Hutchinson Sector 32 Tubeless Tire
With several years of success in the 28mm version, Hutchinson has released the Secteur in a 32mm size, no doubt aimed at the growing endurance and gravel markets and the larger frame and fork clearances afforded by such frames- many with disc braking. Aptly named after the sectors of Pave and cobbles in the famed Paris Roubaix classic, this tire is aimed to fulfill your needs on dirt, cobbles, rough pavement, chip seal and anything else you want to through at it. Interestingly enough, the Secteur 32 tires were originally designed in 700x28 version for the FDJ racing team who were sponsored by Hutchinson for use in some European spring classics. They were never actually intended to be sold on a retail level, however, after witnessing significant growth in the tubeless tire market, Hutchinson decided to offer these for consumption by the general public.
The unique tread compound grips well in all conditions and has a very unique profile. The center bead is slick for fast rolling, while the corner bead has a micro, then macro dot-matrix like tread pattern for added grip when you're leaning the tire over in a turn.
The square carbon fiber bead profile on the Secteur is considered Tubeless Ready, and is not actually certified for the Hutchinson/Shimano tubeless rim design. That said, the Secteur has the correct design for the important lock-tight fit required for reliable performance on this tubeless system, but is actually more versatile and works well with many tubeless read rims. Hutchinson is an innovator in tubeless technology and has brought significant innovation and excellence to the road tubeless market. The Secteur 32 just expands that outreach.
