Interbike 2010 — A Look at the new Hutchinson Serenity Flat-free Tires

When we stopped by the Hutchinson Tires booth, we ran into our friend Steve Boehmke. He gave us a quick video rundown on the new Hutchinson “Serenity” flat-free tires:

I got a quick ride on carpeted show floor, so I really can’t tell you how they “feel” in real-world conditions. But, with a little luck, we’ll get a sample to test in the coming weeks. I know what you’re thinking: “hasn’t this been tried before by dozens of other companies?” Perhaps, but this is a different technology and one I hope is valid. Initial indications are pretty amazing, though.

Freedom Bicycle Tire Review, Ryder Model

Where do I start? Yesterday I replaced the stock tires on the Torker Graduate and went for spin down the Southern California Coast. My spin turned out to be 45 miles ending at Oceanside California; this has a lot to do with the Freedom Ryder tires, they were trouble free and allowed me to keep rolling until my legs were fried.

With 80 psi in the tires I thought it would be a rough ride. It was not and yet still very grippy in the loose stuff. The miles just kept clicking off; part of the ride was though Camp Pendleton Marine Base. The bike path on the base can be rough at times and can flat a tire with ease — the tires held up great over slab cracks and gravel.
