Moto Picto performance Tyres

It took several years to develop these one-of-a-kind performance tyres. During our tests, our motorcycles rode on the roughest of terrains while enduring the most extreme of conditions.

Outstanding technical performance

More lightweight and maneuverable, the new Starcross 5 Soft 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.

I use these exclusively for the front in the 90/100 'fattie' The fatty especially is my prefered for hard enduro use, it mounts up just a little smaller in size then some of the other brands fatty fronts 'which can be overly huge!). I run the fat front with a HD tube at around 10-11psi with no problems, never had the need for tubliss or mousse in the front tyre. Wears well and has a very steep performance drop off once too far gone. Doesn't chunk knobs off until it's way past worn where it performs well anyway. I'll definitely keep buying these for the front!

Great tyre for enduro

The Starcross 5 Soft has been very good on my vintage enduro bike, used in a mix of hardpack and forest type terrain.

First off let me say this, the tires are amazing. I pulled 2 holeshots with them my first race out. Secondly, they just grip and rip. I didn’t find issues with traction due to the tires themselves and has made me more comfortable on the bike than I have in the last year searching for a good tire. Safe to say I have found said tire and will run it till the wheels fall off.

The best tires I’ve ever put on my bike

Had this tyre on for about 4 months riding hard enduro and fire trails. Popped a tube yesterday 40 odd kms through tough tracks from my camp. I had to ride back on a flat, thinking the tyre would be destroyed. There was barely a mark on it. These tyres are unreal and I will not be buying anything else. Its grippy in the wet, its grippy in the dry and its even grippy flat. Well done Michelin on a top product.

100% confidence unreal durability

The Starcross5 Soft is my GO-TO race tire! The front and rear offer incredible bite and traction, with uncompromised feel! The carcass is pretty soft on the front allowing a lot of small hard blows to be absorbed extremely well. The rear digs and has a consistent feel into the corners. The medium has a bit better lifespan, but this is the best performing tire in the line up!

Excellent grip and supple feel!
