Good traction tire
rating
by Manfred
Casual Cyclist
Delray Beach, FL

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.

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

Great heavy city bike tire
rating

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.

I purchased these tires for my sons bike and his rides to school, the park, and the Dollar Store and taco Bell. All are about 1.5 miles away and mostly paved with some dirt and gravel. He could not be happier with them and they seem to be lasting extremely well.

I like their size and the way they run on the crushed lime road, not terribly grippy but it gives you some warning on how far you can go on the wet road, so I like it!

Great tire for my pedal assist roadtrail bike.
rating
by D. Nelson
Casual Cyclist
Bellingham, WA

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.

This tread design is very adaptable to road conditions. I am wary of any slick flat tread designs because of the frequent wet weather in my town, but these tires have adequate grip. Easy to install. I trust the Michelin brand.

Replaced 2 inch wide tires rated for 60 with these tires. The new tires are rated for 87 p.s.i. I am currently running 80 p.s.i. in the tires. I have logged around 80 miles in the last week. The tires have great grip, but are also very smooth and quiet. I would highly recommend these tires. I do not ride at night, but the reflective sidewalls look great on a black bike.Jazz
