Aaron talks about his involvement in the development process of the new Kenda Pinner and testing at Big Bear, California.

The Pinner is Kenda’s new dry condition gravity tire.  Exclusively developed with Aaron Gwin, for World Cup racing and designed to hold its own against the toughest competitors.  The Pinner shines with predictable cornering and high puncture protection.  Available with AGC (Gravity) or ATC (Trail) casings, the Pinner is an excellent choice for downhill racing or aggressive trail riding.

Excellent predictability – A consistent contact patch when the bike is leaned over creates a super predictable feel – no sudden washouts!

Optimized for hard pack – The tread pattern is designed to work best on hard pack, rock/rooty and loose over hard conditions.

Best-in-class puncture protection – 40% higher puncture protection than comparable DH tires.

Fast rolling – 16% less rolling resistance then Hellkat.

Lightweight – Unique single ply construction with (KVS) shielding delivers a minimum of 10% weight reduction over comparble DH tires, which equals faster acceleration.

Availble now in the following specs:

29×2.4 AGC (gravity) | 27.5×2.4 AGC (gravity)
29×2.4 ATC (trail) | – 27.5×2.4 ATC (trail)

Expansion sizes coming Fall of 2020.
