Michelin’s latest Wild Tire Range consists of a variety of tires, each featuring its own tread patterns for hardpack, intermediate and extreme riding. However, each range carries different widths, casing and compounds. You can choose from 26 tires in the line-up.
The WildRock’R range is for extreme terrain. The tires featured under this group have circumferential grooves for precision steering. It has huge tread blocks to keep you from feeling the punishing force of a rocky terrain. It also has aggressive shoulder blocks to make climbing out of tight spots easy for you to do.
The WildRun’R range is for road training purposes. It promises a smooth ride with 1.40 size and larger air volume. If you’re more concerned on weight, the 1.10 Advanced Light is ideal since it also has reinforced density to withstand punctures as you train.
The WildRace’R range is for smooth terrain or hardpack. The tread blocks are placed evenly and the shoulder blocks are positioned to get a strong grip on cross slopes. The tires are available in five sizes.
There are also the Grip’R for mixed terrain and Dig’R for muddy downhill riders. The Grip’R has a size range from 2 inches to 2.6 inches. As for the Dig’R, it is only available in 2.2 inches.
Across all Wild Tire range is a Gumwall sidewall technology applied for increased durability and guard against punctures. This also guarantees an airtight seal for tubeless options. Four protective layers are positioned under the treads and three more layers under the sidewalls. As in previous tires by Michelin, dual compound technology is also present to make the tires tougher.
