I'm new to mountain biking and new to this forum.
I purchased a new Giant Yukon yesterday, and after my first short ride, i have a leak in my tire.
I'm not sure, but the tire seems to be tubeless since the air is leaking directly from the tire. I have located the leak, it is small.
The tire is a Kenda Nevegal, K1010-008. Is it tubeless? How do i fix it. Bike shops are closed today and I want to ride...Please advise. Thank you.

I don't think it is tubeless.
If you are losing air, you need to patch or replace the inner tube.

Here's some instructions:

Even a "normal" tyre can be so tight that it keeps the air on the inside. Once when I had replaced a tube and was pumping up the tyre, I kept hearing this hissing sound and thought the tube was already damaged. Turns out it was just air squeezing out from between tube and tyre.
