Inherited the infinite passion of the renounced RE71, POTENZA RE71R is tuned for maximum handling on the track and engineered to deliver faster lap times. This street tyre is designed to fit performance cars which are popular among enthusiast drivers.

Potenza RE-71R tyre is developed from Bridgestone's proprietary tire development technology "ULMAT EYE" for measuring and visualizing tire contact surface behavior during actual riding conditions. Previously, tire development consisted of running simulations, building prototypes and using laboratory measurements as well as actual vehicle tests to verify performance. The "ULTIMAT EYE" reproduces highspeed riding conditions up to 400km/hr in the laboratory that are equivalent to those of an actual vehicle, enabling tire contact surface behavior to be visualized. With high precision analysis and performance verification, Bridgestone developed a new tread compound for RE-71R that increases contact with the road surface, giving car enthusiasts more grip when cornering and braking.

In addition, the tread pattern of the tyre is engineered with a wide centre rib that makes the Potenza RE-71R tyre highly responsive in extreme driving performance circumstances. The unique design maximumises the shoulder stiffness of RE-71R and provides constant rubber-to-road contact in sharp turns. Finally, the wide circumferential grooves and an angled-directional pattern provide effective drainage in wet conditions. Hence, Potenza RE-71R tyre can provide dependable everyday performance on the street.
Circuit Test Result

When comparing the race performance of RE-71R with the previous pattern RE-11A at Tsukuba Circuit, the fastest lap has advanced by 1.4%. The average lap time has also improved by 1.0%. The performance at the cornering is even more outstanding. Overall cornering speed of POTENZA RE-71R has improved by 3%.

To enjoy the agile steering response and confident cornering on the road, or even circuit, POTENZA RE-71R is the only choice.
