"Great tyres, i have had 3 sets. Just had a very brief flirtation with some Schwalbe Ultremo ZX. Rear tyre sidewall punctured after first 20 miles at 40+mph. Just ordered a new pair of Conti's!"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit

As tyre designers, Schwalbe say the Ultremo is the pinnacle of their ambition. ZX - The best ULTREMO ever!

"I usually ride Continental GP4000s but i thought i would try something different. I had read mixed reviews - most would agree they are fast tyres but there are a fair few who claim they are prone to punctures. I never punctured on my GP,s (3 sets) and assumed those who had on the these were just unlucky. In the interests of free speed i bought some. First ride and about 20 miles in the back tyre blew (sidewall) whilst i was doing 40+mph. I have just ordered a new set of Conti's."

How does this tyre compared to the Hutchinson Fusion 3 Folding Tyre?

I have been using the Hutchinson Fusion 3 Folding Tyre for at least a year now and they were very good at being puncture proof. Just wondering if the Schwalbe would be better.
doubt it. mine punctured after 20 miles.
