RADIAL CROSS BELTED CONSTRUCTION

The main difference from the bias-belted construction is the structure of the carcass in this case is radial. Its cords are wrapped radially around the tire, from one bead to the other. This way, low-section tires can be manufactured, resulting in substantial advantages in terms of cornering stability, reduced weight and high-speed performance. High levels of rigidity allow the tire to tune the winding spacing to achieve a differention in the stiffness distribution from shoulder to crown.
