3D Multiwave Sipes - Sipes are thin slits in a treadblock that cut through water of the road surface to gain traction. Nitto's 3D Multiwave sipes feature an interlocking ripple design, which allows the sipes to "lock" together while braking to act like a continuous tread block and provides traction while accelerating.
Compound- Silica-reinforced tread compound strengthens blocks to reduce tread flex for improved acceleration, handling and braking.
Dry Performance - The outer shoulder is made of large reinforced tread blocks, which increase the amount of surface area contacting the road. This assists with dry performance and cornering.
Handling Stability - The solid center rib provides continuous contact with the road to increase the tire's rigidity and stability. This rigid design helps keep you connected to the road during hard braking and acceleration.
Inner Shoulder - The inner shoulder increases the contact patch for better braking performance and stability.
Advanced Noise Reduction Tread Pattern - Tire noise is amplified when vibrations of the same frequency are repeated, magnifying their intensity. Nitto broke up these repetitive noises through calculated variations in the size and position of repeating tread blocks, creating offset frequencies that reduce tire noise.
Wet Performance - Twin circumferential grooves effectively channel away water for outstanding wet performance.
