Kenda Returns for Thirteenth Year as Official Tire of Tennessee Knockout – The most popular tire among TKO racers

Kenda Tires will be presenting sponsor and the official tire of the Red Bull Tennessee Knockout for 2023. This makes thirteen years as a TKO partner. Kenda has been the most popular tire brand at the TKO for several years, and over 30 percent of the racers in 2022 raced on Kenda tires.

“Kenda has been a partner with the Tennessee Knockout since the first event in 2011 and we are proud to be the most popular tire choice among the racers,” said Dave Komoroski, Director of Powersports at Kenda. “We have developed great tires and increased our market share over the years. And we are happy to again have some of our Ohio-based engineers competing in the event to further improve Kenda tires.”

The 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout will take place at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee, on August 18-20, 2023. The TKO serves as the AMA Grand Championship for Extreme Off-Road and will again attract some of the top Hard Enduro racers from around the world.

Kenda Returns as Official Tire of Tennessee Knockout; The most popular tire among TKO racers

Kenda tires will return as the presenting sponsor and official tire of the Red Bull Tennessee Knockout for 2022. Forty-seven percent of the racers competed on Kenda tires at the 2021 TKO event, making it the most popular tire brand by a large margin.

“Kenda has been a partner with the Tennessee Knockout since the first event in 2011 and as the event grows, our market share in extreme enduro grows with it,” said Dave Komoroski, Director of Powersports at Kenda. “We’re enthusiasts first and foremost. In fact, a couple of our Ohio-based engineers are competing this year. It’s rewarding to see our work paying off as more and more riders choose to ride Kenda.”

Kenda will have a tire service crew at the Tennessee Knockout ready to help all the riders choose and mount the best options.

Kenda Returns as Official Tire of the 2021 Tennessee Knockout

Kenda has been a partner with the Tennessee Knockout (TKO) since the inaugural event in 2011. At that time, a small fraction of the competitors used Kenda tires, but the brand continued to develop and market new tires aimed at extreme off-road, and in 2020, a whopping 52% of the competitors raced on Kenda tires. While Red Bull has taken over the title sponsorship position to help grow the event and increase the exposure worldwide via Red Bull TV, Kenda will continue as the presenting sponsor and official tire of the Red Bull Tennessee Knockout.

“The Tennessee Knockout has become one of the premier off-road motorcycle events in the US and we are happy to continue to help extreme off-road motorcycle racing grow in popularity,” said Jason Baldwin, Director of Powersports at Kenda. “We are proud to have so many of the extreme off-road racers choose Kenda and the new Knarly tire is winning at the top level with Cody Webb and the Sherco team. We are happy to provide the tires that help riders get through the tough stuff.”

Kenda tires available on-site during the 2020 TKO

TKO sponsor Kenda Tires will be on-site again this year with a selection of enduro tires and miscellaneous services. Here are the details from Kenda’s Tim Anderson:

Kenda tires will be available at the TKO in Sequatchie TN again this year. With Kenda’s new expanded Extreme Enduro tire line-up, your choice is huge. Unless you have been living under a rock, Cody Webb has been killing it in the extreme enduro circuit on his Sherco with the new Knarly. The Ibex is still a great tire too, with expanded size availability. The Gauntlet offers the new Knarly tread pattern in a slightly different compound. TrackSide Support LLC will be the on-site vendor. We plan to be changing tires from Friday morning through the entire weekend.

This year we will have Nitro Mousse soft mousses available too, along with the Tubliss system. In addition, we have a fairly extensive line of hard parts and Kenda tubes, in case your weekend doesn’t go as planned.
