Bridgestone’s new street sports tyre with superior handling and stability
MALAYSIA (18 May 2020) — Bridgestone Tyre Sales (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Bridgestone Corporation, the world’s leading rubber and tyre company, announced the official launch of its POTENZA Adrenalin RE004 today. Developed with Bridgestone’s cutting edge tyre development and technology, this is a premium street sports tyre that promises greater driving pleasure with maximum handling and high responsiveness on both wet and dry surfaces. POTENZA Adrenalin RE004 is engineered to meet the demands and expectations of sporty individuals, by enhancing their driving experience.
POTENZA Adrenalin RE004 offers superb dry handling and wet braking, while complying with ECE R117-02, an international regulation established by United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) that governs the tyre requirements for sound emission, rolling resistance and wet performance. The tyre features a combination of enhanced rigidity via its triple and half grooves, and has a quick response for maximum control and stability during braking and cornering. The highly rigid connecting blocks enhance tyre sensitivity while reducing excess movements at high speeds. In addition, the aggressive and dynamic tread pattern delivers superior handling that is coupled with a stylish and sporty aesthetic.
Featuring Bridgestone technology and compound innovation, POTENZA Adrenalin RE004’s wider rib maximises the contact patch on the road, allowing even pressure distribution and a consistently high level of drive performance. The new innovative compound features an evenly-spread silica that improves both wet and dry performance, as well as lowers rolling resistance to reduce the vehicle’s environmental footprint.
POTENZA Adrenalin RE004 is available in 17 different sizes ranging from 15 to 17 inches and can be purchased from Bridgestone Authorized Dealers nationwide
