Runs great and looks good too. Nice road feel and not blocky or rigid feeling. I run these on a 1100w Cannondale BadBoy at 60 psi front and 66 rear. Handles grass, sand, urban chunky streets, and WOT runs sustained at 35mph no problem. I also like that this tire doesn't sing and doesn't feel heavy even though it weighs a little more. I've never had a thorn in 1500 miles so ProTek works good on and off road. Can't say that about Kenda and Conti urban bike tires.
This has a well designed thread pattern for "go every where" purpose. I bought a pair to be used as my city bike. The writings on the wall of the tire indicate the tire is designed for e-bikes, which, in theory, should not make any difference in fit and use. I believe the designers had sturdiness in mind with thicker tire material to resist puncture. However, the sturdiness came at a cost... its weight. This may not matter much on an e-bike which you don't need to worry too much about pedaling, but it does to a regular bike to some degree if you are someone like me...a picky person. I just thought there was big difference between the one I was replacing with this one. Otherwise, it should give a long tread life. I also like its reflective side wall stripes.
Replaced 1.95 Kenda Knobbies with the 1.85 Protek on my Giant MTB. What a difference in comfort , speed , & little rolling resistance. Very quiet in comparison . I'm 79 & I am done with off road trekking. I ride 15-20 KMS per day mostly on hard top , light gravel paths. These tires are good quality at a great price.
I don't sound like a siren driving down the road anymore. These tires are not as fast as my Trek Domane 700 x 32mm tires but just as smooth !! Love them.
I just moved to a new location that has a bike trail close by. Inspecting my "old tires" I saw the evidence of "dry rot"..... That said, I decided that some new tires & tubes would be required for the newer, higher speed conditions. I like Michelin products and have them on all of my vehicles, so why not give them a try on my road bike? The tires were fairly easy to install and yielded a SMOOTHER RIDE! The "reflective band" on the side of the tires make them kind of cool looking as well. Peace of mind and money well spent!
