New Potenza S001 Run-Flat

S001 RFT provides the pleasure of ride comfort comparable to conventional tyres
The new Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT provides the superior driving performance of the Bridgestone Potenza S001 combined with the added safety of
Bridgestone Run-Flat technology – a state-of-the-art package that now offers the pleasure of ride comfort comparable to conventional tyres.
New heat-controlling technologies improve comfort
This higher level of comfort has been made possible by the development of innovative “heat controlling” technologies, now applied to the Bridgestone
Potenza S001 RFT, which enable Bridgestone engineers to reduce the vertical stiffness of the Run-Flat sidewall.
Firstly, an advanced NanoPro-TechTM polymer that improves durability by reducing heat generation caused by internal friction during tyre
rotation, especially when running flat.
Secondly, Bridgestone’s innovative Cooling Fin technology: a unique solution that uses disturbances in the airflow created by small protrusions on the
tyre surface to keep the sidewall cool. These technologies are not both applied systematically to all tyre sizes; their use depends on the tyre aspect
ratio and preference of individual vehicle manufacturers.
Launched in 2010, the Bridgestone Potenza S001 is Bridgestone’s flagship UHP sport tyre, designed to give the world’s most powerful sports cars
exhilarating control and quick-fire response with good fuel efficiency.
The new Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT now combines this sporty character with a high-level of safety and comfort.
In the replacement market, the first 4 sizes, 40 to 55 series, are available from August 2011.
