Features and Benefits
Shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads
The tread pattern with 3-dimensional shoulder blades and the tread compound using special traction resins, enhance braking grip both on wet and dry roads.
More uniform pressure distribution in the footprint from the computer optimised cavity shape and tread stiffness supports increased wear resistance for better mileage.
Reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
The functionalised polymer results in less heat generation and lower rolling resistance for reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
