Kenda Big City Slick Wire Bead Bicycle Tire, Blackwall, 26 x 1.95″
The Kenda Big City Slick Wire Bead Bicycle tires offer increased speed and reduced rolling resistance for MTB and hybrid bikes–without sacrificing traction. Unlike a typical MTB knobby tire, the Big City Slick provides a smooth and consistent rolling surface that allows the tire to gain and maintain speed on paved and hard packed surfaces. Meanwhile the tire’s wider, 1.95-inch profile and directional grooves provide the traction demanded by all terrain riding. The grooves also effectively channel water to the outer edge of the tire so that you can maintain a grip on wet roads, through puddles, and on wet trails. The blackwall sides reduce the overall weight profile of the tire and the wire bead pattern increases the tire’s strength and durability. While not meant for serious off road riding, the Kenda Big City Slick Wire Bead Bicycle tires is a good choice for riders who want a smooth and fast experience on the road, but who also want to keep their MTB or hybrid trail ready.

Especially if youâre building a little commuter bike from an old mountain bike frame like I did, or if youâre just using them on any road oriented mountain bike. Anyways, these tires are smooth on the road and I get really good traction when turning as well. I put about 20…
Great street tires! I ordered 2 of these but for some reason only received 1 of them today. I put it on the bike this afternoon. I got them to replace some knobby mountain bike tires for street riding alone or while pulling my son in his trailer. I installed it on the front tire and took it for a short spin. I had read some other reviews that it really reduces drag and even just replacing 1 tire I could tell it was better! I can’t wait to get both tires on and take it for a spin!As far as installation…
