  • How can a non-road legal tyre like the new Michelin Enduro Xtrem be FIM compliant when all FIM approved tyres are supposed to be road legal?

    Well, the answer is that the tyre conforms to the FIM specifications on 13mm tread block height when new, but FIM guidelines do actually allow that if the competition does not include any public road open to members of the public then there is no need for road legality. The key point is the maximum 13mm tread block height when new. This is why the FIM have had no issues with approving brands of super soft extreme tyres, all of which are NHS non-road legal tyres, even for international extreme events. Just be aware that if your enduro event includes a section of open public road such as a UK BEC round, then, your bike and your tyres must be road legal and so the Enduro Medium remains the best tyre for you. Obviously, the Xtrem is super soft so should not be used in any situation that includes road/fire road work.

  • Why is Michelin Xtrem priced considerable higher?

    Due to the incredibly technical compound of the tyre and the lower numbers produced, it’s priced higher than its sister tyre, the Michelin Medium at £99.64 + delivery.
