The usual definition of hyperbolicity of a group G demands that all geodesic triangles in the Cayley graph of G should be thin. Using the theorem that a subquadratic isoperimetric inequality implies a linear one, we show that it is in fact only necessary for all triangles from a given combing to be thin, thus giving a new criterion for hyperbolicity of finitely presented groups.
