Paris-Roubaix Ultimate Test For ‘Intensive’ Road Tubeless

PARIS, France – This year’s Paris-Roubaix cobbled classic was the ultimate test for Hutchinson’s second tyre in the Road Tubeless category. Aside the already known 25 millimetre tube type version the 25 millimetre Road Tubeless pendant is now available to the public.

The French Team La Française des Jeux decided to mount an Intensive clincher version to avoid punctures on the wet cobblestones and rutted roads. Team director Martial Gayant was absolutely committed to the Intensive: “We knew that this type of course poses a challenge to all riders and their material and we’re glad to have chosen the perfect tyre for this race”.

FDJ rider Wesley Sulzberger added: “It’s amazing to not have any flat on a ride like this with this comfy tyre”.

“This was the culmination of six years of work on Road Tubeless”, said Norbert Gangloff, responsible for product innovation and team equipment relations at Hutchinson. “The Intensive performed as anticipated, the race highlighted the performance and comfort of the Intensive Road Tubeless on the cobbles as well as on asphalt. That’s why the Intensive is also great for urban cyclists who need a tyre to brave the elements and last a long time.”
