Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the ever popular Michelin Pilot Power 2CT. This has to be one of the best selling sport bike tires of all time and for good reason. Nothing but good things to say about them for the most part. They are a sport tire that is at home or on the track or on the street, Michelin does have some more aggressive tires that are more for the track days and if you are looking for that application then Michelin has more tires available. If your the guy that hits the track occasionally and doing some more aggressive riding on the rode then the 2CTs are definitely one you are going to want to check out. First thing about Michelin Pilot Power 2 CT's, the 2 CT's stand for dual compound so dual compound technology. What that actually means is you have a firmer compound of rubber in the center portion of the tread. The crown of the tire is a firmer rubber and then it drops down to about a 20% softer rubber compound on the side. That is true for both the front and rear tires. So if you were going to rate this softest to hardest in terms of rubber compound then the softest part of the tire is going to be on the front so you have the shoulder of the front tire which is going to be your softest rubber and then you have soft to medium compound on the center of the front so you have that really good braking performance. Obviously the front tire is not put under nearly as much stress as the rear tire when the power is being put down. So the medium compound you find in the front is what makes up the shoulders on the rear tire. Finally in the center of the rear you have the firmest compound out of them all. One thing about Michelin is they have a very soft carcass and I can sit here and push on the tires and you can see how soft they actually are. What this does is it makes it easier for the tire heat up and warm up very quickly. They are also tire pressure sensitive so definitely keep it in check according to your motorcycle or the manufacturer. Once you have the right tire pressure dialed in obviously there are a lot of other things to deal with handling on the bike and they perform really well. They are pretty much the benchmark for sport bike tires they have been around for a long time and there are definitely more sticky tires out there, there are other tires around that will last longer but if you want a tire that is tried and trued and is going to perform really well in a variety of conditions the Pilot Power 2CT is definitely a contender still even though it has been out for a while now. One thing to point out when you are looking at these the curvature of the tire the actual profile these tires have a very high center crown and then they drop off rather rapidly to the sides and then they kind of have a flatter profile towards the shoulders. What that does is it helps get a better feel for the bike in the transitions like when your turning in its going to make the bike feel very light. Then you have a really confidence inspiring patch of rubber on the shoulders that has that softer compound rubber and it will lay down a really nice big contact patch and give you a really good feeling especially with the Michelin name behind it. Its a good solid product. Lets talk about the tread pattern, it is definitely classic you know you probably have seen lots of other guys out there running these but they provide you a really good compromise between a solid slick and lots of rain grooves which are used to evacuate water and other debris away from the tread. You have lots of rain grooves that are criss crossing go all down the center of the tread. It is not so much going to be an issue if you push really hard. They are going to promote even wear and give you a really confident feeling. The front is actually grooved or siped a little bit more. You have a more dense ratio or what they call the land sea ratio of the tire, they are more grooves per square inch of the tire on the front than the rear. Definitely a great set of tires, I cant speak of them enough. You can jump on our website to check the current pricing of them and we have many sizes available.

Information and Details about the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Tires - Z-Rated - Package Specials
made by Michelin
Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Dual Compound Tires were developed using Michelin's newest technology resulting in an innovative design for maximizing wet traction. Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Dual Compound Tires are constructed out of a special compound that enhances cornering power and road grip to give a sure footed feeling on the road. Although Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Dual Compound Tires are excellent in wet conditions, they are unbeatable on dry roads as well. Environmentally sound, patented Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Dual Compound Tires will make the next road trip on your bike feel like the best you've ever had.

Pilot® Power 2CT motorcycle tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot® Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot® Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces.

Features:
  • Track-day tire that's equally at home on the road
  • Real MotoGP technology from the tire company that introduced dual-compound tires in GP racing
  • 20% softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip
  • Lean angles up to 51.2° measured on Michelin test track
  • Precise handling and feedback
  • An extension of the Pilot® Power line, not a replacement
  • Winner, 2009 Motorrad sport tire test
  • Ships from South Carolina

    Just went through my first rear tire on a cbr 600rr. Lasted 6500 miles of mixed riding. The front still has a good amount of tread on it. Handles very well and sticks to the ground great. Had the stock Dunlops before these and WOW!!! night and day difference. Getting the new tire mounted tomorrow morning.

    Excellent tire. The didn't take long to scuff in and stayed planted through the whole process. I have these on an 07 SV1000S and they have about 2000 miles with very little signs of wear. They have a quicker turn in than the Bridgestones BT016 I have on my GSXR 1000 but give up a little high speed stability for it. They really gave my slow pig a quick feel. I don't think you could get a much better tire for around town riding or quick blitzes down canyons.

    I was always a fan of the original Pilot Powers, but I'm just coming off a set of crappy Conti Road Attacks which I decided to try on my 99 Hayabusa. The Contis only gave me about 3K, and they were complete junk the entire time they were on my bike. Skittish, poor feedback. The bike never felt planted.

    Moving back to the Michelins, I could not be happier with the 2CT. They are an instant confidence builder. I only have a couple hundred miles on them so far, so I can't speak about longevity just yet. But if I get 3,000 good miles out of them, I will be happy. It's nice to be back on Michelins.

    I own a 2005 Benelli Tornado RS. I've got about 1,000 miles on these now and there's very little sign of wear. I rode an entire day in a freezing rainstorm and was pushing through deep puddles on the highway at about 80 mph with no trouble at all. I was more afraid than the tires were, they showed no sign of hydroplaning or loss of grip.

    I've also done some deep cornering at high speeds in the mountains and have not lost traction once. I'm going to push the tires more this year and see how hard I can go on them.
    I will never buy anything besides michelin. They're the best I've ever ridden on. Riding for 15 years.

    Makes cornering a dream, I was getting on average 2.5k per set of pilot power - I switched to the 2CT and got almost 6K off of this set alone. Just ordered another set....

    rogpodge  
    I put a set of these tires on my zx-14 and what a difference it made. These are by far the best set of tires I have used for high speed cornering through mnts.

    kneedragger  
    one badass tire if your looking for something glue your bike to the road you need not look any more michelin is your answer michelin is the best tire around.

    Awesome grip - Speed 3   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price, Grip, Feedback.
    Cons: 3k only from the rear. Power Pilot 3s are now available

    I have used nothing on my '09 Triumph Speed Triple except these tires since I went through the stock ones. These are great tires. I ride only in the canyons and track days. The only downside is that I blow through rear tires, about 3k miles is average. Admittedly I do ride them hard, but still. Going to try the Pilot Power 3's next. I've heard good things.

    Noah  
    over 2000 miles on a 2007 S4RS with just showing very light wear, should get 6k or maybe more. Great feel, good turning tire with good feedback

    manymiles  
    so far, 1200 miles on the tires and such a totally different feel of the road and cornering on my 1400 Connie. I really enjoy these tires and they also work well on wet surfaces. I only got 6k off of my OEM set of Bridgstones and hope to get at least that or more.
