Hutchinson Spider rotation

779 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  shiggy
Does anyone seem to think the rotation arrows on the Hutchy Spiders is backward? I just got a set and the front middle knobs are "pointing" back toward me and the rear knobs are "pointing" toward the front. On my Tioga Psychos TT/K it was the opposite pattern. You would think the front knobs would be facing foward and the rear backward. I think I will e-mail the company but I wanted to see what you all thought.

I've had great luck running them as directed. Didn't have a need to try them backwards. Mounting tubless tires is enough of a pain in the ass that I dont want to do it any more often than necessary.
Hutchinson's rotation suggestions are "backwards" compared to most companies. It also works.

You can always try it both ways and decide for yourself. Hutchinson tires - including the tubeless are easy to mount and remove even compared to most standard tires.
