Strengths:    Looks Nice

Weaknesses:    Durability
Ride Quality
Cornering Ability
Dry Rot Very Quickly


Bottom Line:   
Sidewall splits, very abruptly, for apparently no reason. A road tire that can't handle 110 psi without shredding, WHAT? I bought a 2 sets of these and 3 out of the 4 tires have had major catastrophic failures within the first few hundred miles. I feel confident the fourth would if I kept riding it. Very dangerous tires. They may be puncture resistant, but none have lasted long enough to find out. Overall I am very disappointed.

Strengths:    These tires are great for a straight smooth long bike path. They are hard as a rock. A little tough to put on the rim, spray a lube around the rim and tire makes it a lot easier. I like the stiffness and the non wear on them.

Weaknesses:    I did purchase one and after mounting the tire, it formed a bubble. Took the tire off and noticed the carbon fiber in one place had separated. I have purchased more of these tires since that happened and have never had that problem again.

Bottom Line:   
Best tire for the bucks that I have found.

Strengths:    Price is right. Smooth which is great for indoor trainers. Durable.

Weaknesses:    Difficult to mount onto rim

Bottom Line:   
Great, strong, bald tire. The only problem is getting them on and off rims. They are "incredibly" tight-fitting. There is no way you will get these on your hands or even basic blastic tire-irons. You will need heavy-duty plastic ones. Be prepared to struggle, seriously.

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2011

Strengths:    DURABILITY AND FLAT RESISTENT.

Weaknesses:    NOT A SUPPLE RIDE. NOT A TIRE FOR A RAINY DAY.

Bottom Line:   
This tire wears like iron. After 2000KM plus the tire shows hardly any signs of wear. The downside is you feel every little stone and pavement ripple between the road and rubber.
THIS TIRE DOES NOT PERFORM WELL ON WET ROADS. THE TIRE DOES NOT GRIP A RAIN SOAKED PAVEMENT WELL AND DOES NOT INSPIRE CONFIDENCE IN SHARP TURNS.

New Michelin Krylion Carbon tires

I just purchased some 700X25C Krylion tires with grey strips and could not find where they were manufactured. My understanding is Michelin moved manufacturing from France to I think Taiwan. Is there a way to verified this ? ThanksRead More »
