Established in 1853 by Hiram Hutchinson in Langlée near Montargis, France, Hutchinson first made rubber coated fabrics under the brand name Aigle.
Hutchinson branched out into bicycle tyres in 1890 and the company won its first competition with Léon Georget in 1909 thanks to the "Monofil" tyre. The biggest names in the world of cycling then took the brand to the highest peaks, claiming victories in the most famous races including the Tour de France.
The Hutchinson brand remains loyal to its founder. It reaffirms his commitment to responsible growth, founded on exemplary values forming a vital bridge between generations. These values - heritage, people, enthusiasm, involvement and a taste for a challenge - have woven together to form the ethics that are Hutchinson's driving force and pride.
