Our inspiring overview is coming soon. For now, here is what Rene Herse has to say:
All-road tires don’t get any better than this! We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Snoqualmie Pass (photo) was the route of the Olympian Hiawatha express train to Seattle. Today, a trail heads up the pass, with spectacular views as you traverse the old railroad trestles. You’ll enjoy the speed and grip of the supple casing on the paved sections of the climb, and the large air volume will have you float over the rough gravel rather than grind through it.
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 Endurance casing is reinforced for tough conditions, while the Endurance Plus casing provides the ultimate in sidewall protection.
The Snoqualmie Pass is tubeless-compatible. When used with tubes, we recommend the SV17 or SV18 tubes.
Made in Japan.
