|MICHELIN ROLLS OUT ANAKEE WILD
February 26 2016.
Michelin has announced the launch of its new tyre, the MICHELIN Anakee Wild, in markets around the world. Destined for big trail bikes, it is a radial tyre designed for dual purpose on and off-road use.
Currently available in four radial sizes, including those equipping the ‘flagship’ bike in this category, the BMW R 1200 GS, the range of available sizes for this tyre will be completed by three additional sizes during the year, thus covering most of the trail bikes available on the market:
3 front sizes:
110/80 R 19 (available within the 1st four months of 2016)
120/70 R 19 (available within the 1st four months of 2016)
90/90 - 21
4 rear sizes:
150/70 R 17 (available within the 1st four months of 2016)
170/60 R 17 (available within the 1st four months of 2016)
130/80 - 17
140/80 - 17
The new MICHELIN Anakee Wild is aimed at bikers who seek adventure, either solo or with a passenger, who set out on treks, whether alone or in groups, for a weekend or longer, those for whom biking means expeditions, experiencing and discovering. It is aimed at riders who want to break away from paved roads and fully exploit the potential of bikes designed both for roads as well as the most uneven, sandy, stony and muddy tracks. The new MICHELIN Anakee Wild tyre was thus designed to adapt to all terrain types and situations, as well as the most varied climates. In short it is a ‘multi-purpose’ tyre that demonstrates its performance according to the conditions it is subjected to.
The new MICHELIN Anakee Wild tyre ensures:
- Excellent mileage and resistance to overheating and wear. This is due to the new tread composition and optimised tread depth.
- On-road stability and comfort. This is due to the radial technology, available for the first time in the world on four different sizes of knobbly tyres.
