Fully Packed with Latest Advanced Technologies for Greater Longevity, Long-Lasting Grip, and Extended Safety – thus, Ensuring Customer Benefits in Terms of Productivity and Cost-Effectiveness
Michelin, the world’s leading tyre company, moves further into the truck tyre market with its launch of the MICHELIN X MULTI Z 2 – the latest addition to Michelin’s best-selling range in the East Asia and Australia region. Packed with latest revolutionary technologies, this 11R22.5 all-position tyre fitment for Regional and Highway operations offers market-leading longevity and improved performance that matters, which are key benefits for fleet operators.
Mr. Sebastien Henot, Commercial Director B2B, Michelin Siam Co., Ltd. revealed: “Thanks to the three core revolutionary technologies, the MICHELIN X MULTI Z 2 brings to our targeted customers uncompromised safety performance and helps meet their delivery timing and efficiency – thus, leading to increased productivity and improved cost-effectiveness for their businesses.”
The three major breakthrough technologies featured in MICHELIN X MULTI Z 2 are: REGENION, differently shaped grooves that ensure minimal tread deformation, which lowers rolling resistance and leads to less fuel consumption. Plus, the longitudinal grooves regenerate as the tyre wears, to deliver a high level of grip, traction throughout its lifecycle in all weather conditions, and lower wear rate – thus, providing greater longevity by more than 20%, compared to its predecessor MICHELIN X MULTI Z1;
INFINICOIL, reinforced tread plies with a continuously wound steel wire of up to 400 meters long, depending on tyre size, inside the casing. The high tensile steel wire increases tyre strength and thus optimizes the ground contact patch and delivers high mileage potential. This technology provides greater stability throughout the tyre’s lifetime, help reduce risk of sudden pressure loss for better vehicle control, extend mobility even when punctured, and improve uneven wear as it flattens the contact patch – thus, contributing to longer mileage and less unexpected breakdown incidences; and HT NYLON, strengthened bead endurance that helps not only reduce tyre damage linked to long-distance/high-speed usage and continuous usage cycle by 10%2, but also increase retreadability.
“I am convinced that the new MICHELIN X MULTI Z 2 shall stir the truck tyre markets across the region with its exceptional high performance and value to fleet customers,” concluded Mr. Henot.
In Thailand, the new MICHELIN X MULTI Z 2 is now available at Michelin’s authorized truck tyre dealers across the nation. For more information, please visit www.michelin.co.th.
