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

Very good tire - but it barely fit on my bike�

I was getting a lot of flats riding in town on 25cm slicks (Continentals) so I wanted a slightly larger tire with a beefier tread. I bought two 28cm Protek 700cc tires, but so far have only installed the back one. On my 2012 Cannondale CAAD12, a no-frills aluminum road bike, this larger tire BARELY fit in the rear chain stay. I had to trim the rubber whiskers off the tire because they made an audible "ting" striking the stay; I also had to limit pressure to 70psi, and center the tire and rim carefully. But it all worked! I've done a couple hundred miles with no flats. The tire is very straight and smooth, more than my previous tires, although it does weigh nearly twice as much. Totally worth it - feels secure and roadworthy. I'll switch the front next time I have a flat.

Great all around road and light trail tire.

These tires, although a bit heavy, roll well and provide a comfortable and solid feel. The6 are very flat resistant and handle well. I ride with these on the road in So. Cal. and they handle glass, rock, and other debris with no flats, so far. I hate having to stop to fix a flat and would rather have the security these tires offer over a lighter more flat prone tire. I'm running 700x38's on my Trek FX 7.7, but will probably go down to 32 or 35 o the bone T set, but at RP the rate these wear, tht will be awhile. Overall these a smooth, reliable, and a great value, especially from BTD!

Very good hybrid bike tire

The tire runs smooth and is very quiet on trails. Mounted easily and seems like a good tire. It also runs true, and I really like the reflective stripe. Nice tread pattern. I trust the Michelin brand name on my SUV too. I would have paid extra for the Max with more anti flat protection if buying another but, for this sale price it was hard to pass up.

Quantity tire, nice ride

I've been using Michelin tires for years and have never had a tire failure (or even a flat tire) over the thousands of miles my wife and I have ridden. These tires are mounted on our converted Mountain/Touring bikes, hauling 35 to 50 extra pounds of gear with no problem. I also like the small reflective band that goes around each side of the tire. Very noticeable at night, which we do a lot of riding in the evenings/night. It's a good tire!

Perfect tire for commuting. Love the reflective sidewalls!

You would not put these on a road bike to spin on long rides, but if you are a commuter, or riding on short trips and busy streets these are great tires that can stand up to the potholes. Best part are the reflective sidewalls and the price. Plus they are a name brand,

Very good tire for the price.

This tire has been fantastic so far except for getting a couple of flats. It was easy to install, rolls easily, and is easy to dismount to repair flats. Value for price is very high. I would consider buying this again. I've yet to have a bicycle tire that never had a flat.

Worst cycling product I've ever purchased

In 80,000 miles of cycling I've never had a worse experience. These tires are nearly impossible to mount & remove. Had 7 flats in 3 weeks after installing these tires. They are going in the trash & I will purchase something else.

Perfect tire for my winter riding

The Michelin Protek tire is the best value for my hybrid bike. Each day after work, I ride twenty miles During the .winter months, half of my ride is in the dark and sometimes in wet conditions. I have peace of mind knowing that cars can see me because of the reflective sidewall; they have excellent channeling of rainwater and high puncture resistance. Not too difficult tire to mount, a durable tire at a great price. My go-to tire for my hybrid.

Easy to mount and low rolling resistance

I bought a new Motobecanne not long ago. The front tire blew off of the rim at the normal pressure, so I replaced both tires. I am averaging 5% faster with these tires. Some said these were hard to mount, but not for me. I didn't even need tools.

I enjoy this tire so much I'm on my 2nd set

This tire is excellent on road or even a little bit of gravel if you so desire. Flats are almost non- existing with the thick tread. In the wetter conditions it can slip a little when pushed but it would have to be very wet. The reflective sidewall is a definite ?? plus for night riders or pre-dawn patrols.

Fantastic value, great hybrid bike tire

Michelin tires never get the love they deserve from the bicycle Illuminati. They are rugged and give the consumer unrivaled bang- for-the-buck. I use the nominal 35mm which actually plumps out to 37mm.

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.

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.
