Michelin Road 5 GT Tires

The Road 5 is a premium all-purpose tire designed for heavier touring bikes that actually maintains traction in wet conditions as the tire wears. This wet weather confidence has advanced inverted-pyramid Michelin XST Evo siping to thank. In a normal continuous-profile extruded cut sipe, the water carrying ability of a tire decreases as it wears down since the volume of the sipe decreases. With Michelin XST Evo siping, the tread cuts actually flare outward towards the center of the tire, giving a well-worn tire the same water carrying capacity of a brand new tire.

Wet weather confidence is certainly the main act of the Road 5 but this IS a dual compound sport / sport touring tire from Michelin. Keen eyes will notice the uninterrupted expanses of rubber on the edges of the tire. These are the softer 2CT and 2CT+ zones of the front and rear tires respectively. As you lean the bike over, your grip effectively increases as you enter into these zones.

From the increased braking and cornering performance of the Road 5 in wet conditions to the full-lean confidence of the tire in dry conditions, the Michelin Road 5 is a superb sport tire for those who ride rain or shine. 

Features:

  • Stiffer carcass to better support heavier touring and sport-touring bikes
  • Patented Michelin XST Evo siping design
  • Patented ACT+ casing technology
  • 2CT dual compound front tire composition
  • 2CT+ dual compound rear tire composition
