🎥 Tested: Michelin StarCross 5 Tyres

2 weeks ago

We first sampled Michelin’s StarCross 5 tyres when they first arrived a couple of years ago, and quickly became fans – albeit after coming to terms with their thinner carcass construction and the corresponding need to run higher air pressures. And now that we’ve reacquainted ourselves with the StarCross 5 hoops, which we ran on our 2019 Yamaha WR450F project bike, we’ve had the opportunity to more thoroughly test both Soft- and Medium-Terrain options, and both the 80/100 and 90/100 sizing in the 21-inch front. But we wanted to know more, so we enlisted the help of Aussie off-road legend, Josh Green, for his thoughts on how the hoops perform in a variety of conditions.
