An even more durable tire

The Michelin Defender tires were already considered very durable tires. Yet, this newest generation was designed by the manufacturer in order to offer the most durable tire possible, by adding several innovations to its design, like:

  • The EverTread 2.0 rubber compound
  • The MaxTouch 2.0 technology
  • The 3-D Sipelock technology
  • A new sculptural design

The rubber compound has been improved for increased resistance to abrasion. The MaxTouch 2.0 technology also contributes to even out tension, which provides the tire with a more uniform contact surface with the road. This, in turn, reduces the tread wear considerably. 

Finally, sculptural improvements have also been made, which serve to optimize tread life. Amongst other things, the tire is more rigid and better suited for heavy vehicles or vehicles with a high maximum torque. The tread itself is also a little deeper, which also extends the life of the tire. 

Wear and tear tests have clearly shown that it is superior to its rivals: it lasted 40,000 km more than is three main competitors.

Optimized comfort on the road

With Michelin tires, comfort always takes center stage. A quiet ride is one of the elements that is very important to the manufacturer, and is brought forth with its PIANO acoustic technology. This technology allows to reduce vibrations inside the tire itself, thanks to a sculptural block design.

This translates into a quiet and smooth driving experience for the duration of the tire’s life.

The new Michelin tire has been thoroughly tested and compared to its competitors. When it comes to braking distances it has proven its worth, both on wet and dry roads.

This means it is very safe on the road, on top of offering short braking distances and low aquaplaning risks. It will allow you to reach your destination with perfect peace of mind.
