Description

Out of this world.

When updating its Fusion 3 tire lineup for 2016, the French rubber masters over at Hutchinson chose to skip straight past four and instead christen their new line Fusion 5. The move is actually in reference to the five characteristics they feel a tire needs to exhibit to achieve the best ride quality: grip, rolling performance, durability, puncture resistance, and comfort. Among the Fusion 5 line, the Galactik Tubeless Tire occupies the upper echelon, representing the thinnest, most pared-down option for race-day speed and outstanding grip with its HDF>5.1 compound and lighter reinforcement.

Though the Fusion 5 line does include an all-season tire option for more consistently challenging conditions, the Galactik is more than capable of managing its share of imperfect shoulders and road grit in a race, maintaining a low rolling resistance with a 127 TPI casing that's lightly reinforced with nylon protection to create a plush ride with a touch of added durability. It's ready for tubeless set-up, so you'll gain all the confidence-inspiring benefits of running sans tubes, such as better grip and self-sealing peace of mind.

Not very Durable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As the other reviewers have stated, these tires just don't last. I have been through three or four rear tires, normal riding, and the sealant (Orange) is routinely spewing out of even the smallest holes or being cut by debris I can't find on clean paths.. Since I have only recently switched to tubeless, I attributed it to incorrect pressure or a defect, but it has happened repeatedly now at various pressures and riding surfaces. I guess I need to spend more/switch brands to receive the durability I am looking for?

Gary, I used to be an Orange fan myself, but had a similar repeated problem with another tire. After switching to a more viscous sealant (Slime), I haven’t had a cut that wasn’t quickly sealed.

flawed by design

DO NOT purchase these tires. I have had them mounted tubeless on Zipp hoops and both front and back have developed several strange bubbles in the casing. This puts me at risk of a catastrophic blow out. This is clearly a design/engineering flaw and Hutchinson needs to pull these from the market ASAP.

Are your Zipp hoops Road Tubeless? I think not. Tubeless tires mounted on tubeless wheels do not blow out.

Pretty good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Never had any problems with these tires.

I did about 500 miles with them; lots of km' s on cobbles, some gravelroads and not one flat.. great grip.

Will Not Last!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have purchased about five pairs of Hutchinson tubeless tires, Fusion 3's and the new Fusion 5's. I am now looking for another brand. This tire will cut on every single small rock, or even on regular pavement. I had one blister and come apart. There is also fine lines/cracks that are not caused by debris. I love my Conti's for this very reason but can't find a suitable tubeless...yet. They just don't last more than a couple of months. Put some on my wife's bike, same thing. Had to revert back to tube and a specialized tire for a recent ride because we were afraid the Hutchinson would fail..again. She had sealant spraying out of a tiny hole on her last ride up the National Monument. I've been riding/racing a long time, I know what I'm doing, and am a careful rider. Stay away from these. I only went through five pair because I thought it might have been a defect. It's not. The rubber is just way to soft. Listen to the other posts as well. I believe them.

Same experience Fusion 3- blowout in the reinforced running surface of the tire (front!) while riding on a protected paved bike trail with no debris. Inspection of tire indicated no foreign mater, just outward blowout. Tire had approx 30% of tread left. The Fusion 5 advertises less reinforcement- I'm done with Fusions.

no way

    There is no way that tire was cut that bad by just riding along. That looks more like a tire that's been abused.

    Are you referring to my post? That's from normal riding. No joke. They were on my 2016 S-Works Di2... not exactly a bike I'd willingly abuse.

    That's not a cut, and I never said that it was. It was a catastrophic failure of the casing. The blowout occurred at a near standstill in the parking lot. The excessive cuts/punctures and the blowout are separate incidents but all indications of a truly shitty tire.

    Sees glass, cuts itself.

    Spectacularly bad tire. The worst I've ever tried. In 900 miles I've had ten punctures on the pair. The last straw was a catastrophic multiple blowout on the rear. Look at the picture. It's shredded like that in multiple places. It's terrifying. This is on the very same roads I've put tens of thousands of miles on with zero flats on other tires.

    I've been running these tubeless and the Stan's managed to do the job at first, but these have so many cuts beyond salvaging, I've given up and am running tubes.

    Stay away.

    On the plus side, they would probably good if you ride in a hermetically sealed clean room though. Go for it.

    Sees glass, cuts itself.

    Wow. Staying away from those. My last pair of tubeless tires lasted literally 5 thousand miles. Thanks for the update on these tires.

    Mine did the same thing after 300 miles.
