Sector 32 Tire

Races don't always take place on the smoothest stretches of tarmac around, and often, they're better for it. Of course, the French rubbermasters at Hutchinson are already aware of that; graced with arguably the greatest of the Spring Classics in their own backyard, they know what it takes to race, not simply ride, the famed cobbles between a certain two French cities. Though we all don't have the luxury of racing the Classics every year, our own Fondos, gravel races, and training rides can be wrought with rough, unpredictable road surfaces.

When you need to power through courses that test your bike handling and strength, make sure you're sitting atop Hutchinson's ultralight Sector 32 Tire. It won't give you Boonen's unparalleled legs or the ability to jump over fallen riders à la Sagan, but this dual-compound, high-TPI tire will keep you rolling quickly and with control over terrain that aims to drag you down. Whether you're on a lithe endurance frame or an energetic gravel grinder, the Sector 32's Hardskin protection will encourage you to barrel into tricky spots and rail tight corners with the reassurance that this race tire was made for the rough stuff.

  • Embrace rough race courses and gravel rides with this tire
  • 32mm width ideal for endurance, commuter, or gravel frames
  • Dual-compound construction delivers both grip and speed
  • Hardskin protection shields against flats and punctures
  • High TPI and low weight suit the Sector for racing
  • Tubeless-ready construction requires Protect'Air MAX sealant

I'm running these tubeless on Vision Metron carbon rims after previously running Maxxis Refuse. The Refuse went over 3,000 miles as a rear tire and was flawless until it was completely worn. The Hutchinson has a smaller profile and does not seal on the rim nearly as well. I frequently find it deflated prior to a ride and have to reseal it/inflate it. Once sealed/inflated, it's fine on the ride, but not the most confidence inspiring.

Great tire

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Bought these for my gravel bike put on my DT Swiss 1850 wheel set. These are replacing my Schwalbe 40c knobbies and the difference is like a dream. These are wide enough to still have some traction in the sand but smooth enough to feel efficient on the road. Install was simple for tubeless (no soap) just for the site dry, inflated to check the seal, injected the sealant through the valve core and reinflated. Used these for about 300 miles so far on varied terrain without issue. Traction on corners is superb on the road and thee ride overall is supple. I’m 85kg and running 65psi without issue.

Great gravel tire

I use these on my commute which includes a couple of miles of sand/gravel. I got over 5000 miles out of them and zero flats. I tried the 28mm width and found they were too narrow to float well on sand, and were much less grippy in hard braking situations. Going back to the 32mm Sectors once I wear current tires out.

Perfect!

I rarely work on my own bikes, usually using LBS, but these tires went on easily by hand without tools (I'm running them tubeless). They hold air very well thus far. I've only ridden about 300 miles on them thus far, and I am very pleased. They are narrower and much lighter than the tires I replaced.

what's the recommended psi for these?

It would be mostly dependent on riding conditions, rim width, and the weight with all of your gear on. Maximum I would put in those would be 60psi.

Concur with Greg Celantano below. Your best starting point is that pressure which allows 15% drop of rim to road under load. Here is a good article now dated, from 2006 before road tubeless. https://bikesportbicycles.com/wp-content/uploads/docs/TireDrop-OptimizingTirePressure.pdf Use the graph. This is a starting point. For tubeless you can go a bit lower. I've ridden exclusively road tubeless 7 years variety of rims and tires, (>30,000 mi, usual frequency of punctures but all sealed spontaneously). At my 135 lbs body weight for tire/rim setups giving actual tire width in 30-32mm range I like 60 psi rear, 50 front. For rough chip seal and for gravel can go 10% lower. If you have rims wider than 21x622 you might also go lower, even for smooth surfaces. Higher pressures will ruin ride comfort, cause tires to lose grip cornering on bumpy pavement, increase # of punctures, delay sealing of punctures, and also increase rolling resistance as your bike/body mass bounces up on every tiny vibration from coarse tarmac.

Favorite tire

Familiarity:

These tires are exceptional. Fast rolling, supple feel, easy to set up tubeless. I love everything about these tire. I've run a dozen different gravel tires but find these Hutchinsons to be the best. They are light, tough and fast. Everyone is obsessed with 40c gravel tires, but a 32 slick is so much faster. These are best of all the slicks I have tried. I like them so much I got some 28s for my road bike for off season.

BWR here I come

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These installed easily on my Hed Belgium+ rims and hold air very well with 2 Oz of Stan's. I took these out on a 30 mile dirt road with pretty significant scattered rocks over typical Las Vegas "gravel road". Decent traction and more importantly- no flats. Ran at 65 psi. Plush and fast on the road.

How wide do these measure on the Belgium+ rims?

I tried Gatorskin 32mm and they almost fit my rim brake Synapse but rubbed slightly within the brake arms. I heard Gatorskins fit large relative to stated size, so I'm searching for a "small" fitting 32mm tire that's not ultralight. Tubeless or tubed is fine but tubeless better. Suggestions based on actual experience fitting?

I agree that Continentals I have tried seem to fit 'large' (certainly relative to Vittorias) . On that basis have you considered a 'wide' 28mm - eg Conti 28mm (4-seasons / 4000SII depending on criteria for endurance etc) Good luck in your search

I think Mavic tires fit true to size, but why not go down to a large 28c and be in the same spot as a small 32c?
