Bridgestone - S001 RFT

Inheriting the technology used in the Potenza RE050, the tyre chosen for high performance cars the world over, takes the driving experience to a new level of wet and dry performance. Reducing the Potenza RE050`s four main grooves down to three enables a larger block on the tyre`s outside edge. This, combined with the new "Multi-Performance Block" and "60° Slant Lug", enables improved handling and braking performance in both wet and dry conditions.

A Load Index of 95 and Speed Rating Y indicates the tyre can carry a load of 690 kg at a maximum speed of 300 km/h .

BRIDGESTONE S001 RFT

Features & Benefits

  • Slick-style centre rib improves the handling response of the steering center.
  • With GUTT II Simulation the alignment, thickness and configuration of the straight rooves significantly reduce the rick of hydroplaning.
  • Block sipes are positioned at a 60° angle, with the same effect as the nose of an F1 racing car. Block rigidity has been optimised, improving both traction and braking performance.
  • Lateral grooves improve traction and braking. This combined with slick area, reduces wear on the inside edge and guards against becoming unbalanced with the outside edge.
  • The outside block, which takes most of the load when cornering, has been enlarged and reinforced to improve both wet and dry handling.
