SPORTS PERFORMANCE ON ROAD AND SAFE DRIVING IN OFF ROAD CONDITIONS
Engineered for high/sporty performance on road and safe driving in off road conditions. The attractive tread pattern makes it the ideal tyre to combine with personalised wheels for a striking aesthetic effect. Ideal for drivers seeking higher levels of grip and precise steering response.
The new Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico is built with Pirelli's newest evolution and sophisticated MIRS process - Modular Integrated Robotized System. A tire dedicated to the most powerful light truck and SUV's, it offers increased safety margins while enhancing the driving experience.
Full and compact external shoulder blocks increase dry handling performance and safety, while the inner shoulder with its deeper and more regular cuts is geared towards maximizing traction.
Low acoustic noise, high percision at high speed and excellent grip when braking thanks to the solid center rib. 4 Wide longitudinal grooves for water evacuation of the foot print increases safety and wet performance.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
