Drawing on the natural design of the hooked barbs of the cholla cactus, we designed a tread pattern with hooks and barbs that will dig into the ground for maximum traction. Need a tire for when conditions get slick and slippery? The Cholla has got your back.
- The Cholla’s unique tread design generates plenty of grip.
- Tubeless ready – Saves weight and provides a better rolling performance. Riding tubeless also means riding flat free.
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.
SEALANT COMPATIBLE (SCT)
Sealant Compatible (SCT) tires can be considered a cross of a tube type and UST type tire. When used with a liquid sealant, SCT tires form an air tight seal, similar to the UST tire, but can be used on almost all bicycle rims. SCT tires have an additional layer of material built into the casing of the tire that allows it to be compatible with the various chemicals in liquid sealants; however this material is thinner and lighter than its UST counterpart. The benefits of SCT tires, when used with sealant, allows the rider to use lower air pressures as well as take full advantage of the liquid sealant compound when it comes to sealing most punctures or cuts in a tire.
