Rene Herse "Fleecer Ridge" Standard TL Tyre (29 x 2.2")
Note: 29 x 2.2" or 700 x 55mm
The ultimate tire for bikepacking and gravel adventures! Developed together with bikepacking legend Lael Wilcox, the Fleecer Ridge measures 29″ x 2.2″ (or 700C x 55 mm), making it a perfect fit for bikepacking bikes. We name our tires after the passes that have inspired them: Fleecer Ridge is the toughest climb on the incredible Tour Divide that traverses the Rocky Mountains from Canada to the Mexican border. On a ride that long, you’ll need a tire that can handle a huge range of conditions, from deep snow and mud via fast gravel to pavement as you descend into towns to resupply.
While the Fleecer Ridge looks like a knobby – and grips like one when conditions get tough – it rolls like a slick tire thanks to its large and strategically placed knobs that don’t squirm and always put the same amount of rubber on the road. The staggered tread pattern not only makes the Fleecer Ridge roll even more smoothly, it also reduces tire noise by creating overlapping frequencies that cancel each other. The Fleecer Ridge is the world’s first bicycle tire with noise cancellation, a feature we’ve patented because it’s so revolutionary.
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 Standard casing is our more affordable option: comfortable and fast, yet also strong to withstand considerable abuse.
The Fleecer Ridge is tubeless-compatible. For tubeless setup, we recommend SealSmart sealant. When used with tubes, we recommend the SV19 or SV19A tubes.
