15% more grip in the wet compared with the MICHELIN PRO 4 Service Course
Better drive when pedalling in the wet, better grip when leaning and better progressivity when leaning the bike in the wet:
A novel rubber compound, effective on all types of roads and at all temperatures
New specific tread design on the shoulders which optimises grip when leaning over
New type of tyre profile giving a better contact patch on the ground when leaning so as to prevent loss of grip
A very high level of anti-puncture protection:+ 20% compared with the MICHELIN PRO 4 Service Course :
The Aramide reinforcing ply developed specifically for this tyre is resistant to cuts on the crown and shoulders
This protective ply now covers the whole rolling surface of the tyre, both centre and shoulders
MICHELIN anti-puncture protection layer is made from ARAMID
The MICHELIN tyre profits from a new generation of anti-puncture protection made out of ARAMID fibres

Rated 4 out of 5 by nakedterry Fast, slick and sticky
Having very regrettably changed from Continentals to Schwalbe Luganos, which I could not trust and just felt plain weird, I found that they were cheap for a reason. They would be completely useless in an emegency.
So after only 2 days on them and a bit of a sideways wobble, i went and picked up this total bargain. Two tyres and tubes for half the RRP!
Still a bit sceptical, I fitted and then off to work in the wet today. First I noticed they were faster.
Then I had to make an emer stop when a guy walked in front of me in very wet conditions, and I came to a complete stop within 2 meters from about 18mph and no skidding.
If I hadnt bought these last night, I'd definately have hurt him or myself.
