+ best in rolling resistance

- wet braking could be a little bit better
By creating a windscreen wiper effect, the tyre offers vastly improved water dispersion for safe wet braking.
The improved contact with the road and the increased stability and rigidity of the tread pattern result in an optimum driving performance.
A special compound reduces energy loss during the deformation of the tyre. The effect: reduced rolling resistance for higher fuel efficiency.
