Hutchinson have launched a superlight tubeless ready version of their Toro cross-country tyre. It weighs in at 530g for the 26in version and 750g for 29ers.
Tested by the the Orbea Team and Olympic champion Julien Absalon, the Toro Tubeless Ready has Hardskin sidewall reinforcement and a low-profile but surprisingly grippy tread.
Hutchinson say: “Available in 26in and 29in dimensions, the Toro Tubeless Ready is ideal for all-around use. Open side knobs hang on in the turns, while the knobs on top deliver an efficient overall ride. Add Hardskin reinforcement to the mix and you have a very light yet tough tyre.”
