René HERSE Antelope Hill Tire 700C x 55 TC


At 55 mm wide, the Antelope Hill is our largest tire yet. Antelope Hill is the unofficial name of the last great climb on the 360 mile Oregon Outback mixed-surface ride/race. The gravel is quite loose in places, and the extra floatation of the Antelope Hill tires gives you more speed and security when the going gets really rough.

Antelope Hill itself is a beautiful paved climb (photo on the left), so we designed this tire to roll as fast and grip as well as a good racing tire. With this tire, you truly have the best of both worlds.

The Antelope Hill also can transform the performance of your 29er mountain bike on gravel or paved roads. However, it is not intended for truly technical terrain, and with its supple sidewalls, it will not climb out of ruts like a stiff mountain bike tire.

The Antelope Hill is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casings.
