ologic technology capitalizes on the synergies of a large diameter coupled with a narrow tread design. While the tread on smaller diameter tires is typically inclined to excessive movement or “deformation” during driving, the larger diameter and higher belt tension significantly reduce tire deformation and therefore conserve energy that is otherwise lost through internal friction which helps to reduce rolling resistance. By the same token, the narrow tread concept improves aerodynamics. The most spectacular achievement is that these improvements do not involve a trade-off in terms of safety.
