Michelin City Grip 2
Being able to count on a tyre that they can use whatever the season clearly facilitates customer choice, while the availability of a long list of sizes covering not only small-engined models but also maxi- and electric scooters further helps to cover consumers varied needs.
The Michelin City Grip 2 is designed to address the demands of modern scooter owners, including high grip performance on all the types of road they may come across in and around towns and cities. To achieve this, engineers working out of Michelin's Technology Centre conceived an innovative compound which features specific materials, including silica. Along with the tyre's new 'shark's tooth' tread pattern design, it provides unprecedented grip performance in wet weather, with no detriment to the acclaimed longevity associated with Michelin tyres, like it's predecessor the Michelin City Grip.
Silica-based compounds provide a very high level of grip on wet or slippery surfaces, including white stripes.
Still a reference in longevity*, worthy of the Michelin brand!
