I've been a Hutchison tubeless fan for quite some time!

In my humble opinion, tubeless is the only way to fly, and not just for mountain bike wheels. Yes, it can be a little more difficult to install a road tubeless tire with the stiff bead, and pumping them up requires finesse. But....it is so worth it. A smooth ride and virtually no flat tires (knock on wood that I did not just jinx things). I used the Fusion 3 for several years and now the Hutchison Fusion 5. I cannot recommend them enough, and I will keep buying them. I generally ride the 28's, as I have grown to enjoy the comfort. I don't understand why more roadies don't ride tubeless, but to each his own. All I know is I am happy with these tires.

Comfortable but fragile

Easy to mount tubeless. I bought 2 of these and both had to be replaced within 150 miles because of bubbles developing in the outer casing. BD exchanged them quickly without any problems. I also experienced a lot of punctures-all sealed with sealant-but it punctures easily. They have a very comfortable ride, as close to a latex tubed clincher as I've experienced with a tubeless, and quite grippy. (I've ridden just about every tubeless road tire on the market for over 10 years of tubeless road riding). I won't be buying these again.

This is a very fast tire and handles nice as well.

I have about 1000 miles on my first pair .

The 700 x 25 mm version measure 27.3 mm on my Zipp 303 NSW rim brake wheels that have an inner bead to bead width of 19mm.

They mount with no tools and inflate with a hand pump, you need to sponge soapy water on the bead to make it easy to snap into the rim bead seat. ( this is on my Zipp 303 NSWs ).

I have weighed 3 of these at 238 - 245 grams .

Hutchinson have finally got a tire that competes on all levels with the best tubed clincher Tires.
