It's not. Neutrons and Scirroccos are super hard to mount tyres on. Shamals and Zondas by contrast are pi55 easy. P3Rs go on easily with those.

With the techniques described in this thread you won't need levers, though it won't be easy.
On the other hand, the Neutrons give me some added confidence when going at speed, knowing the tyre won't come off the rim easily in case of a flat.

That's never happened to me on any rims.

Had that happen on my Shamals last year when my front tyre blew, resulting in a sudden slowing down maneuvre involving the time honoured skin-on-tarmac retardation technique...
