The ultimate tire for bikepacking and speedy gravel adventures! At 55 mm wide, the Antelope Hill is our largest tire yet. We name our tires after the passes in the Cascade Mountains that have inspired them: Antelope Hill is the last great climb on the 360-mile Oregon Outback mixed-surface ride/race. Oregon’s gravel is quite loose in places, and the extra floatation of the Antelope Hill tires gives you more speed and security when the going gets really rough.
Antelope Hill itself is a beautiful paved climb (photo), 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 Standard casing is a more affordable option that also offers extra protection against sidewall cuts on sharp rocks. The Extralight casing takes the performance, comfort and feel of your bike to an entirely new level. The Endurance casing is reinforced for extra sidewall protection and puncture resistance, while retaining the speed and comfort for which Rene Herse tires are famous. The Endurance Plus casing provides the ultimate in sidewall protection for extremely tough conditions.
