Exceptional grip provided by IntelliSipe technology maximizes the number of sipes within the tire, which allows you to brake
confidently when you need to most for greater peace of mind in stressful driving situations.
Ultimate Tread Life
MaxTouch Construction combined with the interlocking action of Michelin's breakthrough IntelliSipe technology
delivers impressively long wear life by providing exceptional tread block rigidity while optimizing the tire's contact
with the road during acceleration, braking and cornering.
The interlocking action of IntelliSipe technology creates a more rigid tread block, which allows for a reduced tread depth that
leads to lower rolling resistance ? so you can save fuel without sacrificing safety or longevity.
IntelliSipe Technology Enhances Performance in 3 Ways:
1. Helps stabilize the tread block during acceleration, braking and cornering.
2. Increases the number of sipes on the tread, resulting in greater grip for confident braking.
3. Features an interlocking action that creates a more rigid tread block and reduces tread depth without sacrificing safety, longevity or fuel efficiency.
This unique tire shape and carcass design more evenly distributes the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering throughout the contact patch ? maximizing wear life.
MAXTouch Construction is one of the many proprietary Michelin technologies that contributes to making tires like the new Michelin® Defender among the safest,
longest-lasting and most fuel-efficient tires on the road.
