Here’s what French tyre company Hutchinson has been up to. Nothing earth-shattering, but a quiet rounding out of its tyre line, and the introduction of a more trail-friendly Squale downhill tyre.
The Squale is its downhill tyre that it’s been developing along with its downhill team. The tyre now comes in a 2.3in size as well as the existing 2.5in size. For all Hutch tyres, tyres over 2.3in now has a triple compound, with 50a centre knobs and 42a outer knobs – but with firmer, 60a rubber underneath to support the knobs when cornering.
Hutchinson has rounded out its range of 27.5in treads with the Cougar, the Toro, Cobra – adding the Python, Squale and more to the range.
