Combining two technologies, Regenion and InfiniCoil, the new tyre is said to be suited for long-distance and regional coach operations.

The Michelin X Coach Z has a regenerating tread pattern. This comprises a tread design that changes as it wears, with grooves and water clearing channels opening up in the later stages of the tyre’s life.

The tyre structure has a 7.5 tonne load carrying capacity when fitted in single formation across the front steer axle.

The Michelin X Coach Z is available now in the 295/80 R 22.5 dimension and is suitable for regrooving and retreading.

Chris Smith, Michelin’s B2B Sales Director, says: “The X Coach Z is an amazingly versatile product that will maintain performance through all seasons. With its robust construction comes increased reliability and minimised downtime as well as reduced noise levels for drivers and passengers.”
