The Bridgestone BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T30 is a premium brand steeped in technology refined through the company's development of MotoGP race tires, and is designed for use on medium- to large-size motorcycles. Designed for smooth handling and rider enjoyment, the series will feature new patterns and a new compound. GT spec (heavy vehicle specialized tuning specs) front tires developed with a structure differing from standard product patterns. The rear tires also differ in structure in much the same way. For large-size touring motorcycles and other heavy-duty models using pannier cases (saddlebag-like carrying cases placed over sides of motorcycles), the result is improved handling, lightness and loading stability. The tires are designed for optimum road "hugging" properties and rigidity, together with enhanced lightness, "line" tracing, dry grip and other handling characteristics.
The BATTLAX series of on-road motorcycle tires is used in the FIM Road Racing World Championship MotoGP Class for which Bridgestone is an official supplier. The BATTLAX series features an extensive lineup that includes touring to racing patterns for use on small to large-size motorcycles.
Through the BATTLAX series and the company's other extensive lineup of motorcycle tires, Bridgestone continues to provide quality high performance motorcycle tires to the steadily growing ranks of riders.
Bridgestone's extensive experience in the high performance sport of MotoGP led to the development of RC polymers (MC tire use), a compound that builds on the company's exclusive "NanoPro-Tech" technology. "NanoPro-Tech" is the collective name for the technology of working through molecular structure design and other means to exercise control over the fine structure of materials and generate required properties. It is an exclusive Bridgestone technology. This revolutionary technology delivers improved grip and performance in actual use temperature applications.
New Patterns Adopted on Front and Rear Tires - Use of new patterns realizes outstanding handling and grip performance.
-Front crossed t-groove optimizes block rigidity, maintains optimum road hugging area at deep lean angles for optimal handling.
-Rear curved groove optimizes block rigidity, maintains optimum road hugging area at deep lean angles for increased grip.
-Rear lower groove volume at the edges optimizes block rigidity improving grip at deep lean angles.
