Bridgestone Launches BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41

Jan 31, 2019

Bridgestone Corporation has announced the launch of the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre, a new addition to its line-up of adventure touring motorcycle tyres. The newest offering in the BATTLAX tyre line features superior off-road performance and durability. Scheduled for release in the U.S. and Canada in January 2019 and in other regions in February 2019, the initial line-up of BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyres will include four front tyre sizes and five rear tyre sizes.

Adventure Motorcycling

The Adventure Touring Motorcycle Tyre made Specifically for Adventure Enthusiasts

The BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre is engineered for predominantly off-road driving. This tyre's superior off-road performance is the product of a high-rigidity compound as well as large blocks on the tyre's perimeter that enable the tyre to exhibit strong traction on muddy surfaces. In addition, the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 front tyre employs a new technology that optimises the block wall angle for added durability.

Tread Pattern


The BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre boasts a block cross-section area roughly 30 percent larger than the previous generation tyre. This gives the new offering high grip and traction.

 Block Wall Angle Optimisation Technology (Front Tyre)

Bridgestone utilises a block wall angle optimisation technology in the design of the BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyre. Tyre engineers used this technology to optimise the block shapes in the tyre's tread pattern to limit uneven wear. This technology is also utilised in front BATTLAX ADVENTURECROSS AX41 tyres to prevent uneven wear and improve durability.
