MICHELIN Launches Two NEW Trail and All-Mountain Tyres

The MICHELIN WILD AM2 has been designed for mixed to softer terrain where its more aggressive tread pattern ensures high levels of grip, but with a reduced focus on rolling efficiency. Tall centre blocks are inspired by those found on the MICHELIN DH34 tyre and offer a maximum ground penetration during braking for good stability and transfer of braking forces in soft conditions. The shoulder blocks are again inspired by the MICHELIN DH22 but are modified to increase bite in soft conditions for increased grip, stability and progressive handling in these difficult conditions.

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.
