"Rather than knobbies I opted for your Compass 26x1.75 tires. They run round and true, are half the weight of knobbies and float over the gravel on the trail."

The Compass tires bring performance and comfort to bikes with 26-inch wheels. Whether a mountain bike, an expedition tourer or a tandem, you will be amazed at the difference a set of wide, supple tires can make. Unlike most 26" tires, the Compass tires are made with the casing and tread rubber of a high-end racing tire. As a result, the Compass tires roll faster, absorb shocks much better, and offer greatly improved cornering grip. Warning: You may never want to go back to your old tires after riding these.
Compass 26" tires are available in two widths: 1.75" (44 mm) and 1.5" (37 mm)
366 g (1.5")/447 g (1.75"), clincher, folding bead.
Made in Japan.
We recommend Schwalbe SV12 or SV14A (Superlight) tubes for Compass 26" tires.
