The Michelin Alpin 5 is a winter tyre with a high performance level on dry, wet and snow covered road surfaces.
Michelin's tyre features a new directional tread pattern. An increased number of tread blocks and more sipes lead to greater traction on the snow. The Helio Compound 4G contains sunflower oil, keeping the tyre supple and capable of good performance in freezing winter conditions.
Greater resistance to aquaplaning is achieved thanks to the design of the lateral grooves which disperse water from the path of the tyre quickly.
