The tyre reduces rolling resistance on the tyre and at the same time, ensures a high level of safety during braking.
The combination of special additives and optimised tread lug edges makes for improved grip in the wet, leading to short, safe braking distances on wet roads. Moreover, functionalised polymer chains firmly linked to the silica mean lower rolling resistance. Extra-thin sipes reduce tread deformation, thereby also minimising energy loss.
A higher apex and the use of additional bead reinforcements ensure safer and more direct transmission of the lateral forces occurring when steering on wet and dry roads. The weight-reduced sidewall is more supple in its design, thereby also contributing towards improved rolling resistance.
Less deformation movement in the sidewall area above the rim and easier deflection in the sidewall flexing zone by constructive measures. A flat contour with optimal distribution of thread grooves stands for a reduced tread movement and a minimized lateral and longitudinal slip.
