New Potenza S001 Run Flat

The Potenza S001 is Bridgestone’s flagship UHP sport tyre, designed to give the world’s most powerful sports cars exhilarating control and quick-fire response with good fuel efficiency.

Combining comfort, safety and performance

The new Potenza S001 RFT provides the superior driving performance of Potenza S001 combined with the added safety of Bridgestone Run Flat technology – a state-of-the-art package that now offers the pleasure of ride comfort comparable to conventional tyres.

New heat-controlling technologies improve comfort

This higher level of comfort has been made possible by the development of innovative “heat controlling” technologies, now applied to the Potenza S001 RFT, which enable Bridgestone engineers to reduce the vertical stiffness of the run flat sidewall.

Firstly, an advanced NanoPro-TechTM polymer that improves durability by reducing heat generation caused by internal friction during tyre rotation, especially when running flat.

Secondly, Bridgestone’s innovative Cooling Fin technology: a unique solution that uses disturbances in the airflow created by small protrusions on the tyre surface to keep the sidewall cool.

Launched in 2010, the Potenza S001 is Bridgestone’s flagship UHP sport tyre, designed to give the world’s most powerful sports cars exhilarating control and quick-fire response with good fuel efficiency. The new S001 RFT now combines this sporty character with a high-level of safety and comfort. The first 4 sizes, 40 to 55 series, will be available from August 2011.
