These tires are on my road bike. I like the durability of the tire. I ride on the shoulder of many county roads in my area. Most of them have quite a bit of gravels and debris. Plus, the tire hold air for longer periods much longer than other brands.
I've used 5 of these tires over the past couple years. My weight runs between 210-215 pounds, averaged 2,550 miles on two of them. Only 1,200 miles on one due to sidewall damage (rider error - hit a fist sized rock). Total miles for the last two is pending, the past 3-4 months I was getting flats on almost every ride, including multiple flats on a couple rides. Always found the cause, typically thorns or road debris. After flatting one mile from the finish of a recent big event ride, I'd reached the breaking point. I'm trying out a set of crocodilian-themed tires
I purchased these for Fall and winter as they have a better puncture resistant makeup when compared to the Comp. So far they have great grip and very light weight with no punctures to date. The small amount of tread there is can be found on the sides of the tire and good for mixed road conditions. If you ride in the rain and snow I would look for their next model that has more tread and designed for these conditions.
I really like these tires. I heard others say they had problems with mounting them but that was not the case with mine. From the very first ride i was sold. I wouldn't hesitate buying these. The roll and feel is outstanding.
very hard to mount,I also destroyed a tube mounting them .They are still holding air in my basement. I don't want to ride them , I am afraid of having a flat out on the road.
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.
