Good traction tire

I needed a tire that I can use on the neighborhood road as well as some biking on the trail. This tire fits the bill. The only downside I saw, that I had trouble to have the tire properly set on the rim. I had to get back and forth letting some of the air out and pumping back until it was properly centered.

These tires roll easily on pavement, but can handle dirt roads & gravel. The wide pressure range makes adjustment for different rides easy.

Heavy but easy rolling

I installed the 1.6 x 26 on my old mountain bike which is used primarily for street riding. It is advertised as 1.6 inches in width but is more like 1.75. It is a heavy tire but appears very sturdy. It rolls smoothly yet is able to absorb the shock from some of the rough roads on my daily ride. The tread will work on hard pack and gravel.

They roll well on pavement and grip well on sand

This is the older tread pattern of the Michelin Protek. The newer one looks like it is aimed at mostly pavement � with shallow sipes for water deflection and a smooth rolling surface. This one is a better fit for where I ride. My commute gives me the option of pavement or sandy trails, without much rain. On pavement these tires do well enough � they roll quietly, so there cannot be that much power lost to squirm. But they also have enough grip to push through sand when I take the trails. I like them. No flats yet.

Bought these for a pair of 20 year old bikes we keep at the beach. They replaced the original partially rotting tires that served valiantly in the salty ocean air. Tires installed easily and look great. Probably doubled the value of the bikes with the new tires and tubes. Hoping to get another 20 years out of them and me.

Good all purpose, trail and paved surfaces, bullet proof, kinda heavy

Mounted on my all-purpose 26 inch hard fork/hard tail fitness and commute mtn bike. Bulletproof, great traction on all surfaces including crushed limestone and sand trails, absorbs some shock as it's semi-fat. I run other, lighter, narrower Michelin tires on competition bike. I'm 5'11" and 220 so a little more weight on trail/commute tires isn't a factor.

In south west Florida the trails are asphalt with areas covered with sand, so far I have not had any instances where the tires have failed to maintain their grip. Also, property owners are required to provide the sidewalks, but many are grandfathered out of the requirement and it is good to have some tread to navigate the sand paths that result. The reflective strip is also asset considering the lack of streetlights. Instalation was a snap and the product's quality is obvious.

Sturdy, but at cost

This has a well designed thread pattern for "go every where" purpose. I bought a pair to be used as my city bike. The writings on the wall of the tire indicate the tire is designed for e-bikes, which, in theory, should not make any difference in fit and use. I believe the designers had sturdiness in mind with thicker tire material to resist puncture. However, the sturdiness came at a cost... its weight. This may not matter much on an e-bike which you don't need to worry too much about pedaling, but it does to a regular bike to some degree if you are someone like me...a picky person. I just thought there was big difference between the one I was replacing with this one. Otherwise, it should give a long tread life. I also like its reflective side wall stripes.

I needed new tires after a blow out on my front tire , I ordered these tires ,but was having a hard time getting them on the rim correctly . these tires have a reflector strip and it was clear that the stripe wasn't even . I didn't have any experience with changing tires , so I thought maybe I ordered the wrong tire for my rims . I called the help line and someone answered on the first ring. Unbelievable . In a few minutes the technician assured me the tires were correct and told me what I was doing wrong. Problem solved . I have over 300 miles on them with no problems .Good traction on hard gravel bike path and I was surprised how well these rolled compared to my old tires

So far...150 or so miles on a 100cc 2-stroke equipped '99 Magna. Whether it's tarmac or dime-size gravel country roads. At 30-40mph the gravel is giving you a slight squiggle in the rear. WEEEE!!!

Great heavy city bike tire
rating
by Paul

This is a great heavy-duty city bike tire. I put a pair of the 1.6 tires on a bike for my parents, and I liked them so much I bought another pair for my around town bike. I also took them on a 15 mile gravel ride and they performed well on dry fire roads. The tread rolls quietly on pavement. The only down side is that the tires are quite heavy and it gives the bike a slightly sluggish feel compared to a racing tire, but hopefully it will make up for that in puncture resistance.

Great tire for my pedal assist roadtrail bike.
rating
by D. Nelson

1 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I wanted a narrower tire for my pedal assist electric bike that would work well on both roads and rail trails. I had been using a 1.75 inch width mountain bike tire that was wearing out and I wanted something lighter but still substantial and a little wider than a 1.5 inch tire. This is it. The extra width and tread pattern have worked out great for my recreational rides each week. I can ride on the flat with the motor turned off and use less power for many of the hills in the area to enure I get good exercise. At the same time, I can always ride, even if I am a little tired or under the weather or face steeper hills since I can crank up the pedal assist whenever I want.

Shipped sooner than expected, which only meant one last ride on the old knobbies to buy tubes. They installed easy enough, speed and weight improvements are noticeably favorable. Pleasantly surprised by the reflective sidewall strips! Today I'll get to check their performance in the rain!
