Bridgestone launches its first all-season light truck tyre

Bridgestone has launched its first-ever all-season tyre for the light truck segment, the Duravis All Season.

Engineered to last with a robust and durable construction, the new tyre delivers an excellent wear performance and reduced downtime periods. Plus, with a best-in-class EU label A-grade for wet grip and 3PMSF certification, Bridgestone says the Duravis All Season provides safety, peace of mind and convenience in all weather conditions year-round.

Designed with both small and large fleet operations in mind, Bridgestone’s new Duravis All Season tyres are ideal for professionals who want to maximise their business efficiency and stay in control with the same tyres throughout the year.

The robust tyre applies a sidewall protector rib to shield it from impacts with the curb. This not only helps to reduce frequent tyre damage and repair costs, but also cuts vehicle downtime. The Bridgestone Duravis All Season also provides great wear performance thanks to higher pattern stiffness. Plus, to further reduce operational costs, Bridgestone’s new light truck tyre applies a construction and cavity optimisation design for improved rolling resistance. This has enabled the tyre to achieve an EU label C-grade for fuel efficiency in most sizes.

The tyre will be available from August 2020, with several additional sizes releasing from September onwards. A total of 23 sizes will be available, including three HRD sizes and five high load sizes (10PR), to accommodate almost every type of vehicle and load with enhanced safety.

Emilio Tiberio, CTO and COO at Bridgestone EMIA said: “Today, more and more fleets are choosing all-season tyres because of the convenience they provide. We’re very excited to provide our customers with a durable, all-season model that can ensure peace of mind in all weather conditions, minimize downtime periods and reduce overall total cost of ownership. The Duravis All Season, our first-ever all-season tyre for light trucks, helps to provide the business efficiency fleets are seeking. I’m very proud of the team for delivering a tyre that ticks so many boxes.”
