Hutchinson is releasing its complete range of gravel tyres in a 700x50mm size, the first time they have been available in this larger width.

The line-up features three tyres - the Tundra, the Touareg and the Overide - all of which are tubeless ready. The French brand pioneered the technology in the 1990s and became the first tubeless tyre to win on the WorldTour stage, with Philippe Gilbert's victory at Omloop Het Volk in 2008.
