Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 Front Tires

The Battlax T30 is the new reference for relaxed, touring performance, letting you rediscover the joy of riding. Featuring quick response, tight handling and support for high lean angles make it even easier to hold your line on both wet and dry surfaces. High-speed cruising, sports-like grip and precision steering response: all the right ingredients for genuine, consistent performance. Plus, outstanding stability, very good bump absorption and low-noise cruise performance combine for the ultimate riding experience.

Features:

  • Single compound
  • Light weight carcass reduces gyro effect and weight on the front offering a lighter feel, ability to hold rider's chosen line and predictable handling
  • Front T-Cross shaped Groove provides better contact due to reduced tread stiffness
  • Slanted groove towards the shoulder provides higher block stiffness due to consistent input force when cornering
  • Swirled shape groove offers a combination of round and straight elements which improves contact without losing block stiffness
  • Semi-slick pattern shoulder with fewer grooves provides a larger contact patch, higher block stiffness and confidence to the rider when cornering
  • Dry handling is significantly improved over the BT023
  • Some sizes available in GT Spec
  • GT Spec tires provide improved handling and stability for heavier, sport touring bikes and feature a slightly modified tread pattern on front and stiffer construction on rear

PR4 quality for less $$$ I put a set of these (GT spec) on my 2009 Concours14 after researching several different tires including Michelin PR4's. After nearly 10,000 miles of mixed riding including a trip from Florida to Canada via the Dragon and Blue Ridge Parkway, I can definitely say I got my money's worth. The harder center compound of the rear holds up well on the interstate and the medium side compound, together with the soft compound front tire, inspire confidence even while throwing around a big ST loaded with luggage. I have not ridden the PR4's so the only comparison I can make is I got both the front and rear Bridgestones for the price of the rear Michelin. Money well spent. July 28, 2015
Excellent all-around sport touring tire I've not had the tire long enough to comment on mileage however so far I am nothing but impressed. Smooth ride, excellent grip, lot's of confidence. What more can you expect? June 8, 2015
Great tire for my boxer ! My BMW boxer does better with single compound front tires like this T30. This is my third set of Bridgestone Battlaxes and I get good mileage, cornering feel and smooth ride with them. I tour with these, the rears will square off from all the interstate miles, but still do well in the corners. Wet grip has been good, I can continue to motor on, no matter the weather. June 1, 2015
Bye Bye PR-4 Hello T-30 I just put 3K km on a set of the GT version and they are the best tires I've had on my 1250 Bandit. Much better than PR 4 GT's I just took off. Wear is excellent and no chicken strips. These tires turn in very easily and my bike has never handled this good.This will be my new go to tire if the wear is there. June 11, 2015
Great tire so far!!! I recently bought a set of these tires to replace the old worn out tires that were on the bike when I bought it. What a great purchase!!! After speaking with the gear gurus here at RevZilla and explaining the usage, they pointed me to these. I now have about 2,000 miles on these tires. The center stripe is hard so it wears very little which is great for those commuter days, however the shoulders are soft and sticky which inspires confidence when carving the canyons and really getting the bike leaned over (I have wear inside 1/2" from the lip of the tire) and the tires hold the road nicely. I've ridden in the rain a few times (not my favorite) but these tires gave me enough confidence knowing I was securely planted on the road. Water is ejected nicely and no slides or hydroplaning happened even on the hilly, twisty road. To summarize--- these tires are a great commuter tire with sticky shoulders that inspires confidence when leaning the bike over. Great for the commuter/weekend warrior!!! June 1, 2015
Great tire so far! I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because I haven't put very many miles on it yet so I can't speak to it's long term reliability. So far it's a great tire! I couldn't believe the immediate difference in the feel of my bike. My previous tire (Shinko) was pretty bald before I changed it to this one, so perhaps that has something to do with the drastic improvement. Never the less, the feel, traction and handling are awesome! Of Course Revzilla matched a competitor's price AND provided their usual excellent customer service assistance with quick delivery. This makes them #1 in my book! May 25, 2015
Great tires this is my second set and I love Em Good wear, great wet grip even better dry grip, just all around good tires for the ST1100 I ride year round to and from work In Georgia and several trips to the mountains, like I said all around good tire for any type of riding. May 20, 2015
Great Tire This is my first tire purchase, but compared to the stock Dunlop D222 Sportmax (Honda CBR500r OEM model), these are fantastic. The turn in is significantly faster and more natural feeling. I have 500 miles on them and they don't look worn. Stability in the corners is great and the shoulders feel very confidence inspiring. These seem lighter than the OEMs and also not as wide. I am not saying that is a bad thing, just accurate size as the Dunlop's measured past the size. I didn't rate them as 5 star because this is my second set of tires and my experience is limited. I got caught in the rain once and didn't feel any loss in stability, but I didn't try to find the traction limits. When going through 3 inch deep puddles, it steered true. For my commuting, low hp, low weight bike application, this is an excellent choice and represents a great value with the rebate. I would definitely buy again, since I do not feel like I need supersport levels of grip, but these tires are used at a race school on CBR600RRs. April 18, 2015

Ken S: Size I needed for my '97 Honda ST11. Price was right, and Reviews were good. Long trip is in the planning stage for late spring, and I need a reliable, higher mileage set of tires. I've had good luck with Bridgestones in the past - both on my motorcycles and my cars and trucks. Mar 2, 2015

Che-Chuen H: Running the BT-023's now on my 2007 FJR. Read on the Bridgestone site that the 023's are being replaced by the T-30's. I've ridden on the 023's for years and years and love them. Great performance, grip in the turns, and longevity of the center tread. Jan 7, 2015
Calvin W: have had good results with battlax tires in the past Dec 27, 2014
Nicholas L: Read too many stories of the Avon STorms separating when used on a Honda ST1100. I just hope I like the T30 as much as I do the Avons. Dec 1, 2014
Robert K S: I have run Bridgestones since 2000 and love them. This tire has good ratings and replaces my favorite BT023. Nov 17, 2014
Robert G: I was going on a cross country trip and needed a tire that could hold up to many miles on the highway with out breaking the bank. I felt that even if I was to wear out the tire it was a good value. 6K later the tire looks great and is holding up as good as any other tire I have used. Oct 29, 2014
JAIME A: I had some Bridgestone Battlax BTO16R PRO. They were great handling tires but since I do more than twice freeway riding than canyon carving, they wore down to almost the wire down the middle while still having pretty good amount of tread on the sides. So now I wanted some tires that were stronger in middle but to still have that great grip on the sides to not lose the great handling aspect that the BTO16s had. Through research, reading reviews, and looking for good pricing, these T30-GTs seem to be what I am looking for. Hopefully they work out for me. Oct 28, 2014
Charles B: I have been using bridgestone on my fjr1300 since i bought it in 2005, very good tire for the money. Have been to florida, all over east coast and out to colorado. Bridgestone has proven a good tire. Trying t30's by recommendation from fellow rider and very good breakdown of information from revzilla. Sep 23, 2014
DeLoran L: Video Review information on Revzilla and Bridgestones YouTube channels was one of the factors that drove my decision.
