Essen, Germany - Pirelli has shown an A-A rated passenger car tyre at Essen. Among a range of other innovations, Pirelli said the new Cinturato P7 Blue is designed to offer cars with medium-sized engines increased mileage, reduced braking distances and lower rolling resistance. As well as this latest addition to the Cinturato family, Pirelli is exhibiting the latest products for cars, trucks and bikes at its stand.
The latest addition to the Cinturato range claims top marks in rolling resistance and wet braking - 'AA' and 'AB' in different sizes.
Pirelli's Chief Technical Officer Maurizio Boiocchi commented: â€œThe new European tyre label regulations present an opportunity for the consumer to know more about three important parameters: rolling resistance, noise and wet braking. This will help them to evaluate and choose their tyres, but at the same time, it is not enough to paint the whole picture of a tyre's characteristics.â€
Pirelli is also displaying the latest Series 01 truck tyres at Essen, which benefit from the latest compound, structure and tread pattern innovations introduced by the research and development division:
