So far I've only taken a 100-mile scrub-in ride but I'm very impressed. I've ridden on Pilot Powers & 2CTs for years, then tried another brand but they barely lasted 1,000 miles. I wanted to try these Power 5s and I'm definitely glad I did! The first thing I noticed is the neutral profile that neither "falls in" (like Pilot Powers) or makes you work to turn. These tires simply do what you want without you thinking about it. I was very cautious & gradual while initially scrubbing in these tires but they never gave me any warnings or slips during that process. Once I started leaning and pushing they gave great confidence, feedback and no second-thoughts. I checked them after ~40 miles and although I had scrubbed them to the edge I wasn't totally sure because they showed almost no wear at all. I went ahead with the rest of the day's ride at a fast pace and even when I ended my ride and inspected my tires there was virtually no sign of wear. I am very impressed so far! I've tried other tire brands that gave similar performance and feel but showed noticeable wear under the same conditions. I may have found my new ideal tire for non-race use! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these Michelin Power 5 tires!
