Slant 6 Review
I finally got a chance to test out the Kenda Slant 6 2.2's yesterday at Maybury. Off the bike the wheels felt heavier than the Karmas I had used last season. On the trail I haven't noticed the weight difference but it was only my 2nd trail ride of the season. Cornering stability felt good in hard pack and loose terrain. Straight line performance was good too and overall they seem like a good tire. One thing I did notice is the sidewall seems to keep it's shape better then my previous tires when aggressively attacking corners, which is a good thing. As my conditioning increases I'll have a better idea of how these tires will perform under hard riding for extended periods.
