Compass Cayuse Pass Extralight Clincher Tyre - Black (700 x 26mm)
Cayuse Pass (1425 m/4675 ft) is the last pass during the legendary Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day (RAMROD). It is a long climb that offers beautiful vistas of Mount Rainier and the snow-covered peaks of the Cascades.
Most participants in RAMROD ride racing bikes, and a 26 mm tire is the largest they can fit on their bikes. The Compass Cayuse Pass tires roll fast enough to stay with your group, and their superior comfort means you won't suffer even toward the end of this 156-mile ride.
The Cayuse Pass requires tubes - Compass recommends Schwalbe SV15 or SV20 tubes.
Compass tires combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clinchers and the width needed for allroad riding. Our supple casings roll smoothly over surface irregularities. They absorb less energy as they deform with each tire revolution. Compass tires make your bike feel alive. From the first meters, you will notice the difference.
Compass tires are well-suited for everyday use. The tread pattern interlocks with the road surface for superb cornering grip, whether your roads are wet or dry. The tread is 3 mm thick in the center to last many miles, but thin and supple on the shoulders where it doesn’t wear. Choose the widest tires your bike can fit for more speed on rough roads, better cornering grip, more comfort and fewer flats. (Wide tires roll over debris that gets hammered into narrower tires.)
The Extralight casings take the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. Once you have a set of Compass tires, you won’t be able to go back to “normal” tires!
