Pirelli pushes the performance envelope
with the P6000. A totally innovative, freshly patented "new wave"
tread design which incorporates an almost continuous, & therefore
exceptionally stable, tread block running from the center to the
shoulder of the tire, separated by elliptical water clearing
channels running across the tread area. Born in CAD/CAM experiments,
this unique tread design combines tread block stability with wet
weather safety while minimizing noise generation.
With the latest generation of silica
based compounds, Pirelli technologists have solved the problem of
mixing silica & black fillers with synthetic polymers to provide
exceptional low rolling resistance & high wet grip.
The "unseen invention" of Pirelli,
the P6000 carcass has been specifically designed to reduce weight
& to amplify the attributes of the new tread pattern & compound
combination. Reduced unsprung masses, reduced rolling resistance,
enhanced comfort & up to 186 mph (300 km/hr) performance in one
