the use of orange oil increases gripping power for safety. C.drive2 introduces a new era of eco tire.
C.drive2 adopts a newly-developed compound with Orange Oil.
The newly-developed compound with Orange Oil is the aggregation of our ECO tire technologies. It is a new-generation ECO tire in which reduction of rolling resistance achieves a good balance between high fuel efficiency and wet performance.
New Compound Offers Improved Performance
C.drive2 features a new compound with polymers that have a higher molecular weight and increased volume of silica than previous types. The long polymers are intertwined with one another, increasing the strength of the rubber to provide excellent handling performance. Using more silica while reducing carbon helps to reduce heat, thus lowering rolling resistance. The addition of orange oil makes the rubber more flexible, for better gripping performance in both dry and wet conditions.
Enhanced Full Logic Tread Pattern
The C.drive's 'Full Logic' asymmetrical tread pattern has now been enhanced even further. The positioning of the grooves provides superior performance on both wet and dry surfaces. The maximized contact area in the outer zone (1) and the shortened lug grooves on the inside shoulder (2) are designed to maintain rigidity when cornering, whilst the four wide straight grooves (3). The spiral drain grooves (4) on the centre ribs are effective in draining water. Diamond-shaped bevels (5) ease the stress on the central rib, which prevents uneven wear.
