BRIDGESTONE RACING BATTLAX VO1
Bridgestone developed new compounds for the Racing Battlax V01, optimising the blend for maximum grip across the selected temperature range. The front V01 tyre with mono-spiral belt construction has a single crown radius providing high stability under the lean angle, while the smaller dual crown radius on the rear improves grip and smoothness.
Compared to the preceding Battlax R01/R02 combination, the V01 has higher construction stiffness and contact feel, producing better lateral grip for cornering. In-house comparative testing shows big improvements in handling, cornering stability and chattering (excessive vibration), with much quicker warm-up performance and significant gains in best and average lap times.
