Comfort Above All
- Maximum comfort
- Reduced road noise
- Smoother journey
Turanza T005A offers an exceptionally comfortable driving experience for both short and long distance journeys. This flagship tyre features variable pitch that reduces pattern noise and high-angle sipes that are fine-tuned to soften tyre impact on the road leading to less road noise. In addition, the improved tyre contact shape and reinforced sidewall help reduce vibrations. Through Bridgestone’s advanced tyre technologies and various on-the-road tests, Turanza T005A is designed and developed to be equipped with an optimised contact shape that ensures consistent contact pressure on the road to reduce shock and impact noise for better comfort.
Turanza T005A has also been improved at the molecular level, with Bridgestone introducing an exclusive Nano Pro-Tech™ compound for this tyre. The new compound is engineered to strengthen the bond between silica and polymer to increase the contact area, resulting in reduced heat generation and energy loss, leading to better wet performance and safety. Lastly, chamfering on the tyre prevents deformation and ensures even contact with the road for improved braking performance.
The angle of sipes and contact line are adjusted to specific degrees to softens the tyre impact on the road and reduce the tyre pattern noise.
Optimised Pitch Variation
Randomised pitch variation has been applied to every tread block on the inside shoulder, centre and outside shoulder of the tyre. The tone of each tread block is then varied to dampen the tyre noise.
Sipe edges are rounded to prevent deformation to ensure flat contact area of the tyre and road, improving the braking performance.
Combining silica and polymer with the application of Nano Pro-Tech™, improving the wet performance. With Nano Pro-Tech™ and sustainable dispersibility improvement agent, the contact area between silica and polymer increases with stronger bonding, while reducing heat generation and energy loss for better wet performance.
Optimised Contact Design
Application of consistent contact pressure between the tyre and road, reducing road shock and impact noise, leading to improved comfort.
Construction of stiffer tyre sidewall (except for low aspect ratio tyre) for better damping and improved comfort.
