About the V.ply technology
Originally inspired by racing tire design, the innovative V.ply technology enhances cross-ply technology with multiple cords arranged in a recognizable V-shape. The V.ply technology combines robustness and tire stability with rim seat, force transmission and steering response in demanding vehicle operations. Up to 22 layers of high-resistance polymer fiber, precisely aligned in a V-pattern and embedded in up to three wire beads, deliver a sturdy tire construction. The V.ply construction technology contributes to extraordinarily strong sidewalls, providing excellent protection against tire punctures and cuts.
