Energy Saver+: Technology
More efficient tread compound, wider tread, reinforced structure… the Energy Saver+ comes with many technological innovations.

To improve grip, Michelin has increased the tyre’s footprint by 10% compared with its predecessor. A tread strip placed on the crown plies provides better heat dissipation and contributes to a lower rolling resistance.
The Energy Saver+ uses the Eco and Grip Compound, a new, patented rubber compound.
It has the particularity of being able to limit heat generation, not favourable for energy efficiency, without compromising conflicting qualities such as wear resistance.
To improve the dynamic potential of the Energy Saver+, Michelin engineers have concentrated their efforts on the tyre's structure and shoulders. As such, the tread design is reinforced by nylon strips to improve road holding. A layer extends to the shoulders and sidewall up to the plies to provide a stiffer tyre delivering a more uniform behaviour.
