26″ x 1.8″ Naches Pass TC

$68.00$85.00

The Naches Pass is the 26″ version of our iconic Babyshoe Pass 650B tires, with a perfect balance of on-pavement grip and off-pavement volume. We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Naches Pass (photo) is a historic route across the Cascades that has been bypassed by modern highways. Today, it’s a beautiful trail that winds through the forest before crossing the Pacific Crest Trail above the treeline, with great views of Mount Rainier in the distance.

All Rene Herse tires combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clinchers and the width for all-road riding. The Standard casing is an affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level.

The Naches Pass is tubeless-compatible. When used with tubes, we recommend the SV12 or SV14A tubes.

Made in Japan.

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:
  • Clincher, folding bead
  • Tubeless-compatible
  • Actual width on 23 mm rims: ~42 mm
  • Maximum pressure with tubes: 75 psi (5.2 bar)
