Blows away the gator skin cement tires that are hard as rocks and made my back and neck ache. Michelins break in fast and out handle the competion especially on technical downhill joints. Awesome in heavy rain also.
Plus colors in 25mm that make both our carbon bikes stand out amongst the wankers in SoCal
Great tire that feels super fast on smooth roads... not so great on rough roads or chip seal. Thick contact patch but super thin sidewall. Keeps them light. Tough to ride at lower air pressure because the tire lacks sidewalk stability and almost feels like it will roll or wiggle a little bit. Fast tire at high pressure on smoothie roads.
With 100 miles on these tires, there is no sign of wear. The downside is that I would not want to change a tube on the side of the road. Installing them at home, I pinched two tubes and resorted to using Schwalbe Easy Fit to get them on. Even then, I had to stretch the last part on with a tire lever. I lost the Schwalbe One's I replaced to a rock strike on the sidewall. These tires have a very similar road feel and, hopefully, better durability.
