Compass 650Bx38 Loup Loup Pass

$59.00$78.00

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.

The Loop Loup Pass requires tubes.
We recommend the SV12 or SV14A tubes.

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!
