Michelin North America announced the launch of the Michelin X Multi Energy Z2 tire for regional and super-regional applications, and the Michelin X Line Energy T2 tire for the long-haul and truckload market. The tires will available to order on April 1.
Michelin X Multi Energy Z2
The Michelin X Multi Energy Z2 tire is designed for less-than-truckload and multiple-stop delivery fleets that run 300 to 500 miles per day. This includes dry van, less-than-truckload, food and beverage and pickup and delivery fleets that require a long-lasting tire that performs well in medium scrub environments as well as on the highway, Michelin officials said in a press release.
This directional steer tire is designed to improve resistance to irregular wear and is engineered with a daul compound tread.
It is SmartWay-compliant and GHG2 approved into 2027.
The tire is available for fleets in the United States and Canada in two tire sizes: 11R22.5 LRG and 295/75R22.5 LRH.
Michelin X Line Energy T2
The X Line Energy T2, meets SmartWay requirements and is targeted for the dry van truckload and less-than-truckload, refrigerated, tanker and flatbed fleet segments.
The tread incorporates micro-sipes on all rib edges and a broad, optimized contact patch. Both features contribute to better wear. The dual-compound tread consists of a mileage top layer that controls tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear and a fuel-efficient bottom layer that minimizes internal casing temperatures for low rolling resistance, Michelin officials said. Curb guards and upper sidewall ribs also help fight sidewall damage.
The X Line Energy T2 is available in four sizes: 295/75R22.5 LRG 11R22.5 LRG, 285/75R24.5 LRG and 11R24.5LRH.
