Special silica compound for excellent driving performance on icy and snowy surfaces. Asymmetric pattern and wide tread deliver outstanding safety.
Snow & Handling
Deep and densely distributed grooves and steel sheet help to soften the tread which enhances braking power on ice covered surfaces.
Asymmetric pattern features and three main grooves prove great maneuverability.
Safety & Braking
Upgraded silica compound makes sure the tread keeping soft even in low temperature and provides first-class safety. Lateral serrated strip design on tread improves skid resistance.
Serrated design in the outside main groove assures strong grip and braking force on ice & snow covered surfaces.
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.
