Secure Traction, Solid Puncture Protection & Peace Of Mind

The new Michelin Lithion 3 Road Tire builds on the success of previous models, offering enhanced traction and a supple ride, no matter what the weather conditions. It features a lightweight build and offers exceptional durability thanks to a two-tone silica compound and proprietary tread with a smooth center and chevron shoulder rubber for suppleness, grip, and confident cornering.

Two-tone Silica - a unique herringbone tread with a smooth centre and chevron shoulder rubber for suppleness, grip, and rolling performance.

Overlapped 60 TPI ESC - extra supple casing reinforced with puncture resistant crown ply for a comfortable ride with puncture resistance.

High-Density Casing (HDC) - special overlapping ply designed carcass with a 3x60 TPI density, which helps achieve the ideal balance between efficiency, comfort, puncture resistance, and off-road casing durability.

High Protect Rim System (HPRS) - protective strip that protects the bead area against wear from the rim.

SW Lightweight Skinwalls - casing layers surrounded by a thin coat of rubber for weight-saving.

Michelin Quality and Value`

I have been a long time rider, and my tire of choice is Michelin. I have a lot of experience with the Michelin Lithion 2 road tires, and this is the replacement version of the Lithion series. It seems to be at least as good as the Lithion 2, and I really like the look of the red sidewall. I have about 300 miles on this new tire, and it seems to be very durable, and so far no punctures. Future problems withstanding, this will be my new go-to tire for daily training and club riding.

Great All-around Tire

This is the third set I've bought. These tires are lightweight (I'm an endurance rider), ready to mount, they corner well, and I've only had 1 flat with them. You won't be disappointed.

The Michelin tread patterns suit the style of cruising and hard cornering I'm used to as an old school rider. They're tight and round for positive contact. Coming down a hill into a fast turn without scrubbing off speed makes the next rise that much quicker. A center ridge has always seemed to have low rolling resistance and a quick response for dodging whatever. I've got this tire on the front. The 25-622 really is a 25mm width. Paired with a Continental Grand Prix 5000 on the rear (a 30-622 that's 28mm wide), the Michelin looks sleek and substantial. The foldable bead seated solidly, worth the effort to get the visible line to rise into place. A black marker pared down the big logos that came on both tires.

Michelin lithion 3 is a long wearing, grippy quality tire

I use this quality tire on a road bike. They can last 2k+ miles. The only downside is that they are a little tough to put on.

I was having trouble with flat tires riding as much as I do from May to November. Small glass shards were getting through and puncturing the tube until I found the Michelin Lithion 3 Road Tire. I put in 4000 outside miles and had 8 flats this year which 7 more than I have been averaging over the years. This tire has not had a flat since I put them on in early August! A little heavier but worth it for the protection!
