I use these on my road bike where I want maximum performance. I have tried other tires but always come back to Michelin Pro. Only negative is that they are tight to install over the rim. However I have few flat tires and they last a long time.
These were recommended to me to give more frame clearance than the 23mm Continental GP 4000 II S's I was running before. There's very little frame clearance on my 2012 Cervelo S5, and these tires are slightly narrower than the Conti's. No flats yet on approx. 1500km or riding on variable road surfaces.
Ride about 8 hours a week on clean roads in the hills of eastern Tennessee. In the course of one week flatted the rear tire three times and the front once. Maybe the rubber is too soft for hot conditions. The ride quality is great when youre riding and not stopped by the roadside. Will stick with Continental tires which are pretty much bullet-proof
Great set of tires. Its lightweight and durable, I primarily use it for commuting 9 miles every day. I purchased the 25mm I have tons of debris on the road and I can hear them ricochet off the tires!
I purchased 2 of the Michelin Pro Endurance tires as I have had a very good experience with them in the past - and the tread has a slight V at the bottom which should give optimum rolling resistance - I'm always passing riders on downhills!
I ride 10-12 thousand miles a year . That's allot of tires ! These are the Best combination of Performance and Price . I tried just about everything including the new Michelin Power Endurance and ruined a pair at Twice the Cost in a week !
On sale these are a good buy. I get about 1500 miles on them. I make sure to rotate them at about 800 miles. They tend to start getting soft and susceptible to punchers around the 1500 mile mark. They probably could still be used for a few more miles but I tend to replace them as I don't want to hassle flats. At the price I don't mind just replacing to a new set.
They might not specify but these are the Pro4 V2 tires. They're a bit more robust than the original tire!
I use these and the GP4000 interchangeably. I weigh about 220lbs and carry a rucksack with clothes and the tires hold up fine!
Endurance road rider 3-4 times a week for a total of 150 miles a week in fast paced group rides over differing terrains on farm to market asphaltconcrete and chip-seal roads
I have had 3 sets of these now that I have run completely in to the ground with a grand total of 1, yes 1, flat. The shocker is the suppleness of the ride, compared to saya Gatorskin. I ride on a lot of sketchy rural roads, so these have seen all sorts of action. I have also run these for crits, with no complaints on that end either. I run 25's and modify the pressure according to the situation. I just put some 23's on my TT rig and the rid is a bit stiffer, but more responsive. My advice, go with the 25's as an all around tire, and you'll be satisfied. The all black looks dope. Happy trails!
Fast tires wow! Could feel the difference immediately both in straight line speed, and cornering ability being better than cheaper alternatives that I have tried. Have not tried them on wet pavement yet.
