The BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 is Bridgestone’s premier tire for the modern street sport bike. It’s the BACK-TO-BACK winner of the prestigious Motorrad Magazine sport tire test. Starting where the S21 left off, the S22 has improved both the compounds and pattern design, to promote better handling in all conditions, without compromising wear.

-The ultimate tire for the modern street sport bike rider, with uncompromising performance.
-A new front and rear compound help improve the S22’s dry grip
-An updated front and rear pattern design, and an updated rear compound improve the overall wet grip*
-The S22 has Improved the handling response due to an increased pattern rigidity*
-All of these improved attributes are accomplished with no compromise on wear*

MONO SPIRAL BELT
MSB construction means that a continuous single strand is wrapped around the circumference of the tire. This one-piece construction eliminates overlapping of belts, seams, and joints. An MSB tire is lighter than conventional multi-cross belt construction, it also has more stability since it minimizes heat generation inside the tire and gives high shock absorption.

HIGH TENSILE SUPER PENETRATED CORD
Bridgestone was the very first motorcycle tire manufacturer to utilize 1X5 filament rubber insulated steel (MSB) in the manufacture of its motorcycle radial tires. This makes the tire more flexible, provides more stability without a reduction in shock absorption, and minimizes the generation of heat throughout the tire.

SILICA RICH EX
Performance in wet conditions is improved by increasing the amount of silica compared to conventional SILICA RICH.

RC POLYMER
RC Polymer technology optimizes the distribution of silica within the rubber compound and improves tread flexibility allowing greater contact with the road surface in both hot and cold conditions. The reduction in molecular friction also improves rolling resistance, therefore increasing fuel economy.

NANOPRO-TECH
NanoPro-Tech is the name of a technology that facilitates the realization of the required features in a tire by controlling the material microstructure through structural design at the molecular level. It is one of Bridgestone’s fundamental technologies.

3LC (DUAL COMPOUND)
Provides grip performance demanded in all riding modes. The center compound offers linear handling. The shoulder compound secures high grip and solid contact feel.

5LC (REAR ONLY)
Offers ideal grip performance demanded in all riding modes. The center compound provides good stability. The shoulder compound transfers engine power to the road with strong traction. The edge compound offers strong side grip and solid contact feel at deep lean angles.
