First to adopt the “GP BELT”, a direct line of MotoGP, to commercial tires.Our flag ship model “RACING BATTLAX V02” with strong gripping strength and a long wear life has been raised to a higher dimension. In the previous V01 product, the area which came in contact with the ground had lower ground contact pressure when cornering. This new construction GP-BELT equalizes ground contact pressure and enlarges the ground contact surface area contributing to a better grip. Improved gripping performance when cornering and controlled wear have been realized. By controlling wear, a softer compound can be used for GP-BELT. This improves gripping performance for all temperature ranges.
