Anybody using these yet on the winter bike ? - Been using Michelin Krylions 700x25 for the past few years, these are supposed to be their replacements. Good/Bad points welcomed.


  • There are, IMO, no bad points. Other than being hard to get on, which is very Krylion like.

    I've gone to Durano Plus for commuting but would happily put these back on after full winter.

    Had some on for a while now. Done a couple of 100 mile sportives and alot of training miles, hopefully not jinxing them but they,ve been great. No punctures or any problems and they,ve been ridden in all conditions. Seem fine on the comfort front as well as grip. They,re obviously not the quickest tyres out there but when its cold wet and you want to just ride and stand a good chance of getting home with no dramas they,ll do me. Mine are 23s. Hope that helps.

    If they are as tight as Krylions then I'm going to have to give them a miss - with Campag rims they are just too much faff - otherwise great tyres though.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.
  • I've been using them for several months. No problems at all. No problems getting them on the rim, either (they're easier then the Krylions, although I didn't find them particularly awkward). Seem a little more supple than the old version, and perhaps roll a little better.

    I'm using 25s, BTW, at about 80psi for that "magic carpet" ride.
  • On the puncture front I took them on a 150 mile bike ride early in June through some terrible conditions.

    Part of it was the National Cycle Path through Pembrey Country Park. There was no cycle path, more of an MTB track. This was on a Genesis Croix with 23c Michelins. They sailed through.
