P Zero Race 4S
A FOUR-SEASON TYRE WITH RACING FEEL
Like the P ZERO Race and Race SL, the other tyres in the P ZERO Race family, the Race 4S tyre employs the new SmartEVO proprietary compound, which is characterised by a ternary blend of polymers with "intelligent" behaviour, designed to provide high levels of performance in terms of grip, conditions of use, rolling resistance and reactivity of the tyre even in colder climates.
Drawing on more than a century of Pirelli's experience in making high-performance tyres, the Milanese company's team of engineers has enhanced the compound's special qualities by orienting them towards specific four-season use, thanks to meticulous design work on the tread pattern.
The angles, depth, number, and distance of Pirelli's typical "flash" sipes have been optimised to improve grip on slippery and uneven surfaces. The new Race 4S, like all the other tyres in the P ZERO Race family, also features a casing adapted to the new wider rim standards. As a result, each size has a wider tread than the corresponding P ZERO Velo 4S due to its construction and the consequent dimensional adaptation: a wider and shorter footprint, to the benefit of smoothness, puncture protection and cornering control.
The new P ZERO Race 4S is the perfect choice for those who want a four-season performance tyre that offers a "racing" feeling all year round, whether racing or training. This is precisely why it is the choice of the World Tour teams with whom Pirelli is a partner. UAE Team Emirates, TREK-Segafredo and AG2R Citroën put the new tyres through their paces during the recent winter training camps, completing the work of refining product specifications for racing that is part of the Pirelli way of working.
