As a long-time tire manufacturer, Michelin has developed a number of innovative tire technologies, including:
HydroChutes™ Technology Need a tire that dominates wet weather conditions? This grove type hastens the evacuation of water, giving you better stability and control in the rain.
IntelliSipe Technology™ Sipes are cuts across the surface of a tire that increase grip and traction in slick conditions. The Intellisipe Technology from Michelin is an advancement in tread engineering that provides exceptional tread block rigidity and interlocking action that optimizes the number of sipes within the tire. This allows the starting tread depth of the tire to be only 10/32nds of an inch, lightening the mass of the tire and increasing fuel efficiency, while providing enhanced safety.
MaxTouch Construction™ Tires are the only things between you and the road MaxTouch has a unique contact-patch shape that evenly distributes the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering. This extends wear life and provides additional grip on the road. This lets the tire to wear evenly, increasing the life of the tire.
