René HERSE Elk Pass 26″ x 1.25″ extralight


If you are looking for the fastest, lightest 26″ tire ever made, this probably is it. The Elk Pass weighs just 178 g and uses our Extralight casing and ultra-sticky tread rubber for the ultimate in suppleness and cornering grip. Thanks to its ultralight weight and small volume, it also is a great spare tire for emergencies when traveling off the beaten path with 26″ wheels.

They name the tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Elk Pass crosses between Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams in the Cascade Range. The road is paved, but it has settled in places, and cracks have opened in the pavement. With these tires, you can set a personal best on the climb, yet roll down with the confidence that your tire will handle whatever the road throws at you. And thanks for their 30 mm width, the Elk Pass tires even can handle the rough gravel of the trails that branch off the main road.

Only available with Extralight casing that takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. Tan sidealls.

The Elk Pass requires tubes.

Made in Japan.
