The Michelin M12 XC has set the standard of how motorcycle tires should perform and hold up to the abuse of motocross racing and off-road riding.
Michelin designed and constructed the M12 XC tires to offer ideal performance on intermediate terrain.
An updated rubber compound finds its place in the M12 XC tires to improve grip.
Michelin continued the upgrades with the M12 XC tire by redesigning the tire structure with additional casing ply to improve tread flex which in turn improves feedback, traction and warm-up time.
The stiffened sidewalls of the M12 XC tire transmit additional feedback with increased lateral rigidity.
Featuring massive tread blocks, the Michelin M12 tire is designed to resist chunking on hard packed surfaces to optimize both performance and wear life.
Michelin uses a wide spaced tread pattern on the M12 tires to improve traction in soft conditions.
Cross 12 Casting allows the Michelin M12 tire to have maximum traction and steering performance in mixed conditions.
Michelin Sizing Conversion:
Michelin has their own proprietary method for measuring their off-road XC tires: The width of Cross tires is measured at the level of the base of the tread blocks, while for Enduro tires, it is measured by the overall dimension, that is to say at the widest point which is the top of the tread blocks. Since this may confuse customers who ordered based on their fitment but received a tire which appears to be incorrectly sized, the chart below has been provided. It converts from standard sizing (as purchased) to Michelin's sizes (written on tire sidewalls).
Conventional size 80/100-21 = Michelin size of 90/90-21.
Conventional size 100/90-19 = Michelin size of 120/80-19.
Conventional size 110/90-19 = Michelin size of 130/70-19.
Conventional size 100/100-18 = Michelin size of 120/90-18.
Conventional size 110/100-18 = Michelin size of 130/80-18.
Conventional size 120/90-18 = Michelin size of 140/80-18.
