by 3

Off the back of testing and falling in love with the Michelin Wild Enduro, Andi tests the new Michelin Wild AM and Force AM. Will he be impressed? Earlier this year I tested the Nukeproof Giga, a super enduro bike that blew me away not just because of the performance but also the specification. This was a bike fitted with parts that enhanced how it rode, and the Michelin Wild Enduro tyres were a part of that amazing package. I was so taken with the Wild Enduro that came on that test bike that I chose to review them individually so I could rave about them. During my time with the Giga I was contacted by Silverfish, the UK distributor for Michelin, and asked if I wanted to test the new Michelin Wild and Force AM tyres.

    Hoyed a 27.5×2.6 Force AM2 on the back of my HB160 for a bit. Found it loads faster that the WE but felt it lacking on steeper stuff when it came to braking. Also, it comes up small.

    Now got a Big Betty.

    One seemed worse than the other – they eventually sealed though after a couple of weeks of daily riding.
