Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20 Ultra-High Performance Radial Rear Tire - Details

  • Ultra-high performance radials designed to achieve high handling performance and easier cornering using tread patterns and construction technology from MotoGP
  • Quick warm-up, even in low temperatures, and works well in cool conditions
  • Improved grip in a wider range of temperatures, at tire warm-up, and when wet, compared to Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro tires
  • Optimized tread compounds improve dry handling with high mileage maintained
  • Performance is maintained throughout the life of the tire
  • Achieves a higher level of wet performance than Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro tires, due to the tread patterns and rubber compounds
  • Mono-Spiral Belt, Silica Rich EX, RC Polymer, and Nano Pro-Tech technologies used to achieve high levels of all-around sport bike performance
  • This motorcycle tire is tubeless
  • These sport touring motorcycle tires are W rated for speeds up to 168 mph


Tire Compounds:

  • Dual Compound (3LC) is used for both front and rear tires
  • 3LC (3 Layer Compound) provides grip performance demanded in every aspect and all riding modes
  • Center compound offers linear handling, while the shoulder compound secures high grip and solid contact feeling
  • Silica Rich EX: Increased Silica composition ratio higher than Silica Rich to provide solid wet performance
  • RC Polymer: A specific Nano Pro-Tech butadiene rubber that is specifically designed to react with silica, improving tread flexibility to provide enhanced wet traction and long wear life
  • Nano Pro-Tech: Is a Bridgestone proprietary technology that controls the interaction between polymer, filler materials (carbon black, silica) and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level
  • High grip levels from rubber compounds work in a wider range of temperatures


Tire Construction:

  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction: A continuous single strand of cord is wrapped around the circumference and serves as a belt of a tire, eliminating overlapping of belts, seams, and joints
  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction makes the tire lighter than conventional multi cross belt construction, has more stability since it minimizes heat generation inside the tire, and gives high shock absorption
  • High Tensile Super Penetrated Cord (HTSPC): Features a 1X5 filament, rubber insulated steel Mono-Spiral Belt allowing more flexibility than other types of the steel used by competitors, reduces heat generation, and provides stability without deteriorating shock absorption
  • Steel belt construction provides good bump absorption, grip and stability during high speed riding


Tread Pattern:

  • Wider tread grooves improve cornering as well as wet and dry grip
  • Straight center grooves improve cornering at low lean angles, especially at turn-in
  • Improved initial grip by maintaining contact area at the all lean angles
  • Contact patch is optimized to improve contact with the road


Test Results vs Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro Hypersport Radial Tires:

  • Achieved high cornering stability by improving rear and front grip
  • Achieved sportier handling
  • Achieved wet weather stability by improving grip
  • Achieved better control in all wet weather conditions

Great Tire

I buy Bridgestone S20's for my S1000RR. The tire is immediately at sticky condition I always feel safe in the corners and I am using the whole tread till the profile is gone. I normally get 1500 miles on the rear tire and the front can get 500 or 800 more. I like it most during the autumn to spring season. In the summer I go to the Metzeler K3 Interact. Great tires for a fair price and also a good choice for wet weather.

S20's

Purchased a set last year for my 06 Yamaha FZ1 - tires have performed extremely well. They seem to be wearing well but really the great thing is the handling. The bike handles better than ever. I used Avon Storms for years on all my bikes and then switched to Pirelli Angel GT - but now I'm switching my bikes to S20s. They're putting a set on my 08 KTM SuperDuke today that I got from Chaparral and I ordered another set for later this week to go on my 11 Honda CB1000R. Plus since I always change both tires at every change I've found with Chaparral's price I'm saving $100-$150 a set over the Avons and Pirellis. The last tires I had that performed this well were Michelin Power Pilots but I only got 2K miles out of them and I already have double that on the FZ1 set of S20s.
