The Pilot Exalto PE2 is Michelin's entry level Ultra High Performance Summer tyre designed to raise both the status and performance of small sporty cars that use low profile-sized tyres. The Pilot Exalto PE2 was inspired by Michelin's World Rally Championship (WRC) tyre design and architecture, and was developed to provide crisp and responsive handling in both wet and dry conditions, however it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. On the outside, the Pilot Exalto PE2 molds Michelin's WRC competition-inspired LMA (Life Maximized Adherence) tread compound optimized for street use to provide predictable handling and sustained levels of grip throughout the tyre's life. The LMA tread compound is molded into Michelin's Variable Contact Patch (VCP) asymmetrical tread design with large independent outer shoulder tread blocks and a 70% rubber-to-road contact on the outer half of the tyre's footprint to put more rubber on the road during extreme cornering to enhance responsiveness and sporty handling. The asymmetrical tread design also features 62% rubber-to-road contact on the inner half of the tyre to enhance hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Continuous center ribs help reduce noise while providing constant road contact to increase straight-line stability. Internally, the Pilot Exalto PE2 features twin, high tensile steel belts that are fortified with Michelin's Banded At Zero (BAZ) technology (spiral-wrapped reinforcement) to stabilize the tread area to enhance handling and high-speed capability. A rayon cord body and dual sidewall reinforcements help resist lateral deflection to generate cornering force and stability.
