"2000 miles on a variety on good, bad, and awful pavement, gravel, grass, and dirt, in city and country, from Zurich to Inverness and lots of side trips in between, with only 2 flats, the same number my companion got on his Gatorskins. Thank you for introducing these tires."

Loup Loup Pass (1225 m/4020 ft) connects the Methow Valley with the Okanagan in northern Washington State. The road across this scenic pass is paved, but the pavement is rough and cracks can form where the road settles. Wide tires are a definite plus if you want to descend this beautiful pass with confidence.

Available with standard or extralight casings. The extralight casing not only reduces the tire’s weight, but is also more supple, thus increasing the tire’s speed and comfort even further.

We recommend Schwalbe SV12 or SV14A (Superlight) tubes for the Loup Loup Pass tires.
