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.
