Our technology

Every tire we make is also the product of more than 160 years of manufacturing experience and innovation in industries ranging from aerospace to automotive.

In 2020, the company has celebrated the 130th anniversary of its Cycling History.

Hutchinson has been producing bicycle tires in its Chalette-sur-Loing’s factory since 1890. It is the only bicycle tire company still manufacturing its products in France. Highly advanced and technical tires can thus benefit of the best of Hutchinson’s R&D know-how and materials.

A tire is more than the sum of its components.

All stages of development and manufacture, from design to final completion are carried out at the company’s historic factory in Chalette-sur-Loing, about 130kms south from Paris.

Each component has been meticulously selected and constantly re-evaluated to guarantee its performance and aesthetics.

Because the choice of materials is an essential link in the long chain of processes in manufacturing an exceptional product, Hutchinson has a rigorous selection process for choosing only the best ingredients.
