Cinturato All Season: the worry-free tyres

Imagine going out on a Saturday night, in winter. Perhaps in Milan, Rome or Naples. And returning home late at night in the pouring rain. Then imagine that, as predicted by the lurking menace of Murphy's Law, your car suddenly starts to skid and you realize you have a puncture. It's the nightmare of every motorist, especially those of the fairer sex.
So what next? All you can do is be patient, hope for good luck and get out your jack, all the while kicking yourself for failing to follow the advice of your tyre dealer, who had recently suggested you fit the new Cinturato™ All Season.

Smiley faceBecause Pirelli has designed a "worry-free" tyre, a tyre designed to let drivers sleep soundly at night. The Cinturato™ All Season, as the name suggests, is not only suitable for every season of the year, but is also the only four-season tyre equipped with Seal Inside technology, allowing you to keep driving even with a puncture. So how does it work? Under the surface there is an adhesive sealant that creates a membrane capable of enclosing any foreign body from the moment it penetrates the tyre, thereby preventing air from escaping and causing loss of pressure. When the object is removed (or automatically expelled), the adhesive immediately seals the exit hole. Job done. If you consider that in about 85% of cases the cause of pressure loss is puncturing by foreign bodies, then you can see how much more straightforward and tranquil the life of the motorist with Cinturato™ All Season tyres can be.

It’s the kind of tranquillity that you will appreciate even more when the time comes for your seasonal tyre change. While other drivers continue to have no choice, those with the new All Season can forget  about queuing at their tyre dealer. In fact, this product is a viable solution for the entire year, complying fully with local regulations. It's no accident that the All Season bears both the symbol of a snowflake on three peaks and the M+S symbol, certifying total safety in winter conditions.
But be careful: in the most severe weather conditions, Pirelli nonetheless continues to recommend the use of winter tyres. The new Cinturato™ All Seasonis really aimed at the owners of city cars, who are not looking for extreme performance from their car and do not travel long distances during the year. In developing this product, Pirelli was thinking in particular of women, young people and owners of second family cars, with the goal of providing not just tyres but an all-round service, ideal for those used to the heavy traffic of big cities where the winters are not too harsh.

The big challenge faced by Pirelli technicians in developing this new tyre was to create a product that encapsulates the best aspects of both summer and winter tyres. 

To achieve this result, the engineers at Bicocca started with a directional tread pattern, which optimizes the tyre’s capacity to expel water through the two wide longitudinal and lateral grooves, greatly reducing the phenomenon of aquaplaning. 
Its innovative design also reduces noise both outside the vehicle, in line with the increasingly stringent European regulations on noise pollution, and inside, with the result of enhancing driving pleasure. 
A further distinctive feature of the new Cinturato™ All Season is its 3D sipe technology. The tread pattern of the All Season is designed so that on both dry and wet terrain the 3D sipes optimize movement of the tread, ensuring better cornering and braking performance, as well as aligning the tyre's wear profile and prolonging its life. On snow-covered surfaces, however, the tread opens up to capture snow crystals, resulting in excellent road holding.

Together, these technological innovations have earned the new Pirelli Cinturato™ All Season a prestigious victory in the international trade press, winning first place in tests by German magazine Autobild. The tyre was rated "Exemplary", thanks to its "stable lateral grip and excellent road holding performance on the wet". Among the reasons given for the winning rating, the German magazine highlighted "safety in the event of aquaplaning, precise steering and a pleasant driving experience on both dry and wet roads." 

In other words, with the Cinturato™ All Season the only thing that will stop you in your tracks on a winter’s night is an empty tank!
