Michelin will debut BMX tire line

Published March 31, 2021

GREENVILLE, S.C. (BRAIN) — Michelin will unveil its BMX Racing Line in April with two tread patterns. The Pilot SX and Pilot SX Slick will use rubber compounds from Michelin's competition road bike tires.

The Pilot SX weights 330 grams and is designed for extra cornering grip, and works best on hard-packed or dusty terrain.
The Pilot SX Slick weighs 300 grams and features central tread and side blocks to enhance momentum.

While all Michelin Tubeless Ready tires can be used with inner tubes, the BMX Racing Line is TLR to reduce weight and improve rolling efficiency. Both models feature a three-layer 60 TPI casing to reduce damage, improve durability, and accommodate tire pressures of up to 72.5 psi (5 bar).

Both models will be available in 20x1.70 sizes. Michelin did not list MSRP for either tire.
