Collin Edwards has beeb buissy. Between testing his new GP bike and fulfilling sponsor whims, he's been developing Michelin's new dual compound tyres.
19.01.2007 - The new Sports touring tyre from Michelin "Pilot Road 2"
This is Michelin’s all-new Pilot Road 2 sports-touring tyre which they claim is the best tyre in its class.
The Pilot Road 2 use dual compound technology developed from MotoGP tyres to give a harder wearing centre with softer, grippier sides for improved cornering.
The tyres were tested for Michelin against leading competitor’s tyres for the French equivalent of the MIRA testing facility (the Centre D’Essais Routiers Mecaniques, or CERM), and the new Michelins came out top for wet weather grip and durability, all though Michelin haven’t said how they compare in the dry.
