Michelin this week introduced its new Michelin X One Line Energy D2 and X One XDS2 pre-mold retreads.
Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold, Michelin’s lowest rolling resistance heavy truck drive retread to date, is designed for the long haul market across the U.S. to optimize fuel efficiency.
“The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold’s new ultra-low rolling resistance levels are designed to exceed SmartWay® and CARB requirements,” said Pierluigi Cumo, B2B VP of Marketing for Michelin North America, Inc. “It’s compact tread design, with less flexibility in the tire tread between the tread surface and tire carcass, provides better energy conservation for greater fuel efficiency.”
The Michelin X One XDS2 Pre-Mold is designed to provide traction and durability to tackle harsh winters. Designed for extreme winter conditions to promote driver confidence and security, the Michelin X One XDS Pre-Mold tire capitalizes on weight savings of the new generation wide-based tire by adding a significant traction retread offer.
“The Michelin X One XDS2 Pre-Mold offers the same legendary snow traction as the Michelin XDS2+ Pre-Mold tire, with it’s potential weight savings, offering 365 lbs. more payload than dual tires,” Cumo said. “This tire is designed to take on the harshest winters and get drivers and their cargo to their destination safely.”
Optimized for traction in snow, the Michelin X One XDS2 recap is specifically made to tame the Canadian winters’ cold weather environments, and is available as a retread only.
