Michelin Tire

Add Michelin to the growing number of companies offering gravel road riding specific product. The giant tire maker has rolled out a beefier 28c version of its popular PRO4 Endurance tire to go along with 23c and 25c options. The new tire utilizes three 110tpi casing layers, and has what Michelin calls an HD Protection anti-puncture layer that runs the tire’s entire width. Handling is enhanced via a dual-compound tread with softer shoulders for better cornering and a harder center for increased durability. MSRP has yet to be determined but expect it to fall in the $50-$60 range. Availability is set for the beginning of 2015.

    I have a crazy idea…. when the product is a new wider tire, how about a picture showing the actual width of the tire instead of a lot of pictures of its sidewall?
