Mounted these tires on my 1999 Schwinn Circuit 853 road bike. I've run three other sets of these tires on this bike. They are responsive, comfortable and a good value for the money. I've run one set through to the cords...they last a good while. I'd recommend these tires for training, touring and the occasional racegroup ride.
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!
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
Bought theses tires on sale.less then 300 miles on a set of tire get 3 fats.Won't
Buy them again. Went back to Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II 700c Road Tire.last set of Continentals put 2500 miles no flat.
Dozens of tires on hundreds of roads for tens of thousands of miles - and Michelin Pro 4 Endurance tires are my favorite! Smooth riding with great grip in any conditions make these tires really good - their long life makes them great!
New to road cycling (mtb), when it was time to replace the original tires on my Defy Advanced I begin getting opinions from my riding buds. Most were riding Continental of Michelins. The endurance pro Michelin was on sale so I bought a few. Very pleased after running through a pair. I got about 3,000 miles on the front and 2,000 on the rear. Now riding a new set Im very confident of their handling ability and endurance. Will purchase again
I have been using these tires for a while now and like them until they reach their practical useful limit of about 1500 miles when they start to puncture easily. I rotate the tires at about 700 miles. This is acceptable to me as I generally get them when they are on sale at a very good pricevalue in my opinion. I go thru 2 or 3 sets a year. I had been using 23s but decided to try 25s for the first time. The 25s are a bit heavier but seem to have a more comfortable ride. I will probably stick with the 25s and hope the wear is as good if not better.
