Rene Herse "Loup Loup Pass" Extralight Clincher Tyre (650 x 38mm)
*** Compass is now known as Rene Herse ***
The joy of a road bike without the drawbacks: The 38 mm Loup Loup Pass provides the intimate feedback that you love on a road bike, but does away with the chatter and discomfort. We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Loup Loup Pass (photo) connects the Methow Valley with the Okanagan in northern Washington State. The road across this scenic pass is paved, but the asphalt is rough and cracks have formed where the road has settled. Wide tires allow you to descend this beautiful pass with confidence.
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.
