Bridgestone Americas Introduces Dueler A/T Revo 2
The next generation of all-terrain tyre in the Bridgestone Dueler family has been launched in North America, replacing a tyre line Bridgestone describes as having "set the standard for toughness, durability and quiet comfort." The Dueler A/T Revo 2 was first introduced to the market in July 2009 and is now available in 27 sizes from 15 through to 20-inch rim diameters.
“The original Dueler A/T Revo is a great tyre that’s provided top performance for customers for years,” said Phil Pacsi, vice president, Consumer Marketing, US & Canada Consumer Tire Sales division, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “This new generation Dueler has all the benefits of the original Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo, plus new technologies and design that make for an even better all-terrain driving experience.”
The second generation Dueler A/T Revo was developed in response to consumer demand for an all-terrain product that meets the needs of modern trucks, SUVs and CUVs, and Bridgestone states the tyre is the most “aggressive” within its light truck/SUV line-up. The tyre’s revolutionary tread design provides outstanding performance in a wide variety of driving conditions.
“The Dueler A/T Revo 2 serves both the highway driver and those who want to explore rougher terrain. The enhancements in the new tyre combine to make ‘one tire for all worlds,’ that is quiet, comfortable and durable, both on the road and off,” Pacsi continued.
According to Bridgestone, the Dueler A/T Revo 2 offers improved wet traction and rolling resistance. Passenger sizes in the range feature a dual layer tread, while the light truck metric sizes utilise Bridgestone’s “DuraTech” tread compound to resist chipping and tearing when used in demanding conditions. Other stated improvements include reduced road noise, made possible through optimising the tyre’s tread design, and increased biting edges and other technology features to maintain snow and off-road performance.
