MP 46 Hectorra 2

      The MATADOR tyre sold under the marketing name   MP 46 HECTORRA 2 represents the second generation of summer high-speed asymmetric tread,   designed for passenger vehicles and for the most demanding tyre segment – ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE. The novel tyre will be introduced to the market   with the complete size range – in the summer season of  2008.

      Application of the UHP tyre MP 46 HECTORRA 2       The   MP 46 HECTORRA 2 Tyre tread is designed for higher and luxury class vehicles with ultra high performance for summer application. Its designation for operation on high performance automobiles at high speeds is based on its excellent braking properties and reliable maneuverability on wet as well as dry surfaces, as well as its high resistance to aquaplaning. Operational   safety of these high-performance cars is one of the most important criteria for designing   this segment of tyres.       MATADOR will introduce the MP46 to the UHP market segment in the following sizes 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20”, in the highest performance categories:       V   up to  240 km/h, W up to 270 km/h and Y up to 300 km/h.       Features of the MP 46 HECTORRA 2 tyre tread       Compared to its predecessor – MP45, the asymmetrical tyre tread pattern based on modern design offers better maneuverability and safety for high performance and sports drivers on dry and wet road surfaces.       The tread design is   crafted in an innovative way – in an effort to minimize the so-called whistling effect. An asymmetrical tread pattern splits the tyre to inner and outer zones, whereas each zone has its specific function at high speeds and when driving on wet surfaces. When mounting the tyres, attention must be paid to correct orientation of the tyre – assisted by the “outer” sign on the tyre wall – indicating the outer zone of each tyre.       HECTORRA 2 follows the latest trends in tyre design and   consistent with all new products of MATADOR it is equipped by innovative information elements on the tyre wall indicating the residual life of the tyre and position of the tyre on the automobile.

Tread pattern

Asymmetrical pattern of the tread blocks

1.Outer zone
= wider tread blocks and narrow cross grooves ensuring increased stability of the vehicle in turns, especially during a sports drive. 
2.Inner zone
= narrower tread blocks and wider cross grooves with a positive effect on performance and safety on wet surfaces 
3.Circumferential grooves
- wide straight circumferential grooves enabling rapid removal of water from the tread = maximum protection against aquaplaning, excellent directional control and straight line stability.
- uneven inclination of the side walls of the circumferential grooves increases the tread stiffness thus increasing the stability in any driving situation 
4.Tread lamella cuts
- provide additional division of tread blocks enabling silent and comfortable rolling.
5.Full circumferential tread band
- significantly improves directional stability and its position in the outer zone of the tread increases safety during a sports drive.
6.Enclosed shoulder blocks
- enclosed robust shoulder tread blocks reinforce the shoulder segments with positive impact on maneuverability = excellent stability in curves, dynamic drive properties, excellent handling
- prevent turbulent movement of water in circumferential grooves
