Coming from the factory Dunlop tires on my YZ250FX, the Starcross 6 tires have made my bike even more fun to ride. Noticeable more traction on hard packed surfaces and in the soft stuff (to be expected coming from a 1/2 worn rear). Very forgiving when sliding the rear on corner exit. The bike was also more nimble - turned quicker / easier. Can't wait to take the bike out again...
I really liked the Starcross 5 series and I like the 6 even better. The front and rear were replaced as a set and I have confidence in these tires. They are very predictable in cornering, offer as good or better traction than the 5s and they wear at a significantly slower rate. They are excellent in harder terrain and even perform well in softer conditions. All around good tires.
Very awesome tyre, lots of traction and lean.
More tracktion and side bite on the rear. More steering feedback on the front. Medium/soft used front and rear. They might be firmer than the Starcross 5 range but that doesn't seem to translate to deflection unlike most other 3ply brands at normal pressures. The Starcross 6 is still 2 ply and they track straight and true in the woods. My new go to tyre.
1 West Virginia rocky GNCC and the tire was smoked! Traction was good but longevity was awful
