This month, we announced that we’re going to be stocking a range of the Michelin mtb tyres through our online shop. In this article, we explain a bit more about our decision to start selling these tyres and more information on Michelin’s mountain bike range.
Why we have chosen to stock Michelin mtb tyres…
Bringing together the Enduro Tyres brand with our love for mountain biking essentially seemed like a great fit for us! As the UK’s number one provider of Michelin off road products, there are many Enduro riders and team members at our HQ, who also enjoy mountain biking too, whether that’s as a hobby, competitively or professionally. Stocking Michelin mountain bike tyres was an obvious step to take.
With Michelin products taking up over 80% of our online store, selling Michelin mtb tyres was a decision we wanted to make and after some intense research on which products we would start with, the Michelin Enduro mtb tyres made it online. With the summer season of Enduro motocross events coming to a close, it seemed like the ideal time to welcome and dedicate our time to a new range. As one of only a few stockists in the UK of this particular range, we are hoping that our highly recommended customer service, teamed with the enthusiasm and passion we have for this sport will see this is as a winning product range for Enduro Tyres.
So, a bit more about the Michelin mtb tyres range we are stocking…
The range consists of 4 different Enduro mtb tyres; Wild, Mud, Force and Rock, some of which are available in both front and rear. As you can imagine by the names, they all fit a different riding a style, so make sure you choose the correct one for you.
The Michelin Wild tyres come in both front and rear, and is one of the most popular ‘all rounder’ options for Michelin mtb rider. These benefit from extreme strength and maximum grip, making it ideal for high performance mountain biking.
These all purpose Michelin mtb tyres are very versatile, meaning you can ride them on a variety of different downhill terrains, including hard, soft, wet and sand. The Michelin rubber compound within the tyres makes this the choice for expert riders.
As the name suggests, the Enduro Mud is the ideal choice to get you through the tricky muddy terrains you may face. You will always be in control thanks to the extra grip technology, with tall blocks allowing you to dig into the ground, this tyre is used by professionals all around the world.
Using Gravity Shield technology, the Enduro Force tyre gives optimum performance and grip on hard dry terrains. Available in rear, the tyre allows for safer braking on slopes and corners whilst going downhill.
This is the ideal tyre choice for those who are mainly riding hard, rocky terrains. Preparing you for those challenging downhill courses, the Rock R2 tyre has a Michelin rubber compound to allow you fantastic cornering and braking.
