      The next iteration of the Hypersport S20 tire, the Bridgestone Battlax S21 tire delivers everything the S20 offered - and so much more. UltimatEYE development technology allows developers to simulate speeds of up to ~250MPH and 60 degrees of lean angle to accurately visualize the contact patch, allowing them to see exactly how much grip the tire has and implement improvements accordingly. Some of these improvements include a dual-compound front tire, a triple-compound rear, and an improved tread pattern, all culminating in an increase of about 30% in dry grip over the S20 without sacrificing any wet grip. Whether you’re a canyon carver or track day enthusiast, this tire is rated to about 170MPH to give you the best performance when you need it most.
    • Dry grip and wear life significantly improved without sacrificing wet performance.
    • 3D cross grooves designed to optimize rigidity and improve contact with the road.
    • Dual compound front tire (3LC) with revised profile generates higher grip at lower lean angles.
    • New Enhanced Micro-contact-patch Compound (EMC) technology used for both front and rear shoulder compounds. EMC increases grip potential and improves thermal stability to make sure the tire performance remains consistent as temps go up.

    Great tires! Send me another set!
    Hello all, I've put 1500 miles on my new set of S21's and they seem to check all the boxes for me... (so far at least, I'd still like to do a track day with a new set). They warm up quick and provide predictable turn in, consistent feedback and stability, with very good grip at all lean angles. Braking stability (straight line heavy front brake, as well as, trail braking into corners) is also very good and predictable. These tires offer a huge amount of grip for a street tire and also have good feedback at or near the limit, which inspires confidence. But... as we know, the condition of the pavement, bike set up, skill level, etc. plays a big role in how much grip is available. Always be mindful of what might effect tire grip. Safety first, please.

    I've been sport riding for 25 years with some track days sprinkled in here and there (I'm into bike control and lean angle), so I've had the opportunity to sample many sets of tires within the top brands over the years. With current high end sport tires I typically get 2000 to 3500 street miles out of a set. After the initial 1500 miles (sport riding miles only) I am impressed at how well the S21's are holding up, especially for the grip that they provide! They look like they could last ~3500, maybe even more!

    Great tire and great value! RM please send me another set!

    I like these tires
    I've had a set of S21's installed on my GSX-S1000 for a few weeks and a couple hundred miles. I ride them on the street and have used them at a track day. I like the light steering feel and good grip at 36F, 42R street pressures on the street. The track day had both wet and dry sessions, including a session with one half of the track dry and the other half wet. I ran 30psi F and 28psi R. The S21's felt solid in the wet, the front especially. I seemed to be getting better grip than most in the wet conditions. In the dry the grip felt good. Not quite as sticky as the DOT race tires on my R6, but plenty to have fun with. The tires held up well during the track day with minimal wear. Recommended.

    Great for all types of riding and bikes
    I do about 11,000 miles on my FZ1 a year. I like to use a sport touring rear, but dislike the profile of Sport Touring Front Tires. I switched to the S21 front two years ago.

    I got 9,000 miles out of the front tire! That includes the hot Texas Summer and a 3,500 weeklong trip. (36psi)

    This front tire is spectacular. Great profile, absolutely great feedback and feel from the front, and it doesn't wear hardly at all.

    I just bought a full set of S21's for my SV650 track bike. I like the S20 front before I switched, and I picked the S21's over the Q3's because of increased treadlife without compromise of grip. Unless you are running A/1 group track days, you wont be able to tell the difference. And these are 20$-40$ cheaper and will last longer.

    Love the S21 front. Truly phenomenal and for how long it lasts too.

    Very impressive tire at a great price.
    Wasn't happy with the feel and feedback I was getting from the set of Q3's decided to try out the S21 and after the first ride of about 300 miles I am very happy. Roads were a little cold and had a slight mist but they handled great.

    A fan for life !
    Had tried other tyres such as M7rr's, PP2ct, PP3's and even SP V2's for road use these were all rubbish compared to S21's, once you try S21's you to will be converted like I was, grip, feel, feedback and longevity considering these are a Hypersport tyre are just fantastic and if you like doing a track day every now and then you will be impressed .

    I might've had an out of body experience
    I have tried a few brands of tires and tire models over the years and it seems that I feel most comfortable and confident on a Bridgestone as far as sport tires go. When it was time to replace my BT-016 EVOs I opted for the newer S21s plus they had a good rebate if you purchased a set.

    I knew what to expect at baseline since I am brand loyal but these tires exceeded my expectations!

    Turn in is great, stickiness is fantastic, and they are very inspiring in how they go about their business helping your carve up the twisty stuff. If you like how Bridgestone tires work for your style then I really think you'll dig these tires.

    Haven't had a chance to put these on the road yet. But shipment was fast and the tire looks great and have very deep tread which should make this a great tire in the rain. Not a lot of treads which is great for contact possibly a good street to track tire. Normally ride Q2s which is what came off but was looking for a cheaper price tag not necessarily a cheaper tire. At 215 shipped I'm hoping these are the answer. All the research I have done says that they are but only time will tell and when it does I will update this after first 1000 miles any track and rain days and again after last ride. Burn rubber not your soul...
