An all-round winter player, not only excellent control in the snow but also advanced wet and dry performance in cold weather.
Snow pick traction groove Unidirectional tread design in a gull wing shape improves the traction and braking performance on snow.
3D winter sipe Serrated winter sipe improves braking performance in winter driving. This special sipe enhances driving stability by minimising block movement.
Water pipe kerf The water pipe kerf placed inside the shoulder block improves performance on wet surfaces by efficiently transporting water out of the main groove.
Aqua pine compound Maximising wet and snow grip by adopting highly refined resin.
Advanced silica compound for wet performance The high loading silica compound provides an increased wet performance. Natural ingredients ensure the rubber’s flexibility in a wide temperature range.
Application of high strength steel belt wire A full cover steel layer increases the tread stiffness and keeps straight stability even throughout powerful acceleration. The application of special edge covers improve steering response.
Dual layer fibre stiffener The dual structure of the carcass fibre stiffener provides tyre durability and stress resistance.
High strength bead wire The extra high tensile bead wire provides driving stability even throughout powerful acceleration.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.
