The history of Michelin's involvement in off road racing and the long history of the S12 XC dirt bike tire makes for a competition ready tire that you can trust to get you to the finish line.
The Michelin S12 XC tire was strictly designed for traction in soft terrain. The newest S12 XC tire takes it a step further and improved the durability in conjunction with better grip. The reformulated rubber mixture on the S12 XC improves durability by at least 25% from previous Michelin tires.
A championship tire needs to transmit feedback efficiently and Michelin improved this on the S12 XC with a redesigned casing by adding a ply and adding thickness to the sidewalls in the bead area.
Maintaining the proven tread pattern was exactly what Michelin did with the S12 XC tire. The shoulder pattern promotes cornering stability. Keeping the lugs clear from mud build up is accomplished with the S12 XC tires unique 45° knobs.
Note: the Michelin S12 XC tire is sold individually.
I bought this based on a recommendation from a friend. I am very happy so far. This tire hooks up well and seems to be wearing at a slow pace. I have always used the MS3 but they do not make that in an 18inch size so this was my option.
Great tire, raced Harescrambles and rode all season with one tire. Stuudded it up and rode all winter. Just bought a new one for this season only because I don't want to take out the Kold Kutters. Great tire this new S12 XC, wears like no other tire I've seen.
