The PIRELLI-branded Serie 02 tyre range is expanding with the introduction of the H02 Pro Trailer, a new series of tyres designed for use on articulated trailers for large loads and volumes, single-or multi-axle, and ideally suited for long-haul operation.
The H02 Pro Trailer range benefits from the Serie 02 Prometeon technological innovations, and has been designed to offer the highest levels of efficiency and optimised operating costs. It offers new standards of safety and load capacity, and a fuel consumption category which is now Class A for the 435/50 and Class B for the 445/45.
Compared to the previous range, it offers improved safety (+20%, thanks to the greater wet grip performance, 3PMSF approval and new tread design); load capacity (+10%, up to 10 tonnes per axle); reduced rolling resistance (-20%) for lower fuel consumption; and installation operations are also streamlined (+20%).
Compared to the competition, the H02 Pro Trailer is claimed to be best-in-class in the 435/50 R 19.5 size for fuel consumption, wet grip performance and external rolling noise, while the 445/45 R 19.5 size is best-in-class for load index (up from 160 to 164), as well as being the only model among its premium competitors with 3PMSF marking and RFID sensor.
Like the whole Serie 02 series, the H02 Pro Trailer range has 3PMSF winter marking (which can only be applied to tyres which pass a specific test defined in UN Regulation No. 117), is fitted with an RFID sensor, and benefits from approval from the major European vehicle manufacturers.
