Technology at the cutting edge of exceptional grip
The MICHELIN XST featured on Michelin motorcycle tyres delivers enhanced grip on wet roads thanks to the technology’s patented sipes and reservoirs which increase the tyre’s water clearance capacity. In the case of scooter tyres, a gradual increase in the number of full depth sipes as the vehicle leans into a corner allows the tyre to break through the surface film of water.

MICHELIN PST Progressive Sipe Technology is the perfect fit for XST X-Sipe Technology, road and sports bikes. Our engineers have adapted the technology to the demands of driving powerful scooters of 125cc and more. In town, the precision and responsiveness of the grip should be the best. PST offers an exclusive, patented structure of cross sipes which literally cut through bodies of water giving exceptional grip at all times.
With less than 5% sea to land ratio (the ratio of grooves as a percentage of the tread surface area) it is close to a race slick. The amount of rubber in contact with the ground is important for grip, allowing lean angles of up to 60°.
