Rubber's characteristics give the tire different performances.
Rubbers can be either Mono-Compound or Bi-Compound.

Bi-Compound: Invented by Michelin in 1995, this is a mix of two rubber compounds on the tread providing central rolling efficiency and lateral grip (e.g. MICHELIN Power Endurance which combines Grip Compound and X-Miles Compound).

Casings


A tire’s casing is made up of threads, the thickness of which varies according to the tire range, makes it robust, flexible, efficient and lightweight. The more threads there are, the finer they are, making the tire lighter. On the contrary, the less threads there are, the bigger they are, making the tire stronger.
TPI (Threads Per Inch) refers to the density of threads per inch.

Reinforcements

Reinforcements made to improve tire strength.

cjdbj68mh0lel4pmuozljojkt aramidprotek full

Reinforcement in the tire casing to provide strength at the crown and minimize punctures. Aramid is stronger than traditional materials and is much more cut resistant and is the material used for manufacturing  body armor.

cjdbjep6b0lkv4pmu7jp41y2k aramidprotek full

cjdbjep6b0lkv4pmu7jp41y2k aramidprotek full

High density reinforcement in the tire casing to provide strength at the crown and minimize punctures. Aramid is stronger than traditional materials and is much more cut resistant  and is the material used for manufacturing  body armor.

cjdbjfrmi0lm44pmuaav2o98q bead2beadprotek full

cjdbjfrmi0lm44pmuaav2o98q bead2beadprotek full

High-density cross-laid reinforcement protecting the whole tire casing. The crown and sidewalls are reinforced to provide maximum protection and durability (Range: MICHELIN Power Gravel, MICHELIN Pro 4, MICHELIN Krylion2).
