The powersport tread for side-by-side vehicles (SSV) and buggies had already attracted the attention of visitors at the Bohnenkamp premiere of the Kenda Klever X/T at the Demopark in Eisenach. The coarse block profile is particularly striking: it offers a secure grip on a wide variety of surfaces and, thanks to its smooth running and low rolling resistance, ensures excellent ride comfort even at high speeds of up to 130 km/h. Motorsport enthusiasts and other users appreciate the comparatively low weight of the new tread. The Kenda Klever X/T is considered the lightest DOT-rated radial tyre on the market despite its eight fabric plies and a massive protector bead.
"With this tyre, we now also offer a suitable alternative for the 'large' sizes for SSVs and buggies, and there is huge interest in them. We have already had many discussions with interested customers in Eisenach", explains Timo Potratz, responsible for the small tyre and powersports segment at Bohnenkamp. Much about the tread is unusual. In addition to the striking design, the Kenda Klever X/T's heritage also stands out. From a technical perspective, it is based on treads for light trucks, a traditional division of the experienced manufacturer Kenda. According to Timo Potratz, the Kenda Klever X/T will find its place not only in powersports but also in commercial use on demanding stony slopes and in rough terrain. "With this tyre, adventures in the great outdoors as well as challenges in agricultural and forestry applications on difficult terrain are a real pleasure." If necessary, the Kenda Klever X/T can even be equipped with spikes for optimum grip on snow and ice.
