The Bridgestone B290 is made for performance. It performs well in wet and dry conditions and the tread patter allows one to brake even in wet conditions. To reduce the noise created while driving, Bridgestone has carved five different tread blocks on the tyre.
The channel created on the surface of the tyre ensures resistance to aquaplaning which means that the water which comes in contact with tyre patch is channeled through the grooves to exit from the surface so that the tyre can get more traction in wet conditions. The braking capacity increases and a shorter braking distance can be expected from the Bridgestone B290 series.
The superior quality rubber used in manufacturing the tyres provides ample amount of comfort and smoothness to the rider. The capability of resisting hydroplaning allows the rider to drive with confidence. The tyre tread and the groove channelling ensures a smooth ride and the stability that the rider requires to deal with the corners.
Michelin Energy XM2:
Michelin's latest generation of tyres are made to deliver the best performance on Indian roads, offering a perfect match of safety, longevity and fuel efficiency. The tyres helps in braking and stops up to 1.7 meters shorter based on external tests done by Shanghai Motor Vehicles Centre on MICHELIN Energy XM2, measuring dry road braking distance from 100 to 0 km/h.
The tread compound is more flexible. It better adapts itself to the irregularities of the road surface (Micro-Adaptive Compound). Then, the wider grooves on the tread evacuate a greater volume of water, reducing risk of aquaplaning (Wide Tread Grooves).
MICHELIN Energy XM2 is known for being environmentally friendly reducing tyre particles that cause tyre pollution. The tyres are known to increase the fuel economy thanks to its compounds and elements used while constructing the tyre. It is also suitable to be driven with since it ensures maximum smoothness and comfort even on bad section of roads that are found in the Indian terrains.
CEAT MILAZE X3:
If you need tyres that can not only run longer than usual but also offer uncompromised safety, then the CEAT Milaze X3 is the right set of tyres that you would need. The tyres have been specially designed to offer long tread life and superior performance in the long run also. The tyres provide superior traction that is required in wet conditions.
The innovative tread compound and robust construction minimize tread wear and the tread pattern offers confident wet and dry grip performance. The tread compound provides enhanced tyre life of up to 1 lakh kms. This is an assured number provided by the manufacturers themselves. The high rubber content helps in uniform wearing of the tyre to improve fuel economy numbers. The wide circumferential grooves ensure superior braking in wet conditions.
Apollo AMAZER 4G LIFE:
The Apollo Amazer 4G life is well known for its High durability, Improved life, improved braking and enhanced resistance toward punctures. The tyre is constructed with ultra-high wear resistant compound which gives longer life.
