Pirelli Launches New Range Of Tyres For SUVs

Pirelli has unveiled the new Scorpion tyre range dedicated to Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs). The latest range marks a complete renewal of the family that has specialised in the SUV market for more than 35 years, with the range tailor-made for premium models and featuring specialised tyres for different seasons.

The new Scorpion - Summer, All Season , and Winter tyre has been developed specifically to cater for the heavier weight, high centre of gravity and unique mechanics and driving dynamics that are the main characteristics of modern SUVs, said Pirelli in a release.

The  Scorpion tyre range features the most modern technologies available, with the ability to better adapt themselves to the performance of today’s vehicles: including those with ‘green’ powerplants, said company.

The Scorpion range has the highest number of homologations for electric or plug-in hybrid cars in the entire Pirelli portfolio, a process that began with the previous generation and continues today with the latest products. These tyres are recognisable through the ‘Elect’ marking on the sidewall.

Among the cutting-edge technologies offered by Pirelli tyres, a number of optional extras are available: Pirelli Noise Cancelling System (PNCS) helps reduce road noise inside the vehicle, while Run Flat and Seal Inside help drivers to continue travelling even after a puncture.

The entire new Scorpion range aims to achieve more than 400 original equipment homologations, with more than 50% of these for the latest electric vehicles.

The latest Pirelli Scorpion summer tyre features a new asymmetrical tread pattern which – thanks to the improved stiffness and shape of its longitudinal and lateral grooves – allows better braking both on dry and wet surfaces compared to the previous product.

About Scorpion Summer Tyre

The latest Pirelli Scorpion summer tyre features a new asymmetrical tread pattern which – thanks to the improved stiffness and shape of its longitudinal and lateral grooves – allows better braking both on dry and wet surfaces compared to the previous product.

The more even footprint of the new tyre tread, achieved thanks to the particular curvature of the profile, together with the stiffness of the tread and compound, ensure reduced rolling resistance and decreased fuel or battery consumption. All the different sizes of Scorpion are in the A or B classes of the European tyre label when it comes to rolling resistance.

This new summer tyre is now available in Europe in 26 sizes, from 18 to 21 inches, with more than 48 homologations already, of which over 75% are for electric vehicles. The new Scorpion is also very quiet, emitting up to three decibels less than the previous-generation tyre, according to the European tyre label. This means that the latest Scorpion tyre also comes with significant environmental benefits.

About Scorpion All Season Tyre

The new Scorpion All Season SF2 is aimed at people who want to comply with winter tyre regulation but don’t want to bother with seasonal tyre changes. It’s available in 33 sizes between 17 and 21 inches in this launch phase.

On the shoulder, the M+S symbols accompanied by the 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snowflake) marking certifies excellent performance even in winter conditions. Tyres with this 3PMSF marking are covered by European legislation as a  guarantee of compliance with winter tyre traffic regulations.

The Scorpion All Season SF2 features a compound and a tread pattern inspired by that of the Cinturato, with some unique peculiarities to cater for the specific characteristics of SUVs.

The directional tread pattern of the Scorpion All Season SF2 is characterised by prominent V-shaped grooves that retain snow (improving vehicle control on snowy surfaces) while draining water from the footprint when driving on wet roads and helping to prevent sudden aquaplaning.

About Scorpion Winter 2 Tyre

The new winter tyre for SUVs focuses on safety in all types of seasonal conditions: from snowy to wet surfaces as well as slippery surfaces and dry roads at low temperatures. The innovations pioneered by the new Cinturato winter tyre are carried through into the world of SUVs, with a tread that features ‘extendable’ variable geometry sipes.

Thanks to the 3D structure, these sipes change shape according to the state of wear of the tread, going from a linear shape to a sinusoidal (zig zag) pattern, which increases their surface area and effectiveness. This technology allows the Scorpion Winter 2 to perform on snow, wet or dry surfaces even when worn.

There are roughly 51 metres of sipes that deliver greater grip on snow: an increase of 20% of useful area in compared to the previous Scorpion Winter. The tread blocks are also reinforced and larger than those on the Cinturato, to meet all the demands of modern SUVs and deliver greater grip, which leads to excellent braking and driving performance both on snow and wet surfaces.
