MICHELIN launches the new updated X® MULTI™ regional tyre range!

Michelin announces the launch of the next generation of its most popular heavy truck tyre range for short to medium distance transport companies; the MICHELIN X® MULTI™ regional tyre. Official testing has shown the next-generation fitments deliver 15 to 20 per cent more mileage than the current MICHELIN X® MultiWay ™ 3D series, at no extra cost.

Designed to blend the lowest cost per kilometre with outstanding grip in all weather conditions – from the first millimetre of tread to the last – the new tyres will initially be available from April in four key fitments: 315/70 R 22.5 all-position and drive tyres and 385/55 R 22.5 steer and trailer tyres. The X® MULTI™ range will be expanded with the launch of 295/60 R 22.5 and 315/60 R 22.5 X® MULTI™ D in September 2017 and then the 315/70 R 22.5 X® MULTI™ D Remix early in 2018.

Innovation is at the heart of Michelin’s product development and this new range of tyres incorporates the latest technologies of REGENION™, INFINICOIL™, POWERCOIL™ and CARBION ™, which all help deliver extra value and performance to hauliers. Fleet and tyre management will also be simplified as a result of an RFID chip integrated into each MICHELIN X® MULTI™ tyre. As ‘connected tyres’ this new range will offer access to a number of digital services, enabling individual tyre identification, improved fleet and stock management, and improved traceability of operations.

  • POWERCOIL™
    technology is a new generation of lighter, yet more robust steel cables which means that the tyre is lighter but with no loss of strength or endurance.
  • INFINICOIL™
    is a continuous steel wire – which can be as long as 400 metres – wrapped around the tyre to provide it with greater stability throughout its lifetime, giving the tyre more robustness and durability.
  • REGENION™
    désigne un ensemble d’éléments de sculpture qui s’auto-régénèrent kilomètre après kilomètre, grâce à des techniques d’impression 3D métal, pour offrir de hauts niveaux d’adhérence tout au long de la vie du pneu, quelles que soient les conditions.
  • CARBION™
    is a material resulting from an innovative mixing process in which certain tread components are mixed when in a liquid state, resulting in a more uniform material. This material increases the mileage performance of the tyre and improves its rolling resistance to allow fuel savings.

The new MICHELIN X® MULTI™ regional tyres will offer outstanding grip and greatly improved longevity, and as they are the same cost as the previous range, underline Michelin’s commitment to ensuring the lowest total cost of ownership for our customers.

Like all of Michelin’s heavy truck tyres, the MICHELIN X® MULTI™ range is constructed using Michelin’s renowned high-quality casing which means it can be regrooved and is retreadable using the MICHELIN REMIX® process. This offers operators a way to further save costs by getting the full use of the tyre in terms of the available tread rubber and the casing – both of which help improve the overall environmental performance of the tyre.
