Low rolling resistance, excellent resistance to wear and a better grip thanks to the Bi-Compound technology
Two rubber compunds in one tread: In the centre a rubber mix to give more rigidity and on the shoulder area a rubber compound to give good grip when cornering.
Excellent protection against punctures thanks to a High Density-Protection ply on top of the casing.
- HD-Protection puncture ply: +10 % better resistance to punctures (2) on average compared to the main competitor!
- New casing ply - 3X110 TPI
- Tread area is our “Bi compound” technology: +30 % better grip on wet ground (1) on average compared to the main competitor
Lateral tread width optimised for improved grip when cornering

MICHELIN HDProtectionHD Protection consists of crossed textile High Density reinforcement.
The technology HD Protection consists of textile crossed reinforcements of High Density
The HD Protection technology ensures the best compromise between excellent puncture resistance and low rolling resistance, without penalizing the weight of tyres especially for competition.
HD Protection was introduced in competition in 1986. Michelin R&D continues to improve year after year the performance of its reinforcement anti-flats tyres
Michelin also proposes variants according to the usage:
HD Protection Aramide for a usage in difficult conditions.
HD Protection Bead2Bead for a usage sportives ridingLearn more
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
