"The Hetres are the King of Tires: fast on the road, plush as anything you have ever experienced in your life, sturdy and incredibly long-wearing."
— S. P., Alexandria VA
Hetre (pronounced ‘ATre’, French for
beech tree) is constructed like a high-end racing
tire, but with more than twice the air volume of
a 28 mm-wide tire. On smooth roads, it rolls
as fast as a good racing tire. When the road
turns rough, it does not slow down significantly.
You will be amazed at the speed you carry across
rough roads, and at the comfort these tires
provide. The best riding often is away from
traffic on little backroads or even gravel. The
Hetre opens up a whole world of possibilities.
412 g, clincher, folding bead. Available with black, red or white tread. Made in Japan.
If you are looking for this tire with the Extra Léger casing, we recommend the Compass Babyshoe Pass 650B x 42 mm, which also features a tread optimized for performance and cornering.
We recommend Schwalbe SV12 or SV14A (Superlight) tubes for the Hetre.
