Green Performance Three years before the introduction of the European rules on environmental protection, Pirelli launched in 2009 its green performance tyres (Cinturato on Consumer and Serie 01). These tyres match high environmental protection (reduction of consumption, less CO2 emissions, reduction of noise pollution) with high performance. “Green performance” is Pirelli’s environmental and social sustainability philosophy on products as well as production processes.
 
Grip Ability by the tyre to keep a good friction ratio with road surface under all conditions of use (braking, acceleration, turning or cornering). Research on tyres (winners of several tests) and ad hoc technologies like Cyber Tyre and Cyber Wheel (not yet on the market and measure grip without changes) make it possible to always have the top standard of quality on Pirelli’s products.
