Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 Front 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. Features Single compound Light weight carcass reduces gyro effect and weight on the front offering a lighter feel, ability to hold rider's chosen line and predictable handling 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

After having the new Bridgestone Battlax T30s installed, I rode my bike home in 14 degree weather, when the roads had been already salted for an impending snow storm. Ever wary of new tires, I couldn't be sure how these would perform, so I didn't push it too much, but I think my worries were unfounded.
These have great road feel, good grip, even when conditions are nasty and you ride through some slushy stuff. It feels like the contact patch is much larger than it is. I'd happily recommend these to someone else. The front tire soaks up bumps and sidewall seems stiff enough to handle some decent cornering, though I haven't really been dragging knees anywhere!
That said, I'll have to wait and see on longevity, but I'm optimistic these things will roll for 1000s of miles.
Yes, I recommend this product.
