235 Kenda’s latest off-road range of products is based on the concept of “less is more” while still providing the right tire for each application or terrain. As seen in the chart above, Kenda’s core off-road lineup consists of four main tires ranging from soft to hard-pack applications, as well as three specialty tires (Sand Mad, Parker DT and Equilibrium) for more niche applications. Most tires in the lineup are based on Kenda’s popular 4-ply rated lightweight casing. The exception would be the Parker DT, which upgrades to a 6-ply casing to get through the toughest dessert terrain without punctures. Tires developed for softer terrains incorporate a slow wearing rubber compound, taller knobs and significant spacing between knobs in order to dig deep and find firmer ground. The hard pack applications incorporate shorter knobs with less spacing to provide a more consistent contact patch and superior traction. A sticky compound comes on the Triple and is also incorporated into the dual-compund Washougal II to further increase your traction. An even softer compound is incorporated into the Equilibrium.
