Michelin Starcross 5 SAND - Motocross Tyres
Michelin doesn't need any special introductions when it comes to their motocross tyres. There's a tyre for almost every terrain, because apart from the rider needing to adapt, so does the bike and especially the tyre. This particular range was created with sandy surfaces in mind; you'll notice the paddle-like design in the rear tyre to "scoop" that loose terrain away from the bike to increase traction. Michelin motorcycle tyre engineers worked on creating these tyres for three years. They carried out demanding testing on difficult terrain and finally achieved a result far beyong their expectations. According to Michelin, the most well-rounded and technical specialist sand tyres in their class. Light and better handling, the Michelin Starcross Sand tyres bring a range of technologies together. Their flexible carcass is one, the other the actual design which increases the traction and performance on the straight and through corners.
