Bridgestone’s top two-wheel tyretechnologies
Using the highest quality materials andBridgestone’s advanced tyre development technologies Battlecruise H50 lets you connect fully with the road giving yousmooth easy handling great grip on wet and dry and a long treadlife.
To deliver on a promise as big as this Bridgestoneturned to its proprietary Ultimate-EYE (U-EYE) technology. U-EYEtesting enables our engineers to see exactly how a tyre behaves incontact with the road so that we can optimise thedesign.
Specifically U-EYE gives us a very detailedpicture of the contact patch where rubber meets road and theresulting pressure distribution at various speeds loads and slipangles on wet and dry. Battlecruise H50 is only the second motorcycletyre to benefit from U-EYE (Battlax Hypersport S21 was thefirst).
With H50 on the front your heavy V-Twin needsonly a light touch through the corners. Thanks to U-EYE BattlecruiseH50 puts a larger contact patch on the tarmac and creates more uniformcontact-pressure distribution for easier handling and more precisecornering. Bridgestone track testing shows that the force acting onthe handlebar with Battlecruise H50 is much lower than with comparabletyres.
V-Twinriders can also lay down the kilometres with H50; our goal is to giveyou a tyre with a much longer wear life than other big-name brands. Toachieve this high mileage Bridgestone enlarged the crown profile ofthe rear tyre and developed a new tread compound.
And while youare eating up the kilometres on those long trips you can enjoy thesumptuous vibration damping and shock absorption of the H50 achievedby optimising the vertical stiffness of the front tyre for a smootheasy ride.
