Good grippy and light tyre. Ride comfort is better as I don't feel the bumps as hard than the old tyres and I dropped 40gm from my old Specialized Mondo's which were about 243gm. The compound is slightly softer so they do pick up some light gravel and stones,rolling resistance is quite low too. Really happy with these except for the colour I chose(Yellow) which was my fault. Just stick to the simple coluors or match them with your bike.Report this review
If you looking for a grippy tyre, then this is the tyre for you. However I was a little disappointed in the wear factor of the tyre - they wear quicker than other branded tyres that I have used. They are quite a soft tyre, so the heavier you are the more quicker its going to wear out.Report this review
So I've previously been a big fan of Vittoria tyres with their high pressure capabilities (I'm a bit of a fatty). But a mate recommended these because they roll very well.
No lie, these roll very fast, even if they look really flat when I crush them down. In addition they have a very soft cushiony feel to absorb most of the bumps in the road.
This Pro race 3 tyre is not for Australian conditions. Simle as that. Cuts way to easy. Look elsewhere.Report this review
This is my second pair or the 3 series on my RS80 rims. No puncture at all for about 3000kms. Great grip.. the rear needs to be changed obviously earlier as it wears quicker.. at the front it last forever.. Yes I see a number of cuts here and there but it doesn't bother me. I have red ones which remains red and looks good without cleaning.Report this review
I used to ride on Michelin Lithiums. The Michelin Prorace 3 have excellent grip even in wet roads. They roll better than any tyre I have used. However, I have a very big gripe for these tyre. After just a few rides, the tyre get cuts. On average, I get a flat every 300km. On the Lithium, I could go for 3000km without flats. The Lithiums have very poor grip though.
I might try the Continental GP4000. A lot of my friends have switched over to Continental
Pro 3 Race $35. Conti 4000S $51. You get what you pay for.
The old Pro 2 Race tyres were excellent. The new Pro 3's are fast, but puncture way too often. They cut cut cut. Not worth the headache, even whilst training. Very disappointing.
Packaging says Made in France. Tyre says otherwise.
I found these tyres amazing. I noticed the difference pretty much straight away. You cruise along a lot easier than my old ones and also I hardly get any punctures. The only time I get punctures is when the tyre has little nicks in it. But for it to get to that stage takes a lot. I ride everyday to work and have been for about over a year now, which is a 20km round trip and I have only changed my tyres once. The Michelin Pro 3 tyres are fantastic.
I was expecting great things from the Michelin Pro 3 Race tyres, but found them extremely difficult to take on and off my rims...which I found myself doing often because of their seemingly poor puncture resistance. They also showed excessive wear after 1000kms too.Report this review
I agree with many others - they are not as durable as the Pro 2s. I dont have a big problem with punctures (mainly because I use Mr Tuffy protection strips under the tyres - which are good) but they get lots of nicks and wear reasonably quickly. I got 8 - 10000 km from pro 2s but only 5000 tops from Pro3s.Report this review
