MICHELIN Wild GripeR2 26 x 2.35 Advanced, Reinforced, GumX, TL-Ready
The Michelin Wild Grip'R Advanced Reinforced is an excellent tire for competitions. It is ideal for different substrates, it offers very good cornering grip and good directional control and is also designed for muddy XC trails.
Both the distribution and the shape of the central tread blocks have been optimized to achieve the ideal compromise between grip, efficiency and self-cleaning capability. In order to improve the stability of the tread blocks, these were reinforced at its base. Slats provide more grip, while the intermediate webs prevent a loss of rigidity of the tread block. For a constant and effective cornering grip height, distance and angle of inclination of the tread blocks on the tire shoulder are optimized. Additional cornering grip is generated by small steps in the profile block (edge effect). Small notches on the outer sides of the shoulder profile give this a double function: while responding flexibly to lighter load occurs at high loads, a blocking effect on, which prevents further bending and the associated loss of traction. The cornering grip of the tire remains constant up to the extreme limit.
MICHELIN GUM-X Series is the latest generation of rubber compounds, the MICHELIN has developed for mountain bike series MICHELIN Wild Advanced.
Available for all tires of the new series MICHELIN Wild Grip'R Advanced and MICHELIN Wild Race'R Advanced Ultimate.
The entire long-standing Michelin experience has been incorporated into the new Gummmimischungen that offer mountain bikers an excellent balance between grip, mileage and durability. MICHELIN GUM-X Series Compound uses different degrees of hardness (shore): the lower the value, the softer the rubber, the higher the value, the harder.
The tires of the series "Advanced Technology" offer even better performance due to their characteristics: A special profile, a new rubber compound (GUM-X) and a new structure of the carcass (Reinforced Technology).
For even more resistant carcass
Thanks to the additional protective layer from wire to wire, the MICHELIN Reinforced technology makes the carcass even more resistant to damage on the sides and protects against punctures by shock or perforation.
Lightweight and flexible aramid collapsible cores
For his bicycle tire MICHELIN uses two types of collapsible cores: flexible and hard collapsible cores.
The flexible collapsible cores were invented by Michelin and developed and consist exclusively of aramid fibers, which are used for example in bullet-proof vests application.
This textile fiber is very resistant, at a very low weight, which can be saved per tire between 40 and 70 grams.
The road and mountain bike tires from Michelin high performance all have flexible collapsible cores.
