Michelin Jet Cyclocross Tire - 700c $0.00
Rolling resistance is a big deal. Until wind resistance takes over at about 20 kph, rolling resistance is the number one force trying to slow you down. Obviously, a semi-slick tire like the Michelin Jet Cyclocross Tire will have less rolling resistance than a knobby one. This gives the Jet a distinct speed advantage on hard, dry surfaces.
Michelin didn't forget that you have to turn from time to time, either. The Jet has aggressive side lugs that allow you to corner with precision or climb out of ruts nimbly. The tough Silica Energy tread compound further reduces rolling resistance and increases durability, and the proven chevron tread pattern provides grip for braking and acceleration. Michelin also opted for a flexible 60 tpi casing for vibration absorption, predictable handling, and light weight.
The Michelin Jet Cyclocross Tire is available in 700c x 30mm only. Tread and sidewalls are Black.
What community has to say
Very cool tire for dirt and grass...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When these are setup so that just the center chevron shaped tread is in contact with the ground this thing rocks pretty hard. I was quite impressed how well it handled. It felt like a slick (smooth and fast) in dirt until I turned or found a patch of grass....then it suddenly bit down like a knobby.
My only complaint is on the pavement it let me down a little.
Haven't put enough miles on them to speak to their durability, but I haven't torn any of the little bits of rubber off yet.
