Compass Bon Jon Pass 700 x 35c Tires: Extralight Casing - Tan (New, Pair)
Jan Heine from Bicycle Quarterly and Compass designed these tires to be plush and fast beyond belief. They are designed to be clinchers with a similar ride feel/quality as silk racing tubulars. These are superbe tires for racing, commuting, or shallow gravel/dirt. I'm slowly equipping most of my road/gravel bikes with Compass tires and not looking back. They're really that good!
From the manufacturer:
"The Bon Jon Pass is our Goldilocks tire: at 700C x 35 mm, it fits bikes that have extra clearance around the Stampede Pass (32 mm), but not enough space for a Barlow Pass (38mm). Bon Jon Pass is accessed via a relatively smooth gravel road on the Olympic Peninsula. The moderate gradient allows you to let your bike fly, and these tires are perfect for surfaces like that.
On pavement, the Bon Jon Pass will outcorner narrower tires thanks to its greater width and its lower pressure, both of which keep more rubber in contact with the road surface. The Bon Jon Pass will glide over chipseal where narrower or less supple tires will chatter. If your bike can fit this tire, you won’t be disappointed."
