Outstanding grip and protection.

We never stop trying to improve riders’ grip, control and safety, so you can just ride. Continually developing new technologies, and testing them in race conditions. Only then do they make their way into our main product range.

Innovations including Heat Control Technology (HCT), JointLess Tread (JLT) and our low pressure NTEC system were all developed through our passion for motorsport. All give you the confidence to feel protected.


EXPLORE TECHNOLOGIES.

NTEC: PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM

WHAT: Highly reinforced casing construction on race tyres

IMPROVES: The range of inflation pressure

END RESULT: Increases the size of the contact patch and therefore grip, reduces localised wear

MULTI-TREAD (MT) TECHNOLOGY

WHAT: Multiple compounds used in the tread

IMPROVES: Versatility by performing differently at lean and when upright

END RESULT: Combines durability and cornering performance

JOINTLESS BELT (JLB) CONSTRUCTION

WHAT: Continuously wound belt around the tyre casing

IMPROVES: The strength of the tyre construction

END RESULT: Controls dynamic growth and handling

JOINTLESS TREAD (JLT)

WHAT: Continuously wound tread compound

IMPROVES: Flexibility for performance tuning

END RESULT: Optimises performance, consistency and mileage for factory racing tyres

HEAT CONTROL TECHNOLOGY (HCT)

WHAT: Advanced tread architecture using different cap (outer) and base (lower) compounds

IMPROVES: The tyre’s ability to combine conflicting properties

END RESULT: The base compound can be tuned to either generate or reduce heat build-up, to optimise cap compound performance

DYNAMIC FRONT FORMULA (DFF)

WHAT: Front tyre design process

IMPROVES: Tuning to perfectly suit the intended usage

END RESULT: Offers the ideal balance between steering effort, clear feedback and neutral handling

ADVANCED APEX DESIGN (AAD)

WHAT: Thinner and longer apex shape

IMPROVES: Ride quality & feedback

END RESULT: Increased rider confidence through enhanced predictability, as well as improved compliance

CARCASS TENSION CONTROL SYSTEM (CTCS)

WHAT: Tyre casing architecture with different tension zones

IMPROVES: Stability and feedback

END RESULT: Combines compliance and optimised footprint area for optimum grip, stability and feedback

JOINTLESS TREAD (JLT)

WHAT: Continuously wound tread compound

IMPROVES: Flexibility for performance tuning

END RESULT: Optimises performance, consistency and mileage for factory racing tyres

END RESULT: Increased rider confidence through enhanced predictability, as well as improved compliance

PROGRESSIVE CORNERING BLOCK TECHNOLOGY (PCBT)

WHAT IS IT: Optimised tread block flexibility achieved through stepped design of the shoulder blocks

IMPROVES: Off-road grip

END RESULT: Better slide control and tightened corner exit grip

MULTIPLE BLOCK DISTRIBUTION (MBD)

WHAT IS IT: Distribution spacing of the tread blocks is greater centrally than on the shoulder area

IMPROVES: Off-road grip

END RESULT: Optimised straight line traction in low-grip conditions and enhanced rider feedback in corners

ADVANCED APEX DESIGN (AAD)

WHAT: Thinner and longer apex shape

IMPROVES: Ride quality & feedback

END RESULT: Increased rider confidence through enhanced predictability, as well as improved compliance

CARCASS TENSION CONTROL SYSTEM (CTCS)
