Replacing Michelin's popular City Tire, the Protek takes up right where this venerable tire left off.

With a tread that is optimized to roll smoothly and still provide grip on both pavement and dirt roads, this tire proves its worth commuting and touring. 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.

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 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 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.

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.

SMOOTH RIDE!

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!

Tough & Cheap but Heavy

I've run this tire (28mm) on the front wheel of an 80's Motobecane Grand Jubilee. Measuring 29 mm at 80 PSI, it is wider than any other "28mm" tire I've tried. I liked the extra width up front to traverse over road imperfections but it seemed a bit heavy. I've since switched it to the rear and put a lighter tire up front. I feel the Protek will perform well in the rear. In the few miles I rode it, I experienced no flats. If you don't care much about the weight, it's a good choice. I plan on using it on the newly finished Rock Island Trail east of Kansas City. I have high hopes for it there as well as elsewhere around the city.

They remind me of much more expensive touring tires sold by a German manufacturer. They roll well and have nice rounded shoulders for leaning into turns. Other reviewers had noted they run a bit large. I generally run 35s and that is the size I bought but my bike has very minimal brake and fender clearance and If I get another set they will be 32s. Otherwise I am completely pleased.

I have ridden over 24,000 miles; mostly in Colorado, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I have used a number of different tires along the way. These tires perform as well or better than any I have used. The reflective strip is a nice touch that really "lights up" in a car's headlights and makes me feel a bit safer.
