Technological developments and research Pirelli - that place the company among the leading manufacturers for innovation, particularly in ultra high performance - have made it possible to extend the mass market logic of high performance and maximum safety combined all 'ecology .
The advantages offered by the new tyre are minor fuel consumption, reduced emissions of CO2, not dispersion of aromatic oils into less noise, high yield mileage, longer-lasting, more braking 'short on dry and wet and stronger contact on the road, especially on a slippery.
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.

27.05.2010fromAndre Formerly I had Vredestein Sportrac 2 and Dunlop SP Sport Fastresponse and in my opinion this tyre is the best of the three. Warms up well, very comfortable, stable and safe tyre in all conditions. Not to mention, that this cinturato edition is a "green" tyre.
