anakee 3s

Just got out first few sets of michelin anakee 3s in stock. Definitely not as agressive of a tread pattern as the previous two versions. However the treads are fairly wide as well as deep. Had a set of heidenaus next to them and one of our service writers noted the new anakee tread pattern looked like a severly toned down heidenau. Looks like it will do well on the street.

Would love to get some reviews on these tires. Pm me if interested in a set.

Price for a set of v-speed rated anakee 3s in 1200/1150gs sizes.about$145 front and $174 rear. H rating are a bit less but they are not nearly as popular.

I was a big fan of Anakee II's. Are they still going to ba available for a while?

I'm not an expert, but they look like street tires, not dual sport tires.

Would you be able to ship to little corners of the world like NZ?

I doubt we'll get them any time soon and most won't ship tyres overseas

Are there any differences between them that could allow the H version to last longer, or not as long? The higher speed rating is moot for me.

Until something better comes along, I'll stick with the PR3s for street/fire road tires.

I'll be watching these for rider feedback, might be the next great thing.

With the Anakee 2's we typically saw a little more life with the higher speed rating.

While I agree they are probably a 90% street 10% offoad or even 95% street 5% offroad, the guys at Michelin are pretty close to if not the top of the tire game. When we first saw the PR3's we thought is was a joke and now we sell PR3's 10 to 1 to any other sport touring tire.

Thanks. Any speculation why?
