Hutchinson Overide road bike tire on a rolling resistance test machine

The Hutchinson Overide is a gravel tire available in both a tube-type and a tubeless-ready version. The tread has an almost slick profile in the middle with knobs rising towards the edges. This is a typical profile that we see from more tire manufacturers for their fast cyclocross/gravel tires.

The tubeless-ready Hutchinson comes with a 127 TPI casing and is available in the 35-622 and 38-622 sizes. The tube-type version only has a 33 TPI casing, which can be an indication to us that not only the casing is different but also the general quality of the tires is lower.


We have tested the 35-622 version which is marked "Road Tubeless-Ready" and has a slightly lower profile in the middle of the tire. Strangely enough, the 38-622 version (labeled "Tubeless-Ready") has a slightly higher profile in the center of the tire. We studied the photos of both tires and it seems that the differences are at most 0.2 mm and will have little influence on the test results.

Rolling Resistance
Real tire width in mm:
30-32 = 33 psi/2.3 bar
33-35 = 30 psi/2.1 bar
36-40 = 27 psi/1.9bar
Extra Low Air Pressure
31.6 Watts
CRR: 0.00947
The CX/Gravel section is a multi tire size section, air pressures have been adjusted to the measured casing width.

All numbers are for a single tire at a speed of 29 km/h / 18 mph and a load of 42.5 kg / 94 lbs.

Use the formula: RR (Watts) = CRR * speed (m/s) * load (N) to calculate rolling resistance at a given speed and load.

Conclusion


  • Hutchinson Overide
Performance compared to all other CX/Gravel tires
(100% is fastest - lightest - highest - strongest)

The Hutchinson Overide cannot convince us. This tire looks like a very fast tire but the results show that the tire is slower than many tires that have a somewhat slower appearance. Also in our other tests, the Overide cannot convince us as it does not really perform strongly anywhere.


Our rating is 3 out of 5 which is still recommended. The Hutchinson is not a bad tire but we think better tires are available. Check our CX/Gravel overview page overview page for yourself to compare.
