Protek Yourself From Flats
The Michelin Protek 27" is one of the French tire giant's most longstanding urban/touring models, and it's lasted the test of time for a reason. Between the excellent puncture protection, low rolling resistance, and excellent siping for rainy days, the Protek is your perfect commuting partner.
With a tread that is optimized to roll smoothly, while still providing excellent grip on both pavement and dirt roads, the Protek shines above its competitors.
Its 1mm thick reinforcement also helps keep road debris at bay, so if all goes to plan, commutes will go without a hitch (or at least without a flat).
A reflective strip on the sidewall also lends some extra visibility for added safety during low light conditions.
This version is a 27" x 1 1/3" (ISO 630) generally found on older road bikes.
- 1mm thick puncture barrier
