I remember them in the late nineties in various colours. Can’t remember much before then anyway. Don’t really remember much about last week either.

The Axial TdF and Giro Italia are smooth while the Multi coloured Axial Bi Sports have a tread pattern. Having done similar miles on both from new the Giro versions I have seem to wear faster and have suffered from puctures where as the Bi sports have been trouble free.
Michelin is a good call Thanks

I think I had a set of TdF ones in red, white and blue. They lasted until the canvas started to show - I thought it was dirt on the tread! However, I did have some punctures but only in a 'normal' way.

Had some of these (Axial Pro) in black/green on my Giant when I picked it up, late 90's as far as I can tell.
Very light/thin, but quick with it.
