The Michelin Pilot SX and Pilot SX Slick BMX Racing tires share a very similar tread pattern to one another, with the Slick option featuring a much shallower tread depth for reduced rolling resistance. It is said to be suitable for racing on hard tracks or in warmer temperatures.

The Michelin Pilot SX has the deeper tread pattern, more suited to racing softer tracks in colder climes. The bigger lugs mean it offers extra grip while cornering, particularly on hard-packed or dusty terrain.
