Chinook Pass (1656 m/5430 ft) branches off from Cayuse Pass and leads to Eastern Washington. The road takes you up to the treeline, and as you round Tipsoo Lake, you get the most spectacular vista of Mount Rainier. The view is especially impressive in the morning, when the glaciers glow in the early sunlight.
Chinook Pass is a high pass, so there tends to be gravel left over from the last snowfalls. A slightly wider tires will make the ride here much safer and more enjoyable.
Available with standard or extralight casing and brown or black sidewalls. The extralight casing not only reduces the tire’s weight, but is also more supple, thus increasing the tire’s speed and comfort even further.
The Compass line of tires is designed to offer optimum performance above all. They incorporate the results of eight years of tire testing by Bicycle Quarterly magazine. Their supple casing is key to making these tires roll faster than most. It also absorbs vibrations and shocks better, making these tires supremely comfortable. The tire tread was designed to offer optimum cornering adhesion and precision, both in wet and dry conditions.
The Extralight casing not only reduces the tire’s weight, but is also more supple, thus increasing the tire’s speed and comfort even further.
