Kenda Tire Sweeps Marathon Nationals
In a marathon race every millisecond counts, so tire choice was of the utmost importance for our athletes. In order to take the win they needed a tire that would deliver on speed, weight, and survivability. Both McElveen and Beisel raced on Kenda Sabers tires with Orange Seal sealant for the win. “The Sabers are the perfect weapon on race day; a great combination of speed, traction, and light weight” said McElveen. “Combining the Saber with Orange Seal sealant was the perfect combination for the grueling 50 mile marathon race over the toughest mountain bike terrain in Arkansas.”
Beisel competed on the new 29×2.60 size of the Saber and commented that the “increased volume offered additional traction and flotation over the loose terrain. It was perfect“.
