Driving technologies which deliver fuel savings and other benefits
Lower rolling resistance and increased durability
Bridgestone’s exclusive NanoPro-Tech™ compound significantly reduces the internal friction between the different tyre compound elements.
This decreases the energy loss in the top compound as the tyre rotates. Reduced energy loss means reduced rolling resistance, which means lower fuel consumption.
Robust casing for longer tyre life and better retreadability
Bridgestone’s breakthrough Waved Belt™ technology consists of a wave shaped strip of 9 steel cords. This is wrapped circumferentially to build the first and second belt layers.
This reduces stress and strain at the edges of the belt as well as increasing the stability and durability of the casings. This technology provides a stable footprint throughout the tyre’s life, thus reducing casing growth.
Lower rolling resistance and higher mileage
Bridgestone’s Low Energy Pattern has been specifically designed to control the movement of the tread blocks more effectively.
Because there is less deformation, tread wear is reduced and the resulting reduction in absorbed energy also reduces the tyre’s rolling resistance.
