Enjoy the comfort and speed of supple tires on your road bike. We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that inspire them: Chinook Pass branches off from Cayuse Pass and heads to Eastern Washington. The road takes you above the treeline, and as you round Tipsoo Lake, you get the most spectacular vista of Mount Rainier – especially in the morning, when the glaciers glow in the early sunlight.
The Standard casing is our 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 Chinook Pass requires tubes.
The supple casing of our Rene Herse all-road tires rolls smoothly over surface irregularities. The tread pattern interlocks with the road surface for superior cornering grip, whether your roads are wet or dry. The tread has enough thickness in the center to last many miles, but it’s thin and supple on the shoulders where it doesn’t wear. All models feature:
