Fast and grippy tires!

These tires roll nice and quick. If you read some of the rolling resistance tests they are among the fastest rolling tires available. They are also incredibly grippy. On a hot day the rubber is noticeably stickier than Continental GP4000's. They hold extremely well in turns and are not prone to skidding when you get a bit over aggressive on the brakes. I was a bit concerned about flats with them, but have ridden over 1000 miles on them now and have not had any problem with getting flats like I thought I might. I was also a bit concerned about durability given the stickiness of them, but there again I was surprised. With 1000 miles on them now I still have about 12 of the wear left according to the wear indicator. Overall very pleased with these tires.

Fast

Fast, turns well, tougher than I thought for a light race day like tire. Works well with latex tubes. Feels close to my tubulars.

Great tires!

Been riding Michelin tires for a while now and I'm really liking the Power Comps. 1000 miles in and only one flat that would've been unavoidable with any tire.

Anyway, BTD is great to work with. Easy ordering and fast delivery - would recommend!

Compared to the Pro 4 the Power competition are amazingly faster with far less flats

At 70 I'm not racing anymore, but still do some fast group rides, I have been using Michelin tires for 20 years

These Power competition tires are fast, they help me hang on with less rolling resistance , a must have for anyone wishing to ride faster.

Love how they feel on the road

These tires are very supple and give great confidence when descending. They are very smooth in a straight line. However the do wear quickly, this set was bought in middle of June and they are starting to show signs of dry rot.

You may have to replace these MPCT at least once a year. The flat protection seems go away after 2000 miles.

As you know there will always be a give and take when you buy high performance products.

Good Luck

Great wearing tire, handles well

Another good tire in a long line of quality Michelin products. I've gotten good wear out of the Power Competition tire. And, it handles well. I've been using the Pro Series for the past 12 years, they always handle better than a harder tire, and this model seems to wear better.

Fast Rubber

I run these on my TT bike only. Was riding Specialized S-Works Turbos. Tried these last fall and set some new PRs. Was it the tires? Dunno, but now my brain thinks it was, so they are staying on. And a decent value when you can catch them on sale.

Great tire!

Love these tires! I have used all early versions of the pro race series and the competition is by far the best. I used to think the Vittoria open Corsa was the fastest feeling tire but I way the competition rolls better...and it is super smooth. I have athese in a 25c on Enve 3.4 wheelset with a BMC TEAMMACHINE!

Can't recommend these

The day after I ordered these tires, one of my riding buddies told me he had two sidewall cut incidents in a single week while running the Power Comps. Thinking (hoping) that was just bad luck, I installed mine and was really pleased (smooth, fast, great cornering) but then, 10 days later-you guessed it-I flatted and upon further inspection discovered a 1.5-inch cut in the sidewall. Three (irreparable) sidewall cuts in 3 weeks by two different riders tells me something's wrong with these tires. I can't recommend them.

Little spendy, but speed increase is noticeable

For use on my Felt Z85. Original Felt tires lasted 1600 miles. I have 500 miles on the newer Michelin set now. Rear tire cutpunctured last night - first flat this year. Ordered another - because are just so much lighter and quicker accelerating..perhaps trade-off is puncture resistance. These are prolly meant for race only, no debris conditions...2100 mile on the bike this season so far - loving it. Next step, better wheelset.

The Tires Are awesome

No flats on bad jersey roads. The ride is supple not squishy.

Also makes the the tires make my Mavic Carbon wheels look nicer than the stock Mavic tires.

I have ridden them for about 400 miles.

Nice Improvement over the Pro4's

Piled on about 2500 miles on a set of these and it's time to replace. I think I only flatted twice on these during that time and I ride some pretty crappy roads, so I'm pretty happy about that. $65 a tire doesn't make me happy though. Debating on trying the Endurance version this time around.
