That probably means it has enough silica in it this time around to work like winter tires or at least qualify. I'm guessing Michelin is going in deep with the extra silica as a way to "grip" the dirt (kinda like Velcro) and still produce a street tire in performance.

They obviously know how to produce amazing dirt tires, so i'm still hopping this evolution of the tire towards street bias signals a more aggressive ADV style of tire in the wings.
