(1) LEQ – Equivalent Sound Pressure Level. Based on vehicle test conducted in Japan in 2012 (Both Road noise and Pattern noise)
Gives you a ride 8% quieter than average of competitors*
With greater variation in the size and position of the tread blocks, the noise power is spread across a wider frequency range, making no peaks of noise power. Thus, your ride is more peaceful
*LEQ – Equivalent Sound Pressure Level
Based on vehicle test (Both Road noise and Pattern noise); VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 2011 model; 8/May/2012; JARI NVH test circuit (in Japan); Tyre Size 205/55 R16; 6.5JJ16; 2.2 bar on front and Rear
Keeps the ride smooth, steady and comfortable.
Cushion vibrations when the tread blocks contact the road surface using supple FlexMax compounds
Absorbs bumps in the road using shock absorbent sidewalls.
With FlexMax technology, the tread adapts to the irregularities of the road surface for better connection and grip.
FlexMax chamfer prevents the tread block from distorting and losing contact pressure under the centre of tread blocks, ensuring maximum rubber contact with the road when needed most.
StabiliGrip technology uses self-locking bands inside the small grooves to minimise tread block deformation, improving handling and cut through water in the wet.
