to Shu Ishibashi, president of Bridgestone/Firestone North American
Consumer Tire Sales Group, "Our new Bridgestone Dueler
A/T Revo offers pickup truck and SUV owners the best of both worlds.
It has a powerful grip to take on the most rugged routes, even
in snow, while still providing a smooth, civilized ride on the
highway." Ishibashi added, "With our exclusive
UNI-T AQII technology, we're able to produce tires that keep performance
up, even as the tread wears down.”
using the company’s exclusive UNI-T AQII technology, the
new Dueler A/T Revo is built with a dual-layer tread compound*
for improved grip, wet and dry traction, cut resistance and braking,
even when worn. The dual-layer tread compound is an inner tread
layer that is exposed as the tread wears, enabling the tire to
better grip the road. For enhanced off-road durability, the tire
incorporates a two polyester body ply design.
aggressive tread pattern and sidewall design with raised white
outline lettering gives the Dueler A/T Revo a stylish edge over
competing tires. The tire reverses to blackwall, for sleek, streamlined
good looks for those desiring a more refined image. The Dueler
A/T Revo comes in 27 popular 15-, 16- and 17-inch P-metric and
light truck sizes to fit a wide variety of domestic and imported
pickups, SUVs and light truck applications. It is available in
load ranges C, D and E in the light truck sizes, carries a UTQG
rating of 500 A (traction) and B (temperature) on the P-metric
sizes, and comes with a 50,000 mile warranty.
is an acronym for Ultimate Network of
Intelligent Tire Technology. It features three core elements:
CO•CS®, a Computer Optimized Component System which
allows design and manufacturing processes to work more cooperatively,
leading to a more efficient tire that doesn't sacrifice one area
of performance for improvements in another; O-Bead®, a more
round structure that minimizes overlapped joints in the bead area
for improved ride; and L.L. Carbon® (Long Link Carbon) which
helps the rubber compound resist microscopic tread tearing related
AQ™ is the second generation of the technology, with AQ
being an acronym for "Advanced Quality." Tires with
UNI-T AQ feature a dual-layer tread and extended performance compound,
providing drivers with more consistent wet performance as the
tires age and wear.
, the newest development, incorporates a variety of improvements
to the earlier UNI-T and UNI-T AQ technologies to give drivers
even stronger wet and dry performance, both when the tire is new
and when it is worn. Tires with UNI-T AQII feature Super Extended
Performance Optimization, which involves a Super Extended Performance
Compound (EPC), and an enhanced version of the dual-layer tread.
The Super EPC contains an anti-hardening resin and a link stabilizing
agent that helps reduce the normal hardening process that occurs
as a tire ages.
