Rene Herse "Loup Loup Pass" Standard TL 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 inspire them: Loup Loup Pass 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 traverse this beautiful pass with confidence.
The result is a true dual-purpose knobby that excels in mud and snow, yet on pavement, it's faster than most road tires. Whether you race 'cross or head out for an adventure into unknown terrain, the Steilacoom will surprise you with its excellent performance on all surfaces.
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 Loop Loup Pass requires tubes. We recommend the SV12 or SV14A tubes.
