Extreme safety, reliability, reduced braking distances, and all while remaining environmentally friendly, this tyre has everything to make it Michelin's "year round" star. Specially designed for city cars, the Energy tyre has 25% more endurance, thanks to its futuristic manufacturing method. Silica elements in the tread demonstrate that Michelin designed this model while trying to reduce fuel consumption in large towns. Actually, this French manufacturer has brought together new technologies in the construction of its Energy tyres, as evidenced by comfortable and sure-footed driving, even on snowy roads. It also lends itself well to speed, thanks to its versatility which makes it easy to control.
With more than one hundred awards in the Formula 1 races and two victories of the constructers' world championship, Michelin is beyond any doubt one of the most praised and prized manufacturers in the world. One may understand better why Michelin tires are so respected all over the world, if we just sum up the world speed record, with an average of 400km/hour, during the F1 tests, successfully passed with BAR Honda in 2006. The French tires have won the consumers' trust in more than 170 countries, because Michelin's signature comes along with safety, longevity, security and boldness, in all respect of the environment. Dedicated to innovation, the Michelin engineers don't leave anything unchecked when they build a tire. Their products are known for their superb grip in the corners, under diificult aquaplaning situations, but also for their resistance to the highest temperatures. For more than a century, the French constructer, headquartered in Clermont Ferrand has created over 3500 tire models and has been mounted on the most famous car brands.
