The Road 5 will vary from the Pilot Road 4 series in a number of ways, but most specifically in its ability to shed water from the tyre and road surface as the tyre wears. Thanks to the XST siping technology that Michelin introduced with the Pilot Road 3, the tires have a great ability to evacuate water from the tire surface ensuring the rubber connects to the road. As the tire wears down, the grooves in the tyres decrease in volume and thus are less effective in evacuating water.
The new Road 5 sipes, now called XST Evo, has been adapted from Michelin’s automotive division. The technology is borrowed from Michelin’s Evergrip tread design which was first introduced in the MICHELIN Premier A/S tyre in 2014.
The combination of three technologies helped the MICHELIN ROAD 5 to deliver the best wet-weather grip in a recent in-house comparison with the new tyre’s five main rivals.
To achieve this level of performance, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 benefits from:
Latest-generation rubber compounds,

Always choose a tyre that best suits its purpose. If you are riding all year round, a sports or sports-touring tyre is recommended. They are designed to give excellent grip in a wide range of weather conditions. Racetrack orientated tyres may be road legal and “soft” in compound, but they only offer high levels of grip when they have reached high operating temperatures. In the interest of safety always fit the same make on the front and rear. Passionate about the tyres we sell, we can give advice and guidance.
