Description

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

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 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 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 been running these tires (700-32) for years on my commuter bike and have had only 1 flat. I ride on gravel trails, asphalt and occasionally dirt.

They are extremely long lasting and I just bought this last one to complete a set of 2 for my bike, since I am ready to change both front and rear this time. They are both showing lots of little cuts and you never know when a sharp rock will get lucky and enter the tire through one of these cuts and cause a flat. I highly recommend these tires from Michelin.

Using these tires on our everyday bikes, excellent service
rating
by Gordon

We have used these for years for everyday riding. These work well on every day roads, good considering the cracks and potholes. Also fat enough to work fine in sandy areas of the parks and on the edge of the beach.

The newer version of these tires run wider than labelled 40 mm vs 38 mm size. The newest version is Ebike certified which now raised the max inflation.

This is a low end touring tire from a major brand. It has a garden variety tread pattern. Michelin wants me to run higher pressures than the worn out Continentals I took off. I don't like high pressures. The Vees on my 700c wheeled Lombardo say 'inflate to 40 psi.' Those tires provide a soft ride, good traction, and have given me zero trouble in 9 years. These boring tires will convert a sporty hybrid into a dumpy commuter bike. The Michelin tires are not as symmetrical as I had hoped, and a drunk must have painted the reflective strips. Michelin is living off their name and the Chinese tire companies will bury them. I grudgingly allow 3 stars because of the excellent grippy rubber compound.

This tire is on my winter bike that accommodates wider tires for additional stability while cornering and riding on paved roads that may be wet, have irregular surfaces or various types of impediments (leaves, twigs) strewn on the pavement.

I am completely satisfied with these tires. They roll well, the ride is comfortable and they fell stable while cornering.

No one will win the Tour de France with these tires, however, I doubt anyone riding in the Tour de France would use an urban tire. It is what it is, and it does what it is supposed to do.

I've used 700x28 and 700x32 sizes of the Michelin Protek. Both ride well. Certainly better traction with the 700x32, which one would expect.

My wife uses the 700x32 on her Trek FX 7.2.

They are heavy. However, I average 10 to 11 mph with either size on a Cannondale Quick 4, which maybe isn't bad for a 64 year old rider.

Contrary to others, they are easy to install. At least once, maybe twice, I installed one of these tires without levers.

I had trouble with one tire. After at least one season of use, every tube I put in one tire would incur a pin hole puncture. I wiped and re-wiped the inside of the tire before installing the new tube. Each time, after a few hours riding, puncture. I put the tire on the other wheel. After a few months riding, puncture.

It' a Michelin. Its a quality tire. It does what Mich and Michelle say it will do.
