Long-term relationship.

New not only in name but in function, Michelin's Power Endurance Clincher Tire line replaces its Pro4 tire line for 2016 and boldly promises quantifiable improvements in rolling resistance, puncture protection, grip, and overall longevity. The line comprises four tires, including the Competition, Endurance, All-Season, and Protection Plus, with each offering a slightly different blend of features suited to different riding situations. As its name suggests, the Endurance Clincher Tire addresses longevity and puncture protection the most, relying on Michelin's brand new X-Miles rubber compound to stand up to less-than-ideal road conditions so that you don't have to wince and prepare for the worst every time you ride along a shoulder shimmering with unavoidable shards of glass.

According to Michelin, the difference measures a 20% improvement, which is further complemented by an all-new tread design for this year known as Grip Design. Though the goal with the Endurance was improved durability, Michelin didn't want it to come at the expense of grip and speed, so the new tread profile aims to provide confidence-inspiring grip around the corners and along winding descents. The Endurance manages to strike a valuable balance for cyclists who spend their time riding in variable road conditions but for whom speed is still an important factor, offering a faster ride than the Protection Plus and All-Season Tires, but a longer-lasting, more dependable one than the Competition.

Disappointed with my new tires

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a set of the new Power Endurance model with high hopes. On the plus side, they are indeed a fast rolling tire. They also stick to wet roads just like the Conti GP 4000 SII. Unfortunately, that is where the similarities end. On my 2nd road, I got a flat from a tiny metal splinter. 2 rides later, a piece of glass caused another flat. These tires are so sticky they just pick up and hold onto every little tiny piece of glass on the road. I guess I'll be going back to Continental for my next set of tires, as I'm really tired of patching tubes and buying C02 cartridges.

Michelin power review at 400 miles

    Takes about 200 to break tires in, ride is fantastic and is well above the comparable spine breaker endurance tires called gator skin. Speed far exceeds expectations. With such low rolling resistance my ride buddies are complaining about my

    Michelin power review at 400 miles

    No Flats! [So far, anyway]

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have put about 300 miles on my first set of these tires. The ride quality is very good and they are wearing well. [No signs of wear yet.] I also like the look of the red sidewalls against my Carbone 40's. What really thrills me about these tires, is their resistance to punctures. The Mavic tires that came with my wheels, ride and handle quite well. But, I was getting rear tire flats on a regular basis. 4 times in 400 miles! Some of the punctures doing a fair amount of damage to the tire. With the Michelin tires, not even a mark or cut to be found after 300+ miles. I have ridden Michelin tires for many years, and will continue to do so. These latest version, Power endurance, seem to be the best all around tire yet from Michelin.
    Update: Over 1,200 miles now, and still no flats. I rotated the tires front to rear and wear is minimal.
