Power Endurance Tire

Michelin's Power Endurance Clincher Tire line replaces its Pro4 tire line 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 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 on puncture resistance, which is further complemented by the Grip Design tread pattern. 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.

  • Durable road tire that balances longevity and speed
  • X-Miles compound resists wear for more riding
  • Aramid Protek casing resists punctures to keep you rolling
  • Grip Design tread increases traction through corners

I've put it through the wringer

These tires are fast; however, as others have contested, they are prone to flats too easily. I had 3 flats in a single ride in the rain. The slightest of road debris is easily picked up in the casing. I ride in all conditions and about 20,000 miles a year. I was hoping that these tires would be an endurance tire, but alas I will go back to the Specialized tires.

look good

I like the color options and seem not to have any issues with these tires as of yet.

I have had no complaints

I've used it several times

I have not put as many miles as other people have. Maybe about 100. They are durable and much faster than my other tires. They were a little bit of a struggle to get the on the actual bike. Once I started riding them I felt as though my rides were smoother and faster.

oh the flats you will have

I've put it through the wringer

So in five months i have gone thru more than 20 flats on michelin power competition tires. Some with less than a mile on. Horrible puncher resistance. Avoid buying these unless you like to change flats on the road constantly. Some sidewall blow outs, and some stones.

Have become a huge disappointment!

I've put it through the wringer

After using the Michelin Endurance Pro for over ten years, I continued with a purchase of the new Power Endurance. The new model seems IMO more flat and cut prone. I ordered two new tires in October 2017. Since then, I have experienced 5 flats and two cut front tires, including this weekend (picture), that had to be replaced. With the former Endurance model, I averaged 3,000 miles before replacement, 2-3 flats per season, and no cuts/tears that required replacement. IMO the newer model is less reliable than for former model, so this long-time Michelin customer is searching for new brand.


What is the rated psi range on these tires?

Disappointed with my new tires

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.

Blowout on third ride, right at bead on rear, 5 miles from car. I want confidence in my tires. Going to Conti 4 Season which is fast and durable. Michelin has a quality control issue.

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

No Flats! [So far, anyway]

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.
