Dunlop Promotes New Grandtrek Touring A/S Tyre
Dunlop has announced the introduction of the all-season SUV tyre Grandtrek Touring A/S. The new tyre for modern Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) has been developed to include Dunlop’s Touch Technology for balanced, all-season, all-condition performance and strong road feedback. According to the manufacturer, the launch of Grandtrek Touring supports the continued growth in popularity of SUVs.
With its all-season technology, Grandtrek Touring encompasses a range of properties that are designed to ensure top performance. The tyre features a unique polymer blend tread compound for driving in all weather conditions. The Grandtrek Touring’s tapered shoulder grooves, are said to provide “innovative stiffness distribution,” while the asymmetric tread design reportedly combines with the shoulder grooves to optimize the tyre’s all-weather capabilities. The reinforced, stiffer sidewall controls the important displacement of energy that is usual from large vehicles when cornering.
“Not only are drivers supposed to ‘feel’ the road more than ever before, they should also be able to react faster to any changes”, said Frédéric Schilling, Brand Director of Dunlop, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Dunlop invests in constant technical improvement of tyres. The most important parameter for our engineers is the quality of road feedback our tyres can deliver. As a premium brand, Dunlop optimizes all key tyre performances with road feedback in mind. Touch Technology is the result of significant research: we asked consumers what they expect from their tyres in order to provide the right product.”
Schilling added: “The new Grandtrek Touring is designed to fulfil the special needs of SUV drivers. People who own a heavy SUV want to be able to rely on their car in any situation and in all weather conditions – without losing the driving pleasure.”
