Honey Badger XC | K1127A

Honey Badger XC

MSRP: $64.95


Description Technical Specs
The Honey Badger XC is the lighter, faster version of the original. Designed for those who would rather wear spandex than baggies. The Tri-bite knobs have been resized and moved to maximize efficiency for those who love to climb, descend, and race through tight single track on a variety of terrain. The tire spacing of the knobs allow each knob to truly work for you while clearing mud and debris, while providing superior grip compared to the competitors.


The original dual tread rubber compound for Kenda. A hard long lasting and fast rolling rubber (60sA) comprises the center of the tread area, while a softer-tackier should rubber (50sA) completes this binary compound for the versatility of speed and grip off road. Found typically on cross country, all-mountain and cyclocross tires.


KENDA SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tire technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.

Bombproof and FAST April 5, 2019
Reviewer: Michael Potter from Henderson, NV United States  
I've been rolling these tires for XC training and XC racing for 3 seasons now. The majority of my riding is in dusty, dry, and rocky (volcanic rock) conditions in Southern Nevada. I have NEVER had a sidewall tear, nor a catastrophic failure. Plus I get over 100 hours on them before I need replacements (at least for my training tires). I'm a sole income provider for a family of 4, so this is a big plus for me!

As far as speed is concerned, they aren't the fastest tires out there, but not too far off and they are a great trade off between light and durable. Right in the sweet spot in my opinion. Grip is confidence inspiring and very predictable.

These are my go to XC tires and will be for a long time.

Fast & Confidence-inspiring April 3, 2018
Reviewer: Elisabeth from Philadelphia, PA United States  
Running the 27.5" 2.2, and I'm super impressed with the combo of a fast-rolling tire that hooks up just when you need it to. Super easy tubeless setup, great combo of speed & grip.
