Recently, Michelin introduced the Michelin X Multi T2 to its tyre portfolio.
Its latest truck tyre is aimed at hauliers looking for increased safety with cost optimisation and maximum productivity. The robust tyre offers an excellent lifespan as it needs to be changed less frequently and is also lighter due to the use of fewer materials – making it more environmentally friendly.
Michelin Malaysia’s Commercial Director for B2B, Timothy Mitchell said, “The new X Multi T2 tyre is an ideal solution for clients seeking both safety and security for drivers and their goods as well as the optimisation of costs and productivity. Developed within the framework of the ‘Performance and Safety Made to Last’ concept, this tyre offers several much sought-after advantages that our clients want thanks to the combination of multiple Michelin technologies in a single offer. It is also kinder to the environment.”
To meet these requirements, the X Multi T2 range features many improvements compared to its predecessor – the Michelin X Multi T. With the reinforced crown plies, the new tyre has improved resistance against road hazards by 26 per cent. The Michelin Regenion technology allows for a reduced mileage cost, a lifespan increased by 15 per cent and extended grip performance plus greater traction in all weather conditions.
With a new tyre tread design, the X Multi T2 has increased rigidity when cornering, with a 10 per cent improvement in overall stability to offer the driver greater safety. Lastly, a new rubber mixture offers a 10 per cent improvement in protection against aggression. These new materials reduce damage and also allow for better retreading capabilities, as well as increased mileage with less irregular rubber wear on the tread.
Kinder to the environment while being more robust, the new X Multi T2 tyre uses less material. Therefore it weighs 1.7 kilograms less than its predecessor while offering greater energy efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. All these top-of-the-range elements are the result of innovative and patented technologies.
The X Multi T2 tyre is now available in dimension 11R22.5 at all Michelin authorised truck and trailer tyre dealers nationwide.
