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:

    I'm a 220lb rider and appreciate the toughness of this tire. Every bump, shard, nail is forced against my tires more than average rider. These tires are NOT heavy, and they have protected tubes wonderfully. Tried Gatorskin and extra weight and width was not as good as Krylon. Full recommendation - especially if heavy rider.

      Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

      I just bought a replacement set of these kryleon tires. I've put probably at least 2,000 miles on my first pair but cooked my rear tire as it wasn't clamped as tight to my trainer as it should have been so I wanted to replace. These tires are not the lightest things around but I have literally not had a flat tire in 2,000 miles. That's never happened to me before. They are 40 grams hearier than the lightest things on the market but I've had to change a dozen tires before during a ride (with minimally lighter tires) and I'll take that trade every time. I just bought another back up set as these tires with the Nashbar sale are an absolute no-brainer. I love the color scheme and get compliments on my bike with these tires. They handle really well and I've hit bolts, glass, sharp rocks, grates etc.. And they just keep going.

      Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

      For my first ride on these tires, I pumped to 82 psi, per the weight chart that came with the tires. They decended comfortably off of Trail Ridge road, but my friends waited for me for a while. I now ride them at 100 psi, they are much faster and still comfortable.

      They are super easy to put on.

          Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

          I was a little nervous when I saw that the maximum tire pressure is 109, when it was 125 for my previous tire (the one that came with the Specialized Ruby). But, my first ride was great - I couldn't tell any difference with the tire pumped to 109, and I rode at my usual pace without difficulty.

            I only have put about 100 miles on them but I've experienced running through broken glass and never got a flat. I ride roads that you are dodging debris in the bike path. I sometimes have got to ride sidewalks because of no shoulders. I bike in N. Ft Myers in the winter. Because of the open container law, everyone throws their bottles out on the streets and sidewalks. This tire seems to hold up under these circumstances well.

              Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

              These have been my go-to training tire for the better part of the past decade. I've tried others, but keep coming back to these because they roll smoothly, resist flats, back tires last around 3000 miles, fronts just don't wear out for a season or two & I ride 5000 to 6000+ miles every year. They aren't the lightest tire or the fastest tire but they are a great all around solid performer. When on sale (which is often) they offer a great bang for the buck too. Just don't over inflate one. They max out at 8 bars or 116psi.

                  I've ridden these tires for just over 20 miles... and they are the smoothest riding, quietest tires I've ever had. Some reviewers have spoken of easy flats with these tires. That has not been my experience so far - at 115 PSI.

                  Blew out a tube on first inflation. Used a 26mm tube on 25mm tires with a digital (very accurate)pressure gauge. Only went to 100 psi (the tires indicated max is 110 psi) on the second attempt and they worked fine. So don't over-inflate these "puppies"...
