Karma 2
MSRP: $69.95

Price with Selected Options: $69.95


Description Technical Specs

Inspired by the aggressive nature of the original Karma, the Karma 2 comes with a completely redesigned tread pattern that still excels in muddy and loose conditions but offers faster rolling speed and an improved SCT casing.

  • Lots of Grip - High void tread pattern with knobs that are placed to penetrate in loose conditions, and bite on slippery surfaces.
  • Balance - Splits the middle between traction and rolling speed. The Karma 2 provides the grip needed in slippery cross country rides and the grip required for exciting single track.
  • Sidewall Reinforcements - The SCT version is built with a stable, yet supple fabric weave in the sidewalls that offers pinch protection, lateral stiffness, cut resistance and fully sealed tubeless interface.
  • Tubeless ready

5 of 5 Stoked on these for sure! May 20, 2022
Reviewer: Kyle McFarland from Herriman, UT United States  
I've paired the new Karma2 in 2.4 SCT as a front tire with the Saber in the rear. The new Karma2 is a phenomenal, and FAST tire for racing xc. If you're racing xc or like to pedal fast in the dirt/rock these things belong in the quiver.

5 of 5 Perfect XC casing! May 13, 2022
Reviewer: Brian R. Hamilton from Carson City, NV United States  
Good thing Kenda send a nice Sea Otter special coupon or I probably would have never tried these tires.  Really wanted to try the Booster Pro but it is out of stock.  The Karma 2 is exactly as described.  I'm finding it to be very good in small loose over hardpack and, like most tires, great in hero dirt.  It's an XC tire, so don't expect stupid traction.  The casing (I tried TR version) rides nice and feels fast.  The sidewalls didn't leak at all and the rubber compound feels tough and grippy.  Time will tell if they hold up to sharper rocks and other stuff they weren't really meant for.  Can't wait to give Regolith and Booster a try.  Send me another coupon Kenda!

5 of 5 Great XC/Down Country Tire! April 4, 2022
Reviewer: TJ Jones from Acworth, GA United States  
I ran Ron 2.25 for the past 2 years racing.  These are similar but there are definitely a few advantages.  1. The SCT casing is considerably more durable.  Already I have hit a few rock gardens that I normally would avoid on XC tires as they have put a few of them to the grave early.  Secondly, rolling resistance feels very close to the Rons at lower pressures with a Rimpact Insert. It's very noticeable how efficient these are, especially compared to Maxxis Icons, Ardent Race, etc.  Weight wise, they are just a bit heavier than the Ron in Snake Skin casing, however the small penalty is justifiable considering their durability.  Normally in the past I have trained on a second set of wheels with a heavier tire to save the Rons for race days.  After my first 6 rides on them, I am going to keep them on through season including training to see how many miles I can get out of the tread or to see what it will take to compromise the casing.
