Michelin Alpin 6 is a revolutionary winter tyre, which in the coming years can set standards for the seasonal tyre market. The manufacturer with its new tyre introduced to the market innovative EVERGRIP technology - enabling the use of the full model parameters from the first fitting to the total exploitation. The special construction reveals and expands the grooves along with the abrasion of subsequent rubber layers. Special channels maintain precise guidance and safety, even when all external layers wear out.
EVERGRIP technology is not the only modern solution introduced in the Michelin Alpin 6 . The tyre is distinguished primarily by its unique directional construction, which provides unprecedented performance when driving on a snow-covered road. It stands out especially when driving up steep, snowy roads. The tyre accelerates reliably and travels with 100% efficiency, even at a 12% gradient. At higher slopes it also remains unrivalled.
Multi-layered new-generation tread compound, The Traction Booster Compound offers the highest grip on snowy roads, maintaining full performance regardless of the tread wear. The traction features increase, along with the disposal of the internal groove, and the mixture does not thicken and does not stiffen regardless the conditions.
