The Advanced Gravity Casing (AGC) is latest innovation for professional downhill riders. The series tires' construction are jointly developed and tested by professional teams in consideration of various user experiences. A strip of Kenda Vector Shield (KVS), a lightweight woven aramid material, is built in under the tread area and along the sidewalls to protect the tire from cuts and punctures. KVS offers nearly three times more cut resistance than standard protective materials. A 20 mm apex along the bead prevents pinch flats and burping. AGC is our lightest and strongest gravity casing up to date.
