    Fast-rolling without sacrificing durability.

    Designed for the rigors of competitive enduro racing, the Michelin Force AM 29in Tire fulfills the needs of riders thrashing their tires across demanding terrain with hard-packed dirt littered with jarring rocks and roots. It's a bit faster rolling than many tires in the "all-mountain" category, making it ideally suited for running in the rear with a slightly more aggressive tire up front. The Trail Shield casing is ruggedly reinforced from sidewall slashes and abrasive punctures on notoriously technical trails, courtesy of its high-density protection layer.

    Michelin's GumX3D compound strategically employs three rubber compounds for the best in fast-rolling efficiency, tread longevity, and tenacious cornering grip. As expected, the center features the hardest rubber compound for faster rolling and greater tread longevity. The rubber compounds get softer as you work towards the shoulder knobs for tons of cornering grip when you're laying into turns and carving around sweeping berms.

    • All-mountain tire with fast-rolling tread pattern
    • Trail Shield casing features high-density reinforcement
    • GumX3D compound balances rolling speed with cornering grip
    • Tubeless-ready for gaining bump compliance and traction
    • Item #MIC005N

    I pretty much hate these tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These tires are much too hard to set up tubeless. I want to return them, but even though they haven’t been ridden, they are so covered in orangeseel at this point that I’m sure I can’t return them. I’ve wasted hours of time and at least $10 worth of sealant trying to get them to work, but now I’ll need to use them with tubes. Don’t buy these to use tubeless.

    TNR: Tubeless Not Ready

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

    These are incredibly difficult to mount tubeless, compared to Maxxis. I’ve mounted four Maxxis tires without any problems. After two hours and a lot of Orange Seal, I have only one of the Michelin’s holding air. I’ll definitely pack a tube the first couple of times I try these in the woods. The beads just don’t hook up.
