Supple tires are the most dramatic change you can make to the feel and performance of your bike. They roll more smoothly over the irregularities of the road surface, making them more comfortable and faster. They also absorb less energy as they deform with each tire revolution, which also increases your speed. Most of all, supple tires make your bike feel alive.
With supple tires, you can run wider tires at lower pressures, making your bike more comfortable and sure-footed, with no loss in performance. Professional racers have benefited from this research, but the bike industry continues to lag behind this trend and still reinforces most wide tires with puncture-proof belts and sturdy casings.
Our Compass tires provide the amazing ride of high-end tubular tires, but with the convenience of clinchers: There is no need to glue tires onto your rims any longer to experience the wonderful ride of supple tires. Thanks to their wider sections and lower pressures, Compass tires roll over debris that gets hammered into narrower tires, making them remarkably puncture-resistant. The tread is thick enough in the center to make our tires long-lasting. The tread pattern is designed to interlock with the road surface, so our tires offer amazing cornering grip, both in wet and dry conditions.
Compass tires are available in a variety of sizes to fit most bikes. Once you ride them, you won’t be able to go back to “normal” tires!
More than any other component, supple tires change the feel and performance of your bike. From the first meters, you will notice the difference, and it will put a smile on your face.
Compass tires are designed to offer optimum performance above all. Their supple casing is key to making these tires roll faster than most. It also absorbs vibrations and shocks better, making these tires supremely comfortable. The tire tread was designed to offer optimum cornering adhesion and precision, both in wet and dry conditions.
Despite this focus on performance, Compass tires are sensible everyday tires. The tread is 3 mm thick in the center to last many miles, unlike thinner high-performance tires which are best treated as “event” tires. We at Compass ride our tires year-round on the road, on gravel and in the city, without any problems and with very, very few flats.
Available with Standard and Extralight casings. Standard casings that offer extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. Extralight casings take the performance, comfort and feel to an entirely new level.
Most Compass are road tires, designed for excellent performance on pavement. They work equally well on gravel, where your traction is determined more by volume than by your tire tread. For rides where you may encounter slippery conditions, we offer true dual-purpose knobbies, which will amaze you with their speed and cornering traction both on pavement and in mud.
