About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Despite the instructions saying not to use levers I've never had a problem doing this but I am quite careful.
I use a stubby Park tyre lever (the blue ones) to *push* the tyre bead around and onto the rim. Thinner levers will break.
Paint the tyre bead and rim wall with soap, and work the tyre on by hand. Keep the bead as far down in the rim well as possible. When you get to the last little bit of bead (next to the valve) hold one side of the bead with one hand then put the tyre lever inside the rim and push around, pressing into the centre of the wheel, dragging the tyre bead over the rim edge as you go. It helps if you have someone else hold the rim and jam the wheel into a corner between two walls. This technique puts much less load into the rim than old fashioned levering.
Get the bead into the rim channel on the opposite side - this is VERY important, to provide just that extra millimeter of give. Use soapy water to lubricate the bead, and use the Hutchinson tyre levers (or similar non-edged tyre levers) to lever the bead over the rim. You can be quite forceful with the tyre levers but you MUST be careful not to damage the bead (hence, non-edged levers e.g. rounded tips).
Don't be disheartened - took me four hours and very sore thumbs the first time!
However several online field reports indicate that the Intensive has a relatively narrow casing - more like a 700x24c.
I see Hutchinson only make an "Intensive 2" now - http://www.hutchinsontires.com/en/road/27-intensive-2-reinforced.html
Are these ones the original "Intensive"?
