Just ordered my second set. Current tires have 2,000 miles, and might give another 1,000. Pro 4 tires seem to be more resistant to flats than others I have used in this price range (Hutchinson, Vittoria). Grip is very good. Ride is stiffer than the aforementioned, but not by much. I tend to be rather hard on tires, and am quite pleased to get this kind of mileage.
I am using the Michelin pro 4 and I just found no reason not to keep using it. It performs great at all conditions and the most important - it's light in weight!
Pro 4 Service Course is the best tire I have ridden by far. Michelin just keeps getting better and better with their pro race series.
After riding on Continental 4000 tires for years I'll never go back after using these Michelins for a season. Very smooth and absolutely NO cuts in my tires after 4000klms. They wear well and are great in the rain. I did rotate the front to back after 1500 klms which definitely helps the wear factor. Nice looking on my ENVE rims as well.
Used these tyres to ride Les Grandes Alps from Geneva to Nice and had no problems on either the ascents or descents.
I really like these tyres! They roll well have excellent grip in the corners even in the wet!!!
I use Michelin tubes with them and hardly ever puncture but I don't over inflate them either.
These tyres don't last forever but you cant have everything and I would rather change a tyre more often than slip-slide and puncture!...
Early days as far as durability is concerned (I found the Pro 3's too fragile on poor roads) but the comfort, grip and rolling resistance are excellent.
A great tyre for racing, low rolling resistance and super grip on corners. To get the best out of these tyres use Michelin Latex inner tubes, a more than "marginal gain" for only a few extra quid.
Tight on the rim, but great rollers
Excellent, with somewhat better grip (Especially in wet) compared to the Conti 4000s I have been using in the past.
Merlincycles fast as always with shipping.
Nice tyres, look good and light. Appear to be a bit more robust when compared to Schwalbe Ultremo's which I also own and roll as well. Good feeling of corner grip. Recommended.
Superb quality tyres. Excellent grip in wet weather. I would buy this product every time.
pro 4 race.. nothing to complain.. just get it.... no regret.
Light, run well. Seem to have pretty decent mileage too.
Thought I'd give these michelin tyres a try when I was due to renew my tyres and I'm glad I did. I didn't think I would notice any diference from my last, budget, tyres but you definately do. They roll superbly and have lots of grip. Against the stop clock they are a lot quicker. Glad I made the upgrade.
can't comment on endurance as I've only just got them, fingers crossed.
So far so good, can't say anything bad about these tires, a little hard to put on the rim but it's not a big issue.
Slick French Rubber
My second pair of Pro 4s. Great feel and grip. Good wear; about 4500 km on country roads.
Really nice tyre, rolls very well and thankfully grips well in the wet (that's all they have seen since I purchased them).
The profile appears to smooth out your entry and exit into and out of bends, in fact I would say they are great at building up confidence, just take it slowly.
My last tyres were Ultremo's which also rolled very well, but produced a lot of tyre noise on rough roads, so much so I purchased the Michelins as the tyre noise was such a pain, the Pro 4's appear to have a harder compound centre line so I would expect them to outlast the Ultremo's (only time will tell).
Weight wise I cant feel anything in it and my scales are not good enough quality to start quoting, if I had to bet on it the Pro 4's maybe a needle width heavier say 200 Vs 205grms.
Clearly better weather and more time on the road is needed, but for now things are looking very promising, the Pro 4's are certainly much quieter and appear to offer at least a similar level of grip, more time needed for lastability comments.
Thanks again to Merlin and their legendary super speedy service, price as always up with the best of them. GB
Running on them now for a week, first impression a bit firmer than 4000S but positive feel, good cornering seem good in wet. Happy so far.
very good grip very light and long lasting buy it now!
Best clincher road tyres IMHO. Good price from Merlin
I think Michelin tyres are best,
Good grippy tyres, doing the job well so far......
Lightweight tyre, slightly stickier than the Pro3, longevity still to be seen but seems good to date with several rides over varied road qualities. Needs to be inflated to 120psi at all times to get the best results in both rolling, grip and durability.
Always come back to Michelin. Had Schwalbe Ultremos, Vittorria Open Corsa and Continental and never as happy as I am with Michelins be them Pro 3 previously or even Axials i think it was before that ! First pair pf Pro 4s and all good so far. I have realistic expections about life expectancy of these tyres based on previous incarnations which will be similar to the other brands I've used but I'll be much happier with the performance during that time. Unless they wear very quickly I'll be using these for quite a while.
As for Merlin...... cheapest prices and fastes delivery (next day and free) and they don't offer things in awful colour options at dead cheap prices as a lead in to get you to look at items and then show you the real price for the items in a decent colour....... unlike some other well known bike websites !
Ok ? Can I go for a ride now ?
Another good quality product Michellin Pro 4 race (service coarse) folding tyres perfect for the weekend warriors and sportive riders plenty of grip and quick with the added bonus of longevity.Fitting these tyres are like most folding there a little tight to get on the last part of the rim ,but with a little bit patience you can roll them over the rim with your thumbs don't be tempted to use tyre levers or your be asking to get pinch punctures!
Fantastic service, ordered online on a Friday and arrived half way round the country on Saturday morning. Good grip and robust for a supple tyre.
Great Tires - truly - highly recommended.
This price is wonderful in the tire of the newest highest.
The grip was also good, and in order to also absorb vibration of a fine gap,the fatigue by a long ride decreased.
