The world beating Hutching Fusion 3 X-Light 700c Folding Tyre features a 3-compound tread to optimise durability, acceleration and corning grip with a competition style slick profile. Hutchinson's Kevlar-Protect anti-puncture reinforcement is a soft, very dense 100% Kevlar belt with the enhanced durability from a thermoplastic reinforced tread compound makes it a great all weather tyre. Like the Atom Comp X-Light, The Hutchinson Fusion 3 X-Light tyre is built for greater efficiency, reduced resistance and lighter weight.
The 3-compund technology enables three rubbers with different properties to be used together to help get the best from tyre. The 3 different rubber compounds are hard, intermediate and soft. The Hard rubber in used on the centre of the tyre for increased durability and resistance to cuts and abrasion while also providing low rolling resistance. The intermediate rubber is used for grip and acceleration in corners and soft lateral rubber offers unequalled grip to insure absolute confidences in the corners when taking them at speed.
