A combination of technologies for better grip on damp surfaces and long-lasting tyres.
An innovative tread pattern for better grip on wet surfaces
MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 tyres have innovative sipes, born out of our X-Sipe Technology, providing better grip on wet surfaces for added safety. And they look pretty different too!
Long-lasting tyres thanks to their MICHELIN bi-compound 2CT technology, which ensures the tyre wears in a uniform way and that its performance qualities last for longer. YAMAHA chose them as Original Equipment for their MT07 model.
XST sipe technology
Our XST sipe technology improves tyre performance and grip in the wet. It enables riders to relax in rainy weather as well as on slippery areas in the dry (puddles, paving stones, damp areas under tree cover )

04.10.2015 from Mike All good so far
03.07.2015 from Mark Duncan Excellent tyres. Have them fitted to my ER6 front and rear. Used everyday all through Scottish Winter. Wet performance is excellent, not once let go on me unexpectedly. They have given me a lot note confidence in my machine. I won't fit anything else to my commuter or touring bikes. Seem to be wearing well considering the riding I do.
25.03.2015 from H. R. Roberts Makes the ride very comfortable
05.02.2015 from Nicstrom Simply the best tyre used so far
The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.
Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68 production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth-moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.
Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance
In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of "MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.
To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from 3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires' use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them better suited to the needs of real drivers.
