Rene Herse (formerly known as 'Compass Cycles,') has been bringing high performing tires to market since the beginning! Rene Herse is THE name in supple, fast rolling tires and we are proud to say that we are now stocking a wide array of their tires here for your riding pleasure. Hand-made in Japan by Panaracer to Rene Herse's specifications, there's no better way to bring your riding experience to life than by choosing these tires.
What René Herse says about the Juniper Ridge:
"The ultimate 650B adventure tire is designed for rides where you don’t know what lies ahead. Juniper Ridge is a rough trail on the Dark Divide in the centre of the Cascade Mountains. To reach this remote destination, you want a fast tire that gets you there. When you’re actually climbing Juniper Ridge, you need excellent grip and ample volume to cope with the rugged nature of this trail.
The Juniper Ridge’s large knobs don’t squirm and offer excellent performance and cornering on paved roads, yet they are spaced widely to dig into the surface when it gets slippery. The tread self-cleans as the tire rotates. You have to ride these tires to believe how fast they roll and how well they corner!"
All the Rene Herse tires we stock here at the Outpost come in 3 or 4 different casings. Choose the Standard for a high-quality baseline, Extralight for the fastest and most comfortable tire possible, Endurance for additional sidewall protection, and Endurance Plus for when you need the ultimate in reassurance and are far in the backcountry.
**When it comes to colours, Standard is tan sidewall only, Endurance and Endurance Plus is dark tan only, and Extralight comes in black or tan.**
