First to adopt the “GP BELT”, a direct line of MotoGP, to commercial tires. Our flag ship model “RACING BATTLAX V02”
with strong gripping strength and a long wear life has been raised to a higher dimension. In the previous V01 product, the area which came in contact with the ground had lower ground contact pressure when cornering. This new construction GP-BELT equalizes ground contact pressure and enlarges the ground contact surface area contributing to a better grip. Improved gripping performance when cornering and controlled wear have been realized.
No need to fear a wet race weekend or a rainy track day, enjoy it on Bridgestone’s new Battlax Racing wet tyre!
WINNER IN THE WET: Race on Battlax W01 and you’re racing on last season’s hot Bridgestone MotoGP™ pattern technology. An unfair advantage in the wet that will take you to the top of the podium.
CONFIDENT GRIP: W01 gives you the feedback and grip to feel totally confident at any lean angle even in the wettest conditions.
SUPERB DRAINAGE: Wet? What wet? You’ll wonder where the wet went when you race on W01. The groove drainage and pattern design channel water away from the contact patch faster than ever.
TOP HANDLING AND PRECISION: Optimization of rigidity between front and rear tyres gives ideal pattern deformation for top handling of today’s powerful race bikes.
QUICKER WARM-UP: Bridgestone tests show that W01 will help you clock better average lap times and faster “best laps” than its predecessor, right from the start!
