Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue – The Next Generation Tire
The Cinturato P7 Blue with The Greatest Number “AA” Rated sizes in the World
While buying a car one hardly looks at the type of tire or its rating. However tire not only is the most fundamental part of the car, in fact, the whole prospect of handling which includes cornering, braking, along with noise vibration and harshness and even fuel economy depends upon the tire, such a critical component tire is considered.
Pirelli, the Italian tire maker, and the official tire supplier of 2017 Formula 1 race has now received the European AA benchmarking and stand as an ambassador for sustainability. When originally launched in 2012, the Cinturato P7 Blue was the first tire in the world to claim a maximum score on the European tire label for energy efficiency and safety (in certain sizes).
The latest Cinturato P7 Blue extends this standard to the new sizes added to the range, meaning that it now boasts a maximum European tyre label score on nearly all the sizes in the entire range.
This important result has been achieved thanks to the technical evolution that has positioned the Cinturato P7 Blue as a pioneer. The new P7 Blue takes all the advantages of its predecessor but further improves certain aspects of performance in line with the latest trends in the automotive industry, where sustainability is an increasingly important priority.
While Pirelli has a long product list and an OEM for high-end luxury cars to the most powerful sports cars. This new generation Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue reduces rolling resistance with a subsequent benefit in terms of fuel saving and CO2 emissions reduction, helping the environment. Using the most advanced technology, Low Rolling Technology Package, developed at Pirelli’s Settimo Torinese in Turin. It is based on a new system that controls the different phases of vulcanisation. The system allows the ideal thermal input to be specifically regulated for all the different materials. The ‘zero-degree’ construction and belt have also been optimized to distribute pressure more evenly, which guarantees top performance, as well as the safety under braking, in all conditions.
This allowed the Pirelli engineers to achieve marked reduction in rolling resistance thanks to the use of some patented new-generation internal materials. This was achieved without compromising dry and wet grip levels, to guarantee high levels of driving safety. The new technology has also led to an increase in tire life in the order of 10%.
The previous P7 Blue became a benchmark for owners of saloon cars and coupés with medium to large engine capacities, claiming 11 podium places from 14 international tire tests in the automotive press – including three test wins only last year.
