Kennebec Tire

Off-Road

Some routes put you in rugged places—places where roots and rocks blanket the trail, loose switchbacks are commonplace, and wildlife-trodden paths make for a jarring, uneven ride. For savoring the type of terrain that holds surprises around every corner, we created the Kennebec.

Plus-sized tires on a smaller 27.5 diameter wheel have many benefits. The large volume 2.8” casing offers incredible traction in loose and rough conditions. The confidence inspiring width delivers climbing and descending prowess not found on standard width tires. The outer diameter is equal to a standard 29” tire which offers extra ground clearance, added stability, and greater angular momentum.

We designed the 2.6” Kennebec to offer the best balance of volume, weight, and traction. A slightly smaller casing than standard plus sized 29er tires reduces weight and rolling resistance while working on a wide range of rim widths. Riders still feel the benefits of increased traction and lower air pressure found in a larger volume casing.

How it Works

  • Center lugs are tall and broad with perpendicular siping to deliver maximum traction when accelerating and braking. 
  • Transition lugs are spaced out to shed dirt; siping provides additional grip in corners. 
  • Side lugs are staggered and feature parallel siping that grabs hold in corners.

The short and simple word on the Kennebec is that it’s a fast tire that leaves little to be desired in the grip department.
