Michelin tyres are divided into 3 distinct lines to meet consumer needs.
COMPETITION LINEOur premium tyre offers the best performance for competition use.
PERFORMANCE LINEThe most balanced performance for training use.
ACCESS LINE For occasional use.
The most agile Cross-country tyre for competition use.
More grip: Gum-X 3D: The new generation of top performance rubber. With a blend of three different rubbers: race compound, traction compound and grip compound.
More protection: Cross Shield casing for increased strength with 3x110 TPI high-density fibres.
More mileage: The perfect combination of new tread pattern with a new generation of 3 different rubber compounds for increased durability.
Front Use: Mixed terrain.
Front/Rear: Soft terrain.
All of MICHELIN’s experience has gone into defining these latest mixes, allowing mountain bikers to obtain the optimal performance compromise between grip, efficiency and wear. Compound are produced in varying levels of shore hardness the lower the index value, the greater the gum softness; conversely, as the index value rises, the gum becomes harder.
TRI-COMPOUND:The new generation of top performance rubber. With a blend of three different rubbers : race underlay compound, traction compound and grip compound. Available in the Competition Line.
A tyre’s casing is made up of threads, the thickness of which varies according to the tyre range, makes it robust, flexible, efficient and lightweight. The more threads there are, the finer they are, making the tyre lighter. On the contrary, the less threads there are, the bigger they are, making the tyre stronger. TPI (Threads Per Inch) refers to the density of threads per inch.
Thanks to its additional protective ply running from one bead to the other, Michelin SHIELD CASINGimproves resistance to external attack on the sidewalls and reduces punctures due to impact or pinching.
3x150 TPI casing providing lightness, endurance and strength thanks to the very high-density reinforcement ply.
Tubeless Ready tyres can be fitted without an inner tube provided that a tubeless wheel is used, the maximum pressure is not exceeded, sealant is added and the tyre pressure is checked before each ride.
