R9T TECHNOLOGY

ALL THE EXPERTISE OF BRIDGESTONE CYCLE GOES INTO THIS TIME TRIAL FRAME
TT bike developed without preconceptions
R9T is the first time trial bike that Bridgestone Cycle has ever produced. We think TT bikes are the result of every bit of technical expertise in the development of sports bikes because they need to bethe fastest.

RXR TECHNOLOGY

THE BIKE WILL BE BUILT TO PERFECTLY MATCH THE RIDER
One’s ideal bike will be realized with a custom-made carbon frame
RXR is a custom-made carbon frame that offers a perfect fit and optimal ride quality. With this process, the frame geometry can be adjusted down to the millimeter and seven different levels of stiffness are available to suit one’s purpose and strength, which is impossible in the standard manufacturing process.

R9R TECHNOLOGY

LOSS MINIMIZATION AND PURE PROPULSION, TITLE WINNING ROAD RACER
A new concept born from the Bridgestone Central Laboratory
Bridgestone Cycle offers racing bikes. R9R is one, the pinnacle of the racing models that realize our concept. It is very different from the past models in the development process. We developed the bike together with the Bridgestone Central Laboratory, who carefully simulated, tested and assessed it.

PROFORMAT

PROPULSIVE FORCE MAXIMIZATION ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGY
The latest analyzing and simulation tech applied to frame manufacturing
It has been our mission to quantify the “feeling” of the ride and incorporate it into the production of our frames over the years. We have repeatedly pursued the ideal ride by working to understand the countless unknowns present in the world of the bicycle frame.

R9L TECHNOLOGY

A FRAME THAT ENCOURAGES YOU TO PEDAL FURTHER
Ride farther and more comfortably with PROFORMAT
R9L is a bike that can take you great distances in maximum comfort . Together with the rhythm from the frame structure that is the signature of this frame, let the bike roll freely with the lossless methods of PROFORMAT.

R8R TECHNOLOGY

A NIMBLE AND QUICK FEEL FOR RACERS AT EVERY LEVEL
A racing model with the top racing philosophy
The R8R is a high performance race model that inherits the top racing model’s design philosophy. It holds power loss to a minimum, accelerates quickly and perfectly realizes the ideal of a carbon road bike.

NEO-COT TECHNOLOGY

PERFECTED STEEL FRAME TO THE PEAK OF WORLD QUALITY
Design a whole chromoly frame with the ideal shapes
The RNC7 & XNC7 are made from one of Bridgestone’s original chromoly tube types, called NEO-COT. The main feature of a NEOCOT frame is that it is recognizable even when the paint is completely stripped.

X9B TECHNOLOGY

RELIABLE CONTROL AND EFFICIENT RIDE TO THE PODIUM
Properly placed center of gravity for better bike control
The XC racing scene is evolving quickly and the courses have become more technical than ever. The era when a rider could save time by powering up a climb is over. The current world standard requires a skill set capable of dealing with the roughest trails and even some jumps.
