Road5 - The dangerous tyre

Chris - July 22, 2021

I've been riding on the Road 5 for a month (daily rider) and completed around 2000km in all types of weather. I was looking forward to the changes sand improvements from the PR4. The 'Squirm' that occasionally can be found in the PR4 was something I was looking for. The ride and grip in the dry, once the tyre is warm, is excellent as with the wet weather grip and stability in a straight line. The Road 5 now has a slick edge filling in any grooves that caused the 'Squirm' and Michelin has now created a dangerous tyre. The slick edge will slide in the dry if it is not warm and cools off extremely fast (it is winter for me) and can catch you out if you stop for a few minutes. In the wet it is extremely easy to reach the slick edge again causing loss of grip. You don't need to slow down in the wet with this tyre - you need to change your riding style. This is not a sport touring tyre for all weather more of a dry, warm weather sport tyre for weekend warriors and the occasional track day. This would be a great tyre IF there was extra water grooves/reservoirs around the edge. Tyre cooling can be managed when you become aware of what happens.
