"My Vision. Racing bikes but also creating and sharing contents, travelling between the best events in the World, staying close to the community." - Marco Aurelio Fontana
After many successful years racing the cross country World Cup (including a bronze Olympic medal), Marco Aurelio Fontana has chosen a new path: Sharing his passion for two wheels - his way. Kenda is proud to follow Fontana on his journey in his new role of E-MTB ambassador. Not leaving his racing history behind, Fontana will race the Italian E-Enduro series and other selected races, such as stops of the E-EWS.
Having been already involved in the development of the Kenda Booster during his time with Team Bianchi, Fontana will continue to contribute to the development of e-mtb tires with his experience and insight. His tires of choice will be the Hellkat and Nevegal 2 with EMC casing.
Kenda EMC tires are ECE-R75 certified for e-bikes up to 50 km/h. Click to find out more.
"Having Kenda on my side for this new project is such a big thing for me! After two years of enjoying the products and racing all over the world I finally have the chance to ride more, test more and develop products for tough conditions, especially on E-MTBs. Racing will be still on the program because this is where the hardest testing is done, but I want to create more contents and show what I’m capable of and what a pro can do on an e-bike. Good things to come, I’m so excited!" - Marco Aurelio Fontana
"We are excited to continue our great partnership with Marco Fontana and support his new project. In the past two years Kenda invested a lot in the development of E-MTB tires and will continue to do so. Having Fontana ambassador for our EMC technology is absolutely great for us!" - Hubert Hager (Kenda Marketing Manager Europe)
