Hutchinson Touareg tyres review

A grippy tyre for more dedicated off-road use

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Hutchinson Touareg tyres deal well with loose gravel, rocks and roots - they're a gravel tyre for the more gnarly end of the spectrum and proved to be confidence inspiring. They roll reasonably well on the road given their off-road capabilities, but they are quite hefty when compared with slicker tyres tailored to the more road focused models on the market - so we'd only recommend them if you intend to hit the trails more often than the road.

'Gravel riding' conjures up a very different image depending upon who you ask. For some riders (predominantly based in the US), it's long stretches of unpaved gravel road. For those who live in cities, it's quite a lot of road miles followed by some fun in the woods, whilst for me -  based on the Surrey/Kent border (often travelling into Sussex) - it's pretty much light trail use with a healthy dose of rocks and roots.
