Michelin Power Pure Motorcycle Tire

  
Michelin, a famous tyre manufacturer introduces Michelin Power Pure tyre designed for sportbikes. It help you save over 2 lbs (0.90kg) over rival tires such as the Bridgestone BT-016, Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier II, Metzeler Sportec M3 and Pirelli Diablo Rosso. This is thanks to the Light Tire Technology (LTT) and a second-generation Michelin 2CT compound which are inspired by the world of racing and produced by the Michelin Power Research Team. Resulting a better handling motorcycle with more riding enjoyment. Incontestable proof of its performance is the choice of Power Pure as original equipment for the 2010 Yamaha R1.

Michelin Light Tire Technology is centered around three key points. Beginning in the design stage, the goal of reducing weight while maintaining or improving performance in other areas was clearly defined. Instead of merely combining different technologies, Michelin engineers decided to re-think their tire design methodology. The tire’s structure, profile (i.e. shape) and constituent elements were designed simultaneously rather than in stages.

Secondly, Michelin Power Pure tires incorporate advanced materials like aramid fibers, which are used, for example, in the aerospace industry. And finally, although the tire is lighter, its tread is just as thick as that of the previous-generation tire.

The Two-Compound Technology of MICHELIN Power Pure has evolved compared to MICHELIN Pilot Power 2CT and puts more maxi-grip soft tread compound on the tyre shoulders, which helps provide much more grip much earlier during cornering.
Gyroscopic forces mean that running a tyre which is 2 lbs (0.90kg)lighter is equivalent to saving 6 lbs (2.70kg) on rims or 8 lbs (3.63kg) on brake discs. “A lighter tyre/wheel assembly which readily moves in response to road bumps will have more grip when tracking over an imperfect road,” the company says.
Reducing the weight of unsprung mass reduces inertia due to the tyre, which creates the gyroscopic effect. The lower the inertia due to the tyre and wheel assembly, the smaller the gyroscopic effect, which makes the motorcycle more agile and more fun to ride, especially during changing angles from left-to-right and right-to-left.
To date, MICHELIN has notched up 14 Endurance world titles, plus 360 GP500/MotoGP wins and 26 world titles since 1973. For Michelin, over and above winning, racing serves just one purpose, which is to pass on the benefits of competition to everyday road users. What is good for the safety and performance of a champion, is all the more so for you!
