JUST ARRIVED FOR 2018
Provide the sport-touring riders the confidence through maximum
contact feel and feedback in order to make them feel safe and enjoy
every ride with the new Battlax Sport-Touring T31. Make T31 outstanding
in wet conditions together with excellent handling performance.
• Upgrade the wet grip/handling performance overall with a focus in low
• High feedback and contact feel of the road surface trough the tyre.
• Enhance the neutrality and lightness in handling performance.
• Increase the camber thrust forces.
• No sacrifice on wear life.
• Pattern design – linked to water drainage and block deformation.
• Compounding and construction (3LC + Cap and Base) – linked to feel
and grip + Stability.
• Upgrading contact patch and adhesion/slip area.
Main focus on the water drainage with balance between deformation and rigidity :
- 1) Increased SEA/LAND ratio at shoulder area.
- 2) Small decreased SEA/LAND ratio at centre area.
- 3) High angle groove position at centre area.
Main focus on the water drainage with keeping high speed stability in mind :
- 4) Increased SEA/LAND ratio at shoulder area.
- 5) Reduced SEA/LAND ratio at centre part.
- 6) Adjusted groove angle generating maximum camber thrust.
