Castrol Trizone Technology
Motorcycle engineModern 4 stroke motorcycle engines are invariably air cooled and typically operate at high speeds and generate a lot of heat which leads to wear and tear of the engine. Motorcycle engines produce a lot of power for their weight: a truck engine produces peak power at about two and a half thousand RPM and a car engine at around six thousand RPM. Modern four-stroke motorcycle engines can rev up to 15 thousand RPM or more.
The ideal motorcycle lubricant has to be designed very carefully to operate at optimum levels in three critical parts – From the engine zone, need to combat the huge pressures of heat, compression and combustion deposits. From the clutch zone, the need for the optimum balance between slip and grip. And from the gearbox zone, the need to reduce wear and noise. To get the best performance from a motorcycle it is essential for these three critical zones to perform in a synchronized manner.
Castrol Trizone TechnologyCastrol Trizone technology™ represents the 21st century approach to 4T motorcycle oils. Castrol 4T oils developed with Trizone technology™ offers the protection needed to get the most out of your motorcycle.
Castrol Trizone Technology provides the ultimate combined protection to the three critical parts of the engine – the engine, the clutch and gear. Castrol Trizone Technology has been developed by drawing on Castrol’s unique heritage, its vast experience in countries around the globe and its experience gained from working with several winning racing teams across the years.
Castrol has always been at the cutting edge of lubricants technology for automobiles with world class products like Activ and Power1 for motorcycles and has now raised the bar on motorcycle lubricants technology by introducing Castrol Trizone Technology across it’s range of 4 stroke motorcycle oils. It harnesses Castrol’s cutting edge know how in motorcycle engine oil technology, honed at the leading edge of speed and endurance.
Why one oil?The circulating oil comes under huge thermal stress as it transfers heat away from low mass components under high power conditions. High piston speeds and power output generate very high temperatures - with few places for that heat to go. The oil plays a crucial cooling role – which demands oils with exceptional high thermal stability. But there are many other challenges that a lubricant must face:
- Poor quality oil can vaporise leading to a rapid rise in oil consumption - and a fall in protection.
- Compact multicylinder multivalve engines use complex oil circuitry with narrow oilways - the oil needs to be fluid enough to keep flowing under all conditions
- Deposits can build up on the pistons and rings - the oil needs to keep these clean. All the while, the oil is carrying combustion by products and wear metals into the sump and filter
