The aim of the Battlax S22 is to allow riders to experience the full extentof their bike’s performance on the road (and in fairness they’ll be morethan up to the odd track day as well!)
Bridgestone engineershave adopted a brand new tread pattern design for several reasons:
-Firstly they have increased the Land/Sea ratio in the shoulder area offering increased amounts of edge grip and reducing slippage towards theend of the contact area.
- Secondly the angle and alignment oftread grooves have been altered to re-distribute the working forces acrossthe tyre. This makes for light handling improved feedback and optimalwater drainage when riding in the wet.
The rear tyrecontinues to use Bridgestone’s unique 5-Layer Compound structure with thevery softest compound found right at the edge for maximum cornering grip.The use of 5LC makes for more progressive handling while retaining aharder central band for durability.
Chemists have worked ona brand new compound mix using fine silica molecules across the centralarea which has led to a 25% increase in the amount of silica touching theroad surface when compared with the S21. Silica is great for boosting griplevels in both cold and wet conditions.
