May be the easiest tire I have ever mounted. Light weight and outlast the Dunlop's I used to run. They also hook up well on soft and hard terrain.

Using a soft front and medium rear with Michelin mousse
Very happy with the grip in sandy soil ruts
I put both tires on and have done 2 rides, all single track woods and I love these tires! Payed a little extra for the Michelin’s but absolutely love them!
Just bought this set and put on my sons Honda 230f. Have already run them ~ 50 miles on the Spearhead Trail system in St. Paul, Va (great trail system w beautiful Mountain views) that ranges from steep climbs on soft dirt and rock to mud to rocky wet creek bottoms. The Starcross set performed very well gripping in that diverse set of conditions. Very pleased overall. Reminder: don’t forget (like I did) to get replacement tubes as well!
Nice tires, maybe next time I’ll buy the medium rather than soft as I think soft will wear too fast but the grip is excellent. I ride mud and Georgia clay a lot so these do a great job booking up. I think the fire roads and paved roads will kill them fast tho so next time medium but hopefully will last a good while anyway.
Perfect for sandy dirt tracks durable and lots of traction.
I am using the soft compound on the front, medium on the rear. Work great in most East coast trails. I've tried 4 different brands in the past 2 years and the Michelin work the best for the type of riding I do. Good life also.
Love these Michelin tires, have two pairs mounted on two sets of wheels. So I can change on the fly as conditions call for, soft and medium compounds.
These tires COMPLETELY changed the feel of my bike! Literally its a different bike, definitely worth 40 extra dollars for these instead of kendas

Question answered by robertUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year 4 months agoAnswer: A: Starcross 5 Tire Combo is a great option for you then. You will want to determine the compound or riding style you are primarily riding in and get the affiliated compound.

Question:Q: Michelin sizingQuestion asked Over 3 years agoAfter doing some research I've read that michelins sizing is somewhat different than competitors, as in an 80/100-21 Michelin would be slightly different than the same size of another brand. Is this true?

Question:Q: What is the difference between the medium and soft? Which one last longer and which one has more traction?Question asked Over 4 years ago
Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Expert MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 4 years agoAnswer: A: The Michelin Starcross 5 is available in hard, medium, soft and sand versions. The soft compound is designed and will handle better in the soft, muddy conditions. Mud-Phobic Bars between the central blocks on the MICHELIN StarCross 5 Soft rear maximize the cleaning capability and improve lateral grip in softer terrain. The Medium compound is going to track better and last longer in the intermediate terrain.
MICHELIN StarCross 5 Medium and Soft versions are more versatile and effective in a wider range of terrains and conditions compared to the previous range.
