Tire Evaluation – Michelin Dynamic Sport

The Michelin Dynamic Sport is Michelin’s cheapest road bicycle tire. It is only available as a wire bead variation in 23, 25, and 28 millimeter sizes. Unfortunately, not a great deal of information is found about this particular scooter. Michelin clarifies the Dynamic Sport as a robust and long-wearing scooter also that it is available in a lot of different colours. The sparse info I have discovered is that this scooter includes a 30 TPI casing, which is not that exciting.

The Michelin Dynamic Sport is a direct competitor to additional low-cost tires such as the Continental Ultra Sport (review), Vittoria Zaffiro (inspection) and Schwalbe Lugano (inspection). Since I have already examined those tires, it’ll be possible to compare them side by side. The Ultra Sport is my current favorite at the cheap category. Most economical tires tack on security, Michelin does assert the Dynamic Sport for a ‘powerful’ tire. Let us examine and discover if this tire is in fact powerful!

All rolling resistance evaluations are conducted on our rolling resistance test system. Read our The Evaluation page for a detailed explanation about how we examine tires.

Do not forget to have a look at the review pages to make it simpler to compare all of tires which were examined.

Because it is a wire bead tire, it’s a greater weight than many folding tires right from the beginning, the steel cable is thicker than the kevlar cable utilized in folding tires. Michelin claims 305 g, my sample comes in at 304 grams. The Dynamic Sport is a little scooter because of the rated size. Measured width of this carcass comes in at 25 mm, height comes in at 23 mm. This is the tiniest 25C rated tire I have measured up to today, most come in at 26 – 27 mm wide on a 17C rim.

The brand new tire thickness dimensions both come in at quite average values. Overall tire thickness in the middle of the scooter is 3.2 mm, the sidewalls have a depth of 0.7 mm.

Maximum enabled air pressure as indicated on the sidewall is 102 psi. I’d inflate the Dynamic Sport into 120 psi to have the ability to maintain the outcomes consistent across the website. Fortunately, the tire did not burst :-RRB-

Rolling resistance in the over-inflated air pressure of 120 psi is 17.3 watts. In an air pressure of 100 psi, rolling resistance climbs to 18.1 watts. In the even reduced air pressure of 80 psi, rolling resistance is 19.5 watts.

Rolling resistance is a great bit higher when compared to the Continental Ultra Sport. The Ultra Sport remains the best performing cheap tire by far. In comparison to this Vittoria Zaffiro, rolling resistance is quite similar. The Zaffiro includes a lower rolling resistance at 120 psi and 100 psi. At 80 psi that the Dynamic Sport can outperform the Zaffiro by 0.6 watts.

Though Michelin clarifies the Dynamic Sport as a hardy scooter, functionality from the tread puncture resistance evaluation is awful. Having a rating of 8 points, it is the lowest scoring street bicycle tire up to now. From the sidewall evaluation, it scores 4 points, and it can be a low to average price. The Ultra Sport and Zaffiro both dent 10 / 4 in these evaluations.

I really enjoy the Guru 4 tires from Michelin, but I completely can not suggest the Dynamic Sport. Though rolling resistance is adequate, it has outperformed from the Continental Ultra Sport. The Conti matches the exact same cheap class but has a considerably lower rolling resistance. I am also quite disappointed with the operation of this Dynamic Sport from the puncture tests, it scores the lowest score so far and has outperformed from the Ultra Sport inside this evaluation too.

If you are actually searching for cheap tires, then catch the Continental Ultra Sport II’s (inspection). These are best-in-class tires. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I think that it’s well worth it to invest slightly more on tires and choose a set of Vittoria Rubino Pro (inspection) or Continental Grand Prix (inspection). Both those tires have a lower rolling resistance, better puncture resistance, lower weight, and may be had for slightly more than the really cheap tires.
