The Kenda Hellkat and Helldiver tires are used by Mick and Tracey Hannah and the Polygon UR team. The DH versions of the tires feature Kenda’s Advanced Gravity Casing which is basically a dual-layer rubber with rigid rubber insert on top of the bead of the tire to help prevent pinch flats and burping. Kenda's Vector Shield protects the sidewalls against tears and the Iron Cloak Belt adds extra puncture protection. The RSR (Race Stick-e Rubber) compounds used are slow- and soft-rebounding for maximum grip and performance. 2.6-inch wide versions of these tires will be available soon.

Kenda’s new Advanced Trail Casing is optimized for enduro and trail riding, dropping weight over the Advanced Gravity Casing. The tires use a dual compound tread with 62a durometer rubber down the middle and 55a rubber on the side knobs. Paired with K-Armor instead of Iron Cloak, puncture resistance is maximized while weight is shed.
