Bridgestone has launched its Duravis Van tyre, which it claims delivers maximum efficiency during daily operating conditions.
From regional to last mile delivery, the Bridgestone Duravis Van minimises downtime and contributes to reducing total cost of ownership, making it the ideal tyre for professionals who want to optimise tyre management, while prioritising safety and reliability.
The EV-ready Bridgestone Duravis Van has been developed to meet customer demands and boost business efficiency. According to tests carried out by independent TÜV SÜD, the new Bridgestone Duravis Van tyre offers best-in-class mileage for extended tyre life as well as best-in-class dry and wet braking performances.
The Bridgestone Duravis Van also achieves the highest EU label rating for wet grip, helping to keep drivers safe on the road, even in challenging wet-weather conditions.
Compared to its predecessor, the Duravis R660, Bridgestone says the Duravis Van delivers a 21 per cent improvement in rolling resistance, securing an EU label Grade B for rolling resistance in most sizes. This means greater fuel/energy efficiency, which translates to enhanced fuel savings or extended battery range for businesses.
The Bridgestone Duravis Van presents various innovations including a new symmetric tread pattern, cavity crown optimisation, and new sipes design and void distribution – all benefitting from a new enhanced contact technology to amplify its performance capabilities.
Innovative mixing also improves chemical reaction control, balancing the reinforcing mechanism and rolling resistance. Bridgestone’s Enliten Technology is also included.
Suited to both ICE and EVs, the Duravis Van delivers decreased noise for electric vehicle drivers when compared to its predecessor, offering a reduction of 2db in pass-by noise, earning it an EU label A grade.
Developed in Bridgestone’s European R&D Centre, the Duravis Van tyre will be available in 26 sizes from January 2023 onwards and will also be included in the new Fleetcare mobility solution offerings to enable fleets to be even more efficient.
