Kenda Kwick Tendril - Surprisingly good puncture protection


Recommended Posts

Last year I fitted Kenda Kwick Tendril 35x622 tires to my gravel bike. To be honest they were kind of my last choice from a very limited choice that were available from local bike stores.


I've now done over 5000km on them. They are still going strong. Not one puncture. I ride them on road, and on gravel roads, and on the pavement coming from home which has lots of glass on it.


Then this happened, which amazed me: On Sunday while riding 947 Cycle challenge, every now and again, I would hear a wheel speed tick. Was a little concerning, but I just kept on and had no problems. After a short ride this afternoon, I noticed this:






I think I must have picked this up in the start pen. It's incredible it did not cause a puncture.
