    Out of this world.

    When updating its Fusion 3 tire lineup for 2016, the French rubber masters over at Hutchinson chose to skip straight past four and instead christen their new line Fusion 5. Rather than a bold statement in post-modernist self-reflexivity, the move is actually in reference to the five characteristics they feel a tire needs to exhibit to achieve the best ride quality: grip, rolling performance, durability, puncture resistance, and comfort. Amongst the Fusion 5 line, the Galactik Tubeless Tire occupies the upper echelon, representing the thinnest, most pared-down option for race-day speed and resilience.

    Whether you're whirring around corners and riding at threshold on a closed criterium course or out in an open road race, Hutchinson makes sure that you'll be able to take the Galactik out without holding your breath and waiting for a flat. Though the Fusion 5 line does include an All Season tire option for more consistently challenging conditions, the Galactik is more than capable of managing its share of imperfect shoulders and road grit in a race, maintaining a low rolling resistance with a casing that's far from delicate.

    That casing is a 127 TPI carcass of densely-woven threads that Hutchinson further reinforces with nylon puncture protection to create a plush ride with confidence-inspiring durability. Guaranteeing a tire won't betray you in a race is impossible, but the Galactik's tubeless construction, smart composition, and Hutchinson pedigree make it something we'd be pretty confident taking to a starting line.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Spectacularly bad tire. The worst I've ever tried. In 900 miles I've had ten punctures on the pair. The last straw was a catastrophic multiple blowout on the rear. Look at the picture. It's shredded like that in multiple places. It's terrifying. This is on the very same roads I've put tens of thousands of miles on with zero flats on other tires.

    I've been running these tubeless and the Stan's managed to do the job at first, but these have so many cuts beyond salvaging, I've given up and am running tubes.

    Stay away.

    On the plus side, they would probably good if you ride in a hermetically sealed clean room though. Go for it.
