Pirelli Middle East has launched its latest tyres for the commercial transport sector in the Middle East.
The Series:01 and the new Novatread range of tyres have been developed using the latest design techniques, as is the case for Pirelli’s renowned Ultra High Performance road car tyres. For commercial operators, a particular emphasis has been placed on durability and safety.
Compared to previous generation products, the new range of Pirelli truck tyres offer a longer tyre life, greater ease of rebuilding, and improved road holding on both wet and dry surfaces, a statement said.
The technical evolution of the R:01II range touches on both the structure and the compound. The introduction of a reinforced bead means that the tyre is easier to rebuild, while the new compound formula offers a longer tyre life and better road holding in a wide variety of conditions.
The R:01II range is sold with two tread pattern designs: FR:01II and TR:01II. FR:01II is specifically designed for steering axles. The new generation tyre features a wider tread, leading to longer life as well as improved driving precision and roadholding. There is also an evolution of the grooves in the tyre, to maximise the expulsion of stones and other objects, boosting durability.
TR:01II is the tyre for driven axles. Thanks to its impressive roadholding in slippery conditions, it has been awarded the European 3PMSF mark (Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake), the statement said.
Pirelli is also a specialist in long-haul transport of people, with the new H:01 COACH range presented at Essen. This consists of FH:01 COACH, for every axle, and TH:01 COACH – specifically for driven axles.
The innovations for this range of products also centre on both structure and materials. The reinforced bead and new compound increase the durability of the tyre, leading to longer life and greater ease of reconstruction. The TH:01 COACH in 295/80R22.5 size also benefits from M+S and 3PMSF markings, underlining its high levels of performance.
Responding to recent market trends, the FH:01 COACH in 295/80R22.5 size has an increased load index (154/149 M). The FH:01 in 315/70R22.5 and 315/60R22.5 sizes will also shortly be made available in this XL (extra load) specification, according to the statement.
