Kenda Returns as Official Tire of Tennessee Knockout

July 29, 2021 / Powersports

Sequatchie, TN – 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 whooping 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 world-wide 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 will have a tire service crew at the Tennessee Knockout ready to help all the riders choose the best options.

The 2021 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout will take place at the Trials Training Center, in Sequatchie, Tennessee on August 13-15, 2021. The TKO serves as the AMA Grand Championship for Extreme Off-Road and the event is part of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship, so the top riders from around the world will face off against the best North American hard enduro riders for a $10,000 purse.
