Michelin Introduced New Pro 4 Series

The Michelin Pro 4 series consists of four families of products engineered to meet the individual needs of the most exacting riders. The Pro 4 Endurance was designed to meet the needs of riders who place an emphasis on endurance. It has reinforced protection against punctures as well as cuts and combines high performance with outstanding durability.

The Pro 4’s dual-compound tread is designed to ensure exceptional resistance to wear and enhanced grip when leaning through corners. The Pro 4 Service Course delivers the best trade-off between sports performance and long tire life. It has a wider lateral band for optimal grip at all angles of lean  and new compounds incorporating new elastomers and silica for extra grip at the shoulders.

The Pro 4 Comp Service Course is comparable with the Service Course but more efficient thanks to the tire’s new 150TPI casing. This makes the casing 30 percent lighter, while the tire’s overall weight has been reduced by 10 percent compared with the former Pro 3 Race. Finally the Pro 4 S Comp Limited Service Course has an optimized contact patch thanks to the tire’s supple casing. The use of finer threads enables it to soak up irregularities in the road surface.

“The new package for the Pro 4 contains all the basic information for the consumer to make his choice while it also take limited space in the shops”, explains David Witters (photo), Michelin Key Account Manager for the Benelux.
