People who ride high capacity motorcycles now have another option to choose from when it’s time for tyre change. Bridgestone unveiled the all-new Battlax Hypersport S21 radial. This tyre blends the proven wet weather technology and innovative new features, delivering impressive performance in all conditions and on all surfaces.
For the S21, wet weather performance has been borrowed from the proven Bridgestone S20 EVO tyre, while additional innovative features were developed to improve the dry performance and reduce wear rate.
A Bridgestone pre-show statement describes the S21 as a tyre that combines the “proven wet platform” of the S20 EVO with “innovative new features to upgrade dry performance.” It reports having engineered the S21 to give hypersport riders “the sort of handling they could only dream of until now.”
The development of the S21 was aided by the use of Bridgestone’s new Ultimate Eye (U-EYE) indoor testing facility. U-Eye helped to simulate tyre behaviour under different conditions and speeds. It also analysed the contact patch pressure distribution, enabling the engineers to choose the best combination of compound, tread, construction and profile.
