Bikecorp will have access to all MICHELIN bicycle products, which covers all riding segments (road, mountain, hybrid, electric and commuter tyres) at many different price points. Bikecorp will also stock many new MICHELIN products launching in 2019, so that Australian riders have access to the best that Michelin has to offer from an Australian bicycle tyre retailer.

Neil Watson, Bikecorp Product Manager said the company was extremely excited and privileged to be appointed as distributor for Michelin in the Australian bicycle sector.

“We feel combining Michelin’s 128 years of knowledge, expertise and innovation worldwide, with Bikecorp’s 35 years in the Australian market, will forge a formidable partnership," he said. "We look forward to working with the team at Michelin to once again make Michelin the dominant brand.”
