Kenda Bear Claw Tires

The Three Bear Claws

Kenda has a lineup of tires called Bear Claw, which include the Bear Claw K299, Bear Claw EVO and Bear Claw HTR. The original Bear Claw is made as a do-it-all tire for a wide array of conditions, the EVO is a lighter-weight Bear Claw, and the HTR is an updated version of the original Bear Claw.

Bear Claw K299

The original packs a semi-aggressive tread that is deeply grooved for self-cleaning, so it is a top pick for those who ride in mud and snow.

It has a combination of straight and angled tread bars. The outside sidewall knobs help provide additional traction when needed. The 6-ply rating construction and special tire compound is used for extended tread life and improved resistance to punctures.

Here’s an overview of the Bear Claw Lineup:

Bear Claw EVO

The Bear Claw Evo weighs less than the original K299 and has large center knobs for improved straight-line and braking traction.
