Michelin Pilot Power Rear Tires

You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. Michelin Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tire's surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike.

Features:

  • MotoGPderived rubber compound requires minimal warmup time
  • The softest rubber mix in its class for remarkable grip, yet maintains tire performance even at advanced stages of wear
  • Unprecedented lean angles: 50.6 degrees in the dry, 41.9 degrees in the wet
  • Rubber mix remains soft even at lower temperatures providing excellent grip from the start of your ride
  • Grooved area that's less than 12% of the tread pattern for phenomenal cornering adhesion
  • "These are the best street tires I've ever ridden in my life." Steve Atlas, Roadracing World

Great for my kind of riding
When I started looking for my first set of tires I'll bet I did what a lot of folks did....looked for a tire with excellent dry traction, wet traction, tread life and cost. There are none!

Because I ride for recreation and avoid the rain, focusing on dry traction made the selection easier. On a recommendation from a friend and after doing research, I selected the Pilot Power. They are grippy enough for my FZ6, corner predictably never did anything unexpected. Tread life seems to be typical for a single compound tire, so no surprises there.

I would not hesitate to buy them again or recommend them to my friends and fellow riders.

great tires..
I've never used anything else.. I'm pretty sure they use harry potter magic to create such amazing grip.. I got a little more than 9000 miles on my last rear tire..

Best tires that money can buy!
Having owned a set already, this is my review of the Michelin Pilot Power tires. As a daily commuter, I can honestly say that these tires inspire confidence. In wet or dry weather. Get a set. You'll thank me later.

Never worry about grip again!
If you're looking for serious amounts of grip in all conditions, look no further. It's sticky cold and gains heat quickly. On hot days, even with hard riding and max lean angles, the compound never overheats or becomes slippery. Cold weather doesn't affect them either and the tires stay warm. They're wonderfully responsive and translate road feel right into your seat. At speed, I've felt incredibly stable while watching other riders battle for grip. Wonderful under heavy braking and emergency maneuvers.

The biggest drawback is tread life. If you're a hard rider and push limits for lean and speed, expect to chew up your rear in 4,000 miles or less. Especially if you're routinely in triple-digit speeds.

Overall, this tire will never make you second-guess your traction and is a perfect buy for cost, value, and performance.

Michelin Pilot Power
Ran 3 sets of this tire on my 97 Monster 900. I can usually get around 8k miles on the rear before the belts start showing. My riding is about 90% highway and 10% spirited canyon carving. It starts to develop a flat spot on the middle at about 5k miles. I never lost traction in wet and dry with these tires and the lean angle is amazing. I would get these tires again.

Low price, quality. I didn't need a super-performance tire, just street ridding and Michelin has an excellent reputation. Have 3 different Michelin models on bikes in the family.

Hey I'm looking at getting a set of tires and I'm looking at the pilot power. I do a lot of commuting 200 miles just to and from work a week and hit the canyons on the weekends so im looking for something that will have a lot of life but it can trust in the canyons. I'm wondering what you guys recommend for me?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You'd do better with the road pilot 3 or 4 with your type of riding. Power pilot is a good tyre but wears quickly (5000mi)compared to the road pilot (12000mi). The RP series handles corners just fine.
Disclaimer: This is based on personal experience and a serious bias towards Michelin tires
Would I be ok to put a pilot power 2CT on front and regular pilot power on rear??
A shopper on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sure, I've run the same setup on my Sv650 track and street
What tire pressure are you running on the pilot powers? front and rear, street use...
A shopper on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am a spirited street rider and i run 37 up front and 36 in the rear. My friend runs 39 in his rear, and we have the same riding style. Great tires.
What is the stock tread depth with this tire?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I can answer this, as I just today put another Pilot Power on the rear.
Bike is still on the stands, (tire has not yet seen pavement)
Just put a digital caliper on it & the center treads are 5.62 - 5.74mm.

Sides are 4.55 - 4.59mm.
The pilot 2,3 and 4 have either hard,medium or soft coponds,can any one tell me for sure what the pilot power mono compond is?
