The Pinner is Kenda’s all new dry condition gravity tire. Developed with Aaron Gwin, the Pinner is for World Cup tracks like Leogang and Lenzerheide and holds its own against the toughest competitors. The Pinner shines with excellent cornering predictability and particularly high puncture protection. Available with AGC or ATC casing, the Pinner is an excellent choice for both gravity racers and trail riders.

Tire tech and compound is something that Kenda has been secretly working on across all their tires. The Pinner uses a dual layer construction, with a firmer rubber serving as the base and supporting the knobs, and a soft compound laid on top to maximize grip. The ATC version is a dual tread construction: a soft shoulder and firmer center tread provides more grip through corners and higher speeds.

“The Pinner is made to be stable, confident and planted over hardpack, rocks, and roots.”


  • Excellent predictability – A consistent contact patch when the bike is leaned over creates a super predictable feel – no sudden wash-outs!
  • Optimized for hard pack – The tread pattern is to work best on hard pack, rocky/rooty and loose over hard conditions.
  • Best-in-class puncture protection – 40% higher puncture protection than the current leading tire.

  • Tubeless ready
