Good value for money

Good quality with good road grip and fast.

Awesome!

Heard alot of good reviews about these tyres so snapped them up for a bargain price from Probikekit. Couldn't believe how well they rolled or how light they were. Never used Michelin before but I might just be a convert now. Not sure as to durability yet, but for the price you can't go wrong! Service from PBK was first class again.

Great Tires

I loved the Pro Race 3's due to their nice ride, great handling and traction. The PRO 4.s are just as good and maybe better, These are not meant to be the most durable tire in the world. They are meant to be fast, ride well, and have good durability relative to other "race" tires. They do a great job. I am a 200 pound occasional racer and I have less flats than most any tire I've used. And these things have a great ride and really grip when doing fast corners.

Much Improved Over Pro 3

This tire is a much improved version of the Pro3. The durability is great, the tracking line is improved, and the grip performance on the corners is incredible.In addition, the stability of the tires at high descending speeds is the best I've ever experienced. The tire is a 'rock' at 90km/hr and transmits a surety that makes you want to even go faster - few tires fall into this category. As with all tires, (including the Michelin line) the rear tire does square off a bit at >1000km - this resulting from 60%+ of your total body wt. being supported by the rear. But even in mentioning this, the tire has a deep bead and will give you upwards of 3000 km of 'hard' riding life.

Really good so far.

I've only been riding these for a couple of month, but I'm very pleased with the performance so far. Even in this short time, it's easy to see the difference in durability, relative to the earlier Pro3; no comparison. But, in addition to the improved wear, these tires have really good grip -even in the wet - and good comfort, as well. Very nice balance of properties.

Nice tire

Bought these to replace a pair of GP4000S tires that were still in almost perfect condition after 2500+ miles. Just got tired of the Conti's hard ride. Immediately the Pro4s were noticeably more supple. Can't say they're faster but they are much more pleasant to ride. Only about 500 miles so far so nothing to say about longevity, but there's not a nick on them.

While these are good tires I wouldn't say they're brilliant. They do not have the suppleness, road feel and (illusion?) of speed that a high tpi tire like a Vitt Open Corsa or Veloflex Corsa has. In fact I still slightly prefer the Bontrager Race X Lite tire to the Pro4 in regard to those characteristics but it's no longer available; part of the reason I bought these was in trying to find a replacement for the RXLs. I'll have to keep looking.

Much improved

Just changed from ProRace 3 to 4 and found the ride greatly improved - especially on the cornering. A great upgrade.

Great tire and the best price in the world.

Have used the Prorace 3 and then turned to the Prorace4 this past spring. Great tire in which you could tell the difference between the 3 and 4. Just finished using the Prorace4 without one puncture in 6500 Km.....had to change it finally....and replaced it with another 4 tyre.

Outstanding and you can't find it any cheaper than PBK.

The fastest tyre yet!

I've used the Pro, Pro2 and the Pro3 and liked them all so trying this one out was a no-brainer.

As with all Michelin tyres this is not just fast but noticeably faster than the previous models. The thing that really struck me was the cornering capabilities, similar to that of a Continental (stickier but normally slower), acceleration and holding speed was amazing!

I've not had these long but i believe the only mark-down is like all Michelin tyres they wear down faster than other brands, although they do have an endurance version for those who rack up the miles...

DISAPPOINTED

The tire color shown is NOT the color that arrived. it's called pink and on the website it's a very pretty light pink but when I opened the package they looked more red than pink. I can't put these on my bike!!!!!!!!!! I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Grippy easy to install and durable

First impressions with this new tire are good. They grip well roll quickly and are durable.

The many colors are easy to match with your ride, and they are a dream to install (very easy no levers required)

However they are no longer made in france...

Great tire and good price.

I have been using these tyres for the past 4000 Km this year and they are much better than the Prorace 3. A bit of squaring off on the back tyre but this may be due to my 185 lbs.

wearing well and very smooth

I felt like spoiling myself with some new tires on a multi-buy discount. couldn't be happier with the improvement in the ride quality over my old tires. much more grip and confidence cornering - which took me a while since by old set slipped out on me before. too early to tell on wear, but after 700 miles looking fine

Great Improvement

The new Pro4 is really better than the Pro3. The tyre has a longer life and feels better than before! I recommend it strongly to everyone!

My new Favorite tire

So far like them the best of all the tires I have tried. Ride better then the Conti 4000s, seem to roll better as well. Ride feels a lot like the Vitoria Open Course but seems to be much tougher. More durable then the PR3 and not big and fat like the PR2. Been using them on chopped up roads (which is about everywhere these days) and so far no cuts and the ride quality is great even over these roads.

The profile moves more toward a point then the round shape of the PR3s. So I am riding them at higher pressure. It seems to work fine but I worry that it will flat spot earlier then other tires.

I like these tires and hope that I will continue to have similar results as I rack up the miles.

A Fine Tire

I've put right around 500km on my first pair of Pro 4's. So far they seem very similar to the Pro 3's. The rounded profile is very noticeable and goes away as the tire flattens out. With 500 km on the tire is still retains the profile. I haven't ridden the tires long enough to make a judgment about the improved resistance against cuts.

For people who have not used Pro 3's. The tires are a reasonably supple ride, quick rolling, and fairly lightweight. They may not be the best tire in any one aspect, but the is no better all-around tire in my opinion.

Pfft to puncture protection

In one week I managed to get a flat in both front and rear. The second week, I flatted out again but this time I got a cut through the rear. In 2 weeks, GARBAGE!

Great tires for Pro 3 users

Same feel as the Pro 3's but they feel like the corner a bit better.

Update: Super after many hundreds of miles so far

I will update these to 5 stars as I have enough miles on now to assess better. I'll give 5 stars because they really are holding up exceptionally well to the same roads that would have already ripped up the Pro3 Race. The squaring off of the rear is actually pretty minimal (but a little bit is happening). The durability is superb for the performance.

None of cuts and chips like Pro3 but does square off quick

I've always loved the Pro3s as the nicest tire for me by ride quality and feel, except for them getting cuts and bits out of them incredibly easy! My Pro3s always got all cut up to oblivion long before they squared off or got worn out.

So...

The Pro4s with only about 600 miles or so (on the identical good quality roads which chopped up the Pro3s so quick) are in absolutely superb shape with no cuts whatsoever so far. The same roads, while nice roads, would have cut up the Pro3s already. However, the rear (not the front) Pro4 is squared off quite a bit - and certainly more than the Pro3s would be for the same miles.

They feel about the same as the Pro3s, but I honestly have not been on Pro3s for some time having switched to Krylions because of the cutting problem. The Pro4s, as expected, feel faster and cleaner than the Krylions.

Based on the lack of cuts, I recommend these over the Pro3s.

I have not tried the Enduro, which might solve the squaring off problem. Not yet a problem - I'll see how many miles I get before it is a problem. Now it is an observation...

Step Up From Pro 3 but Perhaps Wears Faster Than it Should

Height: 6'3
Weight: 195lb
Bikes: '88 De Rosa Professional SLX, '83 De Rosa Professional, '83 Ciocc Designer 84, '80 & '83 Grandis Special, '73 Pogliaghi Italcorse, '83 Colnago Super Saronni, '74 Raleigh Professional, 72 Raleigh Professional Track

Really looking forward to trying these beasts and this is one of the earliest sources for the new Michelin Pro 4 Service Course. While they will have multiple versions of this tire, with an even lighter 180g race version down the pike, this is probably the closest to the stock Michelin Pro 3 in weight and thus a good candidate for comparison. The new Pro 4 is billed as a big step up in durability and resistance to flats and cutting, all the while bringing less rolling resistance and better cornering grip. Seems like the veritable magic bullet and perhaps too good to be true. To be honest, I preferred the wear and durability of the Pro 2 over the Pro 3 and would seek out Pro 2 whenever I could. My other favorite clincher is the Veloflex Pave/Master 22, this with an even better ride than ANY of the Michelin Pro series with far better cornering power to boot. Rolling resistance with light tubes is comparable.

At first glance, you notice that the Pro 4 is the FIRST Michelin Pro series that is available in ALL BLACK, a big plus for many unhappy with Michelin's "Gray is the new black" aesthetic. Second, you notice the slightly different shape that is mentioned to mirror their motorcycle tires. The contact area feels slightly thicker than both the Pro 2 and Pro 3, and you see the shoulder. I wondered if the ride would suffer from the slightly thicker contact area.

I've now used several of the new Michelin Pro 4 Service Course, putting in @ 1000 miles of hard riding. I'm here to say the ride seems quite nice, easily equal or better than the Pro 2 and Pro 3. It seems to roll very nicely, also equal or perhaps slightly better than the Pro 3. My first take on the flats, rolling at good speed is it handles corners BETTER than both the 2 and 3 Pro series. There is less chatter at maximum inflation and it's smoother with a slightly more perceived grip. On the other hand, the Michelin Pro 4 still does not equal the cornering feel and power of the Veloflex Pave/Master 22, which really gives you great grip at full speed in and out of the turn. So far, no other clincher tire touches them in the corners but the Pro 4 is much closer than the previous Pro versions.

Great news to those that sometimes suffered with the Pro 3 is it appears to be at least as durable as the Pro 2 with less cuts as well. I've not flatted with this tire yet but I tend to not have many flats anyway. Still, this tire appears to resist some of the Pro 3 downfalls in this regard.

So are there any complaints? It's a nice looking tire. It's finally available in all black. It appears to out-handle the Pro 3 in corners. And it seems to better resist cuts, a liability with the Pro 3. BUT.... I have to say this tire is squaring off in the rear faster than any of the Pro series and perhaps faster than the uber light Veloflex Master 22, a claimed 180g tire. My rear started to get some squaring before it even hit 800 miles. Granted, I am not light at 195lbs and ride very hard but am smooth and don't toss my bike around like a gibbon on Ibogaine. The new Pro 4 does come to more of a point in the contact area and you WILL see this point start to round and square off faster than you might assume. So far, it's the only negative I have about this tire. Makes me wonder what the lighter version will be like.

I might weigh in later but so far, I'll give it a definite thumbs up besides the one point of premature square-off, even giving this is a high performance tire. It's my only concern given the cost of quality rubber these days. As you know, tires have definitely gone up and the days of great deals seem gone. Still, the twinpack Michelin Pro 4 Service Course is a nice deal for the money and a step up from the Pro 3.
