Named after the first climb of the Oregon Outback route, a 360-mile gravel ride/race over 70/30 gravel and pavement, the Switchback Hill Standard is designed to roll as fast and grip as well as a good racing tire. With enough tread in the center to last many miles combined with supple shoulders, the Switchback blends the best of both worlds, marrying gravel, grip and glide in one compelling tire package.

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.
