Detailed product description
Pirelli’s patented state of the art compound made using a unique formula. Developed from years of motorsport experience including the pinnacle of motorsport: Formula 1. SmartNET Silica offers cyclists a truly uncompromising road cycling experience. It ensures low rolling resistance, grip on both wet and dry road surfaces, durability, puncture resistance, and a low overall weight to boot.
The unique longitudinally shaped silica particles manage to align and place themselves evenly throughout the compound. This offers a predictable response from the tyre and keeps the rolling resistance low. This in contrast to many tyres which often have irregular structures. The SmartNET Silica compound responds to a wet road surface. The silica and other particles in the compound align to create a strong lattice. This improves both durability and puncture resistance.
ICS - Ideal Contour Shaping
The shape of the tyre is just as important as the materials and tread pattern. Pirelli has used CAD software, repeated simulations, and follow-up analysis to optimise the contour and shape of the tyre. This optimises the contact points between the tyre and road surface, getting the most from the compound and tread design. Grip, stability, and a responsive yet controlled reaction to any road surface. The tyre performs equally well whether you’re on the flats, coming down a fast descend, or taking sharp turns.
