BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T31
The Bridgestone BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T31 (T31) is the flagship model for the sport touring category. This tire maintains the stability and wear life performance of its predecessor, the BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T30EVO (T30EVO), while also offering improved wet performance and riding comfort. The T31 decreases braking distances on wet roads and delivers higher cornering grip to contribute safety trip in unpredictable weather.
The new T31 tire’s tread pattern features increased groove ratios on the shoulder of the tire to allow for better water displacement and improved wet performance. The middle of the tire has a reduced groove ratio to contribute to increased block rigidity for shorter braking distance under wet conditions.
The T31 tire features a new tread compound that offers improved Silica dispersion at the molecular level, giving the tire increased rubber flexibility. These innovations allow the T31 tire to better grip roads when weight is applied while also making it easier for the rubber molecules to move, generating energy loss that further increases grip. Bridgestone also took steps to improve grip under low temperature conditions, allowing the tires to achieve strong grip on wet surfaces.
