156 BATTLAX BT003 RACING STREET Battlax BT003 Racing Street - Ultra High Performance/Track-Day Radial Maximum grip from MotoGP compound technology Bridgestone has combined its top MotoGP construction design with its latest multi-compound technology from Straight And Cornering Technology (SACT) to produce a sport tire that gives high-level grip performance in braking, cornering and acceleration. The BT-003RS front tire has a Dual Tread Compound (DTC): a center compound for linear handling and longer wear life, flanked by a shoulder compound (New “Ultraction Compound”) to secure high grip and a strong contact feeling. The rear BT-003RS tire also features Bridgestone’s DTC technology. The center compound gives good stability and higher mileage, while the shoulder compound (New “Ultraction Compound”) transfers the engine power to the road with strong traction and provides strong side grip and a massive contact feeling at deep lean angles. The line holding feels almost like riding on a rail. The 140, 150 and 160 rears have Triple Tread Compound, as was first used in the Battlax BT-016 last year. Improved handling Front and rear construction is based on Bridgestone’s proven High Tensile Super Penetrated Cord (HTSPC) platform with steel Mono Spiral Belt (MSB). This onepiece construction enhances slide controllability and line-holding through corners, while providing good shock absorption. The increased compression stiffness it produces helps to maintain a uniform contact patch and stability at high speeds. Noticeable S-shaped grooves in the center tread area (for both front and rear) provide improved contact feel and precise cornering ability. Also, wide lug grooves placed from the center to the shoulder tread area enhance drainage and wet performance for practical road use. This is an excellent application for aggressive street riders and occasional track days. Motorcyclists in North America will find the new Battlax BT-003RS available in the replacement market in 3 front-wheel sizes and 6 rear-wheel sizes from mid-2009.
