René Herse 26″ x 2.3″ Humptulips Ridge TC

René Herse 26″ x 2.3″ Humptulips Ridge TC

$130.00$155.00

Our revolutionary dual-purpose knobbies in a 26″ version. Humptulips Ridge, the place that inspired these tires, is at the southern edge of the remote Olympic Mountains. A beautiful narrow gravel road climbs one side of the ridge, then descends the other, in an otherworldly loop that ranks among the best riding experiences anywhere.

The Humptulips Ridge grips like a knobby when conditions get tough. On pavement, it rolls like a slick tire thanks to its large and strategically placed knobs that don’t squirm and always put the same amount of rubber on the road. The Humptulips Ridge features our noise cancelling technology: The staggered tread blocks create overlapping noise frequencies that partially cancel each other. Thanks to the superior materials used in its construction, the Humptulips Ridge is one of the lightest tires in its class.

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 Endurance Plus casing provides the ultimate in sidewall protection for extremely tough conditions.

SEALANT RECOMMENDATION:

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

    Just completed a 1200 km tour on our tandem….lots of rough tracks and forest roads as well as badly broken tar. Tyres are showing some wear…to be expected on a loaded tandem! Chose these because of the endurance plus rating..they have no cuts or marks showing .We have Rene Herse tyres on our solo bikes …one has 6500 kms with more expected.Highly recommended product.
