Tyre The new CityTech II and TransTech II treads combine perfectly the state-of-the-art technology with a good price-performance ratio. That’s what they’re like, our Vikings: always on the winning track!
New VAN tyre for vans and light trucks
Great road safety, even with heavy loads
Improved ride comfort due to low noise level
Viking delivers affordable quality and performance
Improved handling on dry roads
Fits perfectly for example to Renault Trafic, VW T5 and Mercedes Sprinter/Viano
Safety on dry roads Feature: Closed shoulders with compact double lugs and sturdy lug structure in the tread centre, coupled with longitudinal and lateral sipes Effect:Optimised tread pattern stiffness and increased stability in the circumferential lugs, plus ideally positioned gripping edges Benefit: Improved handling characteristics on dry roads and shorter braking distance
Safety on wet roads Feature:wide circumferential grooves in the tread centre and slightly curved lateral grooves in the shoulder Effect: Efficient water displacement in longitudinal and lateral direction Benefit. High level of safety and aquaplaning protection
Mileage performance Feature: Flat tyre contour and wear-optimised compound Effect: Evenly reduced wear thanks to a wider footprint Benefit: Highly economical, thanks to long service life
Noise and comfort Feature: Uniformly wide, offset shoulder grooves and closed 'noise breaker' shoulder Effect: Even reduction in noise level through elimination of frequency peaks Benefit: Enhanced driving comfort, thanks to low noise level.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
