This year’s trans-European Gibraltar Race provided the perfect spectacle for Bridgestone to show off the performance of their two latest off-road capable tyres.
Late last year, the Japanese brand launched brand new adventure bike and enduro tyres and they’be been proving popular here in the UK since their arrival in early 2019.
The Battlecross E50 is an enduro competition tyre which takes technology from Bridgestone’s acclaimed motocross range, including Castle Block Technology which ensures a more consistent level of grip over changing surfaces.
The Battlax Adventurecross AX41 is Bridgestone’s entry into the increasingly crowded on/off-road adventure tyre market. Ideal for bikes like the Honda Africa Twin and BMW R1250GS Adventure, it offers excellent traction over a wide range of surfaces, without compromising overall road performance.
At this year’s Gibraltar Race, Bridgestone asked brand ambassadors Hubert Bastie and Marco Belli to give their new rubber a thorough test, and they duly obliged!
