The MICHELIN FORCE AM² is designed as a fast-rolling tyre optimised for mixed terrain, hard-pack or trail centre conditions. It has a directional tread pattern designed for excellent rolling efficiency, but which also offers high grip levels under braking and in corners. The tread features elongated centre blocks for reduced rolling resistance and less ground penetration, but with prominent block edges for braking grip and traction. The shoulder blocks are inspired by the MICHELIN DH22 tyre and these ensure grip and stability in corners, along with progressive and predictable handling characteristics. In addition, an optimized ratio between tread blocks and grooves helps maintain momentum on flowing trails.
The rubber compounds and casings of these tyres were previously tested in top-level Enduro racing and have been designed to offer the optimal balance between grip, rolling efficiency, longevity, weight and damage resistance. The dual-compound GUM-X Technology features a harder centre area for optimum rolling efficiency and tyre life, combined with softer rubber on the shoulders for cornering grip. The Gravity Shield Technology casing uses a bead-to-bead high density fibre for increased resistance to impact damage, sidewall cuts and punctures, coupled with a 3x60 TPI casing for stiffness and stability, while still maintaining good comfort levels.
A specialised tyre for hard and mixed terrain, which optimizes efficiency for All Mountain riding.
Tread pattern design reduces rolling resistance during All Mountain riding. In combination with Gum-X technology, it optimizes grip on hard terrain.
More robustness thanks to the light and robust Gravity Shield casing, this tyre is ideal for All Mountain riding.
