The Teravail Kennebec is largely telling of the new trends in mountain biking. Gone are the single purpose tires that are light, fast, aggressive, ordurable. The new breed of tires is gladly serving multiple masters with little complaints. The Kennebec is made for the rides that do not always go as planned. Once the trail goes from smooth to jarring, loose rocks, roots, and any other unknown, the Kennebec shines. The benefits of plus size tires on 27.5 rims are vast. The large volume gives excellent traction and the ability to fine tune PSI depending on the ride. Like all Teravail tires, the Kennebec is tubeless ready.
