IntelliMax Groove Technology
The new FUELMAX S sees the introduction of the latest FUELMAX Technology, which presents in tread design IntelliMax Groove Technology providing enhanced rolling resistance compared to its predecessors. A special manufacturing technique allows a hidden pattern to be molded into the tire.
The 3 hidden raindrop groves close when rolling through the footprint. The ribs support each other stiffening the tread. When 50% worn the IntelliMax grooves open. Because the tread depth is lower the rib movement is lower and does not need the support of the closed IntelliMax grooves.
