The latest evolution of the BT-016 is here, the Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro Motorcycle Tyre is a true evolution of real MotoGP technology that is readily available to all.

  • Excellent mileage and durability
  • High-speed performance and reliable handling
  • Improvements in grip, rotational stability and high speed performance

Utilising Bridgestone’s cutting edge MotoGP technology, the latest evolution of the BT-016 Pro features a new compound containing a combination of two special components, Silica Rich Ex and RC Polymer. It is worth noting that the two compounds used in this tyre, Polymer and Silica, are usually not compatible, however Bridgestone have been able to promote a link between them which has been developed using their own key technology, Nano-Pro Tech which contributes to the improvement of wet performance, and improving tyre longevity and reducing performance ‘drop-off’.

Bridgestone’s multi-layer compound construction on the ‘BT-016 Pro’ delivers noticeably better contact feel, feedback, stability and grip. With both the front and rear tyres featuring this three-layer compound (3LC), their harder centre compound results in good stability and longevity, which is flanked either side by a softer shoulder compound to provide high levels of grip and bump absorption. The improved contact patch at all lean angles provides masses of traction allowing you to transfer the bikes power to the road, whether your straight lining or exiting corners a high speed.

The Battlax BT-016 Pro Motorcycle Tyre features high tensile super penetrated cord (HTSPC) – this is a Steel cord material comprised of individually rubber insulated inner filaments with high thermal conductivity to enhance heat transfer and reduce the risk of blowout. An added benefit of this feature is that moisture does not accumulate between filaments, reducing the chance of oxidation. HTSPC promotes high speed stability and durability of the tyre as a whole, as well as grip performance and superior shock absorption. The tyre also has a Mono-Spiral Belt – lightweight and durable cords are wrapped around the circumference to provide a smooth grip feeling. This contributes to a high performance tyre with weight reduction, improvement in grip, rotational stability, high speed performance and excellent damping effect.

The tread pattern features ‘s’ shaped diagonal grooves for light handling, rich feedback and good wet weather performance. The whole package is designed to add mileage for commuters as well as grip for fast road riders and track day thrill seekers.
