What technology does it use in its construction?
Michelin's DH34 is available in a couple of options, both with a standard Wire Bead, Tubeless Ready construction. The competition oriented Racing Line variant utilises a blend of the Magi-X-DH compound and Downhill Shield casing, grip and stability are delivered in abundance whilst remaining compliant. The 4 ply carcass features reinforcement to all areas, including Low Pressure Pinch Protection local to the Bead and sidewall and cross laid Bead to Bead Protection layers laid above a High Density Puncture Protection layer on the crown. The Bike Park model comes in a Gum-X compound mated to the 4x33TPI Gravity Shield casing, despite lacking some of the additional protection compared to its sibling, this bike park specific version has been optimised for speed and durability, whilst being more accessible with a mid range price point.
