Rene Herse tires are well-suited for everyday use. Choose the widest tires your bike can fit for more speed on rough roads, better cornering grip, more comfort and fewer flats. (Wide tires roll over debris that gets hammered into narrower tires.)
Available with Standard, Extralight and Endurance casings. The Standard casings are an affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. The Extralight casings take the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. The Endurance casing is reinforced for extra sidewall protection and puncture resistance, while retaining most of the speed and comfort for which Rene Herse tires are famous. Once you have a set of Rene Herse tires, you won’t be able to go back to “normal” tires!

The glorious light and supple casing, re-engineered to boast the benefits of added sidewall protection and a more puncture resistant thread lattice. Enjoy the magical feeling of Rene Herse tyres with the piece of mind that extra protection facilitates. Perfect for the notorious New Forest sharp flint or for bike-packing trips where varied terrain could become unpredictable!
The ultimate 650B dual-purpose tire is designed for adventures where you don’t know what lies ahead. It offers excellent performance and cornering on paved roads, yet its knobs dig into the surface when it gets slippery. The tread pattern is designed to increase the amount of rubber in contact with the road as you lean the bike into turns to maximise grip.
We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Juniper Ridge is a rough trail on the Dark Divide in the centre of the Cascade Mountains. To reach this remote destination, this tire combines ample width with ultra-fast casings and our unique tread pattern.
