These tires are very interesting. The amazon photo shows some kind of treat, but they came as slicks. I got the black/black ones and I thought that the lack of tread would affect their road handling on wet pavement - but that was not the case. After about 1500 miles on these tires I changed them for gatorskins - there was nothing wrong with them, but I needed to install them on my GF's bike.

Comparing these to gatorskins is not fair for either tire. I actually like the Michelins more - they are a much faster tire and they held up very well against the terrible roads we have in MN. I had only one flat last season and that was from a gnarly puncture that left a small bolt sticking out of my rear tire. All that was required was to replace the tube and I did several hundred miles of riding after that with no problems. The only drawback is that they do look a little used by the end of the season - they still have a good deal of rubber left, but its just a visual thing.

Installing these is very normal for road tires - a herculean effort is not required. Just do it right. Also replace your rim-tape when installing new tires as I would expect most of the complaints of flats are from that (in general). Wet traction was not ideal, I have a few rear skids when biking in the rain, but be sensible - which tires are good for wet?

They are at a very good price compared to the competition.

I got the 700x23 because I wanted to test a smaller size on my 700x25 spec rims without spending a lot to see if the narrower tire would be a problem. They worked great! But you have to take road slicks for what they are: thin strips of rubber and belting with no forgiveness for nails, tacks, glass, sheet metal, and car parts. I was getting a flat a week on road slicks (other brands) until I learned that, unless you ride on a closed course, you have to use a tire liner with road slicks (I have used both the Tuffy and Slime models with ZERO flats in two years); there is something about the physics of a secondary layer that is more resistant to flats than a single thicker layer. At any rate, I had recently increased to 17 mph average on some moderately treaded tires I was testing out for semi-off road use. On the next ride after putting these back on, I averaged almost 18 MPH on the same ride (20 mile hilly round trip road commute to work). Some have said they "wouldn't ride these for racing" -- I say, why not? Like I said, I bought these to see if smaller tires would work without spending a lot before upgrading to a more expensive smaller tire. I think I'll just leave these on for a few years.

This tire is for paved surfaces. it consistently lasts 2,500 miles on
smooth to medium course roads. The price is fair.

Receive my product and a great time frame canyon outfitters did a great job sending me what I asked quickly and proficiently. these tires are great, greater runtimes then my previous set. These tires have already proven themselves to be better then my other road set. I would definitely buy from Canyon outfitters again.

These are great tires at an unbeatable price! These tires may look skinny and flimsey but I assure they work perfectly. Michelin makes great rubber and I will be buying this product again. Also the seller shipped this product in about 3 business days. Because I've had such a great experience with my Michelin's, my friends are planning on buying some too!

Having used Schwalbe blizzard sports for a while I found these tyres a great up grade!

The rolling resistance seems smoother and the feel of the bike is better. I don't know why these tyres get mixed reviews because for the money you cannot ask for more

Dry grip is as much as you would need I don't use my bike in the wet so I wouldn't know about wet grip

overall a great tyre, also very easy to fit over the Schwalbe's I had before- they were a nightmare. I fitted 2 of these in about 10 mins

5 stars +++++

It's a pretty good tire, it looks great and feels great riding, like there is little resistance. And despite the 'slickness' of the treads (or lack thereof) it does still work fine in the rain, both under power and stopping. I would still be careful under adverse conditions. On the road it's excellent, and seems to have good durability though I have gotten a few flats but it's kinda hard to blame the tire when you see a piece of beer glass sticking out of the tire, or a beer bottle cap jammed into the sidewall.

I have to disagree with the complaints regarding the traction on this tire. Wet or dry it is comparable to the Conti Ultra Sport or Ultra Race.
It is heavy but smooth rolling. I took a sharp pebble that tore mine up at ~2000 miles of use on the front where I usually get 3x that on the Contis.
Just one more point on a curve I can't construct with one tire.

Well, This is the tire i was looking for, in THIN-NESS. I couldn't find a tire thin enough to for my rim that would fit on the bike without hitting the bar. But this tire , LITERALLY HAS NO TREAD! Its completely flat and smooth lol. Im kinda scared to ride my bike with it lol. But it will work untill i find a better one. This tire is for RACING. not casual use
