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.
