Your rubber is the only thing touching the ground—so it better be good.
The Michelin Lithion2 Road Tire is your go-to tire for hammering-out long training rides across the landscape. Chevron tread pattern combines with soft shoulder rubber to provide reliable grip when leaned over in a corner, and the overlapped 60-TPI casing features a puncture-resistant crown to effectively avoid annoying flats.
- 10% lighter than Lithion road tire
- Two-tone silica-based tread down the center of the tire offers durability
- Recommended PSI: 87-116

I've used Michelin tires for years when I used to do triathlons in the early 80's thru the mid 90's. I've done more than 50 triathlons and 100+ bike rides on my Michelin Pro during those years.
I've just bought back my old racing bike, and going to replace my tirew with these. About a month ago I bought two of these for my wife's bike, and I'm so impressed with smooth ride, great traction and apparent quality of these tires, that I am buy two more now for my bike.
Be sure that you clean the protective coating off of these before riding...especially on wet roads. A good friend and seasoned rider had his bike flip out from under him, and now he has this "cool" macho scar from side to the other side under his chin!!! Ouch!!
I cleaned them with alcohol and then burned rubber to make sure I burned off the chemical that can make them slick.
great grip but poor puncture resistance
