Description

Taking tubeless to new heights.

As one of the first tire brands to fully embrace road tubeless, Hutchinson once again ups the ante with its new ElevenSTORM compound and the Tubeless Fusion 5 Galactik ElevenSTORM Road Tire offers even greater mileage, less rolling resistance, better puncture resistance, lower weight, and enhanced grip so you'll be in total control whether that's descending a steep canyon road during a spring shower or hitting the last corner of a crit at full gas in July's triple digits. These are pretty lofty claims from Hutchinson, however, with its experience and access to technical materials, it instills our confidence that the ElevenStorm compound is the real deal and the first few rides have been very favorable.

Probably what impresses us the most with the ElevenSTORM compound is its ability to let us race and train on the same set of tires as they can handle the long training mileage and aren't fragile like most event specific rubber. Besides not having the burden of swapping out tires, it allows us to get used to the handling characteristics and adapt to its rolling resistance so power data on race day matches that during training. Anytime we can install something on our bikes that requires less energy to go faster and further without tradeoffs is a plus in our book.

This particular version of the Fusion 5 Galactik is designated as a road tubeless tire, further bolstering the ElevenSTORMS' compound by adding the benefits of more traction and comfort at lower pressures, as well as self-sealing reassurance when paired with sealant, should you run over small shards of glass or pesky goatheads. It's reinforced with a Lightskin nylon shield underneath the tread that helps prevent punctures and cuts for greater peace of mind on the open road.

Poor Quality Tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I Switched from Gatorskins to try the Hutchison Fusion 5 Tubeless Tires because they were to be puncture resistant and I'm getting ready for Full Triathlon with 116 miles of biking. I put the new tires on and road on them twice before discarding them. They punctured within the first 30 miles in at least two locations, including the center of the tire where I would expect the tire or puncture protection to be the thickest. The good news was that the sealant did seal the holes so I finished my 65 mile second ride on the tires. My tire was down to about 20 psi a couple days later. Maybe the seal would continue to hold, but with multiple punctures within the first 75 miles, the tires are not worth using. I switched back to the used Gatorskins. Even with a couple thousand miles on them, they are a better tire.

Nice tires, but not 25mm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These tires are much easier to mount than a lot of tubeless tires, and will seat with a floor pump or CO2 cartridge (hint: soap and water the rim before inflating and it goes much better). BUT, these look like 23mm tires, not 25, so I measured with a caliper and indeed the width is 23.6mm. So the ride isn't quite as chill as I expected compared with my 25mm Schwalbe's that these replaced

Tubeless done right

    Some of the previous annoyances about road tubeless tires previously were that they were near impossible to set up tubeless, and if for whatever reason there was a need for roadside tire change it was insanely difficult to get off the rim. Hutchinson has addressed both of these things with their new line of tubeless tires and i've been very pleasantly surprised so far. Set up was super easy, and just for kicks i removed the tire from the wheel and it seemed no harder than a normal clincher tire. With tubeless tires you can run a lot lower pressures than you normally would as there is no tube to pinch. I normally run about 95 PSI with clincher tires but air all the way down to 75-80 PSI which makes for a super smooth ride. I'd put these in the same category as the bench mark for road tubeless tires, Schwalbe One, in terms of quality.
