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
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 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.
