The Nexen N'Fera RU1 will be original equipment on the 2017 Porsche Cayenne. Travis Kang, CEO of Nexen Tire Co., says it is the company's first Porsche fitment.
"As Porsche is a representative luxury carmaker with prestigious design and performance, this approval for the Porsche Cayenne proves the superior quality and advanced technology of our products."
The N'Fera RU1 was designed with cornering ability and high-speed handling in mind. It received a European Union Labeling grade of A for its excellent wet grip, and a grade of Noise Level 1 -- the lowest noise level.
The tire features two technologies:
1. 3D-Nano Grip Technology, which maximizes the braking capability of a sports vehicle at high speed;
2. Fast Reversible Technology, which optimizes the steering response and durability.
The tire was built using aramid hybrid cap-ply cord and special bead filler compound that enhance handling stability.
"Nexen Tire plans to take this momentum as a great opportunity to boost the bran value by supplying original equipment tires to the premium car manufacturer," says Nexen. "The company will also promote corporate identity and implement premium marketing activities, as well as endeavor to expand supplies of original equipment tires to other Porsche car models."
