These Michelins aren’t easy to find but if you want a sturdy, sticky ‘secret weapon’ tyre, it’s worth the effort. The bar and block tread is a direct copy of Michelin’s super-popular Comp DH all-rounder.

The soft top layer is underpinned with a much stiffer base so mechanical grip is excellent in anything soft it can get its teeth into. The soft compound top layer also means it’s predictable on dry rock and loose gravel.

The chunky tread feels super-secure and works well at low pressures too, with a ‘reinforced’ option for butyl brutalisers. Either way, the price is good considering the technology involved, although too much skidding shortens the lifespan.
