Nexen Tire America has announced the launch of two all-new tires under the Nexen Tire portfolio – N’Fera Sport R and Roadian HTX2 – at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. Each new offering embodies the company’s latest technological advances in tire development and manufacturing while representing the next generation of Nexen tires to come. Roadian HTX2 and N’Fera Sport R are designed to push the boundaries of performance and longevity by incorporating key elements derived from Nexen’s world-class tire-testing centers across the globe.
N’Fera Sport R – The Next Evolution in Extreme Performance
N’Fera Sport R is Nexen Tire’s all-new extreme ultra high-performance tire and replaces the legendary N’Fera SUR4G, the tire of choice by championship Formula DRIFT drivers. N’Fera Sport R boasts faster all-around performance and improved grip thanks to a larger contact area, resulting in an increase of 4% more ground contact area than the SUR4G. N’Fera Sport R also features a fine-grade, high-carbon black composition combined with a higher filler loading to achieve faster warm up times while on the track.
