Enter the Power 5: Michelin's next generation sportbike tire.
Improving upon the Michelin Power RS, the Power 5 Tire is at the apex of street riding tire technology. Eclipsing the former RS's dry performance and adding even better wet-weather grip, the Power 5 is as superb as a daily ridden tire can be. Michelin’s Adaptive Casing Technology uses a single ply carcass at an angle close to 90° to increase grip and pliability at the crown of the tire, yet folds that single ply over on itself on each sidewall to stiffen it - resulting in less sidewall flex and better tracking through corners.
An 11% void ratio is matched between front and rear tire sizes. Rubber compounds use a mix of Michelin's proprietary 2CT and 2CT+ silica blends to balance longevity with dry and wet performance. The patented "velvet" sidewall treatment creates just one more reason for onlookers to ogle your ride's new shoes.
Incorporates ACT (Adaptive Casing Technology) developed from Michelin race tires for improved grip and unique feel
Front tire profile optimized to promote quick turn in and accurate feedback
2CT compound used on the front tire to enhance corner grip without compromising longevity
2CT+ compound on rear tire reduces sidewall flex at lean and increases corner exit stability
