Prototype Tires from Kenda and Tioga

Two prototype tires we spotted at the Sea Otter.

This was the hot patch on the tires mounted to the prototype DH bike from Diamondback.

The Tioga that sported that hot patch looks like it takes some design cues from the company’s relatively new Psycho Genius tire.

The next generation of Eric Carter’s Excavator tire–aptly named the Nexcavator.

The open tread and agressive knobs looks like they should grip well in loose conditions and do a fair job shedding mud.
