Master-Grip 2 - The snow professional in its element
The Semperit quality 'alpine-proven', provides maximum safety, even under tough alpine conditions. For compact and medium range cars. Exceptionally good on snow. The Semperit quality, provides maximum safety, even under tough conditions. Very good snow traction. Fits perfectly for example to Toyota Yaris, Nissan Micra and Skoda Fabia, Smart, Renault Twingo, Seat Mii.
Very good snow traction
Excellent snow handling
Safe ice braking
Very good snow traction. The high density of sipes provides a large number of gripping edges and extra-wide grooves in the shoulder block offers better snow expulsion. Your advantage: Very good traction and grip during accelerating and braking.
Excellent snow handling. Compact structure in the shoulder blocks provide good lateral support on snow and the centre rib with many gripping edges ensures that the traction and braking forces are transfered to the road. Your advantage: Excellent performance on snow.
Safe ice braking. The increased tread stiffness in the longitudinal direction increases the contact area between the rubber and the ice, which is simultaneously well drained by numerous wiping edges. Your advantage: Safe braking on ice.
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.
