Michelin Power Cup
The Cup tyre comes in to replace the old Michelin Power Ones that used to come in the three compounds. You now have the same three compounds in the Cup tyres which are A, B and C. Here’s a look at the three compounds:
Compound A –The A compound – like the K0 and SC0 – will give outstanding levels of grip but for a short period of time. Used for racers for qualifying in temperatures on the hot side.
Compound B – The B compound is the ‘soft/medium’ version which again like the middle compounds above will often be used for front tyres, with the C compound bringing up the rear.
Compound C – The hardest compound which you will most likely see used as a rear tyre for its high levels of grip and longevity.
