Michelin Road 5 Tyre Launch in India
After the success of the Pilot Road 4, the next generation of the popular Road series takes more of an all-purpose approach to an all-season sport and touring tyre. The design of the Michelin Road 5 Tyres takes these complimentary riding styles into account, the edges of the tyre, those that are only called into action during aggressive riding on dry pavement, are uninterrupted expanses of a softer tread compound. The biggest selling point of the Road 5 is wet-weather longevity. In wet conditions – we change the way we ride. Michelin essentially reinvented the wheel when they engineered the water evacuation siping of the Road 5 tyres.
Michelin claims this new tyre comes combining three technologies that give it best-in-class wet-road grip. It gets latest-generation rubber compounds, dual-compound technology and a siped tread pattern. As a typical tyre wears, the negative space between the tread gets progressively smaller and smaller. When the tyre wears, it maintains a more consistent volume of negative space where water can disperse. This translates into more confident wet-weather cornering and emergency braking throughout the life of the tyre. The Michelin Pilot Road 4 sold 1.5 million tyres since its launch four years ago setting a new benchmark and the new Road 5 tyre comes based on that.
