Protek Yourself From Flats

The Michelin Protek 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.

The Michelin Protek 700c Tire is available in 700c x 28, 32, 35, 38, and 40mm sizes (ISO 28-622, 32-622, 37-622, 40-622, 42-622).

Please note that in the larger sizes the ISO measurement is 2mm larger than the common (700c) size printed on the sidewall.

Features:

  • 1mm thick puncture barrier
  • Reflective strip on the sidewall
  • Remarkable grip on both pavement and dirt roads
  • Excellent for commuting, bike paths, & other touring applications

Impressed with the low rolling resistance

Installed a pair of these on a 21 year old Trek I picked up. Required a little bit of finessing to install (had a little trouble with getting the valve part of the tube inside the tire during mounting (the tire wouldn't completely seat until I removed and remounted the tire.

Once installed, I'm impressed with how smoothly these roll. Only have about 50 miles on them so far, but will probably buy more for other bikes in the family.

The reflective stripe is a plus.

Cannondale Bad Boy eBike conversion

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.

A Good Budget Tire

I needed a cheap set of tires and these fit the bill. They tend to feel soft and the tread is not very deep so these probably won't be the best if you do a lot of miles or skids. Overall, a pretty good tire for the price.

SMOOTH RIDE!

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!

Great tires for our tandem

I put these on our tandem replacing 28mm tires that we've used for years. I was a little skeptical of the 35mm but as it turns out they ride and roll better on our roads than my previous slick road tires. The 35mm works a little better on some of our chip & seal roads. They also work well on crushed stone trails.

Tough & Cheap but Heavy

I've run this tire (28mm) on the front wheel of an 80's Motobecane Grand Jubilee. Measuring 29 mm at 80 PSI, it is wider than any other "28mm" tire I've tried. I liked the extra width up front to traverse over road imperfections but it seemed a bit heavy. I've since switched it to the rear and put a lighter tire up front. I feel the Protek will perform well in the rear. In the few miles I rode it, I experienced no flats. If you don't care much about the weight, it's a good choice. I plan on using it on the newly finished Rock Island Trail east of Kansas City. I have high hopes for it there as well as elsewhere around the city.

Great quality product AND great service and price!

I bought these Michelin Protek tires and Airstop A3 tubes to replace a set of Michelin Transworld City tires and tubes on my Trek 7300 bicycle. I was thoroughly satisfied with the performance and long service of the tires I am replacing, which is why I chose another set of Michelin tires and tubes.

This was my first experience with BikeTiresDirect, and I was impressed by the quality of service, the price of the products, and the speed of delivery.

Awesome looking and a great value

The price was very good and it made a good replacement for my daughter's 25 year old bike that she still rides today. She loves the bike and I upgraded it with new tires and other parts but these Tires surpassed my expectations. The first set of tires I ordered were too big because the markings on the old tires called for 28" tire and that was what I ordered initially. I asked BikeTiresDirect support for recommendations. They educated me on the right size I needed (700C). I found these on sale and they fit perfectly. Like all tires, getting them on the rim to fit correctly took a few tries but that is expected with all tires. The bonus is the reflective stripe on the side wall. With the reflective strip on the side wall, I removed the reflectors in the spokes which made the bike look out of date. But with these tires it looks fresh. My daughter is loving it more than before. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good quality tire at a great price.

Great tire for recreation

I ride about 75 miles per week, nothing major, but enough to enjoy how these tires roll. Between the two bikes, this is my fifth Michelin pro tech tire purchase. I have never had an issue and will continue to purchase. I typically replace these tires every 2 to 3 years. Bike tires direct customer service is great and I've always had positive experiences buying online and picking up at the Portland location.

well pleased with these tires for my commuter.

They remind me of much more expensive touring tires sold by a German manufacturer. They roll well and have nice rounded shoulders for leaning into turns. Other reviewers had noted they run a bit large. I generally run 35s and that is the size I bought but my bike has very minimal brake and fender clearance and If I get another set they will be 32s. Otherwise I am completely pleased.

Good tires but wider than normal

I have a Trek 1000c with factory bontrager wheels. It calls for 28mm tires. These are 28mm tires. Guess what? They don't fit in the front. When I wrote to explain the problem BTD told me they can't control the width of my rims. With 75psi they measure an actual 31mm with my digital calipers. I'll run them in the back and something else up front. Suggestions?

I ride practically every day and have had great performance from these tires.

I have ridden over 24,000 miles; mostly in Colorado, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I have used a number of different tires along the way. These tires perform as well or better than any I have used. The reflective strip is a nice touch that really "lights up" in a car's headlights and makes me feel a bit safer.

GREAT urban commuter tires

This is my second set of these and they are great. A nice wide city tire that works with fenders on my commuter Raleigh. The reflective sidewalls add a level of safety but still look nice. They hold up well and are good year round.

Great value. Feels good on the road after breaking in. Probably only a couple hundred miles at this point and it's holding up to the weird road debris from urban

camps.

Perfectly Good

Nice and quiet ride. Cornering is sadly mediocre, but still better than what Schwalbe's doing in this style. I don't know why tire makers have recently decided we only ride in straight lines now. I won't really know how the thorn protection is until I pick up some thorns, but I haven't had a puncture in the first couple hundred miles, even though I've definitely ridden through broken glass a few times.

Excellent replacement tires and complimented the bike.

I bought this tire for a particular bike I intended to sell. The tires were sharp and clear in logo and made the bike stand tall and ready for the trail. The tire very closely resembled the OE and I could not have been happier with them. A good selection all round!

Well built tire, affordably priced

Good replacement for stock tires that usually come with the bike. Extra layer of protection that helps to avoid flats. Note - this tire is a bit wider that the usual expected tire size. Not a drawback, but an observation.
