The Karma Pro is a long time fan favorite. Small, square, low profile knobs accentuate the tread pattern and provide lots of grip, not just for technical world cup tracks. If you're a weekend racer or love technical cross-country rides and don't shy away from wet conditions either, the Karma will keep you on track.
- Flat resistant: Large air casing for plenty of comfort and float
- Universal grip: Low profile square knobs provide traction in almost every condition on a wide range of trail surfaces
- Select models are tubeless ready: Saves weight and provides a better rolling performance. Riding tubeless also means riding flat free.
- Front and rear application, best when used as a set
- Folding Bead

Dual Tread Compound (DTC):
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.
L3R Pro (L3RP):
L3R Pro is Kenda’s most versatile compound. L3R Pro is found on anything from road racing to cross country (XC) mountain bike tires. At 60sA, the L3R Pro is a fast and solid performer. The benefits are light-weight, fast rolling and increased tread life.
KENDA SCT (KSCT):
KENDA SCT is the modification of existing Kenda tire technologies making them now compatible with fluid based tubeless conversion systems.
Tubeless-ready tires are compatible with both tubeless-ready and standard rims. When the tire is mounted on a tubeless-ready rim with special tubeless rim tape, valve, and sealant, the tire and rim form an airtight chamber that no longer requires a tube. This lets you run lower tire pressure with less fear of pinch flats and without the added weight of a tube. Lower tire pressure has many benefits, including greater traction and lower rolling resistance over rough surfaces. The tire can also be used with a tube if you mount it on a standard, non-tubeless-ready rim.
