Having spend two weekends on this tire and hitting nearly every terrain possible...  This is a SOLID Adventure Tire.  

Check out the Full Length Feature Film showcasing this tire in Fast Paced Freeway, Tight Twisties, Dirt Roads, Mud, Deep Sand and even Snow!

Front Anakee Adventure:

Rear Anakee Adventure: 



These Michelin Anakee Adventure Tires fill perfectly the void between the Anakee III and the Anakee Wild.  Similar, but much more advanced technologically than the "Original Anakee," the "Original Tourance," or the K76  ADVENTURE tires from years past...  This tire Excels at what Michelin says it will do.  It is slated as a 70 to 80% Road Tire with a splash of off-road-ability capable of most anything you can throw it into.  Well, we tested that theory.  Here is my 5 Star Rating for each Terrain: 

***** Highway : This tire was quiet, smooth and did not get headshake at any speed. 
***** Bi-way : 1 or 2 lane twisty roads this tire ate up. Hammering full throttle, braking hard into corners and full throttle out...  this tire excelled. 
***** Hardpack Dirt Road :  Handled like it was on the highway throwing a good roost. 
***** Wet Pavement : Was able to pull the front wheel off the ground without wheel spin and was able to hammer twisties.  Loved it. 
****  Gravel Roads : Backed in a bit... but was to be expected.  Front tire needs to be "straight up and down." 
****  Deep Sand : Compared to a knobby tire it would be a *** but as compared to other tires in its class... it moved the bike forward well.  Did not like the front tire here... but the rear performed well above my expectations. 
**    Larger Loose Rocks : This was the worst performing "normal terrain" we encountered.  When the tire was kicked sideways, it did not "regrip" on the landing. This was a factor in 1 decent crash and many more pucker factor situations. 
**    Snow : This tire did not do well in Snow.  The tread groves got filled with snow / turned into Ice and well.... that was the end of it. 

Michelin says that this tire fits into its Adventure Touring tire range between the 50/50 Anakee Wild tires and the 90/10 Anakee 3 tires.  I totally agree.  It really did well in most settings. 

  • 80% on-road, 20% off-road
  • 2CT and 2CT+ compounds
  • Fitment for popular ADV bikes * 13 Sizes by the end of 2019. 

I would run this REAR tire for sure and would probably run the Anakee Wild up front... for Maxium Traction Off-Road with Maximum Longevity in the rear.  My 2 Cents...  

Got any questions?
