MICHELIN X® INCITY™ XZU casing from MICHELIN Durable Technologies

MICHELIN X® INCITY™ XZU casing from MICHELIN Durable Technologies

An ENERGY TM Flex casing adapted to urban conditions of use, helping to reduce rolling resistance because of lower operating temperatures.

The double-wave sipes
  Three dimensional sipes interlock in the tread blocks to improve their rigidity, increasing mileage potential whilst remaining flexible to develop grip.
