Someone asked me recently if I use the Dred Tread Signature tires I designed and I saw something on the internet saying that I don't. It is important for everyone to know that I love the Dred Treads and I recommend them for anyone who wants a multi-use tire that is primarily designed for endurance and durability but also one that is fast rolling. It is true that I don't use them all the time, because I choose tires to race based on the trail conditions. Sometimes they are right and sometimes not. Sometimes I want something super lightweight. Depends....and because Kenda has such an excellent variety, and because they take such good care of me, I have choices. The Dred Treads were designed for people that want to pick one tire that is good for a lot of things, and may not have the option to buy a bunch of different kinds for each trail condition. My wife loves the Dreds and so do a lot of other people that I meet that tell me how it is the best tire they ever tried. The folks up in the north east like it because it's good in the mud.
So, beware of what you read on the internet and try them out for yourself. Send me a note and let me know what you think.

Tinker is your typical cross country racer - skinny, fit and fast. He wanted to build a tire that was a racer’s dream, but felt equally at home in an all day epic. From this criteria the Dred Tread was born. Thanks to the low profile knobs, it’s a fast rolling tire. Tinker designed it using our Dual Tread Compound to provide needed cornering grip with the added benefit of longer wear in the tire’s center and low rolling resistance. Each knob on the tire accomplishes a specific duty and we added Tinker’s initials on the side knobs for that personal touch.
