Michelin PILOT ROAD3 - XST Sipe Technology - exceptional wet grip
With the new Michelin Pilot Road 3, the unexpected will leave you unfazed - even with a surprise puddle in the middle of a corner.
Michelin Pilot Road 3's thin sipes literally slice through the film of water which is then cleared by the grooves of the tread pattern.
Meanwhile, any excess water is temporarily stored in small 'wells'. Just theory? Not at all! Our tests* (*in-house test carried out at Pontanges, France, in March 2010) prove that, thanks to Michelin XST technology, the wet grip performance of the new Michelin Pilot Road3 is superior even to that delivered by its illustrious predecessor.
2CT DUAL COMPOUND TECHNOLOGY:
- Softer compounds on the shoulders for maximum grip
- Harder-wearing compounds on the centre of the tyre tread for maximum tyre life
- The 180/55-17 tyre denoted by "B" is designed for loaded touring or two-up riding
Also available is the Pilot® Road 3 Trail: XST and 2CT technology in a state-of-the-art road tire, designed especially for adventure touring bikes.
