Michelin 120/80-19 Starcross 5 Medium R
The MICHELIN Starcross 5 range breaks new ground for the MICHELIN group in the world of motocross. It marks Michelin?s return to this constantly shifting and particularly competitive market in 2015 with these new solutions, and the entire motocross range is poised to be renewed entirely within the next two years.
Directional intermediate and side tread blocks ensure good steering response from the front tyre and traction from the rear while the central blocks are designed specifically to enhance braking performance and traction on all types of track surfaces ? where they act like hooks to dig-in and drive the motorcycle forward.
Compared to its predecessors (MICHELIN Starcross 3 and 4) the MICHELIN Starcross 5 range features a new, lighter casing design which offers easier and quicker handling with no loss of durability due to the use of stronger, higher density materials. This more flexible casing also offers a number of other benefits for riders, including:
-Improved traction in a straight line and more progressive handling in corners -The ability to run higher pressures (with no loss of grip or comfort) to reduce the risk of the tyre coming off the rim -No ?running-in? needed as the flexible casing offers great performance from the starting gate -Easier to fi
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.
