Sid Bailey - May 2, 2018
Hello Sid, I have just pulled 4 of these tires for you. Two of the BT015M and Two of the BT016 Pro and all 4 tires I pulled were manufactured in 2016. The 13 week of 16, 15 week of 16, 26 week of 16 and 47 week of 16. Please note that our tires are stored in a climate controlled warehouse and the tire warranty begins when the tire is purchased.

Tire Compound:

  • 3 Layer Compound (3LC) provides grip performance demanded in all riding modes
  • Center compound results in good stability and wear life
  • Shoulder compound provides grip and bump absorption
  • Silica Rich: Silica enhanced compound provides more consistent and longer lasting grip with enhanced grip in wet conditions and low temperatures
  • RC Polymer: A specific Nano Pro-Tech butadiene rubber that is specifically designed to react with silica, improving tread flexibility to provide enhanced wet traction and long wear life
  • Nano Pro-Tech: Is a Bridgestone proprietary technology that controls the interaction between polymer, filler materials (carbon black, silica) and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level

Tire Construction:

  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction: A continuous single strand of cord is wrapped around the circumference and serves as a belt of a tire, eliminating overlapping of belts, seams, and joints
  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction makes the tire lighter than conventional multi cross belt construction, has more stability since it minimizes heat generation inside the tire, and gives high shock absorption
  • High Tensile Super Penetrated Cord (HTSPC): Features a 1X5 filament, rubber insulated steel Mono-Spiral Belt allowing more flexibility than other types of the steel used by competitors, reduces heat generation, and provides stability without deteriorating shock absorption
  • Steel belt construction provides good bump absorption, grip and stability during high speed riding

Tread Pattern:

  • Rear tire has high negative ratio to enhance cornering grip and cornering stability
  • L shaped grooves enhance bump absorption and rear-end steering
  • Grooves do not cross tread center area providing both wet performance and strong traction. High speed durability is also maximized
  • 6% negative ratio maximizes dry grip and improves wear life

Test Results vs Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Hypersport Radial Tires:

  • Significant improvement of the cornering performance
  • Significant improvement of stability and straight line handling
  • Performance level in all wet conditions are improved
  • Maintains performance level through the complete tire life
