The Hutchinson Intensive fills in the gap for Road Tubeless users wanting a longer lasting and more durable tire. It is great for races where the road gets rough or for long training sessions especially thanks to its 25mm width. Road Tubeless has held strong since its introduction by allowing riders to run lower pressure without pinch flats for a more comfortable, grippy, and conforming ride feel. The Intensive uses a thermoplastic reinforced compound that extends wear life considerably without sacrificing grip. Hardskin layer prevents punctures and sidewall cuts. Carbon reinforced beads ensure a tight tubeless fit. 127 TPI casing furthers the supple road feel. Color: Black. 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO). 322 gram average weight.

Exceeded my Expectations- Very Smooth Ride

First foray into road tubeless. Purchased on sale- and exceeded my expectations. Great feel and comfort at 95 PSI. Would purchase again- only rationale for four stars on value is that I have only two months on this pair.

Tubeless Tires Provide a SWEET Ride!

I first discovered tubeless tires (and have ONLY used these) since I ran into a set of Shimano Wheels at a good price from another online retailer. I had a cycling partner who had also been researching tubeless tires. They seemed expensive at first...but after mounting and riding the first 25 miles, I became a devotee. They ride so nicely, sing the road to you, corner beautifully at high speeds, and the flat resistance is awesome! Granted they are a bear to mount, it can be a bit messy with the liquid sealant process during mounting (get the stems and adapter so you can add the sealant after the tire is fully mounted), and you do need a compressor to get the first seal (no compressor? Go to a bike shop for help in mounting). But wow...is it worth it!

Roll well, comfy, confident in cornering and decending.

I have these on my Campy Shamal Ultras 2way fit wheels. I have the Fusion 3's and wanted to try the Intensives for some comfort. They do feel comfy and I can't tell the difference in rolling with the Fusion 3's. They aren't 25mm though. I put a micrometer to them inflated to 120 and they barely reach 23mm wtf! That aside, I like them a lot. I had my first front flat at 95 miles from a goat head thorn on the side/top. I pulled it out and the sealant worked perfectly, sealing the hole inside of 5 seconds. It went from 100 lbs to 60 lbs air durning the flat.

All in all I feel very confident on decents and cornering with these and just the thought of no pinch flats or heat flats makes me one happy guy. My experience with the air loss issue is about 10 lbs after 72 hours with sealant. I don't find that a problem though,as I usually air up before every ride. I don't know what rims the other reviewers are using who are experinceing massive air loss, perhaps it is not mounting the tires on tubless specific rims.

Great tubeless tires.

These are great, very durable tires. I have used these tires on Campy Shamals and more recently Enve 2.2's - both rims are made for tubeless. These are my every day tires. Let's talk about mounting - hard, no doubt, especially on the Enves. Best to do on hot day - put the tires out and let them and rims get hot. I always use soapy water on the tires and rims and a pair of Mechanix wear gloves on my hands. After mounting, I first inflate with air to 110 psi and let the bead set, back off to 20 to 40 psi, roll the wheel on the ground, and reinflate. With Enves, you will probably need a compressor, although I have mounted using a floor pump. If you have done it right, they will hold air without sealant for at least a day or so. After setting the bead, I fill with Orange Seal - I think this is the best I have used to date (used Stans, CaffeLatex, Hutchinson, etc.). Once I have filled with sealant, it take a few rides and a few days, but after that, the tires will hold air quite well. I mounted a set on my Enves and have over 3000 miles on this season, with no flats (but with some punctures that were filled by the Orange Seal). I always try (the word here is try) and clean the tires with a wet rag after a ride. I then inspect them and fill any cuts and holes, etc. with Super Glue. I weigh 190 - so I inflate to 90 psi on the back, 80 on the front, ride feels very good and responsive (although I think Hutchinson Fusions are more responsive). The tires are pricey (and BTW Biketiresdirect, I think your price is wee too high for these tires). For best results, my experience says (1) use rims designed for tubeless tires, (2) take care and effort in mounting, (3) use Orange Seal, (4) fill cuts and holes with Super Glue (do this with any tire), and (5) carry the Hutchinson Fast Air sealant when you ride. This stuff will fix most punctures and at least get you home.

Smooth riding and surpisingly fast

Very smooth and surprisingly fast- I have ridden as low as 90 psi and they were revelatory. I installed them on two bikes. So far- wearing very well.

Never Hutchinson again

I'll never buy Hutchinson again. Bought 2 HIntensive tires and failed to convert wheels successfully to a tubeless setup. Then I just kept them in storage for a few years. Then I had a proper tubeless wheel and checked these tires and found they both had cracks on the sidewall (next to bead) almost 360 degrees around. Eventually I did mount one and found that it was too easy to cut. Definitely one of the worst tires I've used or at least tried to use.

Can't recommend road tubeless

I purchased a set of Hutchinson Intensives to go with my new Stan's Notubes Grail wheelset and was hoping to get the advantages of going tubeless on my road bike. First few hundred miles things were OK, but I hit something in the road 50 miles into a 100 mile ride and the front tire spewed sealant all over. I quickly rotated the tire puncture point to the bottom of the wheel and it eventually sealed up, but I couldn't add much more than 40 psi in the tire or the sealant would start spitting out again, but made it home, worrying the entire time that I'd roll the tire off the rim on any downhill turns.

My first thought was I just had bad luck and the puncture was bigger than the sealant could handle, so I used a Hutchinson tubeless patch on it, but that just ended up bulging and breaking through and wouldn't hold more that 40 or 45 psi either, this happened on another 100 mile ride, and I had to hobble home for 25 miles with a tire with only about 40 psi in it.

So my second thought was that the puncture was too big even for the patch, and the rear tire seemed to be holding up, so I tossed the first tire and bought another.

But, after about 1k miles the rear started getting a bump on the tread, and I could see that there was a small puncture that the sealant had sealed. Well, the sealant worked on a small puncture, but why is the tread bulging? I kept riding and the bump kept getting bigger until I could hear the bump as the tire spun around, and sealant would ooze out of the puncture, so I pulled the tire off and noticed that the tread was separating from the outer and inner layers with sealant getting pushed up into the bump. So I cleaned it all up and used another tubeless patch, but the bulge came back and the small puncture hole started to tear open and the patch started bulging through and eventually sealant started spewing out again and it couldn't seal the puncture that was now too large.

So now I've got over $270 invested in tubeless tires, one already tossed out and another on its way out, so I put another tubeless patch over the puncture and put a tube in it hoping I'd get a few miles out of it but the tube started bulging out of the tire through the patch and I flatted out on the road and had to have my wife pick me up since the tire was now irreparable. That's now two tubeless tires down.

I replaced the rear with a tubed tire from another bike, but I was training to do a double century and couldn't afford to have a puncture that wouldn't seal or hold 100 psi during the ride so I pulled off the front tire and put a tubed tire on. I did my double century with no flats. I've thrown out two tubeless tires with maybe 500 on one, and 1k miles on the other, and now have one tubeless tire that I just can't rely on to use.

Roll great but a huge pain to mount

Once their on, these tires roll extremely well. While they state that they are 25c, they look a bit narrower however they are noticeably wider than a 23c. So call them a 24.

Mounting these tires on the Dura Ace tubeless rims is not easy and after losing several layers of skin and breaking a few tire levers I finally took them down to my LBS to mount and add sealant, etc. My advice is to just have your LBS do it to begin with and you'll save yourself some pain and frustration.

Flat, What Is A Flat?

I'm on my second set of Intensives since I published my first review on 8/8/2012. Since that review I have had no flats and that includes riding the summer roads in Portland and the winter roads in Arizona. I've learned to trust them on 38mph descents and unforeseen potholes. No surprises in the corners. I tip the scales at 220 and I've been running them at 110psi. I read recently that running at high air pressures cause them to bounce, compromising the rolling resistance. (At 110 psi they do bounce on the bumps). I'm going to try them at 100psi and see how they feel. They deserve 5 stars for trouble free reliability in all conditions. Really impressive.

Excellent in every respect - easy rolling, soft ride, durable

Daily use - both club rides and commuting. Love the soft feel and easy roll but especially appreciate the puncture resistance and durability - no flats with over 3,000 miles on them. There is nothing I dislike about this product except the cost.

Awesome tire!

This tire is awesome. Its on older American Classic tubeless converted wheels. Its tough, provides good grip in dry or wet conditions. I always liked the idea of tubeless tires but was a little skeptical in rim converting kits. After converting the wheels and with the help of a little soapy water, the tire installation was pretty easy. I use sealant with these tires and to this day, I have not come close to a flat! Im extremely surprised by the ease of use and the ride quality of this product. It's a little expensive but the tubeless system and practically no flats to worry about out ways the cost.

Jury Still Out

My Krysium R-SYS wheel developed a crack at a spoke so I replaced the set with Easton EA90 RT tubeless rims and these tires. I've got two short rides in for 40 miles. At 90psi the tires absorb bumps like a shock absorber on a car. To me, comfortable but a little too mushy. The Krysium's with Conti GP 4000's rode harder and handled like a laser. The Hutchinson is less twitchy. Bumped the air up to 95psi. Still feels a little on the soft side and slower than the Krysiums. I'm taking them up to 105 lbs. next. I was not that unhappy with the way the Krysium's rode at 110psi. I appreciate the ride quality of the tubeless but I don't ride gravel or cobblestones so they don't need to be too soft. Hopefully the bump in psi will turn the trick although they may wear a bit quicker. No flats so far but not enough miles on them yet to comment on that.

Tubeless is Sublime

I'm about 155 lbs. I'm going 70f80r psi wno problems. I could go lower. Excellent cornering. You will not think about bumps in the road the same way after you try tubeless.

Say good-bye to flats! This is the best tubeless tire yet.

I have been using Hutchinson's tubeless road tires on my road bike for a couple of years now. I haven't got a flat in months and I'm very happy with their performance. I don't plan on ever going back to tubes again!

A performance ride with durability.

I have mounted the tires on Dura Ace road tubeless rims and use with Caffelatex sealant. The tires are used year-round in Seattle on wet, dirty roads and they have performed well over 3,000 miles and still have many miles left before replacement. You can see small cuts and debris embedded in the tire and no flats or leaks. I run the tires at 95 psi according to the manufacturer's specifications.

How bad do you need the extra durability?

Ride notes I have these set up tubeless on Dura-ace 7850's, 2 oz of Stan's sealant, and PSI 80lbs, Any higher and the ride is quite harsh and grip suffers. I weigh 175lbs

When it comes to tires, there are always two things in tension Durability vs Comfort. You can usually get one or the other, but not both. These tires are durable, but they ride fairly harsh compared with the other Hutchinson tubeless offerings. If you are flatting with the Atom's or Fusion 3's, then come on in...the water is fine. But I ran the Atoms all year without one flat, and they feel softer, grippier, and of course snappier. I purchased these because the Atoms were out of stock, and now I wish I would have waited...I miss the ride more than I value the extra durability.

4 stars because the tire targets durability, and they hit the mark. They are extremely difficult to mount. Flats are non existent, however, if I flatted I would seriously consider calling the wife for a dust off before I broke out the tire levers...

Converted a Mavic Open Pro to Tubeless

I converted a Mavic Open Pro rim to tubeless using an Intensive tire, Stan's No-Tubes rim tape and their valve stem. I put 2 oz of Stan's sealant in the tire.

Seems to work great so far. I don't have that many miles yet to make any profound declarations.

I've ridden the Fusion 2's and now Fusion 3's for three years now for races and special events and now I think I'm going all tubeless, using these Intensives for regular street use. I'll be converting more of my wheels to tubeless as it comes time to change tires.
