The Cyprès (named after the Cypress tree) is a great choice for a narrow 650B tire. It is constructed like a racing tire, so it offer the speed and feel of a great tubular, but with extra shock absorption thanks to the extra air volume. Enjoy your bike to the fullest with a set of Grand Bois tires!

The Lierre (pronounced 'LEE-air', French for 'ivy') is an ideal tire for bikes that don’t quite fit the wonderful Hetre. A full 38 mm wide, it provides 25% more air volume than a 34 mm-wide tire. Add the Grand Bois casing that is constructed like a quality racing tire, and you get speed and comfort that is unmatched by almost any other tire (except our Hetre).
365 g, clincher, folding bead. Nominal width: 650B x 36 mm.
Made in Japan.
The Hetre (pronounced ‘ATre’, French for beech tree) is constructed like a high-end racing tire, but with more than twice the air volume of a 28 mm-wide tire. On smooth roads, it rolls as fast as a good racing tire. When the road turns rough, it does not slow down significantly. You will be amazed at the speed you carry across rough roads, and at the comfort these tires provide. The best riding often is away from traffic on little backroads or even gravel. The Hetre opens up a whole world of possibilities.
412 g, clincher, folding bead. Available with black, red or white tread. Made in Japan.
