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.

      Great all around tire for the money. Good grip and rolling resistance. Can be a little tough to mount but I've seen tires that are much tougher. Will keep buying these as long as Michelin cranks them out.

          These tires are not the lightest or fastest. With that said, if you are tired of flats on a casual ride and wouldn't mind a smoother rolling this is the way to go. They're simply awesome for the days when you you just want to take it easy and enjoy the ride.

            Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

            These tires wear like steel. I get more miles out of a set of these than any other tires costing twice the price. I have two bikes and can mount them on either bike without the need of tools, which is a big plus for me. I ride in south, central PA and we have a lot of tar and chip roads and roadside trash to contend with. I find I get far fewer flats with these than with all other tires I've tried. Only wish Nasbar would offer them in 25 which are a little more comfortable than the 23 and you don't lose that much performance. The're lighter tires out there but if you are looking for a good all around training tire, these are hard to beat..

              Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

              I put 100-150/week and these tires are the only concession I make on adding any weight that I don't have to. They are relatively heavy but when you can usually ride these things for 2,500-3,000 miles without a single flat (I change them before I get a flat) it's totally worth it. Nothing is worse than Having a blow out coming down a hill or in traffic. I'm not saying you'll never get a flat but these things ride pretty well and I've never had problems with the tire. I heard they're not making it and the pro 4 is replacing it which weighs 20-30 grams less. I'm want to try it but it's hard to switch after having such good luck for thousands and thousands of miles. I'm definitely partial to these tires! The red wall goes great with my black with red accent bike

                Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

                I'm very glad Michelin brought this one back after it was discontinued. It's always been the best all-around tire for durability, speed and comfort. I'm on the 3rd set and ride some pretty rough roads. The Krylions have rolled on with no flats and a smooth, stable feel. The rear will wear out sooner than the front by a 2 to 1 ratio so I like keep an extra to replace that one. Now that Nashbar carries these again, there's no reason not to keep doing the same, especially for the price.

                  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.
