Kenda ibex

Hi all

I just bought one of these to try, feels super soft with good sidewall

 

Wondering if anyone else has used these and what thoughts you may have??

 

Cheers

So how's it handling the rocky /Hard terrain wear wise ?

They are a good thing when used in the right terrain. Minimum wheel spin, low speed extreme type terrain though, definitely not a dargo tyre as shown

Have no idea about that tyre but definetly not the terrain for an extreme enduro classed tyre. What tracks you hitting Mick??? Its been over a year since I've been to Bright!

Shagged by days end. Good grip just don’t last. Dead in one ride
Cheers for the feedback.
One day is terrible. Wrong rear tyre choice for the bright area on a big bore. I like dunlops as they last alot better up there and i can get 2 weeks out of them in summer and the grip is good.They wear but don't chuck right out and effect the carcasses integrity. 952 is the best lasting then mx51,mx52 or now it's mx53 which i've never used but i presume they will last. If it rains, a bit of caution is needed until it drys out.
Ibex get good feedback for slower gnarlier style riding with limited wheelspin.I've never used one as i like to usually run tubliss and the kenda ibex apparently is a bit soft in the carcass and is puncture prone with tubliss like the starcross 5 can be.

What was your thoughts on this tyre Britto ?

Mate, I never got round to putting it on due to the leg injury, and now no riding for a while so it’s just sitting in the garage for now.

Used one up at tenterfield hard enduro, it was near on perfect for that, pretty good wear too for 6 hours ride time. I think it’s only downfall would maybe be wet red clay but I haven’t tried it in that yet. Will be my go to tyre for the extreme stuff, if we get to ride again.034a2692fb52de8a309a2cd4aa05fda6.jpg

@Bicey are the knobs as tall as the shinko 525?

I’m pretty sure they are, but wider spacing between knobs so better in the looser stuff than the shinko

@Gypsy501 haha I just pictured the scene in castaway with Tom Hanks where he's isolated, stranded on an island but yet talks to his new friend the white leather volleyball...

I'm finding the shinko does get loose on the rear on the shalley terrain.

That’s wearing really well Bicey for such a soft compound rubber- and Tenterfield was pretty rocky aswell- I’m interested in trying one.

 

Thanks for your feed back
