René Herse 700 x 48 Hatcher Pass TC

René Herse 700 x 48 Hatcher Pass TC

$85.00$145.00

At 48 mm wide, the Hatcher Pass hits the sweet spot between narrow gravel tire (38 mm) and mountain bike volume (55 mm) – ideal for the latest generation of gravel and all-road bikes. Named after Lael Wilcox’ favorite road in Alaska, this tire perfect for Hatcher Pass: The front side of the climb is paved and leads to Independence Mine (an abandoned gold mine that is now a state park). The back side is dirt. In August and September there are fields full of wild blueberries near the top.

The Standard casing is our more affordable option: comfortable and fast, yet also strong to withstand considerable abuse. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. The Endurance casing is reinforced for extra sidewall protection and puncture resistance, while retaining the speed and comfort for which Rene Herse tires are famous.

The Snoqualmie Pass is tubeless-compatible. If running tubeless we recommend using Orange Seal sealant with these tyres. Check out Rene Herse’s guide to setting up tubeless tyres here.

  • Clincher, folding bead
  • Tubeless-compatible
  • Maximum pressure with tubes: 55 psi (3.5 bar)
  • Maximum recommended pressure – tubeless: 55 psi (3.5 bar)

  1. Mike (verified owner)

    This is my third set of RH tyres. Compared to the Snoqualmine Pass extralights (which have been incredibly durable and surprisingly puncture resistant) they are slightly slower rolling, but clearly a lot tougher. 35psi is plenty and still supple. I’m looking forward to using them on a mix of tarmac and gravel on a ride soon. I’ve set them up with tubes. They are probably as big as I’d want to go on a light supple tyre – any bigger might get a bit bouncy.
