Great quality, durability and puncture resistance.
F. Cruz
These tires for some reason are very hard to install, extreme forces and tire lever required to put the last bit onto the rim.
Li
Mine have over 1800 miles on them & are holding up great.

I just finished 2000 miles (rear tire) on one of these and couldn't be happier. I bought another one for replacement and could not mount it onto my wheel. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that this Krylion that I had just bought had a slightly thicker bead than my other one (bought about 1 year ago) and was made in Taiwan instead of France. I ended up putting this tire on a different bike since I could not mount it on my Campy wheel (after destroying 3 tubes and 3 tire levers). I'm sure the "new" Krylion will otherwise be as good as my last one, but I don't think I will buy these again- at least not for this bike.

I love this tire ! It handles better than the older carbon tires and will grip the road on tight turns.I can go 60 or 70 miles in a day and never worry about a flat.Great colors as well!!

with less than 100 miles on a tire had a small rock/pebble/something created a blowout in the sidewall while riding on pavement. They may be nice, light and puncture resistant but my original tires lasted for probably 1500 miles before I got these to replace them. If you buy these carry a sidewall patch (duck tape/dollar bill) and a spare tube (or two). I will probably replace my blown out Krylion with something else......

I found the performance of these Michelin tires to be adequate. There doesn't seem to be too much in the way of rolling resistance and they grip the road well. The road seems to have eaten these tires up...I have less than 1,000 miles on it and the tires are full of holes--that may say something about the quality of roads out here in Hawaii. I'm getting a flat every time I ride. My next tire will be something a little sturdier.

Bought a pair of Krylions about eight months ago for my commuter bike with Bontrager wheels. They are a freakin' wonderful tire!--easy to install, no flats, smooth ride, fast ride. I have about 1000 miles on this first pair.
Fast forward to this month, I decide to purchase a pair for my, and my wife's, road bikes. I had read several reviews on other bike component sites which mentioned that the Krylions were nearly impossible to mount on some rims. I decide to buy them anyway, as they've worked so well on my commuter bike.

The new Krylions arrive in the mail, I install them on my road bike, they are a bit tight but I am able to mount them by hand on my rims; Mavic Ksyrium Equipes.
I now start to mount the first Krylion on my wife's road bike with Oval W wheels. The new Krylions are nowhere near close to fitting the rim. -- I scratch my head look at the size, "yup, 700x23," I look at her old cheap Vittoria Zaffiro tires, "yup, they are also 700x23."

Long story short, 90 minutes, two nasty bloody cuts on my hand and one popped tube later I still cannot get these Krylions on this &*$@$*+ Oval rim!! I scratch my head again, curse some more, and put her old Vittoria tire back on, by hand, in less than 5 minutes.

Next day I take the Krylions to my local bike mechanic/guru. This guy has been in the bike trade over 30 years. I hand him the new Krylions and my wife's wheels and, after 15 minutes, the Krylions have this veteran bike mechanic cussing like a sailor.....they still won't mount!!!
My mechanic pulls out the heavy iron; a sliding manual tire changing bar, a homemade, smaller version of what you might use on a motorcycle tire; the Krylions still will -NOT- mount.

I weigh 165 lb. and commute 33 miles/day roundtrip from San Jose to Fremont, CA, putting around 7000mi/year on my Madone. I ride with the Pro3 on the front and for the past 6 months with the Krylion on my rear. I bought this for the rear because it's touted as a long life tire and the Pro3 was flatting too easily (no problem with the Pro3 on the front though).

I have 2 problems with this tire.

First, it's extremely tight to put on put. Unless you have the strength to tear a telephone book in half forget about trying to flip this tire over the rim without tire levers (this is something I miss from when I was using Bontragers). This is annoying since I often have to replace the inner tube after dark, and it's not easy to see the tube hanging over the rim. Hence, I've punctured several inner tubes while replacing them because the tube gets caught between the rim and the lever.

Second, when the tire does flat it seems to do so explosively. I'm pumping it to 110 psi so I'm not overinflating. However, in just 6 months I'm on my third Krylion. The first tire had a slice that destroyed it. That's just bad luck, but the tear seemed to go well beyond where the slicing took place. The second tire had only a puncture which a patch on the tube should have been able to fix, but again the tear went well beyond the initial point of failure and the tire was destroyed. I'm using up the last Krylion in my stock and I won't be buying this tire again. My feeling with this tire is that the protective strips have poor tearing resistance.

My next rear tire will be the Continental Grand Prix 4-Season which has 2 protective layers of vectran. Hopefully this has enough strength to handle the rigors of city commuting.
