Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire
The Michelin Krylion Carbon road tire is an extremely durable clincher, yet retains a superb ride quality. The key to its durability is its thicker center tread. It's reinforced with carbon, which gives you 30% more tread life, so it's not unusual to get thousands of miles on these great all-around tires. Ideal for racing or long-distance training, these tires also deliver a superb grip in wet or dry conditions and are highly resistant to cuts and punctures. They feel sublime, as well, out on the road due to the 127 TPI casing which creates an extra supple ride.

    Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

    these are the 2ed set of michelin krylion carbon tires I've owned and that's because the first set has lasted around three years.With a track record like that why buy any thing else.The only down side is Michelin uses a hard rubber compound to make the tires and they ride a little rougher than a tire made with a softer compound.But a small detail when you consider all the good things about this tire.

    Decent tire for the money

    Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

    I've had several of these and have generally been satisfied with them despite the fact that they seem to show signs of wear relatively quickly (especially compared with some comparably priced Contis). The most recent one I ordered, however, blew out after only 12 miles (bead tore away from rest of tire). Nasbar sent me a replacement and so far, so good. All in all, a decent tire for my purposes - and for the price.

        If you have an aero style rim you will find it impossible not to pry on to finish mounting. Finally, after letting the last of the tire sit stretched, then hair dryer, and then tire tools to finish mounting. I was lucky with both tires!

          Have been using it as the front tire on my road bike. I average about 6000 miles a year. The Michelin has good rolling resistance, good wear and good puncture protection.

                Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

                I only have 500-600 miles on a set so far but I am impressed with the durability. Not as fast as the Michelin lithion 2 but much longer tread life I would have to say as they are not showing any wear yet and my last lithion set was half dead by this point. Took unexpected off road journey after missing a turn at high speed rode over grass rocks/dirt and the tires took it like it was nothing. No flats at all so far.

                In addition to the functionality, black-red color combinations are very sharp. I recommend it without hesitation.

                  I buy them in bulk whenever there is a sale.
                  I have used them for years.
                  The walls are stronger than most brands.
