Features & Technologies
The new Sport Force+ tyre is the result of recent development activities, intensive testing and high-end elastomers built into a tyre compound. Sport Force+ boasts superior performances throughout the tyre service life achieved by using Strong Carcass Technology (SCT). Sport Force+ delivers outstanding grip on different road surfaces, temperatures and conditions supported by OGT 3D-Optimum Groove Technology. Sport Force+ riders will appreciate easy and progressive cornering with maximum control and high-speed stability throughout the tyre service life. These characteristics were achieved by a combination of two different technologies, SCT and Finite Element Analyses (FEA), for definition of the tyre footprint.
In the second quarter of 2015, the following new dimensions will complete the range of the Sport Force+ tyre family:
