Rene Herse "Antelope Hill" Extralight TL Tyre (700 x 55mm)
*** Compass is now known as Rene Herse ***
The ultimate tire for speedy gravel adventures! At 55 mm wide, the Antelope Hill is our largest tire yet. We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Antelope Hill is the last great climb on the 360-mile Oregon Outback mixed-surface ride/race. Oregon's gravel is quite loose in places, and the extra floatation of the Antelope Hill tires gives you more speed and security when the going gets really rough. [split]
Antelope Hill itself is a beautiful paved climb (photo), so we designed this tire to roll as fast and grip as well as a good racing tire. With this tire, you truly have the best of both worlds.
All Rene Herse tires combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clinchers and the width for all-road riding. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level.
The Antelope Hill is tubeless-compatible. When used with tubes, Compass recommend Schwalbe SV19A tubes.
