Michelin speaks up
The French tyre giant supplies tyres for almost everything with wheels - from Formula 1 to the (once upon a time) supersonic Concorde to gravel bikes. Gravel tyres are what we're most interested in in this article. Michelin has two types of tyres in its range - the Power Gravel and the Power Adventure.
Michelin Power Gravel
The Power Gravel is a gravel bike tyre perfect for more challenging terrain. Thanks to "Bead to Bead" technology, this tyre offers increased puncture protection. The tyre compound, which Michelin calls Magi-X, provides a long life even in the most demanding conditions. But do not worry; the Power Gravel rolls tremendously and always delivers maximum cornering confidence and excellent grip.
These gravel tyres are available in 33-47mm widths and several tyre sidewall colours.
Michelin Power Adventure
The Power Adventure gravel tyre is ideal for those who like to explore new places on paved but less-than-perfect roads. With a slick pattern in the middle of the tread, the Power Adventure rolls excellently but also performs great in corners thanks to the distinctive sidewall pattern.
The Power Adventure has high puncture resistance thanks to Bead to Bead technology and 3x100 TPI fibre density. This makes the tire lightweight, has excellent rolling performance and is very durable at the same time. The Power Adventure is available in 30, 36, 42 and 48 mm widths in two compounds.
