This is a press release from Bridgestone…
Bridgestone announced the launch of BattleCross E50 motorcycle tires for enduro competitions. BattleCross E50 tires launched in one front tire size and two rear tire sizes in the U.S. and Canada in January, and will launch in other regions in February 2019. BattleCross E50 tires are DOT approved and compliant with FIM regulations.
Leveraging the experience and technologies gained through the development of tires for off-road riding, BattleCross E50 tires from Bridgestone have been designed to deliver high traction and cornering performance on a variety of road surfaces, as is required in enduro competitions.
The tires employ the company’s proprietary Castle Block technology to ensure effective grip, even on slippery surfaces. A specialized edge, called a bunker, located at the base of the tread blocks enables BattleCross E50 tires to exert strong traction on soft surfaces. Bridgestone also used 3D simulations to optimize the shapes and positions of the tread blocks to deliver higher levels of cornering performance in the BattleCross E50 front tire and enhanced traction performance in the BattleCross E50 rear tire.
Surfaces such as stones or logs buried in soil and rain-drenched surfaces can be extremely slippery. The Castle Block profile incorporates secondary tread blocks that protrude from the conventional tread block profiles to increase total edge components and improve contact pressure on slippery surfaces for enhanced grip.
The bunker enables the edge portion of the base of the tread block to exert traction even when the block is submerged in a surface.
