Bridgestone's top two-wheel tyre technologies
Using thehighest quality materials and Bridgestone's advanced tyre developmenttechnologies Battlecruise H50 lets you connect fully with the road givingyou smooth easy handling great grip on wet and dry and a long treadlife.
To deliver on a promise as big as this Bridgestone turned toits proprietary Ultimate-EYE (U-EYE) technology. U-EYE testing enables ourengineers to see exactly how a tyre behaves in contact with the road sothat we can optimise the design.
Specifically U-EYE gives us a verydetailed picture of the contact patch where rubber meets road and theresulting pressure distribution at various speeds loads and slip angles onwet and dry. Battlecruise H50 is only the second motorcycle tyre to benefitfrom U-EYE (Battlax Hypersport S21 was the first).
With H50 on the front your heavy V-Twin needs onlya light touch through the corners. Thanks to U-EYE Battlecruise H50 puts alarger 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 on thehandlebar with Battlecruise H50 is much lower than with comparabletyres.
V-Twin riders can also lay downthe kilometres with H50; our goal is to give you a tyre with a much longerwear life than other big-name brands. To achieve this high mileageBridgestone enlarged the crown profile of the rear tyre and developed a newtread compound.
And while you are eating up the kilometres on thoselong trips you can enjoy the sumptuous vibration damping and shockabsorption of the H50 achieved by optimising the vertical stiffness of thefront tyre for a smooth easy ride.
