MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport Tire Innovation: Ceinture Twaron®

Twaron provides the MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport tire with superior high-speed stability. It's a high-density fiber used in everything from cutting-edge sporting equipment to aeronautics, even protective military gear and of course, motorsports. Twaron's high grip-resistance creates up to 12% better handling and delivers tire wear life that is 2 times longer than leading competitors. Thanks to its variable tension, you can see the belt tightens the tread more in the center than the shoulders. As a result, centrifugal force is more effectively overcome and stress is more evenly distributed. The MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport Tire will be available in April 2011. Go to for more details.
