Innovative Tire Design - A Comprehensive Tire Design Method. This method improves handling in wet or dry conditions and reduces irregular treadwear by combining an ideal tread design, casing shape, materials and construction.
Innovative Roundness - Rounder Is Better. Rounder overall tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry handling.
EPO (Extended Performance Optimization). The integration of Dual-Layer Tread and EPC (Extended Performance Compound) minimizes the loss of wet braking and handling performance as the tire wears.
EPC Tread Compound. Reduces the hardening effects of heat for continued flexibility and wet performance as the tire wears.
5 Noise Reduction. Produces noise-canceling sound waves to significantly reduce tire noise on road surfaces.
Power V Tread Pattern. A design developed from the Firehawk Indy Racing rain tire to discharge water for better contact with wet roads and reduced risk of hydroplaning.
