Bought theses tires on sale.less then 300 miles on a set of tire get 3 fats.Won't
Buy them again. Went back to Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II 700c Road Tire.last set of Continentals put 2500 miles no flat.
I have been riding on Michelin Pro4 Endurance 700c x 25mm road tires for around 5 years. Western Bikeworks consistently has these tires available at good prices (around $36.00 per tire). I am an aggressive rider, about 200 pounds and find I get around 2500 to 3000 miles per tire. The tires rarely flat and I have found them to have very good riding performance and handling. I plan to be riding the Pro4 Endurance for the foreseeable future.
These tires are very gripping and stick to the road. I've often struggled to stay on the wheel in front of me when making a turn, but these tires have resolved that issue. I take turns at full speed that I couldn't have before.
I used the 25mm version on wider rims (Pacenti SL25, internal width 20mm) on a disc road bike for commute, and had great results. This seems to have the smoothest rolling among other wintertraining tires I've used so far Continental GP 4 seasons, Vitorria Rubino Pro G, Specialized Roubaix Pro.
I rode the previous set for 3200 miles. The rear tire began delaminating where the two types of rubber join. The front tire still shows just minor wear. No flats..feel confident this new pair will give me the same performance..
These tires are on my commuteraround town bike. I have only put about 100 miles on them. So far I am very happy with the way they handle and rolling resistance. I feel pretty confident descending on damp roads, not sure about wet roads yet. I have more confidence in these compared to my previous tires- Rubino Pro Control. Although I loved the durability- 2 punctures over the winter months, I never felt confident in their handling. Not sure yet on the Pro 4's durability.
I put these on as a replacement for Gatorskins. I bought a 25 for the front and a 28 for the rear (lower pressure, more cushioning, etc.). They seem to roll pretty well and I've had no flats and minimal wear over a few hundred miles. I run them on Velocity A23 rims. The front tire, a nominal 25, measures at 28mm with about 90 psi. However, the rear, a nominal 28, measures at 29 at 90 psi. I'm not sure why the 25 runs at almost the same width on the same rim as the 28. So, if you're thinking of buying some as they close out this model, you might want to take that into consideration.
I've ridden a few of these Michelin's and was initially very satisfied with them. Road feel is great, traction is excellent, but then there's the durability issue.
Given that the rubber is soft these tires started getting road cuts the first day I road them. Granted there is much debris on the roads, but this is the first tire that cuts so dang easily. The sidewalls are also so soft that it started to bulge out and very unsafe.
I've stopped buying these tires. So have my other riding buddies. I understand know why they're always on salem
Replaced Schwalbe Lugano 700x25 tires on a new Cannondale Synapse with these Pro 4 Endurance 700x25's based on reviews hoping to improve ride quality. These tires along with a couple of other upgrades significantly enhanced the ride quality of my new bike. The tires themselves are smooth rolling and lend towards a very comfortable ride (inflating to 95psi front, 85psi rear - I weigh 130lbs). The tires also lend confidence in control by responding predictably and gripping well in corners like a good tire should. As for flat protection, time will tell. I ride on pretty good roads and haven't had a flat yet, haven't put a whole bunch of miles on them yet either. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.
Over the past few years, I've used these tires on multiple road bike with great all around results. I put close to 5000 miles on these tires on a number of occasions with out any major issue. I have found the ride quality for a tires at this price point to be exceptional.
Rolls pretty well, very flat resistant, weight not too bad, especially since I use 25 to 28's. No problems with traction in wet conditions (I didn't push it). Didn't flat after rolling through a broken bottle, but that did cut up the rear tire a bit after about 1500 miles. Front tire looks great, still.
