  • RaceSport

    the RaceSport carcass uses light constuction to provide 30% better protection against punctures than the previous lightweight option

  • Shieldwall

    ShieldWall combines the optimum combination of high puncture protection and low rolling resistance with low weight. This is made possible by an additional, all-round puncture protection layer, which consists of a finely woven cross fabric

  • Standard

Compound (choose from the following)

Depending on the intended use of the tyre, the blend is adjusted from gravity orientated soft grip, all the way up to fast rolling race tyres

  • Pure Grip

    Based on activated silica compounds, this technology was originally intended as a performance level compound, but after intensive development at their German R&D facility, an advanced new compound with outstanding grip, elasticity and rolling properties was developed
