About this deal

That recommendation is based on the narrowness of the tread relative to the casing, and the possibility that you might be off the tread if you're leaned way over in a hard corner. Seems more of a crit-racing or kamikaze road bike descending issue than a triathlon leg issue.

Der Michelin hat subjektiv ähnlichen, extrem niedrigen Rollwiderstand wie der Conti, was für Michelin ein enormer Fortschritt ist. Der Reifen ist sehr schnell. The Road Bike section is a multi tire size section, air pressures have been adjusted to the measured casing width. I’ve always been a fan of this michelin tire line for 15 years -> krylion carbon to endurance to endurance v2. These power cup seem to have a lot of the puncture resistance of those tires but now in a better rolling resistance/performance format. If they have roughly the same puncture resistance I’d be willing to give them a shot. Here is part of the Merced Crit course which was just run last week. Advance through a few paces to see the road surface get worse and worse. The Power Cup TLR tyre is said to be inspired by MotoGP motorbike tyre technology, featuring a derivative of Michelin’s Gum X compound.This was an area that some teammates were nervous about, especially considering the amount of faith you put in a thin strip of rubber when cornering at speed! Michelin claim that these tyres have ‘ efficient handling and stability in both wet and dry conditions thanks to the MICHELIN Gum-X compound‘. This is a technology Michelin use to alter the characteristics of the rubber to best suit the requirements of the tyre. Auf exakt gleichen Felgen habe ich noch den Conti 5000 TL in 28mm in Betrieb, kann also gut vergleichen. Finance is subject to application, financial circumstances and borrowing history.

When looking at the available sizes, Michelin seems quite conservative as the tube-type version of the Power Cup is available only in the 23-622, 25-622, and 28-622 sizes. With many road bikers moving up to 28, 30, and 32 mm tires, we would have loved to see some bigger versions as well. Meanwhile Competition Line has the Power Cup and Power Cup TLR tyres – TLR for tubeless ready. Michelin have created new tread compounds to improve speed, rolling efficiency and cornering grip. These compounds have come from Michelin’s experience in the world of MotoGP. Michelin Power Cup Tubular Michelin Power Cup Tubular For the record, I ran these 5psi lower than my usual 85psi, and they actually measured 30.4mm on my 19.5mm ID rims. I was happy with the slight extra compliance at 80psi, and they didn't feel any slower rolling either. ValueJust like the 25 mm version of the Power Cup TLR, we don't recommend the 28 mm version for wide rims. If you're still running 15 or 17 mm rims, these will probably be fine and offer incredible performance.

I don't know where you race crust but here in the northeast your puncture probability with corsa speed is probably >50% per race. I love them, but only for TTs The usage, the terrain you ride on, and the weather conditions are also parameters taken into account for the ideal pressure. Remember, if required, we advise you to consult the MICHELIN bicycle tyre pressure chart to convert these figures to PSI. Michelin has launched its new MICHELIN POWER CUP range of premium road bicycle tyres. Designed for road cyclists looking for the ultimate performance, this new range offers something for everyone – from riders racing in the Grand Tours, to enthusiastic amateurs who just want the optimum performance during their rides. The main idea is that there is simply a balance to strike when pumping up bicycle tyres. And to help you with this, MICHELIN provides a range of recommended tyre pressures for all tyre models. If you're still on 15 or 17 mm rims, we definitely recommend the Power Cup TLR over the Grand Prix 5000 S TR.

Although they come in very close, the 28 mm version of the Michelin Power Cup TLR edges out the 25 mm version ( read our review) in most of our tests, making it an even stronger performer when compared to competing tires. We see a slightly lower rolling resistance, slightly better puncture resistance of both the tread and sidewall, and slightly better wet grip in both the center and edge tests. Rolling efficiency: Speed and comfort thanks to tubeless-ready technology. Speed and efficiency inspired by MotoGPTM technology
