Bridgestone Battlax S20/ S20 Evo Motorcycle Tyres
Many of the Bridgestone ranges are nomally called Batllax something or rather and hence the code for the range starts with the letters BT. Not this time. The Japanese brand has taken a different approach, so just like the R in R10 stands for Racing, the S in these S20's stands for SPORT. The S20 is their lastest sport tyre and they include both ZR and H rated tyres for the small bikes. You'll also notice a few sizes in the S20 Evo, this is Bridgestone slightly "tweeking" the compounds from the standard S20 which has enhanced the tyre for better wet grip. For this reason the S20 Evo and the standard S20 are still a perfect match and work together 100%. When developing and testing this range, Bridgestone asked for the help of a one World Champion Valentino Rossi, as the technology used in this tyre is based on the experience gain from the brands participation in MotoGP. This range would work fine in both road and track days. The front tyre has a 5 filament belt construction for a stiffer carcass which delivers better handling and more choice of racing line. The life of the tyres has also been improved compared to its predecessor.
