Hellkat | K1201

MSRP: $79.95

Price with Selected Options: $79.95


Description Technical Specs
The Hellkat Pro is an all-condition enduro and gravity tire. An optimized tread design lets you rip across a wide range of conditions, never letting you down through sharp turns or aggressive braking. 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 along the bead reduces the chance of pinch flats or burping.
  • Advanced Enduro Casing (AEC) - Using the same 3 piece aramid inserts at the AGC casing, AEC omits the apex at the bead, for the same high level of puncture and cut resistance but without the added weight and a more supple feel.
  • Advanced Trail Casing (ATC) - Lighter and more supple than both gravity/enduro solutions. Features SCT fabric across the tire sidewalls and a sub-tread belt of K-Armor under the tread blocks. The K-Armor has a tighter weave, resulting in the use of less rubber during the construction process, yielding 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, punctures and cuts.
  • 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.

5 of 5 Love the Hellkats! September 27, 2022
Reviewer: Eric Porter from Utah  
These are my go-to tires when there is some moisture in the dirt. When the dirt is a little softer and the knobs are able to dig in, these are what you want. I use the AGC casing on my longer travel bikes which gives the tires and my rims more protection when running lower pressures, which also helps with traction and comfort. These are great for loam, Northwest type riding, rocks and roots, and generally anything where the tires can dig into the dirt. For dry hardback I prefer the Pinner's.

Reviewer: JOEY from New York  
I purchased the 29 2.4 AEC because I wanted the better compound for wet rocks and roots.  After multiple attempts I couldn't get the sidewalls to stop leaking.  I doubled the amount of sealant necessary and laid it on its side for days as per Kenda's instruction.  I then brought it to two separate bike shops that used different sealants to no avail.  It would lose 20 to 30 PSI over ten hours and was unrideable in the morning.  I sent a video, my original receipt, and photos to Kenda multiple times and have gotten no response hence my disappointed and anger for getting stiffed out of $80 dollars.  

In all honestly I am using the same tire in the ATC compound which works well but I still much rather have the better compound because its simply better for my riding conditions.  I am liking the tires so far and have used many Kenda tires in the past.  But after this latest experience I don't know if I will continue to do so.

5 of 5 Best Tire for Mt. biking “EVER” September 24, 2021
Reviewer: Ryan/Nicole Wilhelm from Canonsburg, PA United States  
Upon getting into E-Bike riding and Standard Mt. Bike riding, we were very uneducated about the proper tires needed for rough terrain Mt. Bike riding. Ever since we got on board with Kenda tires, they have always been so knowledgeable when it come to the proper tires needed for our life style. We do some pretty rough tracks and these tires have never let us down. They handle the worst conditions. Rock, roots, sharp objects, you name it. I was popping tires like crazy before I put the Hellkats in our bikes and I have never popped a tire since. This tire is made for the hard core rider!!
