Pirelli has launched Pen­tathlon D, its first tire in the Pen­tathlon prod­uct fam­ily, one ded­i­cated to pre­mium long haul drive ap­pli­ca­tions in North Amer­ica. Af­ter a suc­cess­ful pi­lot phase of ex­ten­sive test­ing, re­search and de­vel­op­ment, Pen­tathlon D is one of the lat­est tires to launch from TP Com­mer­cial So­lu­tions LLC, an en­tity of the Pirelli Brand of Ra­dial Truck Tires, Agri­cul­tural Tires and Off-the Road Tires in the US and Canada.

Fea­tur­ing the most ad­vanced Pirelli tech­nol­ogy, tai­lored to the North Amer­i­can mar­ket, Pen­tathlon D is a for­mi­da­ble pre­mium of­fer­ing that gives fleets the best of both worlds – ex­tremely high mileage, and fuel sav­ings, and low emis­sion ben­e­fits as a Smart­way ver­i­fied tire with Ecoim­pact fea­tures.

Pen­tathlon D is the first tire to launch in the Pen­tathlon prod­uct fam­ily for pre­mium long haul needs in the Us/canada. This tire has five dis­tinct ar­eas that distin­guish it: 1. High mileage – a dual layer tread com­pound is in­cor­po­rated into the de­sign for long last­ing per­for­mance

2. En­ergy ef­fi­ciency –

achieved via a spe­cial­ized un­der­tread com­pound to pro­vide lower rolling re­sis­tance, and there­fore lower fuel con­sump­tion and CO2 emis­sions 3. Even wear – an op­ti­mized pat­tern ge­om­e­try and 3SB belt evo­lu­tion en­sures durable, even wear 4. High trac­tion – a di­rec­tional tread pat­tern for ex­cel­lent grip on wet and dry

5. High re­tread­abil­ity –

Pirelli’s patented Spi­ral Ad­vanced Tech­nol­ogy for Truck (SATT) tech­nol­ogy, com­bined with Hexa Bead Wire de­liv­ers the ul­ti­mate re­tread­abil­ity.
