"It's a sensitivity. . .to feel how the tire reacts to changes in the roadway," said Andy Traicoff, director of Dunlop in the North American region. More tangibly, the technology initiative includes:
- Multi-Radius Tread technology, which ensures even pressure distribution in the contact patch and a larger tire footprint.
- JointLess Band technology
- A stability rib in the tread design helps maintain constant road contact
- Solid shoulder construction
