Compass Rat Trap Pass Tyre - 26″ x 2.3″

Sold Out

The Rat Trap Pass (26″ x 54mm) is the ultimate expression of our new Enduro Allroad tires. With its 54 mm width, it is incredibly plush, yet thanks to the smaller 26″ wheel size, it handles like a good road tire.

Rat Trap Pass bridges the gap between Crystal Creek and Straight Creek valleys near Darrington, WA. It’s a road that is rough in places and smooth in others, so the extra volume both increases your confidence and your speed. On pavement, the grip of the Rat Trap Pass is incredible – think race car with ultra-wide tires.

Experiment with your tire pressures to get the most out of the Rat Trap Pass. Too high, and it will bounce on undulating pavement. Too low, and it will collapse during enthusiastic cornering. Get it just right, and you have a tire that outcorners and outhandles almost any other tire on surfaces from smooth pavement to rough gravel. Only in soft mud will knobbies offer more traction.

Whether you use this tire on a brand-new Enduro Allroad Bike or upgrade your existing 26″ tandem, touring bike or mountain bike, it will be hard to go back to lesser tires once you have tried them.

Made in Japan.
