The S22 is not a race tire, it is a hyper sport street purpose tire according to Bridgestone, that is exceptional on the street and a good track day tire for lower run groups who ride the same tire on the street as track. They designed the tire to provide additional contact up to the edge, when within the design limits of the tire, which reflects the lower lean angle for that intended purpose. The combination of compound, and softer edge construction make this a great tire there. The next step upward, is the RS (Race Street) series tires, which are more appropriate for racing and A group riders who exceed the design limits of the S22, for track riders who do not use their bikes for street use.

I run the S22 on the street and have found that I use about 80% of their edge on spirited roads, where they are nothing short of excellent. I can see, however, that on a grippy track surface, at full speed, they would be all in as far as lean capacity in the tightest corners.
