The Fastest And Most Affordable Michelin Touring Tire
The Michelin Country Rock 27.5 Inch Tire is a versatile and puncture-resistant tire that transitions effortlessly from asphalt to dirt without a hiccup.
Its tightly packed, super low profile knobs create a tire that rolls almost as smoothly as a slick tread on the road but also provides more traction than a slick on dirt surfaces. The more pronounced edge knobs on the Michelin Country Rock offer better cornering off-road. The tread is also very puncture-resistant and long-wearing. Suffice it to say, for the cost, you are getting a lot of bang for your buck.
The ample siping in this tire makes it excel at gripping in wet conditions when other tires would fling you off the bike.
If you are looking for a bicycle tire to get you from point A to point B, whether you be traveling on gravel, tarmac, or hardpacked singletrack, the Michelin Country Rock is the tire for you.

Basic tire, good value. They were fairly difficult to mount, even with lubed beads. I bought a pair, one of the tires has an excessive amount of mold flash all the way around and all the way across the tread. The tire looks like it needs a haircut or shave (too much rubber in the mold so it had to go out somewhere). I know it's only cosmetic but it really looks ridiculous. I mounted it on the rear so I don't have to see it when riding.
This tire rdes well on both gravel and pavement. I ride a gravel bike frequently, but never on rough terrain, just on gravel with a few rocks and roots or on the road. I like the way the tires ride, and they seem to roll well on both.
