These tyres have been developed with the use of aramid fibre. For the record, the same fibre is also used for making bulletproof vests, leading to better control and minimizing the chances of punctures.

The tyres comprise 'dual compound composition' which aids in limiting rolling resistance while improving stability and tyre life. The ‘Carcass Breaker’ structure of Extramaxx tyres maintain durability in a longer run.
