For high speeds in road use.

The bionic contour of the tire narrows the tire when moving and widens it when braking. This reduces the braking distance and ensures higher cornering stability. The tire's asymmetrical profile and outer rigidity guarantees exceptional cornering and a fun drive without compromising on safety. The four or five (depending on tire width) circumferential drainage grooves provide excellent protection against aquaplaning.

Technical details

Short braking distances and high cornering stability

The tire’s bionic contour creates a disproportionately wider ground contact patch in the case of increased dynamic load, resulting in short braking distances and greater cornering stability. Safety reserves for outstanding handling and fun at the wheel

Sturdy shoulder lugs on the outer side of the tire, linked to the ribbed tread pattern structure, mean steering precision and cornering stability, as well as optimum traction and braking characteristics. These large lugs linked to the circumferential rib give the tire a good foothold, thereby improving traction and braking, with optimum steering precision and straight running. Low rolling resistance and excellent grip The state-of-the-art high-performance car tire tread compound with silica technology ensures outstanding interlocking with the road, resulting in excellent grip and low rolling resistance.

Highlights:

  • Short braking distances and high cornering stability
  • Safety reserves for outstanding handling and fun at the wheel
  • Low rolling resistance and excellent grip
 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
