The MICHELIN Road 6 tire delivers 10% longer tread life compared to the previous generation. The MICHELIN Road 6 tire typifies two decades of ongoing innovations and MICHELIN Technologies from our highest level of expertise. MICHELIN 2CT+ Technology, which has been standard on the rear tire, is now applied to the front tire for better rigidity at lean, and more stability when cornering, especially under strong acceleration or heavy braking, compared to the previous generation.

The Dunlop SportSmart TT is a Trackday and Competition Summer tyre designed to be fitted to Motorcycle
Dunlop has announced they will launch a fourth new tyre in their hypersport portfolio in March 2018. The Dunlop SportSmart TT has been developed to meet the needs of riders with the very latest sports bikes and performance roadsters who want to use the same tyre on track and for road riding.
The name SportSmart TT derives from Dunlop’s road focused SportSmart range and adds the letters TT, which refer to “Track Technology”.
The launch of the SportSmart TT marks Dunlop’s comeback to a segment of the market where they last competed with the renowned Qualifier RR over a decade ago.
The Road 5 will vary from the Pilot Road 4 series in a number of ways, but most specifically in its ability to shed water from the tyre and road surface as the tyre wears. Thanks to the XST siping technology that Michelin introduced with the Pilot Road 3, the tires have a great ability to evacuate water from the tire surface ensuring the rubber connects to the road. As the tire wears down, the grooves in the tyres decrease in volume and thus are less effective in evacuating water.
The new Road 5 sipes, now called XST Evo, has been adapted from Michelin’s automotive division. The technology is borrowed from Michelin’s Evergrip tread design which was first introduced in the MICHELIN Premier A/S tyre in 2014.
The combination of three technologies helped the MICHELIN ROAD 5 to deliver the best wet-weather grip in a recent in-house comparison with the new tyre’s five main rivals.
To achieve this level of performance, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 benefits from:
Latest-generation rubber compounds,
Dual-compound technology (MICHELIN 2CT and MICHELIN 2CT+ Technology),
The Spirit ST is an evolution of the current Storm 3D X-M, which will stay in the British firm’s line-up as a budget option. The new rubber comes in a variety of sizes to suit everything from middleweight nakeds, through to retros, sports tourers, superbikes and adventure bikes. Unlike many of Avon’s rivals, who produce a dual ply rear version for heavier touring bikes, the Spirit ST comes in just one version to covers the whole spectrum of machines.
Highly loaded silica compound combined with state of the art polymer technology for excellent wet and dry traction and handling
Interlocking three dimensional points hidden in the sipes to improve stability and grip, limit tread flex and allow the tyre to warm up quickly (3D Sipes)
Avon’s latest technology construction design gives ultra high performance handling and stability characteristics
Multi-compound rear tyres for all round tyre performance (TE)
Covered by road hazard warranty (only available in UK and North America)
