Now you can really go for it! New Battlax Racing R11.
Atlast the confidence to attack that record time lap afterlap.
Bridgestone the world’s number one tyre andrubber manufacturer1 sweeps in a new era for grooved racing tyres with thelaunch of Battlax Racing R11 designed to give supersport and hypersportriders the confidence on track to slash their lap times.
With anawesome mix of Bridgestone technology cultivated at the highest level ofmotorcycle racing combined with advanced new compound and constructionfeatures R11 delivers the highest performance in the grooved racing tyresegment. And all this without compromising Bridgestone’s racing DNAon consistency.
Feel the performance
Todevelop R11 Bridgestone took the current Battlax Racing R10 as thebenchmark and set sights on enhancing the contact feel of the track as thetyre performs allowing the rider to attack lap time records during therace lap after lap in a large operating range.
Grip onbraking and acceleration
The R11 package is based on a newvariable mono-spiral belt (V-MSB) construction in the front tyre whichproduces higher pressure on the contact patch and more cornering force.This gives the rider better grip and faster corner entry with more contactfeel and therefore more confidence.
The rear tyre construction usesan additional GP belt (proven in the Bridgestone V02 racing slick) on topof the V-MSB which is tuned for optimal deformation. The result is a reartyre with higher traction power consistent performance over the tyre lifeand more grip in all phases.
Moving to the tread design Bridgestoneengineers first analysed the abrasion angle under acceleration anddeformation in the braking and cornering phases. This enabled them todevelop innovative groove positioning for R11 which provides maximumrigidity in cornering and maximum contact in the acceleration phase whileensuri
