Bridgestone announced that its BATTLECROSS X30 tires will be original equipment on Suzuki’s new RM-Z450 Motocross motorcycle announced June 29, 2017. The RM-Z450 will be Suzuki’s category flagship motorcycle, and Bridgestone BATTLECROSS X30 tires contribute to enhancing the traction of the new model.
The BATTLECROSS X30 is a high performance tire specialized for medium terrain on the race course, and its technologies were developed and refined across multiple years of motocross racing. It applies our original technology Castle Block on the tire surface to improve the grip on the motocross roads.
Surfaces such as earth laid on top of hard soil or surfaces that have been sprayed with water during the race interval can be extremely slippery. The Castle Block profile incorporates secondary blocks that project from the regular block profiles to increase total edge components and improve contact pressure on slippery surfaces.
