Michelin Tires & Tubes

As the first company to develop easily removable bicycle tires known today as clinchers, Michelin stamped their authority on bike racing in 1891 at the Paris-Brest-Paris road race. Their win in Paris under Charles Terront began a long string of victories that nearly spans the history of the bicycle.

Today, Michelin’s performance bicycle tires and tubes benefit from technology that has been developed from Michelin's billion dollar research and development motorsports division.
