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 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 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.
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.
Tire was easy to mount on rim, is very puncture resistant (high TPI), and has a low rolling resistance. I like that the Pro 4 comes with various sidewall colors too. Plus the WBW price was very competitive too. What's not to like?
