MICHELIN ACT - Adaptive Casing TechnologyFor a better stability on straight line and at strong lean angle
MICHELIN ACT : Adaptive Casing Technology ensures varying tyre rigidity at different angles of lean. The tyre switches gradually from a flexible crown for straight-line precision to increasingly rigid shoulders depending on lean angle for optimised cornering stability.The softer casing limits the vivacity and kickback. To improves the feeling at the limit, a light movement appears to warn the rider he’s getting to the limit of the tire.Learn more
MICHELIN SRT Silica Rain Technology
Silica Rain Technology (SRT) improves grip in cooler temperatures and on wet roads, without compromising tread life.Learn more
MICHELIN SCT Synthetic Component TechnologyMICHELIN Synthetic Component Technology SCT consists of 2 components: MICHELIN Racing Synthetic Elastomers (MRSE) and MICHELIN High Tech Synthetic Compound (HTSC).
MICHELIN Racing Synthetic Elastomers (MRSE) used in the rubber compounds in conjunction with High Tech Synthetic Compound (HTSC) resins promote ultra-fast warm up to optimum operational temperature.Learn more
MICHELIN XST X-Sipe TechnologyMICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology incorporates patented sipes and integrated water reservoir technology, giving increased water drainage capacity.
The MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology offers more grip on wet roads, due to its patented sipes and water reservoirs incorporated into the tread, giving increased water drainage capacity.
This technology is used in the MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 :Learn more
MICHELIN NST Near Slick TechnologyWith less than 5% groove ratio (The ratio of grooves as a percentage of the tread surface area) it is close to a slick!
The amount of rubber in contact with the ground is important for grip, allowing lean angles of up to 60°.Learn more
MICHELIN ADT Amplified Density TechnologyA high-density more-rigid tire casing, which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling.
Aramid tread plies on the rear tire resist centrifugal growth reduce weight and provide excellent stability.Learn more
MICHELIN 2CT Two Compound TechnologyMICHELIN 2CT dual-compound technology successfully accomplishes two conflicting ideals: wear resistance in the centre of the tread, and grip on the shoulders.
The rubber compound in the center is harder to withstand aggressive acceleration and braking.
The rubber compound in the shoulder is softer to maximise grip on the lean angle.
Here is an example of the distribution of soft rubber and hard rubber on a set of Michelin Power Pure:Learn more
MICHELIN 2CT+The NEW 2CT generation!
Harder rubber underneath the softer rubber on the shoulders gives better rigidity at lean, for more stability when cornering, especially under strong acceleration.Learn more
MICHELIN 2AT Dual Angle TechnologyFor a more stable and comfortable ride.
Michelin's patented new 2AT Dual Angle Technology is a revolutionary design architecture for motorcycle tires that delivers the stiffness you need for heavier touring bikes, and the comfort you desire for the long ride. MICHELIN 2AT uniquely combines elements of both bias and radial tire designs during the manufacturing process in order to deliver the best of both worlds: the extra load carrying capacity of bias and the riding please of a radial.Learn more
MICHELIN XST+ X-Sipes TechnologyThe new XST generation !
Patented sipes and integrated water resevoirs allow the MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology to deliver exceptional grip on wet roads. XST + technology includes transverse sipes to improve wet braking and chamfers added to the sipe edges to help prevent abnormal wear in extreme conditions. The transverse sipes allow the front tire to break the water film and ensure outstanding braking in wet weather.Learn more
MICHELIN MCP Maximized Contact PatchWith a new competition carcass with more plies, the tire is more rigid and the contact area is increased. Increases bike stability at the front, which aids late braking and quick turn in.
