The new Michelin Anakee III has a unique and innovative tread pattern, developed through Michelin's technological expertise, which features bevel-cut central sipes for improved lateral grip.

Thanks to new silica-based compounds, the new Michelin Anakee III rear tyre lasts up to 20% longer than the Anakee II, which already offered class-leading mileage. In addition, the silica helps to improve wet grip while the tread design reduces irregular wear, while delivering a lively response and consistent behaviour as the miles roll by, for greater safety and a more enjoyable ride.

The new Michelin Anakee III will be available in 14 sizes (5 cross-ply and 9 radials) from January 2013:

With the Michelin Anakee Wild, the Company will introduce an off-road version of the new tyre that is highly stylised in terms of both design and performance. Already certified by BMW, this radial tyre is designed for riders who love to take their bikes out on the trail. The tyre will be available later in 2013.
