Aeolus will take the opportunity of Autopromotec 2017 in Bologna (24-28 May) to stage the official launch of its third generation truck and bus tyre range.

Aeolus offers a wide range of 67 tyres, with sizes from 17.5 inch to 22.5 inch, covering long distance, regional, on/off highway, off-road, urban, and winter tyre applications. The product range was developed for the European market after Aeolus signed a technology license agreement with Pirelli for TBR tyres. As a result, many new technologies are used in the third-generation products, including new structures, new compounds, and new manufacturing processes.

Aeolus has named the third generation products the ‘Neo’ series. The brand adds that the end-user can distinguish these new products from Aeolus’ first and second generation products, since a new brand logo and a more attractive sidewall design have been employed.

The new products focus both on improved mileage and rolling resistance, Aeolus states. The rolling resistance will improve one grade in most sizes compared with second generation products. Select drive and steer tyres are also enhanced for driving in winter conditions and are marked with the three peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.

Aeolus concludes that “with advanced scientific technology and high manufacturing standard, the third generation Aeolus products will meet the requirement of demanding fleets and bus companies, helping them to reduce their operating costs in people and cargo transportation.”

The new Aeolus range comes to market as TP Industrial Holding, a company entirely held by Pirelli owner Marco Polo International Italy SpA, commences the full integration of its industrial activities with CNRC’s assets under the banner of Prometeon Tyre Group. The transfer of technologies from Pirelli to Aeolus exemplifies the establishment of a Prometeon brand ladder, as discussed by the erstwhile Pirelli Industrial in a presentation given at an event in May 2016, coinciding with Essen’s Reifen show.
