GitiSynergyH2 tyre ADAC ‘Good’ rating ‘an achievement to be celebrated’
Giti Tire has called the ‘Good’ rating awarded to the GitiSynergyH2 high-performance tyre in the ADAC 2022 15” summer tyre test “an achievement to be celebrated.” The tyre was the only sub-premium brand model of the six tyres to achieve this distinction. It was assessed against sixteen other patterns in size 185/65R15 88H in dry and wet road performance, comfort and noise, fuel consumption and wear and tear. It was praised for its all-round performance. The GitiSynergyH2 has been classed as ‘Highly Recommended’ by the Swiss TCS and Austrian OAMTC automobile clubs.
Fabio Pecci-Boriani, senior product manager PCR, SUV, Light Truck for Giti Tire (Europe), said: “The ADAC test is designed with some of the strictest and most demanding rules in the industry, which is why the excellent performance of our GitiSynergyH2 tyre is an achievement to be celebrated.
“Our R&D department in Hannover, Germany has been particularly meticulous in the creation of the Giti product range and the second generation tyres for Europe, and the results are beginning to speak for themselves. We have a portfolio products that deliver undeniable quality, efficiency and performance.”
The GitiSynergyH2 received its aftermarket launch in April 2021, having already secured fitments with the VW Group with the manufacturer’s first A-A labelled tyre. Available in 46 passenger car and dedicated SUV sizes, the range fits rims from 14 to18”, section widths from 165 to 235, and series sizes from 50 to 70. The range also has patterns with speed indices across T, H, V, W and Y. The range therefore targets compact and family cars, crossover vehicles and small SUVs.
The tyre was designed and engineered at Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover, with testing at the company’s MIRA facility in the UK as well as key locations in Germany and Spain. It is Giti’s first European tyre to utilise the manufacturer’s AdvanZtech technology platform. Giti’s globally-integrated, company-wide R&D system boosts the sharing and utilisation of specialised and advanced technology to create tyres which enhance the overall driving experience.
As a result, the second generation GitiSynergy’s newly developed tread compound helps to delivers seven per cent better wet braking, five per cent better dry handling and a three per cent increase in dry braking over the previous generation pattern. The new layout provides precise and stable handling behaviour and a four per cent improvement in aquaplaning resistance, Giti adds. Rolling resistance has been improved due thanks to the tyre’s new lightweight carcass. Finally, the tyre’s mileage potential has been increased by “almost 20 per cent,” Giti states.
