The new collection of tires is engineered to deliver excellent grip and strength to cover an exceptionally wide variety of terrain. The four new ranges are: MICHELIN Jet XCR, MICHELIN Force XC, MICHELIN Force AM and Michelin Wild AM.
The Jet XCR is the fastest Michelin tire for mountain biking and provides for greater performance and propulsion thanks to its mix of two rubber compounds. Force XC is the most agile of Michelin’s cross-country tires for mountain bikes and was developed with the 2016 UCI World Cup Champion team. The Force AM is extra tough and durable and therefore perfect for trail and “All Mountain” riding. Lastly, the Wild AM offers improved grip and propulsion as well as excellent braking thanks to its mix of three rubber compounds.
Many of these new tires have been tested on the Enduro World Series and a promising setup for certain trails has been a Michelin Wild AM in front paired with a Force AM in the back.

The patent pending rib cage protection combined with the unique 3 panel design will bring your bike safely wherever you want to go whilst at the same time compress to storage friendly size when the journey is over.

Usually luggage doesn’t get us too excited but Douchebags have a lot of well designed and thought out bags in a wide variety of sizes and formats. Their wheeled bags come in two sizes (60L – Little Bastard, 90L Big Bastard).
They have backpacks like the Hugger (30L or 60L) or smaller aviator that can strap onto the wheeled bag nicely as you can see above. The seam is also reinforced in a clean package with smart materials used across the products to aid in grip, reduce wear, and improve user fatigue.
