Designed to maximize traction with Michelin’s new rear rubber mixture that improves durability by at least 25-30% over Michelin’s S12 and M12 tire. This tire’s larger-diameter beads and thicker bead filler area help make sidewalls more rigid than before, which improves feedback. Additional thin casing ply under the tread helps improve traction and feel, and speeds warm-up time. Soft to intermediate terrain tires feature tall, narrow knobs for mud penetration; front knobs turned 45° for mud evacuation.

The best all around tire I've ever used!
By Slim Tim
from Jackson, MI
This is the tire of choice for those of us who ride a variety of terrain without the need for constantly changing out tires. Great feel and feedback, great wear characteristics, what more could you want?
Great tire best i have run
By rides like wind
Great tire, excellent at soft dusty conditions will not find a better tire. at hard pack and rock just drop it down to lower pressures, around 8 or so and it will flex and work amazing there as well
Michelin S12XC Motorcycle Tire
By Sunny Jim
from Upstate New York
Yet to be ridden, but came highly recommended by friends. Difficult to mount. Finally had to leave the tire on a sunny windowsill all day long to manage it.
