Kings KT966 are slightly more expensive but last longer too. Kendas are shite - period!

Maybe it takes a bit of skill.......

I've tried Kenda K 270 and I think I can make a better tire from a tree trunk with a swiss army knife. Might work fine as a non highway use tire but plain scary on tar. Also not worthwhile compared to the Kings KT966 pricewise.

I also had the 761 on a Freewind. Almost binned the bike on two occasions on good, wet tarmac twice during one ride, once on acceleration with definitely no oil / bitumen patches, manholes, road markings or whateverthefcuk can reduce traction. Now you probably tell me it's the incredible performance of that Freewind's mill ??? :biggrin:

I find the Kenda the best balance between offroad and tar there is.
A real 50/50 tyre.

Maybe I cant ride all that well on tar.

Liked to K270 too - only on the rear though.  Get a Kenda 280 - which is nice on the front.

King tyre is similar to K270 - harder and last longer - also a good tyre.  Had both on the KLR
