For three years, MICHELIN mobilized its engineers and riders to design this tire. Rigorous tests on rough terrains led to a final result exceeding our expectations. We thus developed a tire specializing in sand, the most complete and technical tire of its kind, with your riding pleasure in mind.
More lightweight and maneuverable, the new MICHELIN StarCross 5 Sand tire features a combination of technologies. The key point is its carcass, which is considerably more flexible. Its performance on straight lines and curves is optimized, providing your motorcycle with improved traction and steadier handling around curves.
