Bridgestone has launched its first ever all-season tyre for the light truck segment, the DURAVIS All Season.

Available from August, Bridgestone said the tyre had been designed with both small and large fleets in mind, enabling them to keep going in adverse weather conditions thanks to its high volume slots in its shoulder for improved water evacuation.

It also offers optimised pressure distribution, which the company said will improve its snow and wear performance.

Bridgestone said the rise of ecommerce and last mile delivery, coupled with the pressures of the EU’s fuel economy regulations, meant that the DURAVIS All Season would help fleets reduce their total ownership costs.

Emilio Tiberio, Bridgestone EMIA chief technical officer, said: “Today, more and more fleets are choosing all-season tyres because of the convenience they provide.

“The DURAVIS All Season, our first-ever all-season tyre for light trucks, helps to provide the business efficiency fleets are seeking.”

Several additional sizes will be made available from September.
