Given that Michelin make 12 different models of road bike tires is there any particular model you are asking about?

I, ve got the krylion cqrbon on one bike and they, ve been brilliant although now discontinued. On my other bike I, ve got the pro endurance 4 which again have been superb no reason to look elsewhere when they give up the ghost. Good on our terrible roads and weather. Others will no doubt give more advice on the racier models.

Very different models but yes, they are good. I tend to stick to this brand as I find their puncture resistantce & performance to be good, generally speaking. I like Krylions & the Pro Race models.

I have pro race 4 service course and they're excellent. Switched from conti gp4000

To throw in some anecdotal evidence, I like my Pro3, generally used for racing and dry riding, hate my pro4 'endurance', cut on glass in the wet very easily and love my conti 4s, used in all conditions.
