You dont have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin racing tire technology. 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 tires 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. Rubber compound reaches operating temperature quickly. Incredible cornering grip. Impressive durability for a high-performance tire. Designed for high-performance sportbikes. Suitable for street or track use. MotoGP-derived rubber mix. Tread pattern covers less than 12% of the tire surface, for phenomenal cornering adhesion. Synthetic rubber mix derived from MotoGP tire technology, formulated to maintain consistent performance even at advanced stages of tire wear. 50.6 maximum lean angle in the dry, as measured at the Michelin test track. The Michelin Pilot Power ultra high-performance tire has a speed rating of W or up to 168 mph.
"The pilot powers increased my riding skill by 100% it is amazing what your bike will handle when the tires just plain stick."

"I have had these jeans for two years. I hit the ground at 75mph flat on butt and back and didn't even rip a thread. They are perfect in length once on bike. Extra thick where it counts (knees). Pockets are made a little tight so your stuff doesn't fall out."
