I picked up a tubeless ready wheel set and thought I would give road tubeless a try. I purchased a set of Hutchinson Fusion 3 tires and had nothing but trouble. Tire bulges and poor durability followed by slices, punctures, and sealant spilling everywhere. I was about to give up on tubeless when I came upon these tires. I've been riding them for months now without a single issue. If you pump them up to 100psi the ride quality is great and despite their weight, they seem to roll easily. I'm sold. IRC from now on. Four stars on the value because of the price.
