Got this sweet little package from the folks at Sheppard Industries today. Two new tyres featuring Kenda's SWS technology. Side Wall Shield (SWS) guards against sidewall cutting, and supports against pinch flatting. It achieves similar benefits to a heavier 2PLY tyre, with a fraction of the added weight. We will be testing these in an upcoming issue of Spoke and on the site. We have a 2.35 Nevegal and a 2.35 Small Block Eight.
We take the new Niner RLT 9 carbon gravel bike for a spin around beautiful Mackenzie Country, then home for a month to see how she goes..
