Federal Formoza Gio
Federal - High-quality tyres from Taiwan.
Federal Formoza GIO
Federal Tyres’ new PCR tyre, adopts multiple pitches, enclosed grooves on tyre shoulder and evenly cut sipes for lowering noises, special compound for enhancing traction and a brand new profile for avoiding uneven wear. It is a tyre features outstanding handling, low noise levels and fuel economy.
Honeycomb design on sidewall
With more space for heat dissipation, both the heat tyre creates and rolling resistance coefficient are reduced.
Heat-lowering material added to special compound
Silica included to cool the heat tyre generates while travelling as well as Rolling Resistance Coefficient.
Blade-shaped design enhance water dispersion and efficiency of braking in the wet.
Interrupting the sound frequency created when driving and lowering noise levels, increasing tranquility.
Closed-groove design on shoulder avoids noises and gives better tranquility when travelling.
Even grooves cut on block
Grooves cut evenly on block to balance tyre rigidity and lower noise levels.
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
