The Rat Trap Pass (26? x 54mm) is the ultimate expression of Compass's new Enduro Allroad tires. At 54 mm, 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 the mighty Suiattle & White Chuck Rivers while following the valley created by Crystal Creek and Straight Creek 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 touring bike or mountain bike, it will be hard to go back to lesser tires once you have tried them. The nominal width of the Rat Trap Pass tires is 2.3?, but on most rims, the tires measure 52 mm (with tubes) and 54 mm (tubeless). The Rat Trap Pass is tubeless-compatible in both standard and extralight casing. When used with tubes, we recommend the Schwalbe SV13 tubes. Max pressure: 55 psi Standard casing. For Ultralight, please call. Made in Japan

When you're out on a ride the last thing you want is to be limited by your tires in any way. Surly's ExtraTerrestrial tires were designed to let you ride without limits by following a simple tenet for tire design: make 'em high-volume and kick-ass. The ExtraTerrestrial tire was meant to serve as a heavy-duty off road touring tire that shines on hard pack surfaces. It uses a nylon breaker in the sidewalls for cut protection, a molded pattern for anti-cut propagation, and a Kevlar cap under the tread to protect against flats. The ET tire uses a distinctly directional tread pattern and its width yields more traction than you might expect from a tire with such little rolling resistance. The tread is low profile with a file tread in between blocks. The ExtraTerrestrial tire has enough width and traction for the soft stuff and won't bog you down on smooth or hard surfaces. It's made to be durable and versatile and is at home on tour or on the trail. - Bead Seat Diameter: 559mm - Casing: 60tpi, tubeless-ready bead (928g)
