Safe & Green: Cyber™ Tyre “Lean”

  • The most advanced system for measuring tyre pressure and temperature
  • It also offers a series of additional information in order to optimise tyre pressure under all load conditions, with additional benefits in terms of fuel consumption

The normal use of a car having tyres whose pressure is 20% less than its recommended pressure may result in up to 3% higher fuel consumption (with a consequent increase in environmental pollution), as well as 25% greater irregular wear and tear on the tyre tread, which reduces the lifetime of the tyre by 30%. This has led to the need to install a tyre pressure monitoring system on cars.

After offering the K-Pressure™Optic system to the replacement market in past years, Pirelli is now able to offer the original equipment market the most advanced system for measuring tyre pressure and temperature. Cyber™ Tyre “Lean” not only satisfies the new regulatory requirements in force in Europe from 2012, it also offers a series of additional information in order to optimise tyre pressure under all load conditions, with additional benefits in terms of fuel consumption.

Consisting of a sensor slightly larger than a 2 Euro coin, mounted inside the tyre rim, it represents the first step towards a deep transformation of the tyre into an active system, capable of transmitting useful data and information to the vehicle, to offer new functions for driver safety.
