René Herse 27.5″ x 2.2″ (650B x 55) Umtanum Ridge TC

$130.00$155.00

The ultimate 650B bikepacking tire is designed for rides where you don’t know what lies ahead. Umtanum Ridge a steep and lonesome ridge in the central Cascade Mountains. It is so remote that European settlers never renamed it, and it carries its ancestral Native American name to this day.

The Umtanum Ridge’s large and widely spaced knobs grip tenaciosly when conditions get tough. On pavement, it rolls and corners like a slick thanks to its large and strategically placed knobs that don’t squirm and always put the same amount of rubber on the road. The Umtanum Ridge features our noise cancellation technology: The staggered tread blocks create overlapping noise frequencies that partially cancel each other. This means that on most surfaces, the Umtanum Ridge doesn’t just roll as fast as a slick – it’s also as quiet as a slick.

The Standard casing is our more affordable option: comfortable and fast, yet also strong to withstand considerable abuse. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. The Endurance casing is reinforced for extra sidewall protection and puncture resistance, while retaining the speed and comfort for which Rene Herse tires are famous. The Endurance Plus casing provides the ultimate in sidewall protection for extremely tough conditions.

SEALANT RECOMMENDATION:

This tyre is tubeless-compatible. If running tubeless on Rene Herse tyres we recommend using Orange Seal sealant with these tyres. Check out Rene Herse’s guide to setting up tubeless tyres here.

    2 reviews for René Herse 27.5″ x 2.2″ (650B x 55) Umtanum Ridge TC

    1. Salman Shami

      They were a pain to install even though I first used tubes. It took several blasts from my Giant inflation tank and soapy water before they finally took pity and sealed. But that was the last time I swore in their presence :).
      They measure 57.5mm and lose only 1psi a week with Orange Sealant.
      They hum a little on bitumen but are effortless to ride. The Bridge Club they are on feels nimble and poppy with just the right amount of grip for all surfaces whether l am making an emergency stop to avoid a wayward dog or am riding down a steep dirt slope. For me it’s the holy grail of tyres.

    2. Peter Gray

      Loving these tires. I found them easy to setup (I have a compressor), fast rolling, quiet on bitumen and super fun on the rough stuff.
      I had the Juniper Ridge previously, and I like these even more.
