The 3PMSF marked Agilis CrossClimate tyre is certified for use in snow conditions, but still behaves, brakes
and lasts like a summer tyre on dry roads. This is due to the latest rubber technology; compounds which deliver
rubber and tread flexibility, even at freezing temperatures and a multilayer tread area which minimises heat transfer
through the tyre.
Inspired by the award winning* CrossClimate+ car tyre, the tread pattern is V-shaped, and is an innovative
combination of high-tech tread blocks. These contain bi-directional self-locking sipes to provide cutting edges
which bite into snow and ice; for optimum grip on difficult winter surfaces. This combination of new tread rubber
and the V-shaped tread pattern deliver grip in all conditions, but also an increase in tyre life which is 35 per cent**
more than the average of premium competitors tested.
The increased damage resistance demanded by users is achieved through the addition of 1.5mm deep trapezoidal
blocks around the shoulder and upper sidewall. These – and the rubber they use – are features taken from Michelin’s
military all-terrain truck tyre range and give added protection, without compromising casing flexibility.
The Agilis CrossClimate has been developed and rigorously tested in challenging winter conditions by the Michelin
winter tyre testing team in two European locations, 4,000 kilometres apart. These are Ivalo, high up in the Arctic
Circle in Finland and Barcelonnette at 2,715 metres altitude in the Alps – one of the highest roads in Europe. Tested
and developed in these challenging conditions, you can be sure that if the new Agilis CrossClimate can survive
these tests, then a suitably equipped plumber coming to repair the heating, or delivery driver with that special gift,
will be there – right on time!
The Michelin Agilis CrossClimate is not just another all-season tyre, it offers all the advantages of a Summer tyre
in wet braking***, dry braking, longevity and fuel efficiency, and the advantages of a Winter tyre in traction and
braking*** for customers driving in cold or occasionally snowy conditions.
Michelin extends
CrossClimate range
into light truck and van
with AGILIS CrossClimate
Michelin is extending its award winning CrossClimate range into light truck and van with the launch of Agilis
CrossClimate. It is a summer tyre with a complete winter capability, and heralds a new generation of high
performance van and light truck tyres with no mobility compromises in winter conditions as well as on mud and
grass; tyres boasting high mileage and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), safety in all weathers, robustness and
damage resistance.
The new tyre is designed and conceived from end-user feedback gathered over the last 10 years, and delivers their
two crucial demands – a single tyre fitment that delivers all year round mobility in all weather conditions with a
robust and damage resistant sidewall. It does this with a rugged tread pattern, made with innovative new rubber
compounds and specific new features for sidewall and shoulder protection.
As a consequence of the boom in online shopping, and the large increase in local neighbourhood deliveries and
heavy vehicle restrictions in towns, the van and light truck is among the fastest growing vehicle segments for new
vehicle sales. Additionally, customer expectation on business owners, craftsmen and fleet managers to ensure all-
year round availability of deliveries and services, on time, whatever the weather conditions, saw the All-Season van
and light truck tyre market increase by 37 percent between 2016 and 2017.
The specification and blueprint given to the Michelin tyre designers for the Agilis CrossClimate resulted from
five years of feedback from end-users in France, Germany, Turkey and the U.K. Following thousands of qualitative
interviews by GMV, an external research institution, the two main factors demanded by users were:
A single long-life tyre, bringing excellent grip, traction and reliability in all seasons, through all
weather conditions and on all road surfaces.
Robustness and damage resistance; particularly in urban environments with frequent impacts with
kerbs and other objects.
*MICHELIN CrossClimate+ won Auto Express 2017/8 Best all-season tyre, and Auto Bild Allrad all-season SUV tyre tests 7/2017.
**DEKRA tests show a minimum of 35% more mileage versus the average competitor’s Summer, Winter & All-season products.
*** Recognised by the A label grading in winter and summer categories
The new Agilis CrossClimate heralds a new generation of high performance van and light truck tyres
with no mobility compromise in winter conditions; tyres boasting high mileage and low TCO, safety in
all weathers, robustness and damage resistance.
But what makes the tyre different? What has changed to deliver these new high levels of performance?
The Agilis CrossClimate has three main areas of improvement and a new feature; these are the rubber
compounds, the tread pattern, the sidewall design and a new style tread wear indicator.
Technology and Innovation –
Why and how the new tyre works!
TREAD RUBBER AND COMPOUNDS
The Agilis CrossClimate benefits from the latest compounds: the tread is made
from three different kind of rubber compounds (three synthetic elastomers). This
innovative technology allows the most adapted compound to “take the lead” on
the tyre performance – ‘winter compound’ at low temperatures, ‘wet profiled
compound’ when low adherence or ‘dry compound’ when hot and dry.
The CrossClimate’s innovative tread is also made with two layers - one on the outer
tread and another underneath the surface. This works to minimise any heat transferred
through the tyre and to reduce the heating of the tyre in demanding conditions. This
helps maintain the same level of performance however severe the usage.
The result of these high-tech components is a tyre that has been awarded the
premium wet grip accolade of an A label grading for wet braking in summer and
winter. Additionally the tyre is certified for use in snow conditions with the 3PMSF
marking, but still behaves and brakes like a summer tyre on dry roads.
TREAD PATTERN
Taking inspiration and lessons learned from the award winning
CrossClimate car tyre, the Agilis CrossClimate features the
V-shaped tread pattern with an innovative combination of high-
tech design tread blocks and 3D self-locking sipes.
The Michelin Agilis CrossClimate with its technical design
and ‘full depth’ sipes (9.2mm deep) embraces the Michelin Long
Lasting Performance philosophy. The tyre is designed to make
maximum use of the premium high-tech rubber and to perform
from the first millimetre right down until the tread wear indicator
is reached.
EXTRA SIDEWALL SHOULDER PROTECTION
The traditional Michelin high damage resistance has been
further enhanced with additional shoulder protection. This series
of 1.5mm deep trapezoidal blocks in the shoulder/sidewall area
are made from similar tough rubbers compounds to those used in
Michelin truck tyres.
Inspiration for this specific shoulder protection came from
Michelin’s military all-terrain truck tyre range (X Force ZL); these give
added protection without compromising the casing flexibility.
NEW TREAD WEAR INDICATOR
The new Agilis CrossClimate features a new tread wear
indicator within the groove; this gives an easily read percentage
of the tread remaining.
The initial tread depth is 9.2mm when new, and with the
“0%” tread depth set at the legal limit of 1.6mm, this gives
7.6mm of high-tech Michelin rubber to be used.

Developing tyres for use in all seasons and weather conditions is a challenge, but finding somewhere
with conditions to rigorously test those tyres is an even bigger challenge! Rain, snow and ice can be
replicated in small areas, but these are totally impractical for testing vans and light trucks in realistic
winter conditions. So how does Michelin extensively test and evaluate All-Season and Winter tyres?
The answer is simple; Michelin has access to one of the highest roads in Europe – ‘Col de la Bonette’ in the Alps
at an altitude of 2,715m. When this road is closed by the authorities in late Autumn, Michelin arrives and sets up
shop with its dedicated Winter tyre testing team.
For eight weeks from mid-December to the end of February – under the bewildered gaze of the chamois,
sometimes the French army on exercises, or cross-country skiers – four Michelin test drivers take turns to test and
perfect tyre design. All monitored by the Michelin R&D team, over the 15 kilometres of carefully prepared piste, the
design and performance of the new Agilis CrossClimate was fine-tuned.
With temperatures between 0° C and -15° C, a complete battery of tests on snow is performed; acceleration,
braking, traction and transverse grip. To ensure homogeneous test conditions, the road is prepared between each
test by snow groomers and the snow characteristics are checked and measured before each test.
But the Inuit have 53 different words for snow; so is all snow the same? No! That is why Michelin also has a
test facility at Ivalo in northern Finland, 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. In the Alps the snow is heavy and damp
with bigger snowflakes – due to the humidity; in Ivalo the snow is powdery and light. Snow characteristics vary
greatly, and that is why Michelin tests tyres in these two extremes – almost 4,000 kilometres apart – with different
snow qualities that enrich the tests and enable Michelin to evaluate tyre performance on many types of snow.
But the Agilis CrossClimate is still a summer tyre at heart, with the highest levels of performance in the dry, wet,
mud, grass… But it is in these challenging conditions that the new Agilis CrossClimate has been developed and tested.
If it can survive the Michelin tests in these conditions, you can be sure the plumber coming to repair the
heating, or the delivery driver with that special gift, will be there – right on time!
Testing to the limit –
Ivalo and Barcelonette and specialist testers
SO HOW DID MICHELIN DESIGN THE NEW GENERATION
OF VAN AND LIGHT TRUCK TYRE?
The specification and blueprint given to the Michelin tyre designers for the Agilis CrossClimate resulted from
five years of feedback from end-users in France, Germany, Turkey and the U.K. Following thousands of qualitative
interviews by GMV*, an external research institution, the two main factors demanded by users were:
A single long-life tyre, bringing excellent grip, traction and reliability in all seasons, through all weather
conditions and on all road surfaces.
Robustness and damage resistance; particularly in urban environments with frequent impacts with kerbs and
other objects.
The new Agilis CrossClimate delivers all this in a long-life tyre bringing safety and reliability in all seasons,
through excellent grip and traction in all weather conditions and on all road surfaces. It does this through
innovative rubber compounds and materials, a V-shaped tread pattern with robust tread blocks and sidewall
reinforcements inspired by Michelin’s military tyre range.

The van and light truck, once used mainly by craftsmen and small businesses, has
become one of the fastest growing vehicle segments on Europe’s roads as consumers
have embraced online shopping. In fact the number of vans and light trucks on the
road in Europe has increased significantly in the last few years, and the market for
All-Season van and light truck tyres increased by 37 percent from 2016 to 2017. This
growth of just-in-time, door-to-door deliveries, and customer expectation has put
pressure on fleet managers, business owners and craftsmen to ensure all-year round
availability of deliveries and services.
Key information
Michelin’s development has largely been built on innovation. From the
removal tire in 1891 to the first summer tire certified for winter use in
2015, Michelin’s history has comprised innovations that are milestones in
the enhancement of mobility for goods and people.

  • 3. 1. agilis crossclimate 2 agilis crossclimate 1 The 3PMSF marked Agilis CrossClimate tyre is certified for use in snow conditions, but still behaves, brakes and lasts like a summer tyre on dry roads. This is due to the latest rubber technology; compounds which deliver rubber and tread flexibility, even at freezing temperatures and a multilayer tread area which minimises heat transfer through the tyre. Inspired by the award winning* CrossClimate+ car tyre, the tread pattern is V-shaped, and is an innovative combination of high-tech tread blocks. These contain bi-directional self-locking sipes to provide cutting edges which bite into snow and ice; for optimum grip on difficult winter surfaces. This combination of new tread rubber and the V-shaped tread pattern deliver grip in all conditions, but also an increase in tyre life which is 35 per cent** more than the average of premium competitors tested. The increased damage resistance demanded by users is achieved through the addition of 1.5mm deep trapezoidal blocks around the shoulder and upper sidewall. These – and the rubber they use – are features taken from Michelin’s military all-terrain truck tyre range and give added protection, without compromising casing flexibility. The Agilis CrossClimate has been developed and rigorously tested in challenging winter conditions by the Michelin winter tyre testing team in two European locations, 4,000 kilometres apart. These are Ivalo, high up in the Arctic Circle in Finland and Barcelonnette at 2,715 metres altitude in the Alps – one of the highest roads in Europe. Tested and developed in these challenging conditions, you can be sure that if the new Agilis CrossClimate can survive these tests, then a suitably equipped plumber coming to repair the heating, or delivery driver with that special gift, will be there – right on time! The Michelin Agilis CrossClimate is not just another all-season tyre, it offers all the advantages of a Summer tyre in wet braking***, dry braking, longevity and fuel efficiency, and the advantages of a Winter tyre in traction and braking*** for customers driving in cold or occasionally snowy conditions. Michelin extends CrossClimate range into light truck and van with AGILIS CrossClimate Michelin is extending its award winning CrossClimate range into light truck and van with the launch of Agilis CrossClimate. It is a summer tyre with a complete winter capability, and heralds a new generation of high performance van and light truck tyres with no mobility compromises in winter conditions as well as on mud and grass; tyres boasting high mileage and low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), safety in all weathers, robustness and damage resistance. The new tyre is designed and conceived from end-user feedback gathered over the last 10 years, and delivers their two crucial demands – a single tyre fitment that delivers all year round mobility in all weather conditions with a robust and damage resistant sidewall. It does this with a rugged tread pattern, made with innovative new rubber compounds and specific new features for sidewall and shoulder protection. As a consequence of the boom in online shopping, and the large increase in local neighbourhood deliveries and heavy vehicle restrictions in towns, the van and light truck is among the fastest growing vehicle segments for new vehicle sales. Additionally, customer expectation on business owners, craftsmen and fleet managers to ensure all- year round availability of deliveries and services, on time, whatever the weather conditions, saw the All-Season van and light truck tyre market increase by 37 percent between 2016 and 2017. The specification and blueprint given to the Michelin tyre designers for the Agilis CrossClimate resulted from five years of feedback from end-users in France, Germany, Turkey and the U.K. Following thousands of qualitative interviews by GMV, an external research institution, the two main factors demanded by users were: A single long-life tyre, bringing excellent grip, traction and reliability in all seasons, through all weather conditions and on all road surfaces. Robustness and damage resistance; particularly in urban environments with frequent impacts with kerbs and other objects. *MICHELIN CrossClimate+ won Auto Express 2017/8 Best all-season tyre, and Auto Bild Allrad all-season SUV tyre tests 7/2017. **DEKRA tests show a minimum of 35% more mileage versus the average competitor’s Summer, Winter & All-season products. *** Recognised by the A label grading in winter and summer categories
  • 4. The new Agilis CrossClimate heralds a new generation of high performance van and light truck tyres with no mobility compromise in winter conditions; tyres boasting high mileage and low TCO, safety in all weathers, robustness and damage resistance. But what makes the tyre different? What has changed to deliver these new high levels of performance? The Agilis CrossClimate has three main areas of improvement and a new feature; these are the rubber compounds, the tread pattern, the sidewall design and a new style tread wear indicator. Technology and Innovation – Why and how the new tyre works! TREAD RUBBER AND COMPOUNDS The Agilis CrossClimate benefits from the latest compounds: the tread is made from three different kind of rubber compounds (three synthetic elastomers). This innovative technology allows the most adapted compound to “take the lead” on the tyre performance – ‘winter compound’ at low temperatures, ‘wet profiled compound’ when low adherence or ‘dry compound’ when hot and dry. The CrossClimate’s innovative tread is also made with two layers - one on the outer tread and another underneath the surface. This works to minimise any heat transferred through the tyre and to reduce the heating of the tyre in demanding conditions. This helps maintain the same level of performance however severe the usage. The result of these high-tech components is a tyre that has been awarded the premium wet grip accolade of an A label grading for wet braking in summer and winter. Additionally the tyre is certified for use in snow conditions with the 3PMSF marking, but still behaves and brakes like a summer tyre on dry roads. TREAD PATTERN Taking inspiration and lessons learned from the award winning CrossClimate car tyre, the Agilis CrossClimate features the V-shaped tread pattern with an innovative combination of high- tech design tread blocks and 3D self-locking sipes. The Michelin Agilis CrossClimate with its technical design and ‘full depth’ sipes (9.2mm deep) embraces the Michelin Long Lasting Performance philosophy. The tyre is designed to make maximum use of the premium high-tech rubber and to perform from the first millimetre right down until the tread wear indicator is reached. EXTRA SIDEWALL SHOULDER PROTECTION The traditional Michelin high damage resistance has been further enhanced with additional shoulder protection. This series of 1.5mm deep trapezoidal blocks in the shoulder/sidewall area are made from similar tough rubbers compounds to those used in Michelin truck tyres. Inspiration for this specific shoulder protection came from Michelin’s military all-terrain truck tyre range (X Force ZL); these give added protection without compromising the casing flexibility. NEW TREAD WEAR INDICATOR The new Agilis CrossClimate features a new tread wear indicator within the groove; this gives an easily read percentage of the tread remaining. The initial tread depth is 9.2mm when new, and with the “0%” tread depth set at the legal limit of 1.6mm, this gives 7.6mm of high-tech Michelin rubber to be used. 2. agilis crossclimate 4 agilis crossclimate 3 The result of these high-tech components is a tyre that has been awarded the premium wet grip accolade of an A label grading for wet braking in summer and winter.

  • 5. Developing tyres for use in all seasons and weather conditions is a challenge, but finding somewhere with conditions to rigorously test those tyres is an even bigger challenge! Rain, snow and ice can be replicated in small areas, but these are totally impractical for testing vans and light trucks in realistic winter conditions. So how does Michelin extensively test and evaluate All-Season and Winter tyres? The answer is simple; Michelin has access to one of the highest roads in Europe – ‘Col de la Bonette’ in the Alps at an altitude of 2,715m. When this road is closed by the authorities in late Autumn, Michelin arrives and sets up shop with its dedicated Winter tyre testing team. For eight weeks from mid-December to the end of February – under the bewildered gaze of the chamois, sometimes the French army on exercises, or cross-country skiers – four Michelin test drivers take turns to test and perfect tyre design. All monitored by the Michelin R&D team, over the 15 kilometres of carefully prepared piste, the design and performance of the new Agilis CrossClimate was fine-tuned. With temperatures between 0° C and -15° C, a complete battery of tests on snow is performed; acceleration, braking, traction and transverse grip. To ensure homogeneous test conditions, the road is prepared between each test by snow groomers and the snow characteristics are checked and measured before each test. But the Inuit have 53 different words for snow; so is all snow the same? No! That is why Michelin also has a test facility at Ivalo in northern Finland, 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. In the Alps the snow is heavy and damp with bigger snowflakes – due to the humidity; in Ivalo the snow is powdery and light. Snow characteristics vary greatly, and that is why Michelin tests tyres in these two extremes – almost 4,000 kilometres apart – with different snow qualities that enrich the tests and enable Michelin to evaluate tyre performance on many types of snow. But the Agilis CrossClimate is still a summer tyre at heart, with the highest levels of performance in the dry, wet, mud, grass… But it is in these challenging conditions that the new Agilis CrossClimate has been developed and tested. If it can survive the Michelin tests in these conditions, you can be sure the plumber coming to repair the heating, or the delivery driver with that special gift, will be there – right on time! Testing to the limit – Ivalo and Barcelonette and specialist testers SO HOW DID MICHELIN DESIGN THE NEW GENERATION OF VAN AND LIGHT TRUCK TYRE? The specification and blueprint given to the Michelin tyre designers for the Agilis CrossClimate resulted from five years of feedback from end-users in France, Germany, Turkey and the U.K. Following thousands of qualitative interviews by GMV*, an external research institution, the two main factors demanded by users were: A single long-life tyre, bringing excellent grip, traction and reliability in all seasons, through all weather conditions and on all road surfaces. Robustness and damage resistance; particularly in urban environments with frequent impacts with kerbs and other objects. The new Agilis CrossClimate delivers all this in a long-life tyre bringing safety and reliability in all seasons, through excellent grip and traction in all weather conditions and on all road surfaces. It does this through innovative rubber compounds and materials, a V-shaped tread pattern with robust tread blocks and sidewall reinforcements inspired by Michelin’s military tyre range. A tyre born from feedback from fleet owners, small businesses and tradesmen 3. 4. Site of Ivalo in Finland *studies carried out by GMV Conseil, a Paris based market research consultant agilis crossclimate 6 agilis crossclimate 5 The van and light truck, once used mainly by craftsmen and small businesses, has become one of the fastest growing vehicle segments on Europe’s roads as consumers have embraced online shopping. In fact the number of vans and light trucks on the road in Europe has increased significantly in the last few years, and the market for All-Season van and light truck tyres increased by 37 percent from 2016 to 2017. This growth of just-in-time, door-to-door deliveries, and customer expectation has put pressure on fleet managers, business owners and craftsmen to ensure all-year round availability of deliveries and services.
  • 6. Key information Michelin’s development has largely been built on innovation.
