The latest generation of our summer high-performance model line. Featuring an innovative new compound, designed to improve safety and enhance driver confidence.
Low rolling resistance, outstanding safety and durability are the three main requirements that car tyres need to fulfil, both today and in the future. To drive progress in this area, the scientists and engineers at Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. conducted pioneering research into the molecular structure of tyres, using particle accelerators and advanced simulation computers. They succeeded in simulating and controlling the molecular structure of rubber compounds used for tyres at nano level; for example, they analysed where and how superfluous heat was generated in the tyre and how this development could be minimised. Heat means loss of energy for the tyre, and thus rolling resistance – which is ultimately responsible for fuel consumption. Advanced 4D-Nano Design technology is the result of these advanced findings in molecular structures. It enables savings in fuel consumption of up to five per cent to be achieved compared to conventional tyre models, and significantly improves the tyre’s performance in wet conditions.
Falken tyres with the ECORUN label feature reduced rolling resistance. By reducing energy loss through friction, they save on fuel consumption – good for the environment, and good for your budget.
Falken Tyre Europe GmbH is the European subsidiary of Japanese tyre manufacturer Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd. From its headquarters in Offenbach am Main, Germany, Falken Tyre Europe oversees the marketing of a complete portfolio of tyres for cars, trucks, vans and SUVs as supplier of OEM products and for the European aftermarket. The company has built up a sales network of around 8,000 tyre dealers throughout Europe, which act as our partners for sales and fitting of our quality products.
