Comments about Hutchinson Equinox 2 Road Tire:

Had the 23mm size. Flatted out over and over since I first bought the bike these came on. Hard to get off to change the tube, and kind of hard to get them back on too. Save your money and buy some better tires that will last longer, have flat protection and roll better. I just switched to the Continental Grand Prix 4000 II in 25mm, They have great reviews. Maybe not the most high end and may not be a race tire, but they are pretty nice and feel good on the road.

25mm in name only....

By Runner guy

Pros

  • Sale price
  • Seem Well-made

Cons

  • Not A 25mm Tire
  • Rolling Resistance

Best Uses

  • Road Biking

Comments about Hutchinson Equinox 2 Road Tire:

I replaced a set of 25mm Vit... Zafir...'s and the Equinox 2 is nowhere close to being a 25mm tire. The profile is low and there's nt a lot of sidewall there compared to other 25 mm tires.. At anything less than 100 psi, the tire has a supple ride but feels like it has a very high rolling resistance - just not what I was expecting from Hutchinson. Iit's not a tire that inspires confidence going into a curve at 30 mph :(

Narrow & Heavy

Best Uses

Comments about Hutchinson Equinox 2 Road Tire:

The actual weight is 280 grams and the actual measured width is 23mm. If they were advertised as a 700-23 that weighed 280 grams I would find no fault with them.......but I would not have purchased them either. In this price bracket I don't expect the world but an accurate description from Hutchinson would be nice. For what it's worth the regular 700-23 Equinox is measured accurately in both weight and width.

Comments about Hutchinson Equinox 2 Road Tire:

I bought three sets of these so far, and I now have them on two road bikes, one's a workhorse commuter bike with loaded-down bags, and the other's a snappy weekend fast bike. I ride in the rain frequently, and there never is a problem with these slicks; the compound isn't slippery and I trust them cornering at high speeds in all conditions.

I wanted to go up to a 25MM wide tire (since they have durability and rolling resistance advantages) and I'm not getting punctures with these tires like some I've had. Now I like how they look, and I'm happy with their performance for the cost.

      Comments about Hutchinson Equinox 2 Road Tire:

      I put these babies on a vintage/restored 12 speed that is almost 30 years old. I rode it on a 60 mile ride in scenic Hudson, KS last weekend and they performed flawlessly. Take note that these lack tread so if you're planning on riding in the rain these may not be the best choice of tire. That being said, I was zipping around others on the ride like a teenager on the way to first school dance. I was moving fast enough to "speed test" the tires and am happy to report they held up to such extreme speeds! A great deal for tires and did I mention how purty they look on my classic?!
