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

Perfect for Urban/Gravel Bike

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'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!

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.

Installed a pair of these on a 21 year old Trek I picked up. Required a little bit of finessing to install (had a little trouble with getting the valve part of the tube inside the tire during mounting (the tire wouldn't completely seat until I removed and remounted the tire.

Once installed, I'm impressed with how smoothly these roll. Only have about 50 miles on them so far, but will probably buy more for other bikes in the family.

The reflective stripe is a plus.

These Michelins replaced the OEM Bont 700x45. The Protek have a better ride along with good traction and little rolling resistance. Would buy again.

Runs great and looks good too. Nice road feel and not blocky or rigid feeling. I run these on a 1100w Cannondale BadBoy at 60 psi front and 66 rear. Handles grass, sand, urban chunky streets, and WOT runs sustained at 35mph no problem. I also like that this tire doesn't sing and doesn't feel heavy even though it weighs a little more. I've never had a thorn in 1500 miles so ProTek works good on and off road. Can't say that about Kenda and Conti urban bike tires.

I just moved to a new location that has a bike trail close by. Inspecting my "old tires" I saw the evidence of "dry rot"..... That said, I decided that some new tires & tubes would be required for the newer, higher speed conditions. I like Michelin products and have them on all of my vehicles, so why not give them a try on my road bike? The tires were fairly easy to install and yielded a SMOOTHER RIDE! The "reflective band" on the side of the tires make them kind of cool looking as well. Peace of mind and money well spent!

Nice tires - ride smoothly. Extra tread will reduce flats from debris on urban roads. These were heftier than the original road tires so required a bit of maneuvering to install - had to deflate then inflate once mounted on bike but they did fit.
