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 tires are very gripping and stick to the road. I've often struggled to stay on the wheel in front of me when making a turn, but these tires have resolved that issue. I take turns at full speed that I couldn't have before.
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
I rode the previous set for 3200 miles. The rear tire began delaminating where the two types of rubber join. The front tire still shows just minor wear. No flats..feel confident this new pair will give me the same performance..
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!
These tires are on my commuteraround town bike. I have only put about 100 miles on them. So far I am very happy with the way they handle and rolling resistance. I feel pretty confident descending on damp roads, not sure about wet roads yet. I have more confidence in these compared to my previous tires- Rubino Pro Control. Although I loved the durability- 2 punctures over the winter months, I never felt confident in their handling. Not sure yet on the Pro 4's durability.
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.
