We are happy to announce we managed to make a new agreemant with a big new sponsor which is going to help us achieve new goals in the 2016 season. Kenda Tires has come along and offered cooperation in order to help SloEnduro grow.
Kenda was founded in 1962 and is one of the biggest tire manufactures in the world. For more than 50 years, Kenda has built the reputation of developing and producing high qualitiy tires with superiority, durability and performance characteristics for affordable prices. With factories spread across the heart of global bicycle production, Kenda has a facility that can service nearly every customer – no matter if you ride off- or on-road.
So we are proud to welcome a new excellent partner in our family, one that will play a big role in achieving new goals and reaching new success. In world of mountain biking Kenda is a well known brand. Recently it’s becoming more and more popular in enduro and downhill world as well. Kenda is proud that some of their products will be distributed among the riders at SloEnduro races which will bring their quality directly to the end consumers. What is great needs to be shared…
In gravity side of mountainbiking Kenda bets it all on their Honey Badger DH Pro model. In the “KSCT” and “LGC” protection version with less than 1000g of weight it is very appropriate for enduro racing. Honey Badger DH Pro Profile will do well in all conditions whether it is wet or dry underneath your bike. It is equiped with tri-bite knobs running down the center for fast rolling speed and sipped to open up under heavy braking loads. Completely redesigned side knobs claw into the ground and never let go. A protective grid across the sidewall reduces the chance of sidewall slashes and punctures. Several constructions offered for every rider. For those willing to experiment a bit more, Kenda offers a wide range of different profiles, different casings and dimensions of their tires. So everybody should be able to find something for any sort of conditions out there.
In cooperation with Kenda we will have a Kenda SuperStage prepared at all six SloEnduro races in this season. It is meant to be the stage which is most special. Sometimes it’s going to be the longest stage, sometimes the hardest. Maybe even the most physical or the most beautiful stage. Briefly, it should be the stage that riders will most likely remember best. Fastest rider on it will be rewarded with a prize, of course, provided by Kenda. During the season we will make a calculation of all Kenda SuperStage times and the rider with the best time at the end of the season will again be rewarded at the final ceremony.
