Nexen N Fera RU1 - Fantastic Driving
With a fantastic ride and superb steering, your driving experience will be raised to the next level.
Superb driving experience
As a premium tire fitted out with new technologies for the best SUV driving experience, NFera RU1 provides superb handling and grip.
4G optimized compound technology delivers an optimized tread grip on both wet and dry surfaces.
Improved block stiffness and balanced constuction provides excellent handling and steering stability.
Ride Comfort & Long mileage
Special tread compound, flexible sidewall and optimized asymmetric pattern design delivers a refreshing ride comfort and long mileage.
Three Wide Grooves
Three wide grooves on the in-side part that wields great influence upon the driving performance in the rain are applied to improve hydro/wet performance.
One Narrow Groove
One narrow groove on out-side is applied to increase the block stiffness and thereby improve handling and steering stability during cornering.
Optimized Out/In Rib Balance
Optimized out/in rib balance delivers the best stability during high-speed driving.
Silent sipes disperse noise from high stiffness block and consequently, have a very low noise output.
Wet Grip and Dry Handling with Perfect Balance and Stability
N'Fera RU1's excellent wet braking performance is achieved with POS & HES technology. Optimal contact patch on road surface is realized by POS & FOS technology delivering best-in-class dry handling performance.
POS: Tire Profile Optimization System.
HES: Hydro Evacuation Simulation.
FOS: Footprint Optimum-shape Simulation.
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.
