Design & Technology

MICHELIN Primacy HP tyre


1. Supple yet rigid tyre design (Excellent Longevity and Handling)

A supple structure to ensure that the MICHELIN Primacy HP puts as much rubber in contact with the road as possible, along with a rigid tread pattern design, providing long tread life, better handling and braking in the wet.

2. Elasto Sport Compound (Superiror Grip and Braking) An innovative tread 

compound derived from motorsport, combining for better road holding and braking on wet roads.

3. ASM optimization (Outstanding performances without compromise)

A new research process integrating three essential mechanisms used to balance a tyre's performance, known as ASM: Architecture (structure), Sculpture (tread pattern) and Materials. The result is an unprecedented balance of performances without compromise.
