Description

What we've been waiting for.

With years of research and development going into the Michelin Wild AM Tire we really shouldn't be so amazed by its ability to tackle the whole mountain, but after too many summers of being teased by tires that claim to be quiver killers, we were getting to be a bit jaded. Finally, a tire that stands up to the ultra-capable claims that surrounded its name, and handle the entire mountain, from XC flow, to loose and gravelly fire roads, and down the mountain like a wild banshee rallying into corners and sending it down rocky lines. The designers at Michelin took their sweet time with research and development on the Wild AM series, going through some 250 different tires at 150 different races, rolling underneath pro riders, and receiving constant feedback, and we're glad they did, because the proof is in the pedaling.

Employing Gum-x 3D dual-density tread, which claims to be stronger and grippier, you'll find a compound based on the Gum-X 2d, but with burlier lugs and higher blocks that are better suited for all-mountain riding. Enforcing maximum durability within the compound is Trail Shield technology- a 60 TPI casing constructed to provide puncture resistance from trail debris, rocks, and roots. This tough casing also lends its self to an emerging necessity for some riders: e-bike compatibility. With the increased weight of an e-bike it's essential to run an exceptionally durable tire to withstand the blows of rocks and roots with a heavier load. At 29-inchs this tire is happy to pair with your bike for a fast rolling all-mountain ride, and with 2.35in you'll find it happily fits on most modern mountain bikes, providing optimal tread contact for loose switchbacks and low enough rolling resistant to power up fire roads with ease.

  • The 2.35in all-mountain tire we've all been waiting for
  • Dual-density Gum-X 3d technology is stronger and grippier
  • Super tough Trail Shield 60 TPI casing provides puncture resistance
  • Developed with pro riders through rigorous testing

    mixed emotions

    Okay so several weeks later, I am here to edit. I finally caved and mounted these up with tubes. As anticipated, these tires/ tread pattern are great. They accelerate really fast, climb great, have a predictable slide, and they grip like a sombitch. I set a few PR's on my first ride with them. now that they had a tube in for a bit, I will try to go tubeless when I get a flat. oh yeah, I even had a piece of cactus stuck to the sidewall twice and I didn't flat. I really like Michelin tires. I have had a few types and they are ride really well. I am sold on the Wild AM and Force AM. they will likely be my go-to tires for my trail bikes. original post below I took off a Maxxis DHR2 TR and tried to mount this tire on the same RaceFace AR tubeless ready rim. It reminded me of when tubeless tires were first coming out. It would not seat on the rim. After losing half the sealant all over the garage and was ready to break shit, I put the Maxxis back on. I don't know what to do. Maybe they just won't work on this rim. I have a set of Michellin Force AM that mounted right up to a different rim.

    Grip for days

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    Review is on behalf of my wife who has been riding these tires. She is 150 lbs and a pretty aggressive rider. The Wild AM has been an excellent tire so far. The tread pattern kind of resembles a motocross front tire . The tread pattern and sticky rubber compound work together to offer superior grip in all conditions. Everything from hard pack to greasy mud I've been impressed by the grip. Most of my time was spent on dry and loose conditions where the tire excelled. Durability and puncture resistance were a concern since this is relatively light for an aggressive tire at 800 grams. After 4 months of abuse and countless jagged rocks scraping the sidewall this thing is still holding air. My favorite thing about this tire is how smoothly it transitions to the cornering knobs. Mounted on a 29mm internal width rim this tire has a pretty round shape which helps the transition to the side knobs feel seamless when you're leaning into corners.
