The New 2011 Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tires. You always had to make a choice. The grip of a softer tire – or the durability of a harder tire? But thanks to Michelin 2CT dual-compound technology, MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 tires will offer both grip and further extended durability in one tire. By integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot Road 3 tire is like two tires in one, but focused on high mileage.
Expect the new Pilot Road 3 Tire to be the best combination of wet grip and tread life of any comparable tire. It will inspire rider confidence in challenging conditions, plus get even more mileage. The Pilot Road 3 range covers 94% of all sport touring radial fitments. This tire will be a vast improvement on other dual-compound tires in the sport touring tire segment. Innovative front and rear tread designs. The Pilot Road 3 2CT tire will surely be an improvement on the Pilot Road and 2CT. They were the Winner of the 2009 Motorrad and Moto Revue sport touring tire tests.
