    People often pay little mind to their tyres but a quality tyre can make a monumental difference to the ride of your bike. Greater grip and control from supple tyres leads to faster cornering and more confident handling, particularly when conditions are loose, rough, slippery or just plain unforgiving. Supple tyres also roll faster and more consistently across a range of tyre pressures, meaning that regardless of the pressures you ride in your Rene Herse tyres, you'll notice little change in actual speed - compare that to stiffer cheap or 'standard' tyres that are slower already and that rapidly lose speed as the pressure drops.

    The Barlow Pass is the sweet spot for most all-road bikes. Rene Herse tyres are named after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them. The Barlow Pass is near the ghost town of Monte Cristo in the northern Cascades and is the perfect tyre for rides that combine equal portions of road and gravel: light enough so your bike retains the nimble feel of a road bike, yet 38 mm wide to give you amazing traction on road and off.

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

    The Barlow Pass is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casings and we recommend the use of Muc-Off, Peaty's or Orange Seal tyre sealants.

    Rene Herse tyres combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clincher. The supple casings roll smoothly over surface irregularities. 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.

    Mounting Supple Tyres

    • Rotational direction: Rene Herse tyres can be mounted in either direction.

    • Supple casings make Rene Herse tyres fast and comfortable, but they don’t hold their shape by themselves like stiffer tyres. A little extra care is needed when mounting Rene Herse tyres on your rims.


    Preparation

    • Inspect the rim tape to make sure it covers all spoke holes. With tubeless compatible rims, always use tubeless rim tape, even when using tubes.

    Please note : If you are replacing Tubeless tyres on Carbon Rims – it is best practice to replace the Tubeless Tape as a matter of course. This maximises safety and mitigates against rim failure in the event of poor tape condition.

    • Check the valve hole. Remove sharp edges before mounting the tyre.


    Installing The Tyre With An Inner Tube

    • Place one bead of the tyre into the rim well.

    • On tubeless-compatible rims, make sure the bead is in the curved “well” in the centre, not on the flat “shelves” on the sides of the rim bed.

    • Barely inflate the tube so it holds its shape. Insert it into the tyre.

    • Push the second bead over the rim sidewall into the “well”, starting opposite the valve. Push the valve inward as you push the last bit of the bead over the sidewall. It may be necessary to deflate the tube at this point.

    Check The Tyre Seating

    • Push the tyre sidewall inward and check that the tube is not trapped between tyre bead and rim.

    • Inflate the tyre lightly (1.7 bar/25 psi). Check the line that is molded into the tyre sidewall : Do this on both sides of the tyre.

    Good – Get out and ride!

    RH Tyre Install

    • If the line is even and parallel to the rim edge all around the tyre (above, arrows), the tyre is seated correctly. (Just below the molded line is a depression, which interlocks with the hook on the rim sidewall.)

     

    Bad – Do Not Ride!

    RH Tyre Install

     

    • If the line is uneven and/or disappears underneath the rim sidewall (above), then the tyre is not seated correctly.

    • Tubeless-compatible rims: Inflate the tyre until it seats itself. (You may hear a “snap”.)

    • Standard rims: Seat the tyre correctly before inflating it (below).

    RH Tyre Install

     

    • Where the line is not visible, push the tyre outward until the line appears (above). Do this all around the tyre, until the line is even and parallel to the rim edge, on both sides of the tyre.

    • Inflate the tyre. To allow the tube to seat well, deflate and re-inflate the tyre.

    • Check that your tyre is seated properly before every ride.

    Never Ride On A Poorly Seated Tyre!

    • If you cannot get the tyre seated correctly, do not ride the bike! The tyre can blow off the rim, resulting in serious injuries.

    • Bring your bike to us or your local, skilled bike shop and ask them for help with installing your tyre.

     

    Tubeless-Compatible

    Many Rene Herse tyre models are tubeless-compatible. Refer to the packaging to see whether your tyres are tubeless-compatible. Tubeless-compatible tyres can be used with inner tubes, or set up tubeless (with a sealant) on tubeless rims. We highly recommend Muc-Off No Puncture Hassle, Peaty’s Tubeless Sealant or Orange Seal for initial set up. Maximum recommended pressure for tubeless is 4.1 bar (60 psi).

     

    Safety Advice

    For your safety, perform the following inspection before every ride:

    • Check that your brake pads are properly aligned. Squeeze the brakes hard. The pads must not come within 1 mm of the top of the rim. Check the pads: If a ridge has worn into the pads, then they are misaligned and can cut the tyre sidewall and cause a blowout.

    • Inspect your tyres to make sure they are seated correctly. Refer to the instructions above.

    • Do not exceed the maximum tyre pressure listed on the tyre sidewalls. Do not ride the tyres underinflated, so that they bulge out excessively. Either can cause a blowout and serious injuries.

    Question asked by Conal on Jul 14 2020 4:04PM
    Hi, Yes, the price is per tyre. You can click twice or adjust the quantity in your basket during checkout. Thanks
