Best tire ever!

This tire is the best of both worlds. On the street if at 50 psi only about 34 inch of tire is on the pavement. Off road is good traction, suggest lower pressure if its a off road day. I like the tread design and the reflective white wall trim feature. This is a solid tire with strong sidewall design. I can see why E Bikes would use this tire. If I was running at 25 miles per hour,this is the tire I would feel confident with. This may not appeal to the lightweight racing bicyclist but for the commuter or 90% road 10% dirt biker, this is the tire you want. I was running 1.95's and was hesitant to go to the 1.85 but I'm glad I did. The size is perfect for both worlds.

Michelins just as good on a bike as an automobile.

I use these Michelins on a Fuji bike. I like everything about them. These Michelin bike tires are far superior to other brand tires just like Michelin & Nokian automotive tires are to other brand automotive tires. I ride primarily on resurrected rail trails and these are great.

Excellent Street Tires without the worry of punctures!

I mostly used this tire for City riding and average 15 mile daily. I have only had these tires for a few months and always have had a smooth & fast ride. So far I have not found anything that I dislike about these tires!

Nice smooth ride

Replace knobby tires on wife's Mtn Bike. These tires are pretty substantial but offer a really nice smooth ride. I got the 1.85 version so they almost look like Cruiser tires. The reflective sidewalls are a nice touch. Overall very happy with the purchase

strong multipurpose tire

Seems like a very good tire both for paved and unpaved surfaces, but be aware that 1.6 refers to the width of the tire. The tire is 2.1 high making for clearance problems on some bikes (including the one I intended to use it on.

Pretty good tire but not totally puncture proof

A good looking, smooth rolling tire.

I mounted a pair on my Cruzbike T50 and withing the 1st block I had a flat.

A tiny glass shard had gotten through.

Since then I have put appx. 400 miles on them on not another puncture.

Great Tire for Both Pavement and Off-Road

My bicycle is a few years old, so I was somewhat limited in my new tire choices, however, these tires are proving to be just right. They roll smoothly on the pavement and hold up really well on off-road terrain. I ride across rocky dirt paths as well as roads and sidewalks. I'm very happy with this set!

I was looking for tires to replace the tires i wore out on my Trek 4300, and these tires are fantastic. Extremely free rolling on pavement and amazing off road,where I ride this bike most. Couldn't be happier!

Nice looking and nice riding tire for backroads and hills,

Use the tires on backroads that are very poorly maintained and also quite hilly. Relatively smooth ride in spite of the road conditions. The tires are on an older Trek 820.

Great replacement tires for commuters.Bright reflective and easy to finger on.Tight-fit rims well. Run 2mm larger.

Puncture protection, smooth and pretty fast aired up.Reflective stripe is bright easy to see 200ft. Fit rims and hand/finger on quite well.These run larger w/calipers by 1.5 to 1.8 - watch your frame width. Ride is smooth and quite an Improvement without spending a lot more.

Cracks

Purchased and installed them in March 2017. The rear tire's sidewall has many cracks. Hard to say how long they have been there. Front tire is fine. I have not allowed them to deflate. Need to get another set of tires not sure if I will choose this type again.
