It sounds like a ride at Alton Towers, but the new Adrenalin RE0002 is the latest addition to the premium Potenza range of tyres from Bridgestone.
As the name might suggest, the tyre is targeted at motoring enthusiasts ‘who love a sporty feel’.
According to Bridgestone, the new tyre offers a more exciting, sportier everyday driving experience through outstanding dry grip and stability.
Within Bridgestone’s existing premium sport range the Potenza S001 remains the flagship product for high-performance and luxury cars in both the OE and replacement markets, offering perfectly balanced wet-oriented performance.
The Potenza Adrenalin RE002 by contrast is a pure sport, replacement market tyre largely tuned for dry performance, combining razor-sharp steering response and precision handling for the two-seat roadster, hot hatchback or tuned car driver.
To enhance dry handling and sheer driving pleasure, the tread design boasts large, stiff outer blocks with a 3D connection between shoulder and adjacent rib, giving the tyre an exhilarating cornering ability. Road grip and sporty manoeuvring are enhanced by the wide offset rib design with grooved edge and waved centre block.
The Adrenalin also gives the wet security drivers need in European weather conditions through its new “pulse” groove and deflector technology, which breaks the water film faster in front of the footprint and deflects it away from under the tyre, increasing resistance to hydroplaning.
Tomio Fukuzumi, Director Consumer Products, Bridgestone Europe said: “With this range expansion, the new Potenza Adrenalin RE002 is appealing to new Bridgestone consumers. We are targeting enthusiasts who love a sporty feel and want an alternative to touring tyres.”
The new Potenza Adrenalin RE002 is available in 15 to 18 inch sizes, 60 to 40 series.
