REDESIGNED ARCHITECTURE • Lateral rigidity is maintained by using two, more densely constructed polyester plies, providing increased sidewall strength, which reduces the likelihood of pinch flats. • Enhanced tread designs with more aggressive sculptures and variable height tread blocks that maintain traction straight up and at varying lean angles. • MICHELIN StarCross 5 front tires are designed to enhance braking performance and cornering traction while maintaining an optimized contact patch. • The new bead profile makes them easier to install. COMFORT CASING TECHNOLOGY • The new casing absorbs square edges and braking bumps better, and minimizes tire rebound, which helps reduce arm pump and rider fatigue. SELF-CLEANING TREAD DESIGN • Fine lines found at the base of the tread blocks are designed to release mud and debris as the casing flexes to maintain maximum traction. • Mud-Phobic Bars between the central blocks on the MICHELIN StarCross 5 Soft rear maximize the cleaning capability and improve lateral grip in softer terrain. WIDER SCOPE OF USE • MICHELIN StarCross 5 Medium and Soft versions are more versatile and effective in a wider range of terrains and conditions compared to the previous range. EXPANDED FITMENTS • Seven new sizes added to provide matched set options on a wider range of motocross, off-road and vintage bikes. TIRES
