René Herse Snoqualmie Pass TC 700C x 44

(4 customer reviews)


All-road tires don’t get any better than this! We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that inspire them: Snoqualmie Pass 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.

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.

The Snoqualmie Pass is tubeless-compatible.

The supple casing of our Rene Herse all-road tires rolls smoothly over surface irregularities. The tread pattern interlocks with the road surface for superior cornering grip, whether your roads are wet or dry. The tread has enough thickness in the center to last many miles, but it’s thin and supple on the shoulders where it doesn’t wear. All models feature:

    Very comfortable

    These tyres are lightweight and very comfortable. On the rear, I use Panaracer’s adhesive tyre-liners for added puncture protection.

    Fantastic fast rolling tyre

    Rohan (verified owner)

    The René Herse Snoqualmie Pass 700C x 44 are an incredibly expensive but incredibly smooth riding and fast rolling tyre. I switched from G One’s and am just about ready for the third set. On a gentle downhill my gravel bike rolls faster than the roadies. If you ride on rough or unpaved roads, light gravel, fire trails or non rocky single trail they are brilliant. As slicks they are hopeless in the mud, and if there are sharp rocks there is a risk of cutting into the sidewall. I run them tubeless and the sidewalls leak like a sieve when you set them up. Stans does not seal the sidewalls but Orange Seal works well. The downside to the tyre being so supple and thin is that if you get more than a tiny puncture hole, it can be challenging for the sealent to form a big enough plug in the thin tyre carcass to seal. If it does not seal I use the Dyna Plug Micro.

    Love these, fit happily in a surly straggler, plush squishy sticky fast tyres and look very cool.
