DEBUT: Pirelli unveil CV Carrier
Pirelli have unveiled the new Carrier, a high-technology tyre developed specially for vans.
The launch, which follows three million kilometres of European fleet testing, offers long life, decreased fuel consumption and better wet performance compared to previous offerings.
It was created using ‘state-of-the-art design criteria’, utilised on Pirelli’s headlining products such as P Zero and Cinturato P7.
Testing was undertaken by 20 key fleets in Italy, Germany, France, Great Britain, Spain and Turkey, with more than 50 transport workers trying out the new tyres.
Pirelli claim tyre mileage is up by 30% and braking distances reduced by 10%.
The tyre will be available on the replacement market in sizes from 14 to 17inches, with the Carrier family completed by the Camper in 15 and 16inch sizes.
