Michelin has announced the launch of its new tyre – MICHELIN Anakee Wild

Posted on


In markets around the world, from February 2016. Destined for big trail bikes, it is a radial tyre designed for dual purpose on and off-road use.

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.

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.

Michelin - A better way forward
