC (ADVANCED GRAVITY CASING)
The Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) is Kenda‘s latest innovation for gravity orientated riders. A strip of Kenda Vector Shield, a lightweight material of woven aramid, is built in under the tread area and along the sidewalls to protect from punctures and cuts. It 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 (ADVANCED ENDURO CASING) The new AEC casing 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, which saves weight, but guarantees the same high level of puncture and cut resistance. ATC (ADVANCED TRAIL CASING) Optimized for trail riding, the Advanced Trail Casing (ATC) uses a layer of SCT on the sidewalls and a K-Armor belt under the tread area. K-Armor allows for a t ighter weave and the use of less rubber, resulting in a lighter tire and a casing that is supple enough to allow the knobs to flex and form under load, yet still protects from pinch flats or casing tears. RSR DUAL LAYER (RSR)
Kenda developed a this compound for a new generation of gravity tires - 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.
Designed around the rigors of enduro racing. Featuring a lower rolling resistance value than previous dual tread compounds, tires with EN-DTC show less wear than other similar tires. 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.
