Prometeon launches Pirelli-branded Serie 02 truck tyre range

Prometeon Tyre Group used a recent event in Venice, Italy to officially launch its Pirelli-branded Serie 02 truck tyre range.

The new Serie 02 range, which has been on sale in the EMEA region since April, represents the most important product launch in Prometeon’s history, according to the Group.

It says that a lot of work has been carried out on formulations and manufacturing processes in order to obtain a very balanced product with high safety standards and the best performance in respect of sustainability principles.

When compared to its predecessor, the Serie 02 offers improved rolling resistance, about 10 per cent better mileage, longer durability, and stronger wear uniformity. Also for the first time, a Prometeon long haul tyre is rated ‘A’ for fuel consumption; namely the Profuel line.

The “Prometeon Engineered” logo appears on the entire Serie 02 range, as it is the first generation of tyres completely developed in the Group’s R&D centres in Italy, Turkey, Brazil and Egypt.

Elsewhere, weight has been optimised without any compromise in performance, according to Prometeon, which brings benefit to the life cycle of the tyres. In addition, the range boasts the 3PMSF winter marking, is equipped with an RFID sensor, and has been approved by major European vehicle manufacturers.

At the launch of the Prometeon Serie 02 truck tyre range were from left to right: Roberto Righi, general manager; Francesco Antonacci, CEO Region Europe; Alexandre Brigantim, chief technical officer; and Sabina Oriani, head of marketing.
