700c, 27-Inch & 650c
Cayuse Pass (1425 m/4675 ft) is the last pass during the legendary Ride Around Mount Rainier in One Day (RAMROD). It is a long climb that offers beautiful vistas of Mount Rainier and the snow-covered peaks of the Cascades. Most participants in RAMROD ride racing bikes, and a 26 mm tire is the largest they can fit on their bikes. The Cayuse Pass tires roll fast enough to stay with your group, and their superior comfort means you won’t suffer even toward the end of this 156-mile ride. Available with standard or extralight casing. For extralight, choose tan or black sidewalls below. The Cayuse Pass requires tubes.
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.
The Barlow Pass tires is named after a pass on the Mountain Loop Highway, a scenic gravel road through the central Cascades. The road leads past the ghost town of Monte Cristo before ascending the pass. On the long straights and sweeping turns of this gravel road, the extra stability of a large-wheeled bike can provide an advantage as you descend at high speed. The Barlow Pass is a great road tire for 700C bikes with moderately large clearances. If you prefer a true dual-purpose knobby in the same the 700C x 38 mm size, check out the Steilacoom. The Barlow Pass is tubeless-compatible.
Chinook Pass (1656 m/5430 ft) branches off from Cayuse Pass and leads to Eastern Washington. The road takes you up to the treeline, and as you round Tipsoo Lake, you get the most spectacular vista of Mount Rainier. The view is especially impressive in the morning, when the glaciers glow in the early sunlight. Chinook Pass is a high pass, so there tends to be gravel left over from the last snowfalls. A slightly wider tires will make the ride here much safer and more enjoyable. Available with standard or extralight casing. For extralight, choose tan or black sidewalls below. The Chinook Pass requires tubes.
