Bridgestone’s top two-wheel tyre technologies
Using the highest quality materials and Bridgestone’s advanced tyre development technologies, Battlecruise H50 lets you connect fully with the road, giving you smooth easy handling, great grip on wet and dry, and a long tread life.
To deliver on a promise as big as this, Bridgestone turned to its proprietary Ultimate-EYE (U-EYE) technology. U-EYE testing enables our engineers to see exactly how a tyre behaves in contact with the road, so that we can optimise the design.
Specifically U-EYE gives us a very detailed picture of the contact patch, where rubber meets road, and the resulting pressure distribution at various speeds, loads and slip angles on wet and dry. Battlecruise H50 is only the second motorcycle tyre to benefit from U-EYE (Battlax Hypersport S21 was the first).
Higher cornering power
With H50 on the front, your heavy V-Twin needs only a light touch through the corners. Thanks to U-EYE, Battlecruise H50 puts a larger contact patch on the tarmac and creates more uniform contact-pressure distribution, for easier handling and more precise cornering. Bridgestone track testing shows that the force acting on the handlebar with Battlecruise H50 is much lower than with comparable tyres.
V-Twin riders can also lay down the kilometres with H50; our goal is to give you a tyre with a much longer wear life than other big-name brands. To achieve this high mileage Bridgestone enlarged the crown profile of the rear tyre and developed a new tread compound.
And while you are eating up the kilometres on those long trips, you can enjoy the sumptuous vibration damping and shock absorption of the H50, achieved by optimising the vertical stiffness of the front tyre, for a smooth easy ride.
