Grand Bois 650Bx42 Hetre (discontinued)
The 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.
The Hetre requires tubes.
Made in Japan.
