Light Tire Technology (LTT):MICHELIN® Power Pure™ tires are some two pounds lighter per pair* than other comparable sportbike tires, without compromising durability or performance. LTT reduces unsprung weight and rotating mass, benefiting acceleration, braking and grip.
Two Compound Technology (2CT):
The center compound withstands aggressive acceleration and braking, while the softer shoulder compound helps ensure outstanding grip on road or track. Wider 2CT shoulders compared to other MICHELIN® tires mean that most or all of the contact patch is made up of softer, grippier rubber when the bike is leaned into corners.
Semi-slick tread design:
Grooves cover only 12% of the tread surface, helping to maximize the contact patch. The resulting grip helps facilitate extreme lean angles. MICHELIN® Power Pure™ tread patterns were inspired by those of MICHELIN® racing rain tires.
New racing-derived tread compounds:
Michelin enlisted the experience of its competition chemists and materials experts to develop three all-new tread compounds for Power Pure.
