ERJ staff report (DS)
Melbourne, Australia - Bridgestone has launched a new tyre in Australia that, it claims, is so smart, it's like having your own set of noise-cancelling headphones.
The new Turanza T001 is Bridgestone's most advanced tyre for the premium touring market and features a tread pattern with special cavities that trap and counter noise - operating in much the same way that noise-cancelling headphones do.
â€œIt works on the principle of the Helmholtz silencer, where clever acoustic design can reduce and even eliminate undesirable noise. Our testing has shown that the T001 can deliver significant reductions in noise when compared to a traditional tyre,â€ said Claudio Sodano, Bridgestone's Group Technical Field Service Manager.
