Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 Rear 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.


  • 3LC (Dual Compound)
  • 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

You really can have it all! I currently run a T30 rear / 003 RS front on my 2004 636. My style of riding is aggressive canyon with the occasional track day. I started running an ST rear with the 023 in 2012 because I can't afford to replace a rear tire twice a season. I liked the 023 but the T30 is head and shoulders better. Especially at deep lean angles. I can touch my knee down in the canyons without any feeling of instability. Some of that might be the 003 RS as well. I can't speak for the front tire but I can confidently say the T30 rear is good for a B group maybe low A group track pace and of course will handle anything you can throw at them in the canyons. Not to mention it'll last longer than 4000 miles. July 1, 2014
very grippy and predictable handling I use these on cross country trips 2up on my Ulysses.Had Angels once but at 8000 miles cords were showing,went for 023 Gt ever since,slightly less dry grip but way better longetivity.Tried these new T30 GT and dry handling is on par now with the Angel's with better front end feel and longetivity is the same....I will continue using these.

D***!!!! These things are amazing!!!! I switched up from the Pilot Power 2CT and an so glad I did. Wet or dry, cold or warm they grip like I am glued to the road. May 20, 2014
Good traction in wet and dry 3000km (2000 miles) so far, wear looks uniform, good traction and predictable turn in July 1, 2014
Good overall. These tires are great for everyday riding. I can tell they will wear well. Already ridden in the rain and they are much more confidence inspiring than my last sport tires. The only negative, if you can call it that, is the profile. They are designed to work very well in a straight line. The profile of this tire leads to a slower turning front end compared to a pure sport tire. However, the more I ride it the more it becomes a training issue more than anything. These things are great for the money. I recommend them just be aware you will have to learn these tires and how they work. June 23, 2014
Great product The center part of the rear tire is still solid after 1000 kms of riding. The side parts are soft which is great for lean angles. The center part will give you more milage and the outer part will really depend on how you take a corner during rides. For me the important thing is, the tire sticks to the road when taking corners.

D***!!!! I switched from the Pilot Power 2CTs and man am I glad I did. As soon as I had them put on it started to rain so right off the bat I got to test them in the wet and they gripped so well I thought I was on a dry road. Cold or warm, wet or dry they are amazing!!!! I used to get nervous going into turns because my old tires would brake loose but these babies do not budge. Even on bumpy roads the ride is smooth and I feel like I am glued to the ground. May 20, 2014
Great product After 1000 kms, the tire still looks new. Great tread patten, the grooves really work when i used it on a rainy day. On a regular day, the tire sticks on the road when taking on corners. April 13, 2014

Scott C: You want a tire that is intended to fit the make and model of your ride reguardless of the name of tire manufacturer. Make sure the wheels are made for your ride. Make sure the tire is made for your ride. You will have established the safest combination for you and your passenger. Always use an innertube, rim strip and sometimes a tire boot with wire spoke rims. Mar 3, 2014
