DSCN2719Michelin unveiled its new Power Pure at Indy. It uses Michelin’s 2CT dual-compound construction and is claimed to be 10% lighter than tires from its competitors.

According to Michelin, Light Tire Technology reduces unsprung weight and rotating mass, which benefits acceleration, braking and grip. Michelin also says the Power Pure features wider 2CT shoulders for improved cornering grip and improved lateral rigidity for cornering stability. These are lofty claims, but hopefully we can test it for ourselves to find out.
