Michelin Pilot Super Sport Description
Born from endurance racing, MICHELIN® Pilot®
Super Sport gives you the exhilaration of driving the best performing
street tire in the world.
UP TO 12% BETTER HANDLING THAN LEADING COMPETITOR - Inspired by the same engineering that has powered 13 consecutive victories at 24hours of Le Mans
UP TO 2X LONGER LASTING THAN LEADING COMPETITORS Optimized through technology of variable contact patch 2.0 and TWARON® belt package for long even wear.
BETTER BRAKING THAN LEADING COMPETITOR
Bi-compound delivers excellent dry braking using Le Mans-inspired
compound on outer shoulder and latest generation of wet-oriented
elastomer on the inner portion of the tread.
The best dry handling • N°1 in dry handling(2)
• The fastest tyre(3) (4)Developed with Porsche, BMW M and Ferrari THE TWARON® BELT • At very high speed, The Twaron® belt ensures greater stability.
• Its variable tension grips the centre of the tread more tightly than the shoulders.
Centrifugal force is thus better controlled and forces are distributed more evenly. DUAL-COMPOUND TECHNOLOGY • A novel distribution of two different rubber compounds between the outer and inner sides of the tread.
• Outer side: a novel carbon black-reinforced elastomer derived directly from the Le Mans 24 Hour Race.
The result: extreme endurance even under the tightest cornering.
Inner side: the latest generation of elastomers with exceptional wet
grip to mould themselves to the slightest irregularities in the road
surface and break the film of water. VARIABLE CONTACT PATCH 2.0
Whether you’re accelerating flat out in a straight line or cornering at high speed, you still get optimum grip.
When cornering, the shape of the contact patch changes but the amount
of rubber in contact with the road surface stays the same.
MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport has benefited from the latest digital
simulation software used in the aeronautics and automobile industries.
These state-of-the-art tools have enabled the forces and temperatures to be more evenly distributed over the contact patch.
