Rene Herse "Rat Trap Pass" Extralight TL Tyre (26″ x 2.3″)
*** Compass is now known as Rene Herse ***
The ultimate expression of our all-road tires – perfect for a new custom bike or to convert your old mountain bike into a competent all-road bike. With its 54 mm width, the Rat Trap Pass is incredibly plush, yet thanks to the smaller 26″ wheel size, your bike will be nimble like a good road bike.
We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Rat Trap Pass bridges the gap between the mighty Suiattle and White Chuck Rivers. It’s a road that is rough in places and smooth in others, and the extra volume increases your confidence and speed. On pavement, the grip of the Rat Trap Pass is incredible – think race car with ultra-wide tires.
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 Rat Trap Pass is tubeless-compatible. When used with tubes, Compass recommend Schwalbe SV13 tubes.Specifications
