Protek Yourself From Flats

The Michelin Protek is one of the French tire giant's most longstanding urban/touring models, and it's lasted the test of time for a reason. Between the excellent puncture protection, low rolling resistance, and excellent siping for rainy days, the Protek is your perfect commuting partner.

With a tread that is optimized to roll smoothly, while still providing excellent grip on both pavement and dirt roads, the Protek shines above its competitors.

Its 1mm thick reinforcement also helps keep road debris at bay, so if all goes to plan, commutes will go without a hitch (or at least without a flat).

A reflective strip on the sidewall also lends some extra visibility for added safety during low light conditions.

The Michelin Protek 700c Tire is available in 700c x 28, 32, 35, 38, and 40mm sizes (ISO 28-622, 32-622, 37-622, 40-622, 42-622).

Please note that in the larger sizes the ISO measurement is 2mm larger than the common (700c) size printed on the sidewall.

Features:

  • 1mm thick puncture barrier
  • Reflective strip on the sidewall
  • Remarkable grip on both pavement and dirt roads
  • Excellent for commuting, bike paths, & other touring applications

This is a fine tire and it's not made in China. Delivery was prompt and on schedule. I installed it myself (1st time I've done that) and saved lots of money.

I am converting my old road bike to an urban/gravel bike. These tires are the perfect replacement of 700x28 road tires! They fit my road bike forks/frame with slightly wider, tougher, higher traction tires. Easy to mount, look great!

I ride 30 plus miles a day for pleasure in and around Michigan's trails. These tires are superior in ride and performance to my previous tires. The narrow band white wall looks good and glows at night for added safety.

I use the bike mainly on paved streets and bike paths. Occasionally on gravel. The reflective sidewalls really light up when light hits them and makes for a safer ride at night.

I have a town bike with big folding panniers and a large rack bag that I use to get groceries (just fits two large bags of groceries and a six-pack in the rack bag) - about 40 lb with no load. These tires carry the load easily yet are lighter and have much lower rolling resistance than the others I have tried on this bike. I absolutely recommend them!

We bought the 32mm Protek from WesternBikeWorks as a Deal of the day. We have it on the rear wheel of our road tandem to see if a lower pressure wider tire will reduce vibration compared to 28mm Gatorskins. Team and tandem weigh just under 400 pounds and we wear rear tires quickly. Weve put over 700 miles on the Protek and were very pleased with the ride, rolling resistance and flat protection.

I only have had them on my bike for a couple hundred miles, but Ive put them through the wringer. They have great traction in wet and sloppy weather and provide an ultra-smooth ride over chuckhole-covered streets. These were a perfect investment to allow me to ride my cross bike year round.

I was getting a lot of flats riding in town on 25cm slicks (Continentals) so I wanted a slightly larger tire with a beefier tread. I bought two 28cm Protek 700cc tires, but so far have only installed the back one. On my 2012 Cannondale CAAD12, a no-frills aluminum road bike, this larger tire BARELY fit in the rear chain stay. I had to trim the rubber whiskers off the tire because they made an audible "ting" striking the stay; I also had to limit pressure to 70psi, and center the tire and rim carefully. But it all worked! I've done a couple hundred miles with no flats. The tire is very straight and smooth, more than my previous tires, although it does weigh nearly twice as much. Totally worth it - feels secure and roadworthy. I'll switch the front next time I have a flat.

The tire runs smooth and is very quiet on trails. Mounted easily and seems like a good tire. It also runs true, and I really like the reflective stripe. Nice tread pattern. I trust the Michelin brand name on my SUV too. I would have paid extra for the Max with more anti flat protection if buying another but, for this sale price it was hard to pass up.

I've been using Michelin tires for years and have never had a tire failure (or even a flat tire) over the thousands of miles my wife and I have ridden. These tires are mounted on our converted Mountain/Touring bikes, hauling 35 to 50 extra pounds of gear with no problem. I also like the small reflective band that goes around each side of the tire. Very noticeable at night, which we do a lot of riding in the evenings/night. It's a good tire!

You would not put these on a road bike to spin on long rides, but if you are a commuter, or riding on short trips and busy streets these are great tires that can stand up to the potholes. Best part are the reflective sidewalls and the price. Plus they are a name brand,

This tire has been fantastic so far except for getting a couple of flats. It was easy to install, rolls easily, and is easy to dismount to repair flats. Value for price is very high. I would consider buying this again. I've yet to have a bicycle tire that never had a flat.

In 80,000 miles of cycling I've never had a worse experience. These tires are nearly impossible to mount & remove. Had 7 flats in 3 weeks after installing these tires. They are going in the trash & I will purchase something else.

The Michelin Protek tire is the best value for my hybrid bike. Each day after work, I ride twenty miles During the .winter months, half of my ride is in the dark and sometimes in wet conditions. I have peace of mind knowing that cars can see me because of the reflective sidewall; they have excellent channeling of rainwater and high puncture resistance. Not too difficult tire to mount, a durable tire at a great price. My go-to tire for my hybrid.
