The best rider efficiency thanks to the very low level of rolling resistance
but with no concession on the grip or handling
- A low level of rolling resistance thanks a 30% lighter casing (150 tpi instead of 110 tpi). This makes it possible to strongly limit the deformations of the casing during rolling and thus limit the loss of energy.
- New casing ply - 3X150 TPI
- Tread area is a “Bi compound” rubber
Lateral tread width optimised for improved grip when cornering

MICHELIN Bi-CompoundBi-compound - two different rubber compounds in the tread area.
The Technology Bi-compound, has two different rubber compounds within the tread area.
- The rubber compound in the centre of the tread assures the optimal transmission of torque, that traction when pedaling or when braking. These rubber compounds are designed and optimised to increase resistance to wear, but also help braking safely on wet ground.
- The rubber compound at the shoulder area of the tread brings maximum performance and safety when leaning into a curve or turn giving exceptional levels of grip on dry as well as wet surfaces.
Technology Bi-Compound was invented in 1995 and Michelin R&D continues to improve year after year the performance of this rubber compound and proposes them in many road tyres giving the benefit of this technology, for maximum of grip and resistance to wear for the demanding cyclist.Learn more
