Michelin Wild AM2
Michelin Force AM2
The rubber compounds and casings of both tyres were previously tested in top-level Enduro racing and have been designed to offer the optimal balance between grip, rolling efficiency, longevity, weight and damage resistance. The dual-compound GUM-X Technology features a harder centre area for optimum rolling efficiency and tyre life, combined with softer rubber on the shoulders for cornering grip. The Gravity Shield Technology casing uses a bead-to-bead high-density fibre for increased resistance to impact damage, sidewall cuts and punctures, coupled with a 3×60 TPI casing for stiffness and stability, while still maintaining good comfort levels.
Performance and fitment
The two tyres can be mixed and fitted in front or rear positions are shown below to suit various conditions, rider preferences and riding styles.
