Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire
The Michelin Krylion Carbon road tire is an extremely durable clincher, yet retains a superb ride quality. The key to its durability is its thicker center tread. It's reinforced with carbon, which gives you 30% more tread life, so it's not unusual to get thousands of miles on these great all-around tires. Ideal for racing or long-distance training, these tires also deliver a superb grip in wet or dry conditions and are highly resistant to cuts and punctures. They feel sublime, as well, out on the road due to the 127 TPI casing which creates an extra supple ride.

    Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

    The Krylion model was discontinued for a while and I'm happy to see them come back. I'm riding on brand X that replaced my old Krylions that finally wore out after over 3000 miles. I'll be lucky to get 1500 miles out of these brand X, then it's back to my Krylions. I ride mostly on the side of some major roads which are covered with rocks, trash and broken glass. Many of the back road I ride on are tar and chip which is about the same as riding on broken glass, until it's been down for a month or so. The Krylion's have outlasted all other tires I've tried. They go on easily without tools (this depends on your rims so yours may or may not)and ride like a dream, both for comfort and control. They don't flat as often as most other tires which is a big plus for me....Welcome back Krylions!!

    Pros

    • Good Ride Feel

    • Very Tight To Mount

    Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

    They are a bit tight to mount but are decent weight and have pretty good road feel for a general training tire. Only have a few hundred miles on them so far so I don't know about wear and puncture resistance. So far, with the special price on Nashbar along with the extra percentage on top of that, it was a super deal. I bought a bundle of them at that price.

      These great looking tires held up well for my half-ironman race. They are pretty snazzy lo0king with my red and white CERVELO P-1.

          Been using krylions for several years. I usually get around 1200 miles from rear tires and 1800 from front. Yes I know I should rotate them but that's probably not going to happen.

          Very Disappointing

          Best Uses

            Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

            I placed this tire on my rear wheel. I read the instructions for proper inflation. After 1100 miles, the tread wore down to the casing. And due to the higher pressure recommended by the manufacturer, my rim cracked around 5-6 spoke holes. These holes had reinforcing eyelets too. I used a comparable tire by a different manufacturer on the same rear wheel, and got 3000 miles of use and no rim damage.

            If you are going to buy this tire, don't inflate above 100 PSI.

            Riding partner had a set of these that went well over 4K. No flats and retained profile, did not flatten out.These tires were a major upgrade from stock tires that came on my new ride.Have used Lithion's, good but not high mileage.Great deal from Nasbar.

              these are the 2ed set of michelin krylion carbon tires I've owned and that's because the first set has lasted around three years.With a track record like that why buy any thing else.The only down side is Michelin uses a hard rubber compound to make the tires and they ride a little rougher than a tire made with a softer compound.But a small detail when you consider all the good things about this tire.

              Comments about Michelin Krylion Carbon Road Tire:

              I've had several of these and have generally been satisfied with them despite the fact that they seem to show signs of wear relatively quickly (especially compared with some comparably priced Contis). The most recent one I ordered, however, blew out after only 12 miles (bead tore away from rest of tire). Nasbar sent me a replacement and so far, so good. All in all, a decent tire for my purposes - and for the price.
