NeoGen Features and Benefits
Deep circumferential grooves work in unison with the slanted three-dimensional tread blocks to evacuate water. This helps maintain contact with the road and provides increased wet traction.
The inner shoulder is made from one continuous block, which adds stability and reduces tread flex. By reducing tread flex, the tire wears more evenly -- even on vehicles with negative camber -- resulting in prolonged tire life.
The large outer shoulder blocks are designed to increase surface contact and provide improved traction while cornering.
Advanced Siping Technologies
3D Multiwave sipes are cut into interlocking ripples instead of straight lines so they provide additional wet traction while keeping the block firm to help reduce irregular wear.
