Juniper Ridge Endurance 650c Cleated Tyre - Dark Brown

In stock

The Juniper Ridge TC is the long awaited lugged version of the 48mm wide René Herse Switchback Hill in 650B wheel size. The problem with many dual-purpose tyres is that the lugs are often too small and therefore too soft to deliver good results on the road - at the same time, they are often positioned so close together that the tread quickly clogs up off-road and performance drops here too.

For this reason, already on the first René Herse Cycles Knobby, the 700C x 38 mm Steilacoom TC, the lugs were made larger and more stable to prevent the lugs from bending sideways. They have been spaced further apart to improve self-cleaning in muddy terrain and also arranged in such a way that you always have the same amount of rubber as a contact surface on the ground - regardless of whether you ride straight ahead or lean into the corners. This gives you consistent grip in every situation.

The concept has worked perfectly with the Steilacoom: It rolls so well on the road that you can almost forget you're on lugged tyres - even if you can't help but hear it, as the lugs just start to "sing" on asphalt. Off-road - especially when conditions get damp and muddy - the comparatively large lugs guarantee the grip you need and the clever lug design and wide spacing ensure that the tread reliably cleans itself. You and a wheel get dirty, but your tread stays "clean" - just like a good CX tyre has to be!
