I am a recreational ride. I do about 1500-2000 miles a year. I like this tire for the price. I got only about 1500 miles out of a previous set before the wire started to flatten out pretty good. Traction is good and I have not had any flat issues although my path is a really good one.
Both front and back tire started to come off the rim at 80 psi. Made sure the tube was pulled tight, dismounted and rotated tire, etc. Both tires did same thing. Put the only Kendas back on and they seated and inflated right up.

I got the 25mm tires. I like the smooth tread. They roll well. So great performance and great price. They are not as puncture resistant as some other tires due to their low bead count.
I use these tires on my rollers and so far so good, it took a while to break them in but now Im accustom to them. I also rode my bike with the same tires and I was surprised by the handling especially when cornering. For their value these tire perform well, just not sure about their durability over time on the road or the trainer. when the winter season will be over I will add another review about that aspect.
After reading the reviews for this tire, I bought a set to try. I'm very impressed with the tire and have about 800 miles on them so far with only 1 flat. For the money, this is a great training tire so far, the wear is similar to other, more expensive tire I've had in the past. That do inflate a little larger than what they indicate but you can just get the size smaller if that bothers you.
Similar to BikeUtah, I run 28's in the winter for the same reasons. The 28's also give a more plush ride which is helpful as I swear the macadam is harder and the roads bumpier in the winter. The tire is tough...I only lost one due to the conditions. The others I simply wore out with the rear tire going around 2,000 miles. I'm 6'2 230lbs.
One thing I did notice was a reduced top speed once in the 35 range (maybe lose 2-5mph). Not a big issue. What did surprise me was that not much extra effort is needed to spin these things as I have completed two centuries on this tire and did not feel like the tire was a factor.
Excellent quality for good looking tires,perfectly match my bicycle frame and others words looks like one art piece,I really recommend this tires for single speed bikes or any bike..
I bought this tire my single speed bike and I felt the difference on my first ride. I have about 300 miles on it and only gotten about 2 flats. It also has a bunch of slashes and cuts on it, but it has more cuts on it than I have gotten flats so I'm guessing this tire can resist allot of glass pieces and thorns. I also found a huge thorn that was deeply in on the side of the tire one time, I took it out and the tire didn't get flat or anything, stayed the same. I am very happy with this tire.
I changed from 35 mm to 28 mm on my hybrid, and after reading some reviews, decided on the Micheling Dynamic Sport Tire. I immediately loved the tires after mounting them and after a few hundred miles on them, I still do. It made a huge difference, I am faster and more mobile.
I have had the 23's on my road bike for almost a year now and have had zero problems. I ride on anything from smooth asphalt to dirt and pea gravel. They have about 1800 miles on them and will probably be due for a replacement in the next 500 miles or so. 2000-2500 miles out of a pair of road tires that cost $20 is an excellent value. Not races tires, but a great all around road tire that will last!
I bought this tire because it came on Bianchi Coast To Coast as original equipment and I was quite pleased with them. I got 1500 miles out of the original set with no flats and have about 700 miles with the set I purchased here, again with no flats so far and they look to be on track for a 1500 mile life. To me they have a good road feel and I will be purchasing these again!
