This is the Michelin Wild Grip'R 27.5" Tubeless Tire, with Advanced Reinforced casing, in Gum-X single 55A compound. The tubeless ready Wild Grip'R was developed to deliver traction in any condition, and take a beating doing it. Wild Grip'R features a versatile tread design for high performance in a wide range of conditions and riding styles, with large reinforced shoulder knobs for cornering prowess, and open medium height center knobs that provide reasonable rolling resistance and good mud shedding qualities. Combine this with the Advanced Reinforced casing and you have an incredibly versatile, durable, high traction tire that is a great option for all mountain fun.
Advanced Reinforced casing is ideal for severe conditions. These use an additional layer from bead to bead to help reduce the risk of pinch flats and provide an ideal balance of weight and strength.
Gum-X single 55A compound is recommended for rear tire applications and provides three distinct performance advantages; Grip, rolling resistance and tire longevity.
