Among its primary characteristics are:
- Resistant to irregular wear with optimised foot print and contact pressure is evenly distributed across entire tread.
- Large shoulder block pattern minimized shoulder movement which reduces shoulder wear.
- High level wet traction/braking capabilities achieved with the use of a silica rich compound that connects to the polymer, creates excellent flexibility. Therefore allowing it to closely follow the delicate indentations on the road surface, thus increasing wet grip.
- Reduced Fuel consumption by introducing heat resistant polymer which prevent unnecessary heat generation by the polymer, leading to reduced rolling resistance.
