Say hello to new generation of Pirelli tyres for buses and coaches engaged in regional and long-distance service. The H:01 Coach line-up includes the FH:01 all-axle and the specialised TH:01 drive tyre fitment. Manufacturer Prometeon says its R&D team aimed to develop a product that satisfies the needs of operators in the sector while keeping pace with the evolution of both vehicle technologies and regulations covering CO2 emissions and noise.
With the introduction of the Pirelli H:01 Proway line, Prometeon Tyre Group says it is offering tyres that provide “maximum efficiency in long-distance transportation” thanks to reduced rolling resistance and improved durability. Two tyres are available in this latest evolution of the :01 Series – the steer axle Pirelli FH:01 Proway and the drive axle TH:01 Proway.
Sales within the premium and tier 2 segments of Europe’s commercial tyre market have remained level for years, but the tier 3 segment is growing in leaps and bounds. For Prometeon, the company behind the Pirelli commercial tyre brand, this trend represents an opportunity it doesn’t wish to miss out on. It presented its new Anteo brand to potential distributors on 26 March, displaying a launch range of six lines.
