- Whats the difference? – Kenda Nevegal vs. Panaracer Rampage
I run both on the front of different bikes, Nevs have bigger/taller blocks and seem to be a slightly bigger volume, between the 2 I’d probably go for the nevs. (actually I’d go for the cheapest but if same price the nevs)
I’d say they are decently big for a 2.35 not the biggest but not skinny.

Rode nevegals 2.3s for a few years but when rampages came out I switched – feel identical to each other to be honest but panaracers are better made IMO, by the way the ‘anti-snakebike’ chamber on the rampages in nonsense… has 2 snakies on this tyre vs none on the nevegals.
That said the rampages are lasting longer… I’d say if you are paying same price get the rampages or buy nevegals if cheaper (My rampages were 30 quid and used to get nevegals via ebay for about 15!!! but those bargains dissapeared and all that I could find were wire beads – avoid!)Posted 8 years agoDelSubscriber
kendas grip better in all conditions but roll slower on the road, noticeably. that’s only running kenda or panny on the back, both with blue groove front.Posted 8 years ago
rampages roll better but i can spin them up on the road climb even in the dry.
i’m more confident in the rampages’ side walls. the wire bead kendas i have had have had two failures at the bead, at about half worn, but were only 11 quid a go shipped if bought by the pair from woolly hat shop. skid more = less failures.
same tread pattern, one runs reversed compared to the other, oddly.
they’re both good tyres. if you want outright grip – kenda. mucho cheapness too.
if you want a little more confidence in longevity – panaracer, though it has to be said that wear rate appears the same if you don’t behave like a kid, but i don’t expect the bead on the panny to give up. dunno if i’d pay twice the kendas’ price though.
i only run these on the rear on my SS.
