Michelin tyres are divided into 3 distinct lines to meet consumer needs.
COMPETITION LINE Our premium tyre offers the best performance for competition use. PERFORMANCE LINE The most balanced performance for training use. ACCESS LINEFor occasional use.
For competition use which provides grip and performance for mixed and soft terrain. Thanks to a robust casing and excellent grip for safer riding at speed.
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. The tread gives more grip and the height of the lugs is particularly tailored to front-wheel use.
More protection: Bead-to-bead reinforcement to optimize puncture resistance.
More mileage: Thanks to the robust "Trail Shield" 3x60 TPI casing which allows you to ride safely for longer.
Other technology: More light weight with the possibility of rolling at low pressure (with Tubeless): limited punctures thanks to the ready tubeless technology.
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.
CASING-REINFORCEMENTS 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 CASING improves resistance to external attack on the sidewalls and reduces punctures due to impact or pinching.
3x60 TPI casing which is lightweight, durable and robust with a 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.
Tyres with the E-Bike Ready label can be fitted on electric bikes (maximum 25km/h).
