Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE004 is a UHP summer tire with great sporty capabilities, designed to be installed on a wide range of vehicles.
The Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE004 model was introduced in the beginning of 2020 as a replacement for Potenza Adrenalin RE003. In comparison to its predecessor, it is characterized by a more stable handling response and enhanced traction on dry pavement combined with lower rolling resistance.
In addition, the Japanese tire maker claims that the Potenza RE004 Adrenalin model, just like all of the tires of the Potenza line, for that matter, is characterized by high hydroplaning resistance, which is achieved thanks to quick and efficient evacuation from the contact patch on wet pavement.
Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE004 got an asymmetric tread design, which enhances the tire’s performance in any weather conditions in the summertime. For example, the wider inner shoulder area increases the tire’s stability and the vehicle’s maneuverability on dry pavement. The wide circumferential grooves serve to quickly evacuate the water from the contact area, thus improving the traction while driving in the rain.
The increased width of the central section is meant to ensure the tire’s responsiveness to the driver’s actions, whilst the rigid tread blocks with diagonal sipes of Bridgestone Potenza RE004 Adrenalin are focused on increasing the vehicle’s road holding ability.
The tread compound, developed specially for this high-performance model, ensures extra grip on wet pavement, at the same time serving to reduce the rolling resistance, which optimizes the fuel consumption.
Parallel to the launch of the RE004, the brand range was augmented with the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS model, positioned as the fastest tire in history, also fit for legal use on public highways.
