The struc­ture

Motorcycle Monthly - - Pirelli -

Wind­ing a very thin steel wire around the car­cass at key points dur­ing con­struc­tion isn’t ex­actly new tech and it’s not ex­actly ex­clu­sive in the mo­tor­cy­cle tyre world ei­ther – but what Pirelli have done with the new tyre is learn how to vary the amount of winds and the ex­act spac­ing be­tween them at the most ben­e­fi­cial ar­eas of the tyre’s car­cass be­fore the rub­ber is laid on top.

This gives the tyres the struc­tural strength to be able to hold up to the stresses put through them at high an­gles of lean but it also means that when on mo­tor­ways and tour­ing at pace the tyre feels very sta­ble and ‘qui­etens down’ the tyre noise and vi­bra­tion through the bike.
