Pirelli Cinturato P1: the best of Cinturato and P Zero technology
Asymmetric tread, new type of silica, tension control system: the Cinturato P1 is at the leading edge of Pirelli’s know-how. It uses both “green performance” technology from the Cinturato range, and that of the P Zero sports range.

The purpose of the tread developed by Pirelli is to balance the surface footprint, reducing energy dissipation without neglecting safety.
The tread has 3 grooves designed to evacuate water, which means lower risk of aquaplaning and improved braking distances on wet surfaces.
The continuity of the “step-shaped” tread design is the decisive factor in reducing noise emissions.
Structure and the compound
In every Pirelli tyre, there is a notion of driving pleasure. This should instil a positive feeling in the driver and a certain responsiveness.
For this reason the Cinturato P1 uses a tension control system. This is a textile reinforcement placed between the tread and the edge providing a greater level of stiffness.
For a tyre to be successful, the rubber is of great importance. The Cinturato P1 uses a new type of silica developed to offer a compromise between performance and energy efficiency.
In addition, the drag coefficient has been developed via the tread blocks and sidewalls of the Cinturato P1.
