Named for the Babyshoe Pass that runs between Mt St. Helens and Mt. Adams in the Pacific Northwest Cascades. It's a long climb up a gravel road that provides an alternate route between Portland and Seattle, which then transforms into paved paths and roads. This tire can take the beating of the rough roads while still giving a fast ride on the paved sections.You can learn more about the Babyshoe Pass ride on Compass' blog, Off the Beaten Path
