D.O.T.-Compliant Competition Road Course Radial
The NT01 tyre is a D.O.T.-compliant dry competition radial designed with the weekend road racer in mind. The compound was developed to provide the best balance of traction, consistency, heat cycle performance and longevity. The NT01 delivers fast and consistent lap times for both the professional road-racer and the track-day enthusiast.
The NT01 is recommended for dry competition use.
»Large reinforced and continuous shoulder tread blocks for corning rigidity and stability.
»Stiffer internal construction for added response, handling and high-speed capabilities.
»Symmetric, rotation-specific tread design.
»Low void shoulder tread blocks separated by minimal shallow grooving to reduce tread squirm.
»Wide solid center tread rib for better steering response and straight line stability.
»Chamfered tread block edges that reduce stress and heat risers to reduce chunking.
»Spiral wound cap ply for high-speed stability and carcass heat dissipation.
»Tread compounds were tested at three different racetracks, including the Nürburgring, to aid in the selection of the best performing compound for this segment.
»Testing focused on balancing dry han-dling performance with good wear life.
»Improved compounding with the addition of silica for increased wet grip as well as stiffer carbon black and polymer chains to strengthen tire.
»Extremely high upturn for added sidewall strength and stiffness.
