Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
Ventus Prime 2 is leading edge technology developed using a bionic oriented pattern design (Jaguar's tooth shape) to secure optimum grip.
'GripTech' technology is applied to Ventus Prime 2 for Premium Performance and it helps to maximize wet handling and braking performance.
- Triple-radius profile that maintains maximum grip at top speed or during sharp turns on the wet conditions
- Triple-radius profile that maintains maximum grip in wet condition
- New Generation Silica Compounding Technologies improve both fuel efficiency and wet performance.
- Jaguar's Tooth Shape Design to Secure Optimum Grip
When accelerating and cornering, optimum shoulder grip is maintained by using Jaguar's tooth shape design. This feature allows for better handling in all driving conditions.
