New MICHELIN BMX Racing Line Tires

  • The MICHELIN® Pilot SX tire and the MICHELIN Pilot SX Slick tire are available April 2021
  • These innovative new tires are designed to deliver ultimate performance for competitive and leisure riders

GREENVILLE, S.C., March 17, 2021Michelin launched the MICHELIN Pilot SX tire and the MICHELIN Pilot SX Slick tire, two new BMX tires in its racing line. These tires are designed for BMX riders who compete at the highest level and leisure riders who want ultimate performance.

“Using rubber compounds sourced from Michelin competition road bike tires, the MICHELIN Pilot SX tire features a tread pattern intended for racing on soft tracks or in cooler temperatures,” said Jennifer Toby, bicycle key account manager for Michelin North America. “The MICHELIN Pilot SX Slick tire includes a distinct and shallow tread pattern suitable for racing on hard tracks or in warmer temperatures.”

The MICHELIN Pilot SX Slick tire weighs 300 grams and features central tread and side blocks to help maintain momentum. The MICHELIN Pilot SX tire, which weighs 330 grams, was designed for extra grip while cornering, particularly on hard-packed or dusty terrain.

While all Michelin Tubeless Ready (TLR) bicycle tires can be used with inner tubes, the BMX Racing Line is TLR to reduce weight and improve rolling efficiency. Both models feature a robust three-layer 60 TPI casing to reduce damage, improve durability and accommodate tire pressures of up to five bars.

Beginning in April, the MICHELIN Pilot SX tire and the MICHELIN Pilot SX Slick tire will be available in 20x1.70 fitments.

Would like to talk to you about using these tires in our shows.

When will you design a tire 20x1.75 - 20x1.95 just for riding on pavement and concrete. No tricks may be jumps as high as 2-3 feet you know clearing the occasional curb or pot holes or jumping off of 5 step stairs. Looking for some thing that is concentrated for speed and turning corners on pavement and concrete (like a road frame tire). I don’t do track anymore but I still ride my BMX frame avidly. Tire would like to be like a road frame tire. Something that will grip the road at high speed when taking turns (cornering) but also maximizes straight away speed. But it has to hold up against the occasional bunny hop ect over curbs or pot holes. This tire is straight for exercising.

I’ve purchased the 1.7 sx slick. The tire OD is just to small for an adult rider. Need 1.75 or 1.8.

Yup, bring on some 24 x 2.0!!
