The Rock'R2 is available in two compound options: the Magi-X, which is a softer, dual compound tread, and the Gum-X, a harder, single compound tread. Designed for use in dry conditions, the tread pattern is said to be laid out to offer the best combination of rider output and braking ability by way of a center tread that alternates transversal and longitudinal blocks, and its large lateral lugs are made up of either 50A or 55A rubber depending on the need. Numerous sipes throughout the tread should help increase block mobility and create high-pressure areas, and the casing features dual layer construction that feels well built and durable. A reinforced sidewall gives a peace of mind that the tire is designed to withstand some pretty substantial terrain. Overall, the construction of the Rock'R2 is burly enough that we'd feel comfortable pinning through almost any rocky trail.

Pinkbike's Take:
bigquotes Designing a tire around enduro racing can mean many things: they could be light and fast or burly and durable, with either option possibly being the ticket come race day depending on the course. Michelin chose the latter and we can't say we blame them. Ripping through rocky, unknown terrain requires a certain level of trust in your tires, doesn't it? And after spending a bit of time plowing through rocks with Fabien Barel, it's no wonder why the Rock'R2 turned out how it did. No, they aren't the best choice if the terrain is tamer or the event turns into a mud bog, but they truly do shine on any other sort of trail that points downwards. - Jordan Carr
