Optimised tread pattern:
Reduction in noise level thanks to optimised tread pattern: The comfort-optimised tread (1) design of the tyre reduces subjectively perceived interior noise and the pass-by noise actually measured. Your profit: More comfortable ride thanks to a 21% reduction in the interior noise level. Less environmental impact thanks to lower exterior noise levels.
Shorter braking distances on wet roads due to rubber compound (2). The silica (rubber) compound and an optimised tread pattern have reduced the wet braking distances significantly, especially for vehicles with ABS (anti-lock braking). Your profit: More safety reserves in the wet thanks to better wet handling and shorter braking distances on wet roads.
Up to 5% lower fuel consumption:
Tyre rolling resistance is reduced through the use of silica (rubber) compounds. Your profit: Approximately 5% fuel saving compared with tyres featuring conventional compound technology.
All details compared with the previous model or with tyres featuring conventional compound technology and construction.
