TECHNOLOGY

MS•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.

ULTIMATEYE

Visualization of the tire contact patch behavior with measurement and simulation technology. Supplies less slip area for good traction while riding and improves wear life.

CAP&BASE

The underlying layer controls tread stiffness, reinforcement and assists with bump absorption.

3CL (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.

3D CTDMx

3D CTDM is Bridgestone’s newest automated tire design technology. This leading edge 3D CTDM program enables Bridgestone to conduct dynamic, three-dimensional simulations and analysis of tire performance, in addition to finding optimum solutions at all lean angles.

HTSPC

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.

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.

OUTSIDE BEAD FILLER

The latest generation outside bead filler realizes the ideal sidewall profile analyzed by a finite element method by giving optimum force distribution and rigidity balance.

3LC+CAP&BASE

The CAP&BASE construction divides the shoulder of the compound of the tire into upper and lower sections. By using a high grip compound for the upper section of the shoulder, and a high stability abrasion resistant compound for the lower and central sections, this provides the desired combination of both performance and mileage.

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.

5LC (TRIPLE COMPOUND)

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.

Silica Rich

Silica Rich Compound provides enhanced gripping capability in wet conditions and low temperatures. It also provides a more consistent and longer lasting grip.

Silica Rich Ex

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