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.
