The new-generation Cinturato P7’s innovations start with the key element to every tyre: the tread pattern, which is contact with the road. The tread pattern specifically created for the new Cinturato P7 is enriched with specific silicon resins that help to increase grip and enhance the function of the tyre’s polymers. These are synthetic elastic materials that are chemically modified to improve the interaction with silicon – and these polymers can change according to the tyre’s working temperature. This means that the new compound benefits from a sort of ‘mechanical intelligence’ thanks to better distribution of the silicon particles and more effective interaction between them. As a result, the tyre’s characteristics can alter according to driving and temperature conditions, giving the driver an extremely wide optimal working range. … [Read more...] about New Pirelli Tire Auto-Adjusts To Temperature, Driving Conditions
