Bridgestone, the world's largest tire and rubber manufacturer 1 , has announced the launch of Battlax Adventure A41. Motorcycle tires will be fitted as original equipment for the BMW R1200GS and BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle.
"Bridgestone has developed the Battlax Adventure A41 with an adventurous spirit. They wanted to create a tire that would give full confidence and encourage motorcyclists to pursue adventures wherever they may be. The A41 is designed for all driving conditions,"said Nico Tay, head of the European Motorcycle Sector, Bridgestone Europe. "This is a tire that will make you travel, no matter the weather, and enjoy an indescribable experience."
This overall performance is achieved through design elements. Engineers have used the Bridgestone Mono Spiral Belt technology to reduce tire weight, increase shock absorption and improve driving comfort. The new pattern with large blocks in the center of the rear tire and the low SEA / LAND ratio in the center of the front tire provide stability even at high speed under full load conditions. In addition to exceptional stability, the new model also provides more inspiring grip on straight and curved tracks without affecting the tire's wear-resistance.
In an effort to increase driving confidence in wet conditions, Bridgestone increased maximum water run-off by increasing the SEA / LAND ratio in the tire shoulders.
As a universal and high-tech tire with excellent stability, Bridgestone is extremely pleased with the Battlax Adventure A41 but they are not the only ones: BMW Motorrad has approved the A41 as the original equipment for the iconic R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure.
"We are proud to have chosen to provide tires for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure,"said Niko Tai. "Taking part in this project with R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure, some of the world's most famous motorcycles, is a unique honor for us. This shows the quality of our products, our leadership in tire development technology and the power of long-term alliance with BMW Motorrad, which dates back to 1995. We look forward to supporting BMW Motorrad in their next exciting challenges."
And that's not all. BMW Motorrad has already approved the Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 as the original equipment of the brand new BMW F750GS and F850GS.
The Battlax Adventure A41 is also available on the market. Made in 16 sizes, the tire will certainly meet the needs of anyone looking for adventure.
