Bridgestone Launches New Sports Radial Motorcycle Tires

Bridgestone Corporation announced the launch of the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22, a new sports radial motorcycle tire for street use that will be part of its BATTLAX line of motorcycle tires.

Bridgestone Corporation announced the launch of the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22, a new sports radial motorcycle tire for street use that will be part of its BATTLAX line of motorcycle tires.

BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tires will be available in one front tire size and five rear tire sizes when released in the U.S. and Canada in January 2019 and in other regions in February 2019.

The BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tire is the successor to the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S21 tire,
which is featured as original equipment on numerous sports motorcycles and is a top replacement
tire choice for countless riders. Compared to the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S21 tire, the BATTLAX
HYPERSPORT S22 tire boasts improved dry grip and lightness coupled with sufficient wet
performance. These features provide sport bike riders peace of mind when the weather suddenly
deteriorates or when driving on wet surfaces.

To enhance cornering on rainy days, the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tire features an increased
land-sea ratio on the tire’s shoulder in comparison to the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S21 tire, and
pattern rigidity has been optimized. These features contribute to improved wet performance and
handling lightness.

In designing the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tire, steps were taken to optimize the resin component in order to develop a new compound that can function across a wide range of temperature conditions, including lower temperatures. This allows the tire to deliver higher grip on dry surfaces.

The center compound of BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 rear tires utilizes silica comprised of particles that are smaller than those found in conventional tires to increase the area of the silica in the contact patch, the portion of a tire that makes contact with road surfaces. This composition enables the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tire to better grip the road in wet conditions.
