Overview of Bridgestone Battlax T31 Sport Touring Tire

The Bridgestone BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T31 (T31) is the flagship model for the sport touring category. This tire maintains the stability and wear life performance of its predecessor, the BATTLAX SPORT TOURING T30EVO (T30EVO), while also offering improved wet performance and riding comfort. The T31 decreases braking distances on wet roads and delivers higher cornering grip to contribute safety trip in unpredictable weather.

The new T31 tire’s tread pattern features increased groove ratios on the shoulder of the tire to allow for better water displacement and improved wet performance. The middle of the tire has a reduced groove ratio to contribute to increased block rigidity for shorter braking distance under wet conditions.

  • Increase groove ratio at shoulder part. Better wet performance due to improved water drainage
  • Reduce groove ratio on middle part of the tread. Increased block rigidity gives shorter braking distance in wet condition
  • High angle grooves arranged on middle part. Tread rigidity also be enhanced thus handling response in dry condition is improved
  • Optimized groove angle at middle part. It give larger contact patch thus handling response in dry condition is improved

The T31 tire features a new tread compound that offers improved Silica dispersion at the molecular level, giving the tire increased rubber flexibility. These innovations allow the T31 tire to better grip roads when weight is applied while also making it easier for the rubber molecules to move, generating energy loss that further increases grip. Bridgestone also took steps to improve grip under low temperature conditions, allowing the tires to achieve strong grip on wet surfaces.

Bridgestone has employed 3LC (dual tread compound) and CAP&BASE construction on the rear tire, this gives the tire increased rigidity in the tread shoulder helping the T31 tire to maintain excellent cornering stability.

Bridgestone also has utilized its ULTIMAT EYE™ measurement technology to visualize the dynamic movement of tires when driving. Based on these measurements, Bridgestone has increased the adhesive area in the forward contact patch in comparison to the T30EVO tire and reduced the slippage area in the rearward contact patch. These changes contribute to improved wet cornering grip and increased dry handling response.

The front is a single compound so it squares off quick.I had almost had a serious crash due to high speed wobble and I think the front tire is what caused it.1999 Honda ST1100
