The pattern of the front tire is to enhance cornering and handling. The central groove is for better draining and reducing the possibility of hydroplaning. The V-shaped lug will guide the water to the center and decrease the water splash. The main task of the rear tire is stability, comfort and longer endurance. The center rib will efficiently improve not only the comfort but also stable handling. Moreover, the wider TDW will effectively lengthen tire duration. The pattern on 2 wings will also increase the performance of cornering and water draining.
Front Tire: The camber angle of the front tire will be large due to cornering. Therefore, 40% of the cap tread at the shoulders, which is the contact patch on the ground while cornering, is made of the softer compound with better gripping. The central part of the tread is for straight riding. Harder rubber is used to enhance the endurance. Rear Tire: Although the camber is smaller on rear tire, the contact patch is wide due to the flatter profile. Therefore, better gripping compound is applied evenly on the both sides of the tread, respectively taking 40% of the cap. As for the rest 20% in the central part, harder rubber is to generate more power against the surface of roads.
JLSB (Jointless Space Belt) is put in use on Roadiac WF-1. Nankang applies “Single Steel Winding” technology on Roadiac. Comparing aramid or other fibers, steel belt could provide stronger stability, handling, stiffness, and temperature control. Roadiac is also less possible to be pierced and much safer.

The WF-2 is designed for high performance motorcycles with an improved contact patch and stiffer casing design to increase cornering stability and grip.
The V-shape pattern offers excellent rigidity at high speed even at high lean angles as well as improving wet grip. The wider shoulder grooves refine the performance in high lean angles, increasing the turn in abilities. The new semi-slick compound needs a shorter warm up time to allow maximum performance from the minute you set off.
The WF-2 utilizes a dual compound formula with the centre tread aimed at increasing stability, comfort and longevity whilst the shoulder is designed to offer ultimate grip and ride confidence.
The WF-2 has improved compound proportion to offer the maximum traction at all lean angles as well as an improved construction to ensure safety, stability and braking at all speeds. This new design redefines safety, stability, and braking abilities at all speeds, offering maximum confidence whilst riding.
Supersports street tire, also at home on the race track.
0° steel-belted construction, front and rear, guarantees excellent stability at high speeds. Good control when braking for corners. Well defined and wide breakaway characteristics at maximum lean angle. Cutting-edge design for the tread pattern, perfect for modern sports bikes. MultiGrip Technology ensures high mileage, for endurance racing or track days.
Zero degree steel-belted tire, with the performance of a sports tire and the longevity of a touring tire.
Modern compound for the contact patch delivers excellent grip on wet and dry roads for sports and all-year-round touring riders. Very high degree off riding comfort and big safety reserves in the breakaway phase thanks to the carcass construction‘s 0° technology. Light handling and balanced behavior under varying conditions, thanks to the MCD (Multi Curvature Design) of the tire profile.
A different compound between the front and rear tyre for the best trajectory precision and stability, assures outstanding grip and good feeling to better face every situation and every angle of lean. The combination of front and rear contour has been engineered to offer a perfect behaviour of the bike in every condition thanks to CMT (Contour Modelling Technology). The result is increased stability and speed, entering into corners with high confidence. The linearity when leaning assures precision and stability supporting full power acceleration out of corners.
MICHELIN Pilot Street Radial: Unleash the performance of your bike
At last, there is a radial structure for 250 cc’s and over which combines good overall performance with optimal handleability over time². It comes out top of its category¹ for grip in the wet ensuring a safer ride and its sporty look is set to be a hit.
Radial technology available for 250 cc’s and over
Radial architecture gives incomparable stability and handleability. The sidewalls and tread are independent and therefore have specific characteristics: the sidewalls are flexible and offer greater comfort at high speed by cushioning road surface deformation. The tread, which is in contact with the ground, enables the tyre to grip the road. Its contact area is not as long as a bias tyre but wider and offers greater grip when cornering sharply on bends.
The best grip on wet roads in its category.¹
The grip on wet roads has been recognized by the independent DEKRA Test Centre as being the best in its category¹. The 100% silica rubber compound makes all the difference on wet roads, an essential factor for sporty use in complete safety.
A tyre that lasts
Its excellent longevity² has been tested in Brazil by the independent organism, the MAUA Institute of Technology, in comparison with our competitors. The pressure in a radial tyre contact area is more evenly distributed which means that wear is ultimately more uniform with longer lasting high performance.
An attractive, sporty look.
A tyre directly inspired by the Sport Touring radial ranges with a tread based on the MICHELIN Pilot Road 2 tyre: give your bike a smart, sporty look!
