MAXION Flexible Wheel with MICHELIN ACORUS Technology

Built to withstand the toughest road conditions, ACORUS keeps drivers and passengers safe by absorbing and dramatically reducing impact and vibrations from potholes or road hazards.

In addition to improving ride comfort and lowering road-noise levels, ACORUS eliminates costly tire and wheel damage. And with fewer damaged tires going to the landfill, ACORUS is reducing the environmental impact.

The patented new technology, which is compatible with all passenger tires on the market, also minimizes the barrier to autonomous driving as a mechanical solution for potholes – you can drive right through it, rather than navigate around it.  

ACORUS was developed in a collaboration between Michelin and Maxion Wheels.

ACORUS makes its market debut during Chinese International Import Expo in Shanghai. November 9, 2020
