Top 10 Products of 2018: Michelin Energy Guard

Posted: December 17, 2018

Michelin’s Energy Guard demonstrated that the sum can be greater than its individual parts.

Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its individual parts. In this spirit, Michelin unveiled a fuel economy package – and it didn’t even include tires as part of the equation.

The Energy Guard aerodynamic system includes a flexible trailer side skirt that can bend over objects and snap back in place, aerodynamic flow-through mud flaps, a wake reducer to increase pressure on the back of the trailer in the name of reducing drag, and drag-­reducing fairings. Together they reportedly improve fuel economy by 7.4%.

Just remember that it’s an all-or-nothing proposition. Every component is included.
