I first bought a pair of these tires a few years ago when my Continentals wore out. They were an immediate improvement in handling, speed, and rolling resistance. They lasted much longer than I expected, and I was commuting over 100 miles a week on them.
This, when the tires on my new bike died on a patch of broken glass, I decided to go back to the Pro4s. Since getting them, Ive found them to be durable and smooth as before, but this time they dont seem as fast, and theres actually more rolling resistance. I have think their formula has changed, so I wouldnt recommend these anymore if youre looking to go faster. They do wear well and hold the road nicely.
Love these tires. I have been riding Michelin Pro Comps for many years and they continiously perform exceptionally well. They provide a smooth ride, great control through the corners and thave the protection of kevlar to resist punctures.
I use this tire for training (100- 150 miles per week) and get good mileage out of these tires. They handle really well on fast downhill curves like a racing tire and yet resist flats well like a training tire should. And the bonus - great colors.
Nice light tire with a grippie tread. However durability is an issue on rough roads with any gravel or rocks. The sidewalls just cant take it. The most I got out of two sets of these tires is 2250 KM.
These tires are great. Their description is exactly what you get. I have use Pro3 Race 700x23c for the past 10 years on several bikes and wanted to try the Pr03 700x25c hoping for a little more cushion and cornering grip. These do both. I lost no speed going to the wider tire. Very happy with the tires and the whole transaction. Smooth & Fast. Thank You.
I have been riding on both of my bikes these tires for numerous years. (TREK carbon & KLEIN Quantum) I have them mounted on ROLF VIGORS rims. They are fast yet sticky for safely hammering corners.
I bought a pair of these for a recent foray back into road racing, and they're just as good as I remember from my collegiate days. Quick rolling, grippy (after a brief break-in period, maybe 50 miles or so), and nice and high volume. Would highly recommend for your racing needs!
I ran Michelin Pro 2 tires for years on both of my road bikes and loved them, but the Pro 3s were extra difficult to get on and off the rims and seemed to result in flats more often then I had with the Pro 2s, so I moved away from them for a few years. I went back to the Pro 4s as they were on sale and I decided to give them a go. I was pleasantly surprised, they grip as good as ever, are much easier to apply and remove from the rims and the 4s are very durable and I got a couple thousand miles, at the least from the tires. This is a significant improvement. I was so impressed with the Pro 4s that they are once again my go to tire and I run them exclusively on my road bikes. The tire is great value and well worth the price. I highly recommend it.
I have a time trial bike with white accents, so I searched high and low for white-rimmed tires which were highly rated, light weight, and puncture resistant. I used to ride on Michelin Pro3 Race tires, and then switched to Continental Grand Prix Grand Prix 4000S. Now I'm back to Michelin Pro4 Service Course and I'm pleased with them so far.
