MichelinCountry AT 26 Inch Tire(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
After sitting in my garage for nearly two years (MTB as well) I decided to give these tires another try. Sure glad I did.
I removed a set of 2.44 Continental Mountain King tires, and installed these aforementioned tires. The main reason I removed the Contis from my Giant Yukon hardtail is that they were too wide. Made a funny clicking noise. I just didn't like that sound, made my 2006 MTB sound older than it is.
When I install them I rode around my neighborhood and discovered the angel food cake lightness of the Michelin Country AT 26 tire.
I much prefer the Michelins to the uber heavyweight Conti tires.
Can't wait to hit the trails with these tires.
I bought these for a recent trip to the Upper Peninsula. So far I am very pleased with them. They seem quite well made, good grip, and all at an excellent value. I would certainly but them again when the time comes.
Seem to be holding up and you can't beat the price. Used for riding around town a little but mostly the gravel and sandy mountains near Las Vegas. They are a great all around tire.
I love these tires off road. They work well on a variety of terrains, even muddy. I have no complaints about their off-road performance. However, on pavement or very hard surfaces they have a lot of rolling resistance and don't handle well. If all you do is ride off road then you will love these tires.
I bought one of these 2 years ago. I finally was able to find a couple more. If I ever upgrade my bike to a 29er I will be bummed if I cant find these for it. I just bought 2 more. They dont appear to have as deep of a tread as the one from a few years ago but they have a nice, aggressive tread for off-roading.
I am, by nature, a road cyclist so I bought these tires to go on a used hard tail mountain bike that I ride in the yard and field. My dog, a German Shepherd girl, chases me and gets a good running workout. The tires work well for what I am using them for. I am cycling through grass, on horse trails, and around the house on hard pan clay. I wish the tire casings were a bit heavier though because where we live there are lots of cacti growing. For general purpose on a mountain bike, these Michelin bicycle tires fufill their job nicely.
Love the tire in every way, great ride once you find the right tire pressure, and great braking for a 29er and also great forward traction. No trouble with flats running about 25's n both ends. Kudos to Michelin, best mountain bike tire ever!!!
