The new size of the ST:01 line revolutionises tyre standards for mega trailers, maximising the loads/volumes ratio as before.
High retread value and low noise complete the characteristics of a tyre designed to improve performance and reduce environmental impact.
H Low Severity: products designed for long-haul transport vehicles on motorways or arterial roads with very low specific tread-wear conditions.
R Medium Severity: products designed for all-around transport vehicles travelling on slightly abrasive surfaces, including winding/hilly roads and urban traffic.
Thanks to the SATT production process and the new TWST zero degrees structure, the latest addition to the Series 01 guarantees excellent mileage and low rolling resistance.
Greater transportable volume at same load capacity.
Tread pattern with 6 longitudinal grooves optimised for stragh-line road holding,rolling resistence and lateral stability.
Groove geometry designed to prevent stone retention.
Reinforced sidewalls for a greater resistance to lateral impact.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
