I purchased the Power Pure to replace some Michelin Power tires. The first thing I did notice was an improvement in tracking through corners. The upgraded rubber in the Pure model seems to be smoother and provide better feedback than the older Power models. Michelin claims that the Pure is also lighter in weight, and it does seem so, though the difference is very slight (I run magnesium wheels). Wet weather performance is also superior to the old Powers, which is of vital importance here in the Pacific Northwest. They handle rain quite well by remaining stuck to the line you choose and stop quickly even on bad road surfaces (another PNW issue). The one issue with these tires is lifespan - it is short. After less than 2,000 miles of mostly commuting, the rear was already starting to 'peel' across the center area of the tread. It does not hamper performance, but it eventually will, so now it is time to try a new set!

I've tried a few other brands of tires for my bike but I all ways come back to this one
This tire was on the bike when I got it and it was half wore I loved the fill of the tire so I got a new one to replace it. After a couple of hard trips up and down a curvey mtn road I am in love the only tire I would run on a bike thanks Motorsport.com for the quick reliable shipping to GREAT PRODUCT !!
Awesome tire. Just went through my first and about to order another set. Highly recommended for anyone.
I was a pirelli guy but after talking to guys in my group and the price difference I decided to give Michelin a try on my liter bike and im glad i did. These tires are great for my aggressive riding style as well as the daily commute of 150mi. round trip to work and they wear better and to me grip better than my old stock corsa 3's will recommend these to any sport bike rider in any class.
