Pirelli TH01 Energy
Specific for drive axles, benefits of new structure and compounds, enriched in silica and nano filler to provide lower rolling resistance and better mileage.
H Low Severity: products designed for long-haul transport vehicles on motorways or arterial roads with very low specific tread-wear conditions.
Low rolling resistance and reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
Improved mileage and longer first tyre life.
Reusable tyres, thanks to high retreadability and recyclable highly aromatic oil free (HAOF) materials.
Lower noise emission and high acoustic comfort.
Fulfils 2012 EC directive.
MORE MILEAGE, LESS FUEL CONSUMPTION.
The innovative structure ensures increased tyre life and high retreadability. The new compounds, enriched in silica and nano fi ller, provide lower rolling resistance. This reduces fuel consumption and CO2 whilst improving mileage.
Increased tread width promotes mileage
Deep siping enhances:
Traction during whole tyre life
Better wet grip
Reduced braking distance
Close tread blocks promoter:
Lower rolling distance
Higher land to sea ratio: greater frictionable surface area for higher traed life
Very low noise generation
Directional tread pattern optimises grip on both wet and dry surfaces
Ejectors at the bottom of central grooves prevent stones trapping thus ensuring better durability and retreadability
High ties between shoulder blocks provide:
Lower rolling resistance
Better even wear
Specific depth indicators ease regrooving operations.
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.
