- Fitment Data
In terms of construction, the Bridgestone Battlax RS10 has been revised to upgrade cornering, add stability and provide a smoother ride. The front tire’s mono-spiral belt is made with stiffer steel which improves the rigidity of the tread area. The rear tire also has a softer sidewall construction for a smoother ride and is 650 grams lighter than the RS10 predecessor (BT003 Racing Street), which reduces the gyro effect, making leans easier in corners. From compound side the rear tire adopts a cap and base layer compound in order to reinforce the stiffness of the tread. Higher levels of grip over a wider temperature range are added by the use of a newly-developed compound based on Bridgestone’s acclaimed VO2 racing slick tire derivate from MotoGP acknowledgements, providing riders with superior handling and line-tracing precision. The RS10 profile was also revised, giving the tire a larger contact area in mid to high-angle leans, producing better grip. This improvement gives the rider a more confident feeling through corners.
