Bridgestone Battlecruise H50 £280 a pair
The Japanese tyre giant’s first cruiser tyre, the all-new Battlecruise H50, has been launched to appeal specifically to riders of American V-twins. Two waves of fitments will be available. On sale now, the first has cross- ply construction, comes in eight sizes front and rear, and is aimed at smaller, lighter models such as the Indian Scout and Harley Sportster. It’s suitable for some Harley ‘Big Twins’ such as the Softail Slim, too.
A second wave, including some radials, is scheduled for January 2018, and comes in 14 larger sizes (right up to a 240-section rear) designed for heavier tourers. Bridgestone say the H50 gives class-leading performance, excellent grip and tyre life that’s claimed to be up to 90% better than conventional rivals’. On the downside, no whitewalls will be offered, as they compromise performance. Sizes: 130/90-16 73H, 130/90-16 67H, 100/90-19 and 80/90-21 front; 130/90-16, 140/90-16, 150/80-16 and 160/ 70-17 rear. www.bridgestone.co.uk
