These tires work well for me in all condition except wet. They perform well on dry, soft, or hard trails. They roll well on the road also. These have been some of my favorite tires, but they do not perform well at all when the road or trail is wet. But I guess that's why they are called County DRY. I really like these tires.
Looks like a good to very good tire, however the stats say they can be inflated to 80 psi and they only are good to 58 according to the side of the tire. I ride mostly on roads but hit trails rarely so the higher psi would've been nice but they are a dramatic improvement from the 18 yr old tires that were on my bike.
Thanks for your review! And thanks very much for bringing our inaccurate specs to our attention. Looks like we were basing them off an older version of the tire. We've updated the info now. For a tire of this width, 58 PSI should be plenty of pressure even on the roads, but if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our customer service department at [email protected] I hope you continue to enjoy your new tires!
Once again Michelin has done a great job in the practical design of the tires.
I bought them for my hardtail bicycle. Do mostly riding through dirt roads, nothing crazy. The tires hold great, I never had a flat. I ride through roads that are not paved, and once used them in a 50 mile ride through the Mexican Sierra through dirts paths, never had a problem. They really affordable. The white lettering stands out very good. A great tire to replace standard stock tires from regular everyday use bicycles such as hardtails, cruiser, transports, or even city trekking bikes.
They don't have huge knobs, so they tend to be quite if riding through pavementcement paths.
Would not recommend for serious Mountain sport since the knobs are not design for aggressive riding.
Having run a set of CD 2.15's for THREE summers, I was disappointed FIRST OF ALL to discover that they had been discontinued by Michelin, but I figured I'd try the 2.00's - they'd likely roll a bit faster, so why not?
The 2.00's lasted LESS than a summer, thankfully, I still have a set of the 2.15's that, after those three summers, have LESS WEAR.
The tires were easy to mount. They provide a good traction but yet a comfortable ride for commuting to and from my college campus on city streets. However, i did get a flat as a result of a thorn (most if not all tires wuld have flatted if they picked up this thorn), I would recommend these tires for general commuting purposes.
Got a set of these tires for my girls EX8. Did not think a lot about it, was a great price so what the heck. My bike broke down so I took her ride out for a spin at the local trails. Holy crap!!! These tires are fast and hook up oh so good!! It was dry so we shall see how they do in mud. I have been on all kinds of tires, these rock. Would use on race day for sure!
got them with my kona . i do a lot road riding, so this was just right. for off road i use a nobys. great tires for the bike path or packed trails. never had a flat after 7k miles. easy to take of n on. very light.
I used this tire on the New River Trail IN Va. on a 42 mile ride was wore out. Legs were covered with dirt due to the traction of the tread on the hard to soft packed small gravel. Have not tired it on the mountain trail but I think it is more suited for that.
