With ologic technology, tyre width is minimized to lower aerodynamic resistance and the diameter is increased to reduce rolling resistance.Ologic improves fuel efficiency of cars, which in turn lessens CO2 emissions, contributing to sustainable mobility.
At the same time, Bridgestone's technological competence has also led to the evolution of materials, tyre structures, and tread patterns to boost braking performance for improved safety.
The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is a biannual international solar car competition, crossing 3,000 km across the Australian continent. Bridgestone has been a proud title sponsor since 2013, and also provides ecological and safe technologies to the teams, supporting the challenges of the young engineers and their technological innovations.

Tyres with Run Flat Technology allow vehicles to continue driving safely after a puncture — even if air pressure is lost — as the reinforced sidewall construction supports the vehicle’s weight for a certain distance. Bridgestone’s DriveGuard tyres can be fitted on any type of wheel, bringing the security and control of Run Flat Technology to almost all passenger cars equipped with TPMS.
With a unique structure of spokes extending along the inner sides of the tyres, Bridgestone’s Air Free Concept Technology means tyres do not need to be inflated to support the vehicle’s weight. Recyclable resin and rubber are used, ensuring efficient use of resources. As the need for daily maintenance is eliminated, Bridgestone aims to apply this technology to various forms of personal mobility, including bicycles.
