Video Michelins new Starcross 5 MX tyre
New rubber put through paces at Michelin MX Nationals
HERE'S Michelin's Starcross 5 MX tyre in action at the Michelin MX Nationals, with opinion on the new rubber from racers Luke Mellows, Alfie Smith, Graeme Irwin, Alex Snow and Niel Prince.
The tyre was launched at last weekend's final round of the Michelin MX Nationals at Canada Heights in Swanley, Kent, where three Visordown competition winners collected a free pair at a VIP dinner with Suzuki, KTM and Husqvarna factory teams.
Michelin says it's got a new lighter casing than its predecessor, the Starcross 4, offering improved straight-line traction, more progressive handling in corners, the ability to run higher pressures to reduce the risk of the tyre coming off the rim, and easier fitting.
Irwin says of it: 'On the way into the corner it seems the tyre rolls but just very slightly, which gives it more grip and more feel on the way in.
'It's definitely a good change they've made. It's kind of a scary thing whenever somebody brings a new tyre out. You're like, the old one was good. Now it's definitely a better tyre.'
