Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Sport Motorcycle Tyre
The Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV is the fourth generation tyre to join the Diablo Rosso family. With todays 1000cc sports bikes pushing out over 200BHP a different design philosophy has been used. The front Diablo Rosso IV has two compounds in 3 bands, the centre band is high silica content (Full Silica) and occupies around 50% of the section width giving high levels of grip in the wet and cold. The side areas have a sportier compound, also high in silica, and offering excellent grip even at low temperatures
For the rear Diablo Rosso IV tyre has two different solutions to enhance the characteristics of different motorcycles according to their weight and the power generated.
The rear sizes up to 190/50 ZR 17 are bi-compound and arranged according to a Cap & Base scheme. The harder of the compounds at the base, which lies between the tread and carcass, is also present in the central tread section. Full Silica and ensures a quick warm up and high mileage, as well as ensuring an optimal thermal balance along the entire profile. The side compounds, also high in silica, are softer and have been developed specifically for DIABLO ROSSO IV in order to offer quick a warm-up and the grip of a racing product, therefore increasing the temperature range.
The rear Diablo Rosso IV with sizes 190/55 ZR 17 and above are divided into five areas using three different compounds:
The harder central compound provides high-speed stability, wear uniformity and mileage, while the high silica content also ensures a quick warm up and excellent chemical grip on a wet surface;
The intermediate compound, on the sides of the central compound, is softer and covers intermediate lean angles. It has a Full Silica formulation that provides an excellent chemical grip both on dry and wet surfaces;
The shoulder compound is 100% Carbon Black and derives directly from the compounds of DIABLO™ Supercorsa SC used in endurance competitions. This compound thanks to the Cap&Base scheme that guarantees its thermal balance, is able to offer support at full lean and traction during acceleration, managing even the torque generated by the latest generation of superbikes.
This along with revised tread patterns and profile makes the Diablo Rosso IV a true next generation and not just an evolution of its predecessor.
