MICHELIN StarCross 5 Features
Specific Front Patterns
For hard soils, the contact patch on top of tread blocks is maximised compared with the soft option where the tread is designed to ‘bite’ into the soil for enhanced traction. This keeps the equivalent contact patch whatever the lean angle. For soft soils, the central tread blocks are split in two to ease their penetration in the ground.
Specific Rear Patterns
As for the fronts, the groove ratio of the rear tyre is adapted to the type of terrain: the softer the ground, the more the groove ratio is increased. The intermediate tread blocks of the Soft and Medium versions are positioned in staggered rows to reduce handling issues when changing direction/angle.
All the NEW MICHELIN StarCross tyres now feature:
- Self cleaning tread to enhance traction
- Aggressive tread blocks to increase grip at maximum lean angles – whatever the terrain
- Lighter casing design for easier and quicker handling – without compromising strength or durability
