The main benefits of the new CRUISETEC™ for the rider are:

Enjoy performance-cruising which means great handling, line taking and line holding, Immediate response at all stages also in wet conditions and enhanced cornering grip and safety

Performance consistency which means handling is preserved throughout the entire tyre lifespan thanks to the combination of a solid tread pattern with its constant-curvature contours and dual-compound layout which preserves the tyre profile thanks to wear evenness

Smooth and effortless riding thanks to maximised line holding when entering and maintaining lean angles and comfort

Enhanced confidence and safety, also in the wet, which derives from the effective interaction of the tyre with electronic rider aids
