For those in the know, Babyshoe Pass is a remote pass nestled between the volcanoes of Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams that provides a back-door way from Seattle to Portland, avoiding the crowded Puget Lowland. René Herse named their iconic 650b tire in honor of this path less travelled, so naturally, the Babyshoe balances all-surface grip and sufficient volume in a silhouette that rolls as fast as race tires on the road yet floats over rougher surfaces when the pavement ends.

The Babyshoe Pass - Standard casing edition keeps things comfortable and fast, yet also strong enough to withstand considerable abuse.

Shipping & Returns

We ship the same day for everything other than entire bikes if you order before 11 am P.S.T. But if it's the weekend, we'll be out riding, and your order will leave Monday. Shipping costs are detailed on checkout, but we offer a few different services depending on your preference for speed. So if you need those new shoes for next week's ride or tomorrow's - we got you. And returns are easy, too. Send us a mail if something doesn't work out, and as long as it's unused and in its original packaging (naturally for apparel and footwear, you can try things on at home), we'll happily take it back within 30 days of your order.

If you have any questions or just want to say hi and talk about bikes, drop us a line.
