The Naches Pass is the 26″ version of the iconic Babyshoe Pass 650B tire, with a perfect balance of on-pavement grip and off-pavement volume. Named after a pass in the Cascade Mountains that inspire them: Naches Pass is a historic route across the Cascades that has been bypassed by modern highways. Today it’s a beautiful trail that winds through the forest before crossing the Pacific Crest Trail at the treeline, with great views of Mount Rainier in the distance.
The Standard casing is the more affordable option: comfortable and fast, yet also strong to withstand considerable abuse. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level.
The Naches Pass is tubeless-compatible. For tubeless setup, we recommend Panaracer or Stan’s Race sealant.
Made in Japan.
The supple casing of our Rene Herse all-road tires rolls smoothly over surface irregularities.
