Michen Lithion Tire
The Lithion tire is Michelin's do everything well tire. With a kevlar bead, Silca based tread, 60 TPI high-density casing and a dual tread design for optimal grip in the corners and low rolling resistance on the straights, its an incredible tire for the price. The only main difference between the Lithion and Michelin's flagship, the Pro3 Race, is the amount of Silca in the rubber and the dual compound tread of the Pro3 Race. The Lithion is basically a rebadged Pro2, the previous flagship model. Thank you trickle down. The Lithion is will exceed the expectations of most elite cyclists.
The Lithion offers dramatic improvements over the original tyre with optimised grip and rolling resistance. With the look of a full-blown race tyre, the Lithion2 offers added durability for the cyclist who wants to put in some serious mileage. In real terms, all aspects of the tyre have improved over its predecessor and as it replaces the original Lithion and the Speedium2 its been positioned in terms of price between the two so the consumer gets more tyre for less money!
