Lightweight, fast rolling tire with good road feel and traction. Better sidewall durability than Conti. Wear life is reasonable for a light, fast tire. They're not the ultimate low rolling resistance tire, but the combination of wear life, rolling resistance and price can't be beat.
I use this tire for training (100- 150 miles per week) and get good mileage out of these tires. They handle really well on fast downhill curves like a racing tire and yet resist flats well like a training tire should. And the bonus - great colors.
Superb dry grip, decent durability, reasonable puncture protection.
In my opinion, the best all around training tires at this price point. I trust these tires for high speed cornering. When WBW has these on sale, they are the best value anywhere.
I have been riding on both of my bikes these tires for numerous years. (TREK carbon & KLEIN Quantum) I have them mounted on ROLF VIGORS rims. They are fast yet sticky for safely hammering corners.
its wider than the size 25mm that the manufacturer claims.. its more of a 28mm size tire... Luckily it clears my road frame.. Otherwise i would recommend for cruisintraining tire..
I started using the Michelin Pro4 Service tires at the recommendation of a friend after having a really bad experience with some Conti tires. The beads are really flexible, so it's really easy to service a flat on the road. The tires feel really nice when cornering, and the puncture resistance so far has been great.
I bought these tires for a bike I was riding on weekends for an upgrade in performance. The bike I was commuting with finally bit the dust and I decided to start riding the weekend bike to work. I just put new tires on after deciding that the old ones had worn a little too thin and the shape was rather flat. Honestly, I could probably get away with a few hundred more miles, but don't want to risk it. There were several small cuts from all the riding, but only one reached the cord (it was from a very sharp glass shard I picked up in a parking lot a few months back). I estimate that I got about 3500 miles out of them, and most of those miles were commuting. I rode all through winter and in some poor conditions. They held up beautifully and gave me a much longer life than I ever expected. I did notice that they seemed to wear quickly for the first 200-300 miles, but then they wore slowly for the rest of their life. I have no complaints to make-they're quite fast, corner well, and feel good on the road. Incidentally, I bought the tires with the white accent, despite riding in all kinds of conditions, I didn't have much trouble keeping them pretty clean. I highly recommend these tires!
I've been buying these tires mainly due to quality and price. Sometimes they last a long time, but my last pair started splitting at the sidewall seam. I think I may go to Gatorskins.
I have done a couple of metric centuries on these tires so far with no issues. They have a soft feel to them and they spin up nicely. I can't speak to longevity yet but they don't show much wear yet. I have already purchased an additional set on sale for replacements when the time comes.
This is my favorite tire, I use it on all 4 of my bikes. It works well all year around here in sunny Florida wet or dry, I get flats once in while but so does everyone else in the group I ride with using other brands like continental gator skin. Will recommend it to anyone looking for a fast tire
