The new Cinturato offers more mileage, lower rolling resistance and reduced wet braking distances – highlighted by its excellent score of ‘AA’under the new European tyre label legislation
At Essen, Germany, today (5 May) the curtain goes up on new Cinturato P7 Blue. For the four days entirely devoted to the new developments from the tyre world, the spotlight will be firmly on this Cinturato family newborn. The tyre has been developed for medium cubic capacity cars and, like other evolutions of the Cinturato P7, it is confirmed as an ecological product.
High mileage, reduced braking distances and low rolling resistance are the Cinturato P7 Blue’s main characteristics, while the name recalls the WET tread compound of the Formula 1 tyre, from which its technology is derived.
It is precisely for its low rolling resistance and braking in the wet that the Cinturato P7 Blue has received top marks ‘A’ and ‘B’ in the tyre labelling classification (European Tyre Label) introduced by the European Union and which will become obligatory for cars, light and heavy commercial vehicle tyres from 1 November.
Cinturato P7 Blue will be available in 16 sizes in Europe from next July.
Also making their debut at Essen are the new Serie 01 truck tyres, which benefit from all the latest technological innovations created by Pirelli’s research and development division for the tyre’s structure, tread compound and pattern:
· H:01 tyres designed for use on motorways, dual carriageways and surfaces that determine reduced treads wear.
· ST:01 to equip trailers and semi-trailers.
The ecological covers developed by Pirelli for heavy goods vehicles have been given the maximum number of marks on their labels.
