700 x 23 Hutchinson Fusion 5 Performance
The R&D team at Hutchinson really put everything they had into this one so we better get serious for a minute. The new Fusion 5 is the culmination of 2 years in development with 105 compound combination trials, 80,000 miles (nearly 130,000km) on test benches, and 21,000 miles (34,000km) on the bike. This tyre is at the pinnacle of road tyre technology.
The Fusion 5 Performance models are constructed using Hutchinson's HDF 5.2 rubber compound developed with the aim of offering a perfect compromise between compound thickness and puncture resistance. The compound hits a middle ground between the Fusion 5 Galactik and the Fusion 5 All Season with a 1.2mm thickness. It also includes a Kevlar Pro Tech reinforcement layer to protect against punctures.
This 700 x 23 version features a 127 TPI casing with a folding bead and weighs in at 190 grams.
A fantastic tyre for competitors who want to ride the best and for day to day cyclists that don't want to choose between durability and performance.
