Versatility for versatile trails.

Modern mountain bike tires have to be versatile, as it's increasingly difficult and expensive to switch tires for different conditions. To bridge the elusive gap between buff singletrack, greasy trails, and rocky terrain, the 29-in Wild Grip'r Tire relies on a new tread design and Michelin's respected rubber expertise.

A low-profile, high-durometer tire equals fast-paced fun on hard packed trails. Inversely, if that tire finds itself in mud, deft handling skills are required to keep the rubber-side down. The slightly elongated center knobs that are found on this Wild Grip'r 29er provide efficiency and control by resisting deflection under acceleration and braking on packed dirt. Yet, they're space well enough to still bite and shed on the opposite end of the spectrum.

That's one way that the Wild Grip'r covers two extremes, and another is its transition knobs. These intermediate blocks are siped and variable, so they conform to irregular terrain. Meanwhile, reinforced side lugs deform less and give a positive indication of traction limits. And like the center knobs, these are all spaced to prevent traction loss due to buildup.

Optimized tread is only part of the tire equation, and as aforementioned, Michelin chose a compound specific to this multi-purpose tire. This engineered rubber composite has a durometer of 63a, which marginally favors hard packed trails over grip for increased longevity. The casing is a single ply with a TPI count of 60 in order to increase durability without weighing things down.

The Michelin Wild Grip'r 29in Tire has a folding Aramid bead and is available in a 29x2.25-inch size. Please note that this tire is tubeless-ready, but it does not include either tire sealant or rim tape.

awww yeahhh

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I technically have the 27.5 inch version of these, but I think they're more the less the same product.. I swapped my front tire to the Grip'r from the Maxxis High Roller after a very dry and dusty summer here in the Wasatch, complete with plenty of unexpected wash-outs while cornering with those. I've only been riding with the Grip'r for a few weeks - but during that time I've raced a dry/dusty/blown-out Enduro, climbed quite a bit, AND experienced some amaaazing hero dirt (thanks rain!) I've been amazed by how far I've been able to lean my bike over without ending up on the ground, and how easily this tire has been able to find traction on some sketchy lines. The lug pattern goes almost to the rim on these and if I've sacrificed any climbing ability, I can't really tell. Basically 5 stars and highly recommended if you enjoy sticking to the dirt!

awww yeahhh

I bought these tires to go on my wife's bike and she absolutely loves them. They have big meaty lugs to provide tons of traction yet don't seem to suffer the usual penalty of high rolling resistance.

They set up tubeless pretty easily , just not quite easily enough to be done with a floor pump.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are meaty and I love em! tons of tread = climbing and stopping power = happy Tyson.
