Kenda KARVS 700/25

Postby Gordonhooker » Fri May 23, 2014 11:40 am

When I purchased my Avanti Solo 2012 model it had Kenda KARVS 700/25 tyres on it and I was thinking of replacing the tyres on Harrier with them when my coastie rear wheel arrives from coasties.com. Trouble is I can't seem to find any for sale locally. The reason I would like them is because I like the look of the tyre and they are wearing really well on the Solo. If not the KARVS something that looks similar would do I just don't like the look of the others.

Off for a lunch time ride.

They might be a an Avanti OEM only tyre; that is they were never sold/distributed to the public via retail and only came on new, complete bikes.

Stop worrying about form so much. Function counts for something too y'know. :P

A mate is running Kenda Criterium endruance (or something like that) and loves them, apparently very grippy but long lasting as well. He's a die hard fixed gear rider who could get through a Maxxis Refuse in a fortnight, so they must be seriously tough.
