Batt Ultra HP Series - Moto Rider World Magazine and Bike Tyre Warehouse
Last year, Batt released their first ever slick track tyre to the SA market - the UHP Slicks. A hard compound track tyre aimed at the not-so-serious trackday rider. Now, they have a new softer slick and it’s more gripping than ever!
Last year, Batt released their UHP slick track tyres, catering for the track day rider looking for a tyre that offers suitable grip levels, great stability, and most importantly, longevity. The Batt UHP (Ultimate High Performance) slicks offered all of the above and have been a huge hit with track day riders across the land since their release.
I have personally tested the UHP slicks and approved them for their purpose, which was a track tyre aimed at the group B, C, and D track day rider. Decent enough grip, but the main highlight being the stability under braking and longevity – these things last forever!
While the price conscious rider loved the UHP, the faster, but still budget conscious rider wanted a bit more grip out of the UHP slicks. A softer compound, one that would still last but offer more side grip. Bruce de Kock, the motorcycle tyre genius here in SA, and the man behind Bike Tyre Warehouse, listened to the cry from faster track day riders wanting the same price, longevity, and stability the UHP hard compound slicks offered but with more grip.
