Michelin Starcross 5 Soft Terrain Rear Tire

After stepping away from professional racing for several years, Michelin is back with a brand new tire and ready to challenge at the highest levels.

Dubbed the Starcross 5, Michelin put big emphasis into making a tire that is noticeably lighter and more compliant in feel.

Compared to past Starcross tires, this new design is up to 15% lighter while still maintaining a strong and durable carcass.A lot of focus went into optimizing the tread block pattern for each unique terrain type and besides having a bigger footprint to dig into the dirt, the knob pattern is self-cleaning to prevent unwanted dirt buildup.

  • The new casing design incorporates stronger, higher density materials that reduce weight up to 15 percent without compromising strength or durability
  • The casing construction also features MICHELIN’s all-new Comfort Casing Technology (CCT), which provides exceptional shock absorption that reduces rider fatigue
  • Lastly, the new casing design has been engineered to optimize the size of the tire’s contact patch. Combined with aggressive front and rear tread patterns, specially designed for each tire in the range, this construction offers maximum levels of grip for precise steering and traction, even in the most difficult conditions
Reduced Weight:
  • Stronger, higher density casing materials reduce weight
  • Reduced unsprung mass on both front and rear tires reduces the rotational inertia for improved acceleration, braking, and steering control
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 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 (Soft Compound only)
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

amazing tire for the sand

Husqvarna FE501. After 10 years of desert riding I am now riding the best tire ever. Cornering is fantastic. Controlled power turns in soft deep sand are perfect. Earth moving abilities up big dunes are fantastic. If you ride in the desert and don't want a paddle, get this tire
