I'm looking for new tires for my spot. I don't do hucks but get into some steeps and fairly rough terrain. Downieville is a good example. I also like to climb- so I guess I'm looking for all mountain tires. Considering Kenda Nevegals but have never ridden them. Currently using wtb wierwolf r and mutanoraptor f.
Thanks

I have been using the WTB Timberwolf and have found it to suit the 5-Spot and my terrain very well.

Where are you riding anyway? What are your trails like (smooth hardpack, loose soil, sandy, rocky, etc.)? That will be the determining factor.

Might want to post this in the Turner board.

Nevegals are good for loose conditions, I always use them on the rear. If there are rocks or hardpack, I prefer the Blue Groove on the front

Good tires

I like the Nevegal but if you like to climb the Schwalbe Nobby Nic is over 100g lighter and a little wider with little more open tread but it still rolls faster than the nevegal. I've had no durability issues with either tire but I would guess the Nev has a durability edge with the extra 100g.

I don't know, NEVs are known to loose knobs. I certainly lost one or two off of mine.

Tires are more locale specific than bike specific, so post in your regional forum citing your favorite trails.
I do like the kendas bg and nev, although slow rolling. I am trying the DTC versions for Austin riding soon (root/rock ledges, some loose stuff, some smooth singletrack).

The sidewalls in 3 of for of my last Kenda purchases have started to delaminate. No stans use.

Go Schwalbe or wait or the Panaracer
