Michelin tyres are divided into 4 distinct lines to meet consumer needs. RACING LINE A range dedicated to competition. Specifically designed to help you reach the top step of the podium. COMPETITION LINE Our premium tyre offers the best performance for competition use. PERFORMANCE LINE The most balanced performance for training use. ACCESS LINE For occasional use. Weight: 760g
The next generation XC race tyre for more grip on rides off the beaten path. The tyres are used by our cross country pros for racing at the highest level! More grip: THE WILD XC tyre provides maximum braking and responsive cornering inspired by Wild Enduro ranges. The MICHELIN Gum-X compound optimizes the balance between rolling efficiency and traction. More protection: The Cross Shield 2 casing provides extra pinch protection designed to prevent tread and sidewall damage 4 x 150 TPI. Other technology: More light weight and low pressure (Tubeless): limited puncture due to tubeless ready technology. Front/Rear: Soft terrain.
RUBBERS 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.
BI-COMPOUND: Series of rubbers specically designed for Enduro use, which offer outstanding grip.
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.
2x150 TPI casing providing lightness, endurance and strength thanks to the very high-density reinforcement ply. Provides extra pinch protection designed to prevent tread and sidewall damage with 4x 150 TPI.
Reinforcement on the bead to absorb energy where pinch flats occur. 4 x 150 TPI
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.
