Deestone Expedite RA801E Tyre for Sport Cars Owners
The Deestone Expedite RA801E ultra high performance tyre is aimed at owners of sports cars and medium to large sporty sedans as well as demanding driving enthusiasts who place great importance on handling performance. It comes in 31 sizes for 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20-inch wheels, and is rated for speeds of 270km/h and 300km/h.
Responding to the passion of track and race drivers, the Expedite RA801E was developed under key parameters such as high-speed control and stability, confidence inspiring, good grip on wet and dry surfaces, and being motor sports driven.
In the final stages of development, Deestone engineers tested 575 tyres over 7,457km during a four-month period. In benchmark tests, the Expedite RA801E outperformed the Deestone Carreras R702 street sport tyre in driving comfort, dry and wet handling, steering response, high speed stability and noise control.
The Expedite RA801E tyre was developed under Deestone's UTT (ultimate tyre technology) philosophy that applies new concepts, material technology and product engineering to a new generation of tyres for improved quality and performance. It combines an innovative bead reinforcement system for better handling and sharper steering response as well as the DSS (Deestone Super Compound) technology that uses a specially formulated silica compound for reduced rolling resistance and longer tyre life.
It was also developed under a vibration reduction concept for ultra high performance tyres and an asymmetric tread pattern for superior control on wet and dry roads. A semi-connecting block design helps to ensure rigidity and thus improve performance during sharp cornering as well as on wet road conditions. The tyre's multi sipe shoulder is designed to reduce noise and irregular tyre wear, while the reinforced centre rib provides confident high-speed stability. A design featuring four straight grooves also ensures better performance on wet roads.
Deestone is the oldest tyre brand in the Asean region and a leading producer of off-road and passenger car tyres as well as tyres for commercial trucks and buses. Set up in Thailand in 1977, Deestone Ltd manufactures high quality automotive and specialty tyres that are priced more reasonably than the competition. Deestone tyres are known for meeting international quality standards.
In the 1980s, Deestone grew at a rapid pace after expanding its product range to cater to the motorcycle and small industrial tyre segment. In the 1990s, the company enjoyed more success by producing bias tyres, bicycle inner tubes and other industrial tyres. In 1995, Deestone received certification from the United States Department of Transportation and this gave the company international recognition and prestige.
Further expansion came in the last decade, with Deestone’s significant penetration into Europe and major Asian markets. Deestone also does its part to reduce its impact on the environment by re-using scrap materials sourced from the tyre production process.
In Malaysia, Deestone is represented by Cooperteams Distribution Sdn Bhd as its distributor.
