LAVAL, Que. — Michelin’s X One XDN2 pre-mold retread, introduced to the US market at the Mid-America Trucking Show last month, is now available in Canada, the company announced.
The retread is geared towards fleets and owner/operators looking for the fuel and weight savings of a wide-base single with the traction of a lug-style tread.
“Michelin X One wide single tires continue to offer huge benefits to the trucking industry,” said Frederic Ollendorff, segment product manager, truck tires, Michelin Canada. “The Michelin X One XDN2 Pre-Mold retread combined with the weight and fuel savings of the Michelin X One casing offers even better grip and fuel efficiency.”
The all-weather drive tread design delivers “superior traction and optimized mileage,” according to the company. It features Matrix Siping Technology for excellent traction on dry and slippery surfaces. The three-dimensional sipes lock together for the stability normally associated with solid tread blocks, the company says.
The X One XDN2 Pre-Mold retread is only available on Michelin X One casings and qualifies for the company’s Michelin on Michelin guarantee, which promises customers 30% more mileage than competitive retreads while also guaranteeing a second trailer retread on a Michelin casing.
