Pirelli Launches R:01 “Eco-Friendly” Regional Truck Tyre
Pirelli has announced the launch of its new regional truck tyre, the R:01. Developed by the company’s research centres, the tyre represents Pirelli’s attempt to meet the requirements of professional operators in terms of mileage yield, reduced consumption, retreading potential and environmental friendliness. Pirelli also presented the H88 Amaranto and G88 series to the international press, developed for long distance transport and for construction vehicles respectively. The latest TS:01 series for lorries was also announced. All four products, according to Pirelli, are themed on the efforts to cut costs.
The Italian group also presented a new package of services to support operators: the Pirelli Retreading System – the renovated Pirelli system to retread tyres; CQ24 International for road assistance; and Credit Tyre – the financing system for fleets and retailers. The growing specialization of the Italian group in the transport sector has also spread to training through the magazine Truck, a new free Pirelli house organ which will be added to courses organised by the Group to update and inform.
