Schwalbe Ultremo Tubeless Road Tyres
I swapped from a set of mavics tyre & tube combo to a set of ultegras & tubeless Hutchinsion Fusion 3’s about 4 months ago,
I tried the Hutchinson Atoms as well but they come up really narrow when inflated so swapped back to the Fusions.
From my limited experience
1.the weight is about the same if you run harder wearing tyres/tubes for commuting/training purposes
2.they are heavier than light race slicks and race tubes.
3.they were a nightmare to get onto the rims, may just be this combination tho, one sealed first time, the other sealed after an hour
you do not need a lot of sealant either.
4.I haven’t had a single puncture in 4 months and i ride them rain or shine for comuting and training, everyday, approx 100-150 miles a week.
5.i run them at about 90psi so they are a little more comfy than my previous higher psi road combo and they do seem to roll very well.
Overall pretty pleased with them, the tubeless tyres on offer are pretty limited in choice but for everyday duties they seem to do the job well and anything that stops me changing a tyre my commute is very welcome.Posted 4 years agowhatnobeerMember
Is it just a comfort thing so you can run lower pressures?
Lower pressures so more comfortable and supposedly will roll better, no chance of pinch punctures and small cuts can be sealed when using sealant.
Downsides are they slightly heavier than a lightweight clincher/tube combo, not a big range of tyres and they can be an arse to get on and off the rims. Haven’t had any problems with them sealing though.Posted 4 years agoTiRedMember
Was thinking of ordering a set for some new aero wheels. That was until the non structural carbon fairings filled with water in last nightsPosted 4 years ago
jet washdownpour. Had to remove the tyres and tubes and drain past the rim tape! That would be hard with tubeless. Might try them on my kysrium elite’s, though.
I did use the “find a dealer” function on the Schwalbe website but it returned 0 results 🙁 Mate of mine is a local Schwalbe dealer but he’s in Morzine at the moment! 90 EUR delivered sounded OK to me though. Normal Ultremo ZX are my current (and favourite) road tyre, so hoping that the tubeless ones will be just as good – possibly even better due to the slightly lower pressure!Posted 4 years ago
Fitted the tyres without a problem (although they were pretty tight) last night and inflated them no hassle with a track pump. They held pressure right away even before putting the sealant in. Basically the perfect, pain-free tubeless setup, much easier than any MTB tyre I’ve done! Air still in this morning as well. Not ridden them yet though!Posted 4 years ago
