I'm on a mission to ride around the Equator, a distance of 24,902 miles! Earlier this year I was suffering almost daily "flats" from thorns and sharp gravel, this annoyance continued even after swopping tires twice from my normal Gatorskins to another manufacturer. Sadly no better, and even with the addition of liners, those flats were still almost a daily ritual! Then I saw the Michelin in all its glory, read the write ups, and thought I'd give them a try as they color coordinated with my S Works Roubaix. Now the bike looks even more stunning and the real beauty is that since I fitted them 2 months ago I HAVE NOT HAD A SINGLE FLAT!! yes, indeed go figure that, they are without doubt the best bicycle tire I have EVER used!
200 miles a week road cycling. Tubed version, 28 and 25 mm, like the the slick thread without decorative threads, the casing appears well built, the right compromise of casing and tread toughness and real on the road performance.
