Hutchinson Sector Tubeless

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Hutchinson Sector Tubeless

My Bike Forums search foo is laking, and for that I ask forgiveness. When I search for "sector" I get way too many hits.

If anyone is running Hutchinson Sector Tubeless 700c tires, I'd love to hear what you think of them. I'm thinking of trying out a pair in 32mm. I'm running Specialized Roubaix Pros on two bikes. They're great for puncture resistance and they're long-wearing for sure, but they're not as fast as say GP4000 with tubes or GP5000 tubeless. Problem is, the Continentals just don't hold up well for me on my local shrapnel-laden roads.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.


-Matt

I've never used them. I heard basically the same thing you just said, and went with other tires.

I'm using IRC Road Light 28 mm tubeless. Very fast, I don't want to jinx myself, and they probably won't last terribly long.

That was my first set of tubeless tires, maybe 2 years ago - the selection was pretty limited back then and they were "fine". I like the schwalbe pro 1 that I have now better.

I used the Sector 32s on my bikes for a while but switched to the Specialized Roubaix Pros and then to Continental GP5000

How did the Sector 32s compare? I like the Roubaix Pros but they definitely have a bit more rolling resistance than I prefer. GP5000TL were fast, but too fragile.

Interesting. "Fine" is about where I would rate the Roubaix Pros. Downright excellent for puncture resistance, though.

IRC Formula Pro X-Guard (better grip in the wet than Hutchinson sectors, ... long life and roll better and excellent puncture protection)

But, apparently not a 32mm version.

Edited to mention they do look like they would be grippier in the wet, that's for sure.

My experience with narrow Hutchinson is limited to the Fusion, which was... fine. I would put them Maxxis Padrone > Schwalbe One > Hutchinson Fusion. All 700x25 in my use.

Now for wider, I would suggest you at least consider the new Pirelli Cinturato Velo. I've put about 550 miles on a pair of 700x35s (they also come in 700x32) and so far so good. Easiest to mount tubeless tire I've ever used, if that's worth anything. I'm not ready to give them the unanimous thumbs up yet, not enough mile logged for me (only been mounted about three and a half weeks.) But certainly worth a look.

+1

I didn't get great life out of mine, but I used them on gravel a lot.

I ride the roads and have been using Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels with Vittoria (320 tpi) tires. Recently went to Ksyrium Elite USTs. There's no going back. They are lighter, more comfortable and roll much more easily. Also easy to set up and pump up with a floor pump. BTW these are 25s. Totally sold on these.

Just to add more confusion, I'll throw out a left field recommendation for the Schwalbe G-One Speed (formerly known as the S-One). They're 30mm, they roll pretty well and haven't gotten torn to **** on questionable roads (I've had two catastrophic slashes on them in a three years of use, but no road tire would have survived either of those incidents). I don't know how firm you are on your 32mm desires, but I find these 30s to be really comfy, even when inflated to accommodate my post-winter girth (as high as 220 in years previous).

I second what he said about this tire. They can be expensive, but Merlin usually has a good deal.

Duuuude - awesome! I've been keeping an eye out for a decent price, but wasn't finding anything under ~$65 recently (except for onsie/twosies on ebay).

Back when I was running tubeless on my roadie I was using them in either 28 or 32mm...stopped as they were costing more than steel-belted-radial car tires.

BackCountry AKA CompetitiveCyclist has them "on sale" for a reasonable price ($55) ATM: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/h...NjQ2F0MTAwNDU5
