PIRELLI ANGEL SCOOTER

02.11.2016

Pirelli is pleased to present the new 2017 Scooter Range which from January, will introduce two new products onto the market, ANGEL™ SCOOTER and DIABLO ROSSO™ SCOOTER. These will be available with a complete range of sizes, and will progressively replace and expand the current DIABLO™ SCOOTER model during the course of next year.

ANGEL™ SCOOTER and DIABLO ROSSO™ SCOOTER represent the direct movement of two historic Pirelli tyre families into the world of scooters. ANGEL™ and DIABLO™ families, from which they maintain the typical characteristics and distinctive traits, for users with varying needs and on different types of scooters. 

ANGEL™ SCOOTER has a strong family feeling with the ANGEL™ range, Pirelli's sport touring line, as can also be seen by the tread pattern which follows the multiple award-winning and highly popular ANGEL GT™. This tyre is the guardian angel of urban mobility because it provides excellent riding comfort, handling and performance on wet roads, ideal characteristics for daily use in the urban jungle.

ANGEL™ SCOOTER is dedicated to scooter riders who use them all year round in an urban setting, but also with a passenger. This means that these riders need long life, comfort, safety under braking and easy, predictable performance in any conditions, even on wet surfaces.

 

Benefits and technical characteristics of each tyre

 

The main benefits and technical characteristics of ANGEL™ SCOOTER are:

 

  • Excellent comfort: thanks to the combined action of the rigid structure and the innovative tread pattern, this tyre can take on any road surface. With ANGELSCOOTER, any scooter user will be able to enjoy a smoother, safer and more comfortable ride. In fact, the revolutionary shock absorption holes arranged along the tread contribute to increasing the flexibility of the tyre under the tread, not only allowing the vibrations and bumps in the road to be absorbed, but also increasing the tyre surface in contact with the asphalt during braking.
  • Top-level performance on wet surfaces: the new compound with a high percentage of silica content, combined with a new vulcanisation process, provides consistent and long-lasting performance in any weather conditions for the entire lifespan of the tyre. This means that the rider will be able to feel safe even on wet road surfaces.
  • Unprecedented urban handling: The new multi radius profile changes tyre performance at different lean angles, making the ride more agile when it comes to direction changes and going round corners, to then progressively become balanced and stable when leaning. For the rider, this translates into greater confidence when making turns, stability in all conditions and predictable scooter performance in difficult situations.

 

The new tyres in the Pirelli scooter range will make their public début at the 74th Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA), scheduled to be held from 08 to 13 November 2016, where visitors will be able to see and inspect the tyres.. The new products will be the attractions of a corner (Pavilion 10, stand C61), created in collaboration with the Pirelli Foundation, which traces the Pirelli heritage in the scooter world through historic images and film footage with particular focus on the economic boom in Italy.
