    Cool-blue Rhythm Hutchinson Bulldog 2.1 UST Light weights...

    I just got some Bulldog 2.1 UST Light tires in on Wednesday.
    Here are the following weightsd for 4 tires:
    649, 653, 658, 663g

    I am not sure on the claimed yet but not bad for a good volume UST tire. These are bigeer than the Mosquito UST 2.0 or Python UST Light 2.0 and look similar in size to the Spider UST 2.1

    Can't weight to try these out next weekend. I love Hutchinson tires as the Mosquitos are my all time favorties and these look similar!

    Everyone should be able to get these now and the Airlights versions in 2.1 also availabe.

    i got two 2.1 bulldogs UST, and they weigh 740 g (i suppose that's for the normal UST version though). the carcass measures 50,0 mm just like the pythons, while the maximum width of the knobs is 47,0 mm (vs. 44,0)

    good allround tire, but doesn't roll THAT well

    Have you got the new Pythons yet? I think they were to come in 2.1 and have a different tread pattter.

    Did anybody heard about 2.3 Pythons? According to the Commencal website, they exist. Could that be a typo?

    A 2.3" Python would be very cool. I love my pythons for certain conditions and certainly would not shy away from a bigger version.

    Here is the link to their UK site (the France's one is kaput right now): http://www.commencal.co.uk/mtb/Meta_5/index.php

    They state:"Hutchinson Python Airlight 26X2.3". I too would find this very cool if it comes to market. I know that awhile back, some guy in France was racing some proto pythons 2.3.

    i think i've seen them at their eurobike boot in 2004. the new hutchs also come in several rubber copounds, from soft to medium, depending on intended use

    I've been riding bulldog UST since 8 months now (may04)

    I don't like it too much in front.
    Much better in the rear, lot of traction. They have become my standart setup teamed with a spider in the front.

    My prototypes version were around the 680g mark.


    2.3 pythons are available, but not in air light version yet.

    It's a pitty hutchinson doesn't make 29".

    Seeing your favorite trail is at Bromont, where are you located? I'm in Montreal and I'll be picking my new bike this weekend and if there are no tires I like at the shop, I may be looking for some Bulldog Tubeless light 2.1 or 2.3 or Spiders UST 2.1 or 2.3.

    Isn't Hutchinson a french company, but started by an american who moved over there because he wanted real food?

    I'd like to know the weight of the 2.3 tubeless light in fact.

    Not hutchinson belongs to total fina, an oil producer.

    I don't know the weight of the tubeless version, but the same source says the python 2.3 air light should be around 630g !!!!
