The Nevegal is the most popular tire from the Tomac Signature Series. It has tall ramped knobs designed to penetrate and hold on hardpacked to loose terrain, while keeping rolling resistance to a minimum. The Nevegal is a perennial favorite due to it's solid performance characteristics, multiple size options and rubber compounds, as well as it's economical price.
Do 27.5 and 29r wheels seem like a fad to you? Are you convinced 28.25 is secretly being developed as the true heir to the optimal wheel size throne so you've decided to wait for that? If the only upgrade you're interested in involves changing from a 26 inch tube with a hole in it, to a 26 inch tube that doesn't have a hole in it, we've got you covered. 26 inch is alive and well! Take a look at our large selection of competitively priced 26 inch tubes here.
I have been riding Fountainhead, Meadowood and Wake-field with these for the past 3 years. No complaints. They are my go to tires when in need of replacements. They climb well, descend well and have great traction all around.
I read other reviews on the tire and decided to give it a try. It's not expensive but I read good reviews on different sites, so I decided to give it a try. I ride Northern CA trails and fall, winter, spring these tires ROCK! If you're looking for a tire to grip in the mud and soft pack going into summertime then this is it. I put it on the back but it could be used as a front tire also. I'm going to install another Maxxis I have for summertime, but the Nevegal is going right back on when fall hits.
This tire brought in the all mountain aggressive tire. But high rolling resistance and sometimes sketchy corner and blocks make it not the best.
Have been running the Nevegal folding tire for the front of my bike for a long time and has great grip and tread life!
Picked up the Stick-E model. It's a great tire large volume but couldn't set it up tubeless. I'll move it to my son's HT with tubes :-)
I'm riding on a Trek Fuel EX 8 with a WTB Velociraptor on the front and the Kenda Nevegal on the rear. I ride in San Diego, CA and most trails around here are hard pack clay with a fone dust on top and very rocky. These tire have a great grip but also a tight enough pattern that there isn't a lot of roll resistance. They corner great. One problem I have with them however is that I tend to tear the nobbies off. I'm a big dude, about 240-250 lbs, and the high speed rocky descents tear the nobbies off of the sides after a while. I usually ride between 40 - 60 mi a weekend and I can usually get close to two full seasons out of one tire before I have to replace them.
I've been riding this tire on my rear wheel for a few months now. Just noticed there are several side lugs in varying stages of separation from the casing. One is completely missing. There is a lot of rocky lava terrain around where I live and have been riding but I've not had this happen to a tire in 20 years... ironically the last time Johnny T's signature was on my tire... Tiogas... Guess I'll have to go back to my tried and true Continentals. These are good tires as far as traction goes, but quality seems suspect and doesn't inspire confidence.
I've had this tire for a couple months but just noticed a few of the side lugs are in varying stages of separation from the casing... One is completely gone. Doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me. I think I'll go back to my Continentals.
This tire is a really great tire, and I have had one for many many years. So I decided to get the DTC 26x2.35 for my brother. It still looks great and feels the same, but it does not look like the normal tire that it displays. It could be an older picture, and maybe Kenda updated their side wall stuff...but overall great tire for the price!
Great all around tires, picked up a DTC for my rear and a sticky for my front, works great on and off the trail
I have this in 2.35 Stick-E, but don't find to be that sticky. Like others have said they are also on the heavy side. On the hardpack this tire doesn't grip the best, but when the ground is a bit soft in the early spring or after a decent rain they dig in quite well. Definitely a good tire for going downhill on softer trails, but a bit to much for peddly trails or serious hardpack.
Never had any great luck with these tires. I am always finding holes in the side walls (large holes) long before the tread wears out.
Pros: Traction, durability, flatprotection. Cons: Heavy and slow These tires have held up exceptionally well with very minimal wear and they stick to anything, the only down side is they are by far the slowest tires in my line up. I read a German magazine review tested the rolling resistance of these compared to others and they did even fit on that graph because resistance was so high. So overall a great tire if your pointing down alot, or if you want something really durable and with a lot of traction. If you want something fast though I would look somewhere else.
Like the width of the 2.35, great in varying conditions. The tread is spread out evenly and not too cluttered when you wanna open up and roll fast!
Got this tire in the 2.35 DTC version on the front of my Blur. Not the lightest or most well rolling tire but it lasts and handles predictably. Definitely confidence inspiring for a beginner rider or aggressive rider.
I mounted these on my Mavic UST wheels with NO SEALANT. I know it's crazy, but I've never had flat. These things hook up great on the hard pack red dirt of Oklahoma, and grip like crazy on everything I've ridden them on. My go-to tire, especially for the front.
These tires are a legend. I put in a big order at Pricepoint for everyone in my group and we all put them on at the same time. A few people had some issues with sidewalls as they maybe a bit thin, but that's what keeps them light. When it gets really rough and rocky I tend to have to pump the tires to 36psi to avoid pinch flats, which is higher than I like (I weigh 170 pounds) which is why I rate 4 instead of 5 stars.
I've used this as my front tire for years, replacing them every season. The 2.35 for front provides great traction and stopping power. I use a smaller version for the rear. Highly recommend them at this price.
the name says it all. Stick-E This is the only tire I ride on my AM bike. provides the traction I need.
Kenda Nevegals are the best tires I've used in the dry, loose South Texas terrain. They provide the best grip under these conditions and still allow you to maintain good speed.
Typically I run 2 of these (2.1 Stick-E Rear, 2.35 DTC Front) for my everyday rides, which are typically on rocky, bumpy terrain. Definitely not the fastest rollers, nor the lightest, but they last long and are solid AM/trail performers. Recommended.
I've worn down a few of these since they came out ~ 2003. I just don't like them. Way too much roiling resistance to performance ration
I was really happy with this tire tell first the rear tire ripped down the center than 4 weeks later the front ripped down the center. There is a flaw were the tire fails down the center seam.
I run these on my AM rig in the 26x2.3 size DTC compound and I really like them. They're not the lightest things out there but I find that in the hardpack and rocky terrain I ride in, these are very durable (I got 700 miles out of my last rear tire...front is still going strong). They provide predictable grip and traction, and corner well. In an all mountain tire, I look for grip and durability and these provide a high amount of both. These tires are also very nicely priced. If you're looking for a lightweight, fast rolling tire, these probably aren't it. but if grip and durability are what you're looking for then give these a shot.
I bought these tires because my Specialized Fast Traks, as good as they have been, have zero traction on any trail out here in the High Desert, CA. There is too much loose sand and shifty rocks. These Nevegals are the answer! I put a 2.1 in the rear and a 2.35 up front which fits fine between my fox float 32.
My dad bought these tires for his Trek fuel Ex 6. His stock tires were cracking and had really hard treads, so he had little traction on the trails. These tires have softer treads and are lasting waaaay longer than his stock ones. These tires kick so much dirt up though. That's why I avoid riding behind him lol. Anyways he can ride anywhere and has the 2.35 (f) and 2.10 (r). He rarely slips or falls with these tires. The trick to these tires is to run them 30 psi in the front and 35-40 psi in the rear. He says its a great tire.
Works awesome on the downhill trails in Big Bear. No flats, I run 21 inch motorcycle tubes and 27 lbs of air..I weigh 225!
These are my fav's. Great for many conditions.
Great Tire! Good Price and Fast Shipping... Thanks!
