Designed specifically with the Adventure enthusiast in mind. This 40% on-road / 60% off-road Adventure tire is the perfect compliment to your modern Adventure motorcycle, and provides enhanced performance both on and off-road.
The Bridgestone Battlax Adventurecross AX41 offers improved off-road traction from a new pattern design, compound, and high cross sectional area.
The compound, pattern design, and block wall angle optimization have improved the durability of the AX41.
The block design has improved the performance on-road by reducing block deformation due to step wear.
Great initial feel after scrubbing in I just mounted the AX41 adventures on my bike. I'm quite impressed with them. My initial ride was from my house on hardtop for 5 miles to the Sunset summit where I got onto logging roads and broke them in a bit. There was a lot of loose gravel and they gripped very well. The front tracked easily without wanting to wander much if at all. On the asphalt I could feel a difference from the K60 as this has a round profile and leans in easily. I took it in some remaining snow to test it. There was still 6" to play in and these tires pushed thru quite well. I know it's not a TW250 but had to see how they worked in the event I ever have to forge thru a snow storm. On hills with washboard, I never felt like it wanted to get away from me both ascending and descending. Once back on pavement after a good aggressive scrub in off road, I pushed them a bit on a spirited ride thru some twisties and wet roads after sunset. They have good feedback in the corners and don't feel like a knobby at all. Bridgestone did something right with the release of this new tire. Got them from Rocky Mnt on a good sale plus Bridgestone has a 60$ visa card promo on them as well. There is also a good review from online from another shop on these where they end up in rain and they take them thru a pretty good ride. I'll update on wear as the season progresses.
