February 7th 2005. Michelin's new Power Race tyre is a multi-compound, race-developed tyre, designed for road use.

Featuring Two-Compound Technology (2CT), the Power Race has a soft or extra-soft compound on the shoulders and a more durable compound at the centre. This is intended to offer a faster warm-up time, better grip at full lean and optimum traction for straight-line acceleration and braking.

There are seven different compounds in the range. Each tyre has a different function, depending on the rider's preferences. The Medium rear features 70 per cent medium-compound tread, at the centre, and two 15 per cent soft-tread strips at the shoulders. The Medium front has a 15 per cent medium-compound strip at the centre and two 42.5 per cent soft-compound outside sections.
