Mountain bikers have been embracing tubeless tires for years, but roadies have been a little bit slower to leave their tubes behind. Whatever the reason, tubeless technology is now almost too good to resist, and Hutchinson's Fusion 3 Tubeless Road Tire is a tough, light, and reliable tubeless offering that's perfect for riding on rough roads. Why is the Fusion 3 better on bumpy roads' Because its supple and firm 127 TPI casing lets you ride at lower pressures, which conforms to the road and absorbs bumps rather than skipping off them like a traditional road tire, which actually slows you down. Hutchinson also designed the Fusion 3 with a carbon bead, rather than traditional Kevlar, which sits more strongly on your rim to prevent burps and pinch flats. The triple compound rubber is highly durable, with softer side sections for grip and a harder, smoother center section for fast rolling, race winning speed.
