The brand new Michelin Pro 4 Service Course tyre is designed to provide ultimate performance in all conditions. The tyre delivers the perfect balance between sports performance and longevity. After considerable research and development, Michelin have been able to simultaneously enhance the speed, safety and agility of the tyre while also reducing rolling resistance in comparison to their Pro 3 Race.
Michelin's own testing has revealed the Michelin Pro 4 Service Course tyre is not only safer but is also an average of 16% faster when cornering on wet road surfaces. Michelin have achieved this by introducing their new optimised dual-compound technology. This technology features wider lateral bands for optimal grip at all angles of lean and new compounds incorporating new elastomers and silica for extra grip at the shoulders.
In summary, Michelin's new Pro 4 Service Course tyres improve on their predecessors in every single way. If you're looking for the ultimate in high performance, long lasting tyres, then look no further than the Pro 4 Service Course!

Best all round tyre
Confindent for cornering
Age: Over 55
Date: 19 / Nov / 2013
One of the quick set tyres out there.Its a race tyre, but don't expect long life and something bombproof.Go elsewhere.You should get a year out of them.Better than the Pro 2/3, less susceptible to cuts and better puncture protection, and more grip cornering. Easy to put on the rim, did it with my hands, no levers needed! Shop around prices vary greatly. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pro 5 came out though, as these tyres are being heavily discounted at the moment.

This is a really smooth and perfect tire, it is a perfect descending tire and rising tire, the resistance against the road is very low and it is really good doing corners
high end performance tire.
Date: 22 / Oct / 2013
Too early to tell how these Pro 4s will do long term, and not been on the bike long enough to test them in all weather conditions, but they seem to have a bit more of all the features that people who buy Michelins like.

I have ridden the best part of 6000 miles this year on one pair of these tyres. They have given excellent grip throughout in both dry and extremely wet conditions. I have now replaced them as I was unlucky to tear one due to a freak nail puncture. I would recommend trying these as they are excellent tyres, good value and will increase your speed due to confidence in them.

These are my standard summer tyres. Use the endurance version over winter.

Bought pro4 tyres 25mm found them to be excellent very easy to fit and ride great only needs 100 psi had Vitoria corsa cx before which we're great but fragile would recommend the Michelin tyres especially in 25mm more comfortable 9/10

There black, they go on the road, they clinch and of course they are the service grade.
Great price too.
Date: 09 / Oct / 2013
Great tyre, and at this price silly not to buy. Increased stickiness due to new rubber compunds give even more condfidence in the wet. Almost tempted not to use the tubs these are so good.
Date: 03 / Oct / 2013
This is is best tyre I have ever had. Whilst riding it provides great cornering and low rolling resistans, easy to get on and of the wheel (reynolds) and the price is very good for this tyre.

Unlike Vittoria, Continental and others top brands, the Michelin Pro 4 is w/o a doubt one of one the lowest quality tires. I'm an avid cyclist who's have been riding for many years and many miles, and when I tried the Michelin tires I found them to be one of the worst in the market, given the fact that you're paying for what is supposed to be a high-end tyre. The first day I used them, one of them blew up; I had to get rid of them since I did not want to risk having a serious accident.

Excellent tyres. Quick, grippy, durable and light.
Have been riding 25 miles there and back across London once a week all Summer to race at Hillingdon and the only puncture I've actually had was at Hillingdon itself.
Rear tyre has started to square off but I do weigh 200lb....
A few nicks in the tread but they seem to be about as cut proof as the Conti 4000s that used to be my standard choice.
Have meddled with Ultremos and Vittorias over the last couple of years but these are by far the best. Will be buying again.

I've upgraded from 25 barebone tyre to this Michelin Pro 4 Race Service Course Clincher Road Tyre. My average speed went up from 27km to 33km. Great job Michelin.
Date: 02 / Aug / 2013
The Michelin Pro 4 Race Service Course Clincher Road Tyre provide good grip and rolling resistance. They are much better than the Pro3 which always seems to have little nicks in the tyre and which punctures more easily.
Date: 27 / Jul / 2013
Thanks Pro Bike kit. My order arrived and was packaged well. Your prices were unbeatable.
Date: 25 / Jul / 2013
For past 2000 km I was using Pro3 Service Course 23mm with good results. When I switched to Pro4 Service Course 25mm ride comfort and speed definitely improved. Average speed on TT course of 12km that I used to ride improved by 1kmh. Tire pressure now is 1 at the moment lower due to bigger surface area of 25 mm tire significantly contributing to ride quality on rough surfaces.
Date: 01 / Jul / 2013
Rides and corners better than any tire I have owned. Tire pressure kept as recommended by Michelin. Not update yet on puncture resistance.

I bought these tyres as they were on offer at the time, but I have since learnt that this was a costly mistake. Yes they are light, yes they look great but they just dont last very long.
Having had these tyres on my bike since the start of the road season, I have only covered approx. 1000 miles on them, but they have already started to split at the edges of the tread.
I always deflate the tyres after use and I am annoyed that they are an expensive tyre to last only three months. I also had some Lithion 2's at the same time for my training wheels and these have gone the same way and I have punctured several times on a scale that I have never suffered with other tyres.
Needless to say I will be reverting back to Conti's for the remainder of the season and not touching Michellin tyres with a barge pole in future.

I'll try to be concise here:Ordered 2 tires and on the first 7 miles I got one tire cut from the center to the side wall (down to the fabric). I was upset, but again, it could be just bad luck right? Decide to buy another replacement, after 400 miles I got a blowout, there is a whole on the sidewall rendering the tire completely useless this time. Not going for the forth tire, I guess I learned the lesson. Throughout the 400 miles ridden I got 4 flats.Facts: 700x23 tire, bike+rider combined weight 230 punds, road condition : some debris, but clean for the most part; Pressure as per recommendation max (8bar = 116 PSI). Flat and straight roads, no aggressive cornering.The tires didn't feel more supple than my Vittoria's, neither faster, perhaps a little bit more sluggish, but I mind just be biased here. However the grip is par to the Vittoria's, very good on cornering! Buying now a Hardshell Gator, at size 700x25 on the rear. Let's see how it rolls!
Date: 31 / Dec / 2012
Rolls fast and quiet. Exceptional cornering - even better than the Pro3. Easier to mount on rim than the Pro3, as well. Nice, thin sidewall renders a supple ride. Unlike Conti's which one can liken to riding on a mid-90's clincher.Funny how others will slam a tire, just because they got some puntures. Try not riding over debris and then clean the inside of the tire post-flat.

Ordered the wrong size tyres and tubes, Doh!, returning and getting replacements was a doddle, 5 day turnaround from me sending to receiving the correct stuff. Faultless service, very pleased indeed and will shop at PBK again

Tyres, let's face it they can be a hit or a miss. Compare to car tyres they are pretty damned expensive too so once you think you have your best compromise I would stick to it. I have used Continental, other folk swear by them, but I hated them. Constant punctures. I didn't like the feel or the roll of Vittoria Rubinos and although I liked the the Schwalbe Ultremos I found they also cut quite easily and were prohibitively expensive. That's why I have always came back to the Michelin Pro series in their various guises as I love their puncture resistance and handling. Time will tell how well these wear as I found the Pro 3 didn't last as long as I would have liked. If the manufacturer claims are correct then they should be fine. They seem to have come down in price a lot too from when they were first made.

a great tyre and very fast. better than the pro3
Lightweight , fast , and very reasonably price. Improved cornering and wet surface grip from the Michelin Pro 3s. Trusted Michelin quality !
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.
Same feel as the Pro 3's but they feel like the corner a bit better.
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!
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.
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.
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!
These wheels roll up to pace very quickly, have excellent grip. especially when cornering hard in wet weather. Very happy about these wheels, no regrets buying them at all
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
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.
Great tyre for racing really hangs in there better than the Pro Race 3 for cornering, also does not cut like the 3.Would recommend this tyre.
Bought this item to replace my stock tires and paired it with the michelin aircomp latex and my ride is much more enjoyable. Smooth, plush, and much more responsive in my opinion.
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...
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...
Height: 6'3Weight: 195lbBikes: '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. - kh
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.
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.
