The tire that started the Road Tubeless movement enters its next generation as the Fusion 3.

Road tubeless systems make it possible to run lower pressure without pinch flats. A tire with lower pressure better conforms around imperfections in the road, limiting precious speed and energy loss. A higher pressure tire tends to bounce off imperfections causing a force away from the direction of motion. The Fusion 3 boasts a triple rubber compound for fast rolling durability on straights and progressive grip on corners. A Kevlar anti-puncture belt provides reliable protection without excessive weight, and a 127 TPI casing ensures a responsive ride quality.

The Fusion 3 is available in 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO) and 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO). Tubeless folding bead. Actual weight: 332g. Designed for use with tubeless compatible rims.

I have been riding Fusion tires since 2006 - love them!
by bcasinger

I have been riding Shimano Dura Ace tubeless wheels and Fusion tires since they first came out in 2006. Since my very first set I was hooked, and have ridden almost nothing else until the Secteur tires came out. In fact, I am still riding the original wheel, and just threw away one of my first tires! Over the years that tire had been punctured 2 times...but I added more sealant and kept on rolling. Besides the ride and convenience of almost never having a flat in 8 years, safety is a huge factor with tubeless tires. The last time this tire lost air it was mounted on my front wheel, and I was going down a steep hill at 41 mph. I thought it felt a little squishy, but kept riding with the group for awhile and finally asked someone to look at the tire for me. He said my tire was completely flat, so I needed to pull over. I filled it with a can of Fast-Air, and rode it for another 6 months. When I used to ride tubed tires I had a couple of similar blowouts, with the tire coming off the rim and me flying across pavement in the Superman pose! Long story, but tubeless tires are much safer and I will ride nothing else. I have just recently gone to bigger 25-28c tubeless tires and love them even more, since I weigh 210 lbs.

Now in 25c!

Got these because they are truly 25c in size. First used on Easton EA90 rims, later on some 25mm wide carbon rims. Easy, straight seat in on both, tubeless, with sealant. Compared to Fusion 3 in 23c size,they are noticeably wider and more cushy at any given pressure, not quite as cushy as Sector 28s, but smoother than Intensives. Oddly, they weighed in 10g (each) heavier than the fatter Sector 28s. Despite that and how much I like the Sectors,they may be the best clincher tires I have ever used. They seem as fast as 23s, but better ride on wider rims under my 160. No flats, of course, and near tubular ride and handling without fear of broken bottles or pavement edges. I'll ride these until spring on our trashy, gravelly, broken N.M. roads and love every mile.

Does what their suppose to do for the money.
by G. Lupien

I had reservations about going tubeless due to the name sayers but, after 500 miles and no punctures yet, I am pretty satisfied. No flats yet so we'll see...They roll effortlessly with 90 lbs front and 95 rear.

I do check air pressure every couple of days as they do as all tires do loose air.

Great tubeless tire.
by Anonymous

I've been using these for the last three years with about 20k miles.

I think I've had three flats in that time and all three were when I ran them until they were paper thin and then ran through glass. Only one didn't seal up with the sealant.

Set up easier than some of the others I've tried.

The center seam on this tire split after a few rides for no apparent reason.

I put this tire on my wife's bike, and after a few rides the center seam split while she was riding along a flat section of road, miles from home. The split was not caused by any road hazard, and was two-plus inches long, center of the tire. The tube blew out immediately. Fortunately my wife was able to stop without incident. This ruined the ride, however, because the split was too long for a boot, and we did not trust the rest of the tire anyway.

Great tire for 300 miles then sidewall becomes susceptible to too many flats

My first experience with tubeless road tires not great. Just too many blowout flats. They do seal and will hold 50lbs to get home but it gets expensive for the sake of a comfortable ride. After 3 tires in less than a 1000 miles I switched to Secour 28 mil. Only 200 miles on them so far.

Smooth rolling tires

Just switched from 23mm to 25mm. Improvement in ride quality was much greater than I expected (on Fulcrum R1 2WF wheels). Still a chore to get on the rim - use soapy water to lubricate 2nd bead while getting it on the rim, and again around sides to seat the beads.

The tires are terrific IF mounted properly. They hold air for days, and run beautifully at surprisingly low pressures. They have a great road feel, just this side of tubulars, and much nicer than any clinchers I've ever ridden.

Fusion 3 25mm just like the fusion 3 23mm bit wider and that is a good thing. Well made ride nicely and hold air well. For some reason they seem to mount easier than the 23mm. Be nice if they were cheaper.

I live in an area where the roads are pretty rough. Other tires failed frequently. I am now on my second set of Fusion 3's after the first gave up at about the 3000 mile point. Great performance out of these tires over that time. Only one flat which was a severe puncture anyway, no tire would have survived it. I also put a set on my wife's bike and she can ride without worry of changing a flat. The fact that I bought them again should say it all.

Not a good tire.
by leroy

I could not get this tubeless tire to hold air. I used sealer during the original application of the tire to rim. Initially seemed okay, only to have the tire go soft within 48 hrs. This has not been my experience with other tubeless tires. I submerged the wheel to find diffuse leaks of air over nearly the entire tire. I put a tube into the tire until I could get a replacement, which solved the problem. I have thought highly of a previous purchase of a tubular Hutchinson tire, but this product is not up to standand and I would not purchase another. I replaced with a Maxxis Padrone and the issue is solved.

Smooth ride, but set up could be easier

I've got two pair - on Fulcrum Racing Zero's and Shamal Ultra's. They're a pain to mount, although leaving them in the sun for half an hour or so helps. Getting the sealant in can be a messy proposition. But once that's done, the ride simply can't be beat. I run about 95 psi and I seem to be about .5 to 1 mph faster than on regular clinchers. And the ride is much smoother. Cornering is above average. Durability is only average. One of my rear tires blew sealant all over the frame. I can't find the leak and the tire still holds air. All in all I recommend them, just beware of the set-up

I've been using Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless Road Tires on Fulcrum 1 2-way fit wheels for over couple years. Never had a flat while using them and I log 4000 milesyear. I ride them at 90-95 psi. I don't use any messy tire sealant and carry tubes and patches in case I get a flat. The ride quality is great and using a tubeless tire at lower pressures helps on the rough tar&chip roads. I change the tires every year. Wish they were less expensive but I love the feeling I'll never get a pinch flat which tend to be common for others on some of our pothole abundant roads.

I hated this with first tire installed. Was the most difficult tire I ever installed. Then I watched the video on the stans site. Pretty easy on tire 2. Watch the video first instead of reading the instructions. Ride is soo much smoother. About 1100 miles on them now, wearing very well. Ride in areas that required gatorskins(flatted often) and specialized armadillo(still flatted ave 1month). Have not flatted yet, have ridden on gravel and over blackberry vines-very impressive.

I'm into road racing and hill climbs. This tire is fantastic for that purpose and all the related training that goes along with this type of road cycling. My recent purchase was actually my second set of Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless Tires. I put a little over 3000 miles on my first set before calling them worn out. While I use tire sealant, I've never had a flat on these tires. They're also great on fast, tight curve descents as well. The rubber grabs the road well, even when the pavement is wet. I like to joke that there is nothing finer than the sound of rubber on pavement as you scream through the tight corners of a mountain descent. And this tire does that well. I'll definitely be buying a third set in another 3000 miles or so. The only downside, and this seems to be true for all tubeless tires, is the difficult task of initially mounting the tires on the rims. You'll definitely need to have a compressor to initially inflate the tires. At least that's been my experience. Even still, I'm a tubeless convert, and the Hutchinson Fusion 3 Tubeless are the tires for me.
