Be the first to try out the new Michelin Commander II - for FREE!!! - October 11, 2011, 01:35 PM




Here's the deal:

Michelin is coming out with an new Touring/Cruiser tire called the Commander II. It goes on sale at the end of Jan '12

However, Iron Horse will have a full set at our disposal to test as of right now.

Got a touring bike or curiser that you will be riding for the next few weeks? Need a cool ass fresh set of tires? Wanna see your name in print?

If so, send me a PM and tell me why you deserve to test these tires for us.

Fitment examples:




"Independent tests carried out in the United States using a Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide® Classic prove it: a rear MICHELIN Commander II is capable of covering up to 40,000 kilometres*. That’s nearly twice the distance covered by its direct competitors, while the longevity of the front tire is even greater. The MICHELIN Commander II creates a new standard with regard to durability, yet without making any compromises in terms of wet weather grip, manoeuvrability or stability. This performance balance provides yet another eloquent illustration of Michelin’s research and development philosophy: no performance gain to be achieved on one front to the detriment of another.
In response to the major problem faced by custom motorcycle riders – tire life, notably at the rear –, the engineers at the Michelin Technology Centre at Ladoux, near Clermont-Ferrand (France), have developed a new rubber compound. The carcass of this new radial tire is associated with Silica Rain Technology (SRT) which integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread, while the MICHELIN Commander II's tread pattern has been designed to prevent all forms of uneven wear.

The exclusive architecture of the MICHELIN Commander II brings both manoeuvrability and stability. The tire’s more rigid, high-density carcass improves manoeuvrability, while the aramid fibre crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds.

Last but not least, the numerous longitudinal grooves of the new tire's tread pattern optimise water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip. "


Hope to find the right match right here on .net

Go on..persuade me and get your ride on with some hot new tires not yet on the market.

Please note: there can be only one. All submission remain property of me and will not be returned
