Lassa Launches New Impetus Revo
Lassa has announced the introduction of the new High Performance Impetus Revo tyre. In a like-for-like competitor comparison, the new Lassa Impetus Revo “performed well in all areas and exceptionally when compared for aquaplaning and riding comfort,” Lassa representatives told Tyres & Accessories. 27 Revo sizes will be phased in during 2008, with a furher 15 further sizes following in 2009.
Company test comparisons found that the tyre offers excellent wet and dry road grip; high resistance to aquaplaning; and long life and lower fuel consumption. Developed in conjunction with the dedicated research and design centre in Turkey, the new Impetus Revo particularly improved the tread’s pitch-sequence tread design. Based on a silica-based compound, the new tyre includes an optimised sidewall design, four circumferential main grooves, and a continuous centre rib.
