ROAD TECHNOLOGIES

Rubber's characteristics give the tyre different performances.
Rubbers can be either Mono-Compound or Bi-Compound.

bike technologies road technologies x race compound

New generation of rubber compounds designed to improve rolling resistance.

bike technologies road technologies race 2 compound

New generation of rubber compounds designed to improve rolling resistance.

bike technologies road technologies bi compound

Bi-Compound: Invented by Michelin in 1995, this is a mix of two rubber compounds on the tread providing central rolling efficiency and lateral grip (e.g. MICHELIN Power Endurance which combines Grip Compound and X-Miles Compound).

bike technologies road technologies grip compound

A rubber compound developed to provide more grip (Range : MICHELIN Power All Season).

bike technologies road technologies x miles compound

A rubber compound providing abrasion resistance associated to a thicker layer on the crown. Increases durability (Range: MICHELIN Power Endurance).

bike technologies road technologies race compound

A rubber compound with a low deformation rate, offering low rolling resistance. Derived from Moto GP technologies, this compound also provides excellent dry grip (Range: MICHELIN Power Competition).

CASINGS

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.

 

ARAMID BEAD

Beads in aramid that combines strenght and lightness for better security and an easier tyre fitting.

REINFORCEMENTS

Reinforcements made to improve tyre strength.

bike technologies road technologies air proof

Fitted with sealant, makes the tyre Tubeless compatible at high pressure.

bike technologies road technologies aramid protek

Reinforcement in the tyre casing to provide strength at the crown and minimize punctures. Aramid is stronger than traditional materials and is much more cut resistant and is the material used for manufacturing body armor.

bike technologies road technologies aramid protek plus

High density reinforcement in the tyre casing to provide strength at the crown and minimize punctures. Aramid is stronger than traditional materials and is much more cut resistant  and is the material used for manufacturing body armor.

bike technologies road technologies bead 2 bead protek

High-density cross-laid reinforcement protecting the whole tyre casing. The crown and sidewalls are reinforced to provide maximum protection and durability (Range: MICHELIN Power Gravel, MICHELIN Pro 4, MICHELIN Krylion2).

TREAD PATTERNS

bike technologies road technologies grip design

Tread pattern designed to provide grip for fast road use.

bike technologies road technologies hi grip design

Tread pattern designed to provide grip for fast road use, in all weather conditions.

bike technologies road technologies gravel design

Tread pattern designed for gripping trails with its small blocks.

OTHER TECHNOLOGIES

bike technologies road technologies tl ready

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.

bike technologies road technologies disc brake

Disc Brake Ready technology enables the tyre to withstand the powerful braking of bikes with disc brakes thanks to its special rubber.
