As such, the tyre comes with QuietTred Technology which the tread design helps to dampen noise with an increased number of pitches and optimized sequence and coupled with a closed shoulder groove design.

There's also FlexContact Technology, which is a shock absorbing cushion layer
compound with optimized formulation to help increase comfort levels.
