The Enduro tyre for use on dry and extreme terrains
The sculpture of the MICHELIN Wild ROCK’R² Advanced Reinforced was completely re-designed to allow the best compromise between a ease of rolling and exceptional braking.
A tyre answering all your expectations even in the worst conditions:
Excellent steering accuracy
Massive side blocks creating a rail insuring remarkable steering accuracy
Numerous small sipes in the tread pattern, increasing the mobility of tread blocks improving adhesion.
Tyres benefit from the newest compound: the MAGI-X Series or the GUM-X series
Ease of rolling and exceptional braking thanks to the alternate transverse and longitudinal blocks in forms of teeth establishing the tread
The "REINFORCED" casing allows you handle the harshest of terrrains
It offers a good compromise between weight and strength which is ideal for Enduro riding
The MICHELIN MAN advises:
For optimal performances, the MICHELIN MAN recommends you use mainly a combination of the Gum-X Series on the front and the MAGI-X Series on the rear.

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)
MICHELIN Reinforced Technology
For an even stronger casing
Thanks to its additional protective ply running from one bead to the other, MICHELIN Reinforced Technology improves the casing's resistance to external attack on the sidewalls and reduces punctures due to impact or pinching.
This technology is particularly suited to Enduro use.
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..
