Lassa showcases upcoming eco-range
In addition to the latest tyres and related equipment available for purchase now, numerous exhibitors at Reifen 2012 are showing concept and upcoming products. One such company is Turkish brand Lassa, which is displaying its Greenways range. Vicki Tillson, UK branch manager for Lassa manufacturer Brisa, told Tyres & Accessories that the Greenways eco-friendly passenger car tyre line-up is scheduled for release in 2013 and will be available in 20 sizes from 14 to 16-inch rim diameters, 70 to 55 aspect ratio and T and H speed ratings.
Greenways is described by its manufacturer as providing “environment-friendly driving comfort without sacrificing performance and safety.” Features said to be found on the upcoming tyre include an asymmetric tread pattern designed to deliver a smoother ride and a compound intended to minimise rolling resistance. Brisa says the Greenways range “lasts longer compared to tyres of its class, reducing the use of raw materials and further reducing the need for energy to be used for recycling.
