New From Michelin

Michelin Krylion Carbon®
This is a training tyre with a reinforced tread that offers exceptional durability. Based on tests conducted at the Michelin Technology Center, the tyre can (according to their press release) run for more than an average of 8,000 kilometres before wearing out.

Its bias-ply casing, featuring a belt of tread-reinforcing plies of High Density Puncture Protector (HDPP) twill weave fabric, ensures impressive puncture resistance. The 127 threads per inch (TPI) fabric means that the Krylion Carbon® is lighter, more flexible and offers less rolling resistance than a 33 TPI tyre of the same size and model.

The Michelin Krylion Carbon® is designed to deliver exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions. The new tyre is available in three sizes, with three different border colours inspired by the Pro² Race range.

Sizes and colours:
700 x 20C / 127 TPI / 220 grams
Black with light grey border

700 x 23C / 127 TPI / 235 grams
Black with yellow border
Black with red border
Black with light grey border

700 x 25C / 127 TPI / 290 grams / Black with light grey border

Michelin Lithion
This is designed for touring and sports cyclists. Its herringbone tread pattern and silica tread compound promotes grip when cornering, and its 60 TPI casing offers comfort and toughness.

Sizes and colours:
700x23C / 60 TPI / 230 grams /Black with dark grey border
Grey with dark grey border
Blue with dark blue border (due April)
