Compass 26″ x 1.25″ Elk Pass

$78.00

If you are looking for the fastest, lightest 26″ tire ever made, this probably is it. It weighs just 178 g and uses the Compass Extralight casing and our ultra-sticky tread rubber for the ultimate in suppleness and cornering grip. Thanks to its ultralight weight and small volume, it also is a great spare tire for emergencies for those traveling off the beaten path with 26″ wheels.

Elk Pass crosses between Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams in the Cascade Range. The road is paved, but it has settled in places, and cracks have opened in the pavement. With these tires, you can set a personal best on the climb, yet roll down with the confidence that your tire will handle whatever the road throws at you. And thanks for their 30 mm width, the Elk Pass tires even can handle the occasional foray onto rough gravel roads.

(Only available with Extralight casing and tan sidewalls.)

The Elk Pass requires tubes. We recommend the Schwalbe SV11A tubes for these tires.

Made in Japan.

Compass tires combine the performance of high-end tubular tires with the convenience of clinchers and the width needed for allroad riding. Our supple casings roll smoothly over surface irregularities. They absorb less energy as they deform with each tire revolution. Compass tires make your bike feel alive. From the first meters, you will notice the difference.

Compass tires are well-suited for everyday use. The tread pattern interlocks with the road surface for superb cornering grip, whether your roads are wet or dry. The tread is 3 mm thick in the center to last many miles, but thin and supple on the shoulders where it doesn’t wear. Choose the widest tires your bike can fit for more speed on rough roads, better cornering grip, more comfort and fewer flats. (Wide tires roll over debris that gets hammered into narrower tires.)

Available with Standard and Extralight casings. The Standard casings are an affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. The Extralight casings take the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. Once you have a set of Compass tires, you won’t be able to go back to “normal” tires!
