Our inspiring overview is coming soon. For now, here is what Rene Herse has to say:
The Bon Jon Pass is our Goldilocks tire: at 700C x 35 mm, it fits bikes that have extra clearance around the Stampede Pass (32 mm), but not enough space for a Barlow Pass (38mm). We name our tires after the passes that have inspired them: Bon Jon Pass (photo) is a remote pass on the Olympic Peninsula. Its moderate gradient allows you to let your bike fly, and these tires are perfect for the smooth gravel surface of the pass itself and for the chip-sealed asphalt that covers the approach.
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 a more affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level.
The Bon Jon Pass is tubeless-compatible. When used with tubes, we recommend the SV17 or SV18 tubes.
Made in Japan.
