MICHELIN® ENERGY GUARD KIT
5 WAYS TO CONTROL COSTS BY CONTROLLING AIRFLOW
Michelin is focused on creating new ways to lower your cost per mile and your total cost of ownership. And now, we're proud to introduce our newest innovation, MICHELIN® Aerodynamic Solutions—featuring a durable, fully integrated Energy Guard kit that controls the vehicle's airflow and delivers significant fuel savings without raising maintenance costs.

FLEXIBLE, DURABLE TECHNOLOGY
Minimal to no maintenance
or repairs once installed
RESILIENT TRAILER SKIRT
Advanced technology allows brackets to flex and give for better control of airflow, while also remaining incredibly tough to bend around objects and bounce right back into place.
- Rigid, impact-resistant design
- Full flexibility both inward and outward
- Durable, fiberglass-reinforced polymer panel
PATENT-PENDING BRACKET AND SLIDER DESIGN
Sliding brackets reduce load on skirt panels to take full advantage of tough skirt materials.
DRAG-REDUCING TRAILER END FAIRINGS
Designed for the top and side of the trailer to accelerate and then turn airflow around the back of the trailer, reducing drag even more.
- Patented design with unique profile
- Does not require cutouts for hinges
- No overhang to reduce chance of damage
INNOVATIVE WAKE REDUCER
A Michelin innovation that works much like a spoiler, increasing the pressure on the back of the trailer.
- Patent-pending, rear-facing spoiler
- Profiled to allow for full door opening
- Trips downward-flowing air to reduce primary recirculation zone in
AERODYNAMIC MUD FLAPS
Designed to reduce vehicle drag and road spray.
- Patent-pending angled and progressive louvers
- Aerodynamic, louvered cross-section profile
- Easy-to-mount hole pattern with patent-pending wings
