Description Technical Specs
 
The Hellkat is an all-new gravity tire, developed with UR Team pro riders. An optimized tread design lets you rip across a wide range of conditions, never letting you down through sharp turns or aggressive braking. Equipped with Advanced Gravity Casing, the Hellkat is unimpressed by any sharp object you may encounter on your ride. Don’t be just fast - be fast as hell!
  • Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) - 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.
  • Versatile - Tread design is optimized for a wide range of conditions balancing traction, handling and rolling speed.
  • Tubeless ready – Saves weight and provides a better rolling performance and more controlled handling. Riding tubeless also reduces the chance of flats.


RSR DUAL LAYER (RSRDL)

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.

EN-DTC (EN-DTC)

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.

AGC (AGC)

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.

ATC (ATC)

Optimized for enduro and 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 tighter 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.

The Hellkat rips in all conditions. Riding in Utah, it's dry and loose 90% of the summer, but this tire gives me confidence corner just as fast as tacky conditions. It's also very durable and holds up in park and riding nearly every day.

27.5x2.4 front tire June 18, 2018
Reviewer: Travis Epperson from Prescott, AZ United States  
Have this tire on the front wheel of my Pivot Mach 6.  Two enduros later I can say that this tire is all it claims to be.  Extremely predictable.  Absorbs impacts well.  Very difficult to get to slide out, even on our dry Arizona DG.  Loving this tire and can't wait to try it in the 2.6 form!
