Michelin Pro Race 3 Road Tire
Already proven in real world Pro Tour tests (including the Tour de France), the new Pro3 tire range will feature lighter weights, better efficiency and up to 27% more grip than the Pro models they replace. In Michelin's own testing, we found a 3 mph increase in maximum speed when turning on a 25 meter radius corner. Look for them in the Spring of 2008.
Size: 700 x 23
ESC: Extra Supple Casinghighly flexible, cross-ply carcass with 127 TPI (420 threads/dmi) cord density, a technology used in top-of-the-line tires that helps them achieve the highest levels of performance.
HDPP: High Density Puncture Protector - strong, lightweight, interwoven anti-puncture reinforcement inserted under the center tread.
HPRS: High Protect Rim System Protective strip that protects the bead area against wear from the rim. The HPRS is used on all flexible-bead Michelin's tires.
Skinwalls: Lightweight skinwalls, with casing plies surrounded by a thin coat of rubber.
DC:Dual Compound technology for road tires, this includes two co-extruded compounds with one compound (with enhanced grip) on the shoulders and a second (with lower rolling resistance) in the center.
SE: Silica Energy - Rubber mix reinforced with 100% silica for an optimized balance between rolling resistance and grip. Silica also helps shed mud in off-road applications.
