MICHELIN LAUNCHES NEW DH 22 & DH 16 RACING LINE BICYCLE TIRES FOR THOSE WITH A PASSION FOR WINNING

  • New Magi-X rubber compound for additional grip
  • New, stylish look that’s easy to ship thanks to a foldable bead
  • A wider choice of sizes for the growing popularity of downhill racing

 

GREENVILLE, S.C., May 1, 2024 – Building on the success and experience with partner teams in the UCI Downhill World Cup, Michelin is launching the new Michelin DH 22 and DH 16 Racing Line tires that will feature Michelin’s latest bicycle tire technologies.

“Being able to launch new downhill racing lines while sharing the exciting news on partnering with the UCI Downhill World Cup is a dream scenario,” said Richard Kornacki, director of sales for recreational brands at Michelin North America, Inc. “With the most popular sizes offered and the latest Michelin technologies available, competitors who want success can look no further than the new Michelin DH Racing lines.”

Boosting tire performance to new heights with the help of the latest DH Racing Line tires, riders will be able to pick a line and execute their run with confidence. The new Michelin DH 22 tire features updates from the previous version, resulting in a DH tire that’s been completely optimized for mixed-soft terrain. The new Michelin DH 16 includes an all-new tread pattern in the Michelin DH tire lineup, inspired by the original Michelin Comp 16 tire, intended to boost speed on mixed-hard terrain. The Michelin DH 22 and DH 16 also boast the new Michelin Magi-X compound, which provides extra grip at low temperatures[1].

Recognizing riders continue to push the limits of their equipment in the DH segment, the new Michelin DH 22 and DH 16 casing provides optimal puncture and pinch protection that was specifically developed[2] for UCI World Cup riders and freeride legends.
