To do so, Bridgestone developed a new rubber compound called Nano Pro-Tech™. This technology aims at reducing the rolling resistance coefficient, and as a result fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Bridgestone is announcing about 3% lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. To be verified.

The tread developed for this tyre used special blocks and fine grooves to enhance grip, and braking on wet surfaces.
