Kenda American Airless 26 x 2.125
Hi, just got a set of these Kenda airless inserts recently,
in the 26 x 2.125 size. The inserts are a grayish, proprietary urethane compound.
You will receive exactly enough of the material
to fit a tire of the 26 x 2.125 (ISO 57-559) width range.
Hopefully in the future they'll do production with dedicated molds, for the larger inserts.
These 26 x 2.125 inserts fit optimally (with less-or-no slack or kinks), if the tire's inner surface distance bead-to-bead 'circumference' (i.e. unfolded or 'opened' distance) is between 125mm and 130mm.
Especially if fitting tires at the lower end of this range I recommend to have 2 or 3 *Downhill Tire Levers*
to make the task easier and safer.
Safety goggles and safety gloves are also recommended for the task.
* the Kenda Kwest 26 x 1.95, which has a slick road tread, and bead-to-bead tubular inner circumference of 130mm.
* the Serfas Drifter 26 x 2.0, which has an inverted semi-slick tread for both good rolling and traction when needed. The Drifter 2.0 has an inner surface bead-to-bead distance of 125mm. You will need 2 or 3 *Downhill Tire Lever* tools to install this tire with the inserts.
The Kenda American Airless inserts are a bit heavier than pneumatic tires, but they roll very well for heavier riders such as myself (@ 230-250lbs).
