The XC Tyre expecially for mud
Remarkable performance in the mud in terms both of grip and self-cleaning thanks to:
A new, well-spaced tread pattern
A new "Twisted" tread block design
Specially adapted rubber compounds
The Michelin Wild MUD Advanced tyre enjoys the benefits of the GUM-X 55 shoreA compound technology: Rubber compound specially developed for MUD
Learn about the effect of the “Twisted“ tread blocks for immediate performance:
- The very great "Twisted" mobility (deformation) of the tread blocks gives the tyre optimum penetration deep into the mud, looking for hard ground and grip.
- Conversely, when the tread block is no longer in contact with the ground, the tyre resumes its initial position showing remarkable self-cleaning properties guaranteeing exceptional mobility.
-1- "Twisted" tread blocks for easier self-cleaning
-2- Small steps on the top of the tread blocks for good penetration into the mud (*see picture n°2)

MICHELIN GUM-x Series
MICHELIN GUM-X Series is the latest generation of tyre compound developed by MICHELIN for their MICHELIN Wild Advanced Mountain Bike range.
Available for the whole of the new MICHELIN Wild Grip’R Advanced and MICHELIN Wild Race’R Advanced Ultimate ranges.
MICHELIN's experience in the definition of these new rubber compounds enables mountain bikers to enjoy an excellent balance of performance between grip, efficiency and wear.
MICHELIN GUM-X Series Compound is available in different shore (durometer) hardness ratings: the lower the index, the softer the rubber and, conversely, the higher the index, the harder the rubber.
MICHELIN Advanced Technology
The technology which changes everything
"Advanced Technology" tyres benefit from superior performance thanks to the special nature of their tread patterns and rubber compounds (GUM-X series) or their casing architecture (ex Reinforced Technology)
Aramide beads, designed to be flexible and light.
When designing their cycle tyres, MICHELIN use two types of bead, flexible beads (TS) and rigid beads (TR).
The flexible beads invented and developed by MICHELIN are made exclusively of aramide fabric, which is also to be found in bulletproof vests.
This textile fabric has a very great resistance to extension whilst being very lightweight.
These beads therefore have the special features of being very light and very strong, which reduces the overall weight by 40 to 70 grams per tyre.
MICHELIN high performance Road and Mountain Bike tyres are all equipped with flexible beads.
