Tyre Tech Talk – June 2020 Dirt and Trail Magazine

by Bruce de Kock, Owner of Bike Tyre Warehouse

Original article published by Dirt and Trail Magazine, June 2020 Issue

Friday deadline and its Thursday night I know I am back at work, we are lucky our industry has opened up for business albeit with conditions so all of us must now kick start the engine most survived the crash 08/09 it’s that time again – Stay Positive.

Right back to the real business, the new Michelin Power Line: Four distinct ranges of sport tyres namely the Michelin Power 5, the Michelin Power GP, the Michelin Power Cup and the Michelin Power Slick.

EICMA – Press Kit 2019

“The new Michelin power line places the accent on delivering unique sensations, performance and riding enjoyment to riders who derive immense satisfaction from taking the perfect line through the corners, who know they can improve their lap times when riding to the maximum of their and their bikes potential, or who seek unbridled pleasure, completely at one with their machine”.

A quick look at all four of them:

MICHELIN POWER 5

The Michelin Power 5 targets sports motorcycle owners who use their bikes intensively on public roads. The priorities of these riders range from long tyre life and good grip performance, whatever the conditions but more especially in wet weather – to efficient traction and reassuring handling under braking. The wet weather grip provided by the Michelin Power 5 is exceptional.
