Strengths:    Light, Accurate UST bead (floor pump mount is easy), good all around tread pattern. Hutchinson FastAir works great if you follow instructions. Great front tire on 29er but it is narrow. I wish they had 2.3 for front, and this 2.1 could be rear winter tire. Hardskin seems cool-we will see. As a single speed tire I like lightweight tubeless ready setup.

Weaknesses:    very thin on XT rims. You will get a narrower tire than you thought you paid for, and you WILL pay if retail. I don't think this is optimal for gear bikes or full squish where you could use larger volume for more aggressive riding. Great for weight weenies.

Bottom Line:   
I posted this review after only 3-4 rides, so will repost later. I think they dropped the ball on the sizing as my 2.1 measures 1 15/16 inches-damn frogs and their metric system. A 2.3 would be sweet. I like the tire but the value is bad as retail is $55 and rubber soft and wears fast ( I like the soft rubber ). Tubeless setup is awesome. Fast tire for knob style. Holds great on leaf covered trails and loamy forest soil.

Strengths:    Really grips the trail well during climbs. Front tire has great traction in the twisties. I ride all variations of trails; technical climbs with lots of rocks/boulders, sand, loose pack/ hard pack, mud, you name it; these tires have gripped very well. They also roll very fast; gained me several positions in the Whiskey Off Road MTB Race just on the downhill stretches.

Weaknesses:    The main thing I don't like about these tires are the same I didn't like about the nevegals; the nobs rip very easily. They also wear fast. I've put on about 200 miles and they are starting to loose traction in trails that they normally stuck well.

Bottom Line:   
Great tires except for overall durability and life.

Strengths:    Light, true tubeless tire

Weaknesses:    Mud Shedding, Grip on anything moist or damp is scary

Bottom Line:   
Can't get any confidence on anything wet at any tire pressure. The don't hold a line in anything loose either. Very light but very disappointing as well.

Strengths:    Reasonably light for a UST tire. Seated/sealed with a floor pump.

Weaknesses:    Under-sized. Side knobs tear in hardpack/rocky conditions.

Bottom Line:   
First off--these tires run narrow. The 2.15" version is more like a 1.9"/2.00", and the 2.35" is pretty narrow, too. Like the Python, they're tall, though.

Mounting these on Cane Creek tubeless wheels (Bonty rim strips) was tougher than mounting Barracudas, but nowhere near as difficult as mounting Pythons. Once mounted, they sealed/seated with a floor pump. I ran them with 2 ounces of tubeless Slime, and didn't have any issues with punctures, etc.

I ran these (2.15, 2.35) as a rear tire, and they were OK. Not great, not horrible, just OK. My trails are mostly hardpack, a fair amount of rocks, and some loose-over-hard. Rolling resistance was better than the Barracuda, but not as fast as a Python. They're probably better suited to softer, loamy-type soil, as the side knobs show signs of tearing.

Weighed Hutchinson Toro XC Tubeless Ready 29er tire

Found this 95% Hardskin tire stashed in the garage. Must've been a good reason it's not on any bike, think it was destined for the SS 29er HT. Anywho, with no goop/sealant residue this rear-specific friendly 95% tire weighs 698 grams. addendum: Size 2.15 and now I remember why it's not on the bik ... Read More »

Hutchinson Toro Tubeless Ready tire...?

The guy I spoke with at my LBS was pretty excited about this tire, but the online reviews seem to be mixed. So, I'm curious if any forum members have tried it, and what you thought. The one thing I can say for sure is that the claimed 2.15" width is a little generous. Seeing it mounted on the s ... Read More »
