Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20 Front Tires

The S20, which incorporates the innovative technologies developed for MotoGP tires, is one of Bridgestone's sport radial premium brand products. Using new patterns and new compounds, in the S20 Bridgestone offers durability and long wear life while improving grip performance at both high temperatures and low temperatures, such as immediately after start and in wet conditions. Also, by optimizing the tire structure in the S20, Bridgestone was able to increase the running contact pressure and contact surface and focus on high performance in dry conditions and stable handling.

The BATTLAX series is Bridgestone's premium brand of on-road motorcycle tires. The top of the line of the BATTLAX tires are the MotoGP class tires used in the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) road race series, for which Bridgestone is the official tire supplier. Bridgestone offers a wide range of BATTLAX tires, from touring to racing and from small motorcycles to large motorcycles.

Principal technologies and product features:

  • New Pattern: Through the optimization of groove positioning and the use of wide grooves, the tire offers both comfortable handling and improved grip performance in dry and wet conditions.
  • New Compound: Continued use of NanoPro-Tech, RC Polymer (for motorcycle tires). All aspects of compound composition were reevaluated, and as a result Bridgestone was able to maintain long wear life while achieving high grip performance in a wide range of temperature conditions, from high to low.
  • 3LC (3 Layer Compound) Optimized Tread Pattern Design: By optimizing tread pattern design for the new compound, Bridgestone has achieved high levels of both wear life and grip performance.


  • Dual Compound (3LC) is used for both front and rear tires
  • Contact patch is optimized to improve contact with the road
  • Performance is maintained throughout the life of the tire
  • Better wet performance than BT-016 PRO due to new pattern and compound
  • Technologies used include: Mono-Spiral Belt, Silica Rich EX, RC Polymer and Nano Pro-Tech to achieve high levels of all-around sport bike performance

Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20 Front Tire 4.8 5 13 13
Great tire. Good Value. Medium service life. I wrote a similar review for the Rear version of this tire. I used these on my 1997 VFR750f in 70 profile front and rear. OEM is 60 profile, but I've had no problems riding with 70. Excellent grip even on cold and wet roads. Siping isn't too deep but I had no problems even in heavy rain. I kind of like riding in the rain and don't hold back much. They are finished after 5k miles, with maybe a hundred miles on gravel roads. I'm getting down to the inner rubber in the rear center and will ride them for another week or two until I have a chance to mount new buns. They wore very nicely and even now have kept their round profile front and rear, rather than going triangular in the front and square in the rear as some other brands have done for me on this bike. Front and rear tires wore at about the same rate which is also good. I highly recomend this tire for the old VFR. Now if they could only make it go 15k miles.... Nothing bad to say. May 1, 2015
Great Grip! battlax bt 16 before this s20.. and this new ones have more grip, just make sure to align the marks and balance the tire. definitely better! i hope more life too! February 2, 2015
Great Tires, Great Grip, Decent wear. Got 6000 miles out of my stock set on my 2013 GSXR1000 with aggressive street riding, no burnouts, not many curves around here. Heat up quick and never lose traction. January 15, 2015
Great tire! I've only put about 500 miles on this new tire, but so far it's great! Heats up quickly in cold weather. Used them in Chicago at ~40F and the tires have great traction and heat up quickly. January 5, 2015
Feels great, happy with purchase. I had much older BT-57 Battleaxs and upgrading to the S20 made a huge difference in how the bike feels, I'm much more confident on it now. Moto GP approved after all. August 4, 2014
Great tire. Mounted this tire on my Ducati 696 monster. Great grip (dry road - I did not used it in the rain yet). Very smooth transition between rolling band and side of the tire when turning. June 9, 2014
great tire performance for the money.. great tire handling, on dry, wet and cold days.... tire has ben put to he test by me... tire's heat up fairly quickly for traction...bikelooks good with the matching set... December 9, 2013
