Technical carbon nanoparticles

Tread material includes ultrafine technical carbon particles. This technology was tested on tires for car races. Material adhesion characteristics on dry and wet surfaces increase considerably.

Advantages

Improved tire traction on dry and wet asphalt, advanced wear resisting properties.

Application

SP SPORT MAXX TT

Aramid filler

Aramid filler

Aramid provides high stiffness of the filler. This reduces tire bead and tire sidewall deformation under the effect of lateral forces.

Advantages

High precision of steering control, quick car-steering wheel reaction.

Hybrid screening layer

A screening layer formed by aramid and nylon fibre. High tire stiffness in axial direction.

Advantages

High precision of steering control and high comfort level. 

Hydroblades

Tread pattern grooves which have a special form and function of pump blades. Water is driven out through them with maximum speed and minimum resistance.

Advantages

The quickest possible water removal from the contact pattern. High hydroplaning resistance and safety on wet road surface.

Application

SP SPORT MAXX

Variable tread stiffness

The tread has different stiffness levels across its width. Maximum stiffness is in shoulder areas and minimum in the centre.

Advantages

Advanced tread stiffness in shoulder areas increases steering control in cornering (when the shoulder areas bear the maximum load).

MFS system (wheel rim extra protection)

A profiled rubber belt over a tire bead.

Advantages

Provides protection of the rim edge on road irregularities, curbs and so on. 

Tread material with silica compound

Tread material with silica compound

Silica compound enhances tread material adhesion on wet surface. Also it provides advanced wear resisting properties of tire tread.

Advantages

Safe traction on wet surfaces, high wear resisting properties.

Three sectors tread

The tread is composed of two different materials forming the 3 sectors of the tire.

Advantages

By using the materials of different hardness in the central and membrane sectors, a high durability and enhanced functionality of the tire are provided. 

Lateral forces modeling technology

Lateral forces modeling technology

The technology allows to achieve an optimal balance of lateral forces on the front and rear wheels at different angles.

Advantages

With this technology a more accurate handling and stability in cornering is achieved.

A seamless breaker with increased flexibility

Each strand breaker consists of several steel filaments twisted by special technology.

Advantages

The filaments can elongate breaker without damaging the structure of the cord. This provides effective shock absorption and precise steering.

A high proportion of silica in the mixture

Silica enhances traction tread material with a wet road surface, even at low temperatures.

Advantages

It provides a clear management and high durability of the tread.

Ultradispersed carbon particles

Ultradispersed carbon particles

Advantages

Strengthened links between carbon and polymer molecules significantly densify the tire structure, improving traction with the road surface and increasing durability.
