If the name is any hint, the Rush was designed with one goal in mind: Speed.
It’s Kenda’s fastest-rolling XC tire yet.
With a low-profile, high void tread pattern, the Rush grips where it counts and rolls smoothly on hard surfaces. Comes with a dual layer compound specifically developed for the Rush.
– Fast! Kenda’s lowest rolling resistance MTB tire ever. The tread is designed to smoothly and efficiently climb, and hold speed in the descents.
– Extremely light – The Rush is one of the lightest XC tires on the market.
– Grip Where It Counts – Tread pattern is low profile and high void, with knobs that bite in when the trail is loose, and roll smoothly on hard surfaces.
– Sidewall Reinforcements – 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.
TUBELESS AND TOUGH Kenda Sidewall Casing Technology (SCT) is the modification of existing Kenda tire construction methods.
By adding an additional sheet of Nylon fabric across the sidewall of the tire, from bead up to tread block, it results in the optimization of the tire construction for fluid based tubeless conversion systems.
Additionally, the SCT construction increases the structural strength of sidewalls; bolstering resistance to slices and abrasions, helping reduce the chance of catastrophic damage that fluid sealants cannot seal.
