NEW! Kenda Big Block tires!

Kenda has just sent us some pre-release 12" tires to test, and on the surface they look great! We'll keep you posted with some real world road tests. Perfect dual sport fitment for the small bore scene. They'll be available and in stock in December, though I have a feeling MNNTHBX will be giving away a free set sometime prior....


Continually innovating USA made product for the Z125.

Whoa! Those are going to look tough! I'm guessing we don't want to know how much they weigh? It hardly matters, if you need the grip you need the grip.

Dropped a gear... ...still here

Definitely my next tires.
I never liked the look of the Maxxis knobby tires for some reason
My Kenda K761's are not showing any wear yet so it might be a while.
Then again, They look so good they might be worth the Selfies alone

Any updates on these? Are they about neck and neck with the Maxxis? As for just looks I am digging the Big Blocks. Trying to decide on which set to get in and mounted so I am ready for the Creek Bottom Classic @ The Barber Small Bore

I'm also interested in hearing more about these as they look like they would be great to take the Z off-roading with...

Just had mine mounted today, flurries off an on so only once around the block. Seems like they fight me a little bit in slow turns but once I get moving I don't notice much difference on the road. I'm a little more timid leaning, but I don't think I ever get near the limits anyway. Have to get them offroad soon.

Those will look great on my Kymco Spade. Better suited to it than the Z

Those look tough mounted! I really dig the pink/purple accents on your bike as well Kev.

Agreed they fit the visual of the Spade better, but the Z can be whatever it wants to be. ;]
