Details

    The Kenda Equilibrium is a DOT compliant hybrid tire that combines the best of a trials tire and the best of a motocross tire for traction and handling that neither alone can match. And as far as hybrid tires go, the Equilibrium is one of our best sellers.

    Because of the wide and heavily lugged center, the Equilibrium has the grip of a trials tire. But because the aggressive side lugs angle outwards like a motocross tire, the Equilibrium corners better than any traditional trials tire.

    Kenda throws in a little extra too with braking scoops running down the center tread path and a super sticky, super soft rubber compound that keeps everything planted. Because all of this is in one tire, riders love the Equilibrium for its ability to handle most types of terrain.

    Specs:
  • Hybrid design combines trials and motocross tire traits
  • Sticky race compound grips in the wet and dry
  • Trials style center tread for best possible traction
  • Motocross-style shoulder knobs for aggressive cornering
  • Braking scoops in center tread provide stopping power a trials tire can't
  • DOT compliant.

crazy soft tire
I got this tire for a trip in some really rocky terrain, it is very soft and I ran it about 12psi and it gripped the rocks like I was on the road. it wasn't really happy with mud but got through just fine. I put around 150 miles on this trip and can see wear but I didn't buy it for it to last forever

Kenda cross over tire
I bought this tire on sale to put on my KTM 350. I found it good in sand, rocks, slippery ground. But on your standard track or dirt, the narrow blocks tended to fill in and lose traction. I also didn't like the loss of the side knobs. Went back to a more standard tire.

Great single track tires
We have been riding every weekend until 2nd week of January due to deep snow had to take a break.
I got 500 miles pure dirt, there's some tread left, but not much bite.
Equilibrium are soft, perfect for low speed technical, but squirly if you're screaming a double track.
Had them on a '18 Husqvarna TE250i.

like a tractor
This tire is awesome once you get use to it. I'm use to riding a gear or two higher than I should and it's normally not an issue on a knobby where they spin a bit more going up a hill. The tire stuck like glue so I had to start riding in the right gear to keep the bike from stalling or bogging down to get up a hill climb. These even work fairly well in sand.

Easy to install. Great traction. And over all this thing just hooks up in all conditions. I’ll never use another tire.
I have a place near my house mostly some deer triails I’ve tryed to make a loop with. Tryed for 6 years and couldn’t make it up the last part of the hill on various tires. Installed the equilibrium and third try made my loop and been riding it ever since. Don’t hesitate to buy this tire the best one I’ve ever used for trail riding.

Awesome tire but not for an agressive rider
This tire has incredible straight line drive and traction galore but with that said once the knobs get worn down a little the braking suffers quite a bit. Also this tire tends to fold over if run at too low of a pressure. If you use this like a trials tire as it is meant to be used than you will be pleased, but this is not a knobby. This is not a tire for an aggressive rider but if you want to experiment then I recommend this. (2001 KLX300R)

I read somewhere that as of Jan. 2016 this tire was going to be DOT approved but the last one I got from RM was not. Do you have any that are DOT approved? the listing still does not say that...thanks
John C on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All the equilibrium tires we have are the older non DOT tires. They do make a version that is DOT approved but we don't carry it at this time.
What front tire is a good compliment to the Equilibrium for tight rocky root covered and muddy trails?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Dunlop AT81
Is the DOT version shipping now?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this tire is available now.
Can u send to the UK?
kyle h on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I checked into this and unfortunately we cannot ship this item internationally. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Will this tire work with the tublis system?
Nolan J on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the tire works great with the tublis system. I ran this setup for a whole season at nearly 0psi and recieved UNBELIEVABLE traction. Don't take my word for it. Try it yourself.
Does this tire last long?
Gunnar v on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely! I've got 2 seasons on it and still hooks up great. Only thing is it's not good in real muddy conditions but if it's medium to dry it's amazing. I've run trials tires before and this tire is almost as good on rocks and dry as a trials tire but better in that it will still work great in intermediate conditions.
If you are using this Kenda, what are you using in the front? I am riding an XR400. Mostly single track. Thanks.
STEVE H on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have a Dunlop geomax at 81 on the front and the Kenda on the rear of my 08 KTM 300 xcw. I ride single track hills roots and rocks. I run heavy duty tubes and 8 to 10 psi in the kenda. It really smooths out the first part of rear travel. It has great traction in dry hard pack and rocks. Not as much side bite as a knobby and not great in the soft. It does wear if you spin a lot. Should work well with the power of your 400.
How does this tire fair in the mud and hill climbs?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great tire on hills with wet rocks, slimey mud, roots, wet grass, and about anything it goes over.
It says that this tire doesn't fit my 01 Ktm 200 exc. Is this true?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It"s not listed as the stock size. The equilibrium only comes in a 4.50x18. My bike normally runs a 100/100x18 or about 4.00. It fits my CRF250X no problem. It all depends if there is enough clearance for a wider tire but I have known guys with a 200 run the tire. They are tight but fit
What size bib-mousse would be compatible with this tire in the 4.50x18 version?

BEST ANSWER: There is 25.4 mm in 1 inch so 4.5 inches = 114.3mm. That's right inbetween the 120 and 110 so I'd go with the M14,
