The paper introduces the notion of a truncating twisting function
from a cubical set to a permutahedral set and the corresponding
notion of twisted Cartesian product of these sets. The latter
becomes a permutocubical set that models in particular the path
space fibration on a loop space. The chain complex of this twisted
Cartesian product in fact is a comultiplicative twisted tensor
product of cubical chains of base and permutahedral chains of
fibre. This construction is formalized as a theory of twisted
tensor products for Hirsch algebras.
