The hard-working tyre that keeps your van moving all winter long
The Cargo UltraGrip 2 is a van tyre that performs all winter long, even with heavy loads.
- Outstanding traction on winter roads
- Quiet, comfortable ride
- Reduced risk of aquaplaning
- High load-carrying capability
Outstanding traction on winter roads. Enjoy confident grip with a tread that features extra biting edges for ice and snow. The winter rubber compound stays flexible in cold weather, enhancing braking ability.
Quiet, comfortable ride. With the Cargo UltraGrip 2’s noise-reducing tread pattern, journeys are quieter and more comfortable.
Reduced risk of aquaplaning. Directional tread grooves quickly shed water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning on rain-soaked or thawing roads.
High load-carrying capability. The Cargo UltraGrip 2 has an all-steel carcass based on UniSteel technology, which increases its load-carrying capacity.
- Bladed rib/block design
- Off-set shoulder blocks
- Wide circumferential grooves
- 35 metres of radial blades
- 30 metres of longitudinal blades
- All-round Winter traction
- Off-road and snow performance
- Aquaplaning resistance
- Snow and ice grip, wet grip
- Handling on snow/ice/wet roads
The Cargo UltraGrip has an all-steel carcass based on Unitsteel technology that helps to increase high-load carrying capability. The maximum blade density greatly improves winter performance. The tyre is also studdable, in order to cope with the most extreme kind of winter conditions. The Cargo UltraGrip 2 has an optimised rubber compound for outstanding traction and braking behaviour even on wet and icy roads. The special design enables neutral road behaviour with high loads. The snowflake marked Cargo UltraGrip 2 fulfils the requirements for driving in severe snow conditions in accordance with ETRTO test procedures.
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.
