Words by Afzal Rawuther
Michelin has today announced the launch of its Pilot Sport 4 range of tyres in India. The Michelin Pilot Sport 4 has been designed in collaboration with various automotive manufacturers, says Michelin. The tyre giant also claims that its continued experience in motorsports, particularly in Formula E has been instrumental in the development of this range of tyres.
Mohan Kumar, Executive Vice President, Michelin India said on the occasion, “Michelin Pilot Sport 4 is designed to give premium and sports car motorists the pleasure of driving without compromising on performance, safety and longevity. The technological innovations in the ultra-responsive tread of this tyre come from Michelin Group’s longstanding experience of innovating for motor racing, most recently for Formula E and our in-depth expertise of dynamic interactions between the architecture, tread pattern, and materials that ensure optimal management of the contact patch with the road.”
The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 4 has an inbuilt wheel-rim protector; hybrid aramid and nylon reinforcement of the tyre coupled with light-weight fibre construction for improved handling and directional stability. The Formula E based design provides superior grip and braking in both dry and wet conditions with minimal tyre noise thereby improving NVH levels.
The complete range is currently available for purchase through Michelin authorised distribution channels.
