René Herse Switchback Hill - 650B x 48

At 48 mm wide, the Switchback Hill is Compass largest 650B (27.5″) tire yet. Switchback Hill is a climb on the 360 mile Oregon Outback gravel ride/race. The gravel is quite loose in places, and the extra floatation of the Switchback Hill tires gives you more speed and security when the going gets really rough.

30% of the Oregon Outback is on pavement, so we designed this tire to roll as fast and grip as well as a good racing tire. With this tire, you truly have the best of both worlds. The Switchback Hill is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casing.
