Setting the new standard for studless winter van tyres
The directional symmetric pattern of the crossed sipes offer both improved mileage and a more stable grip on snow, ice & wet roads. The wide lateral grooves and shoulder edge enhance traction on winter roads and bite into the snow and ice. The wide tread is optimised to block irregular wear and ensure impressive handling performance.
Opposite Angled Sipes
Different types of sipes improve snow traction
Wide Lateral Grooves
Wide lateral grooves enhance the bite of the snow and ice traction
Shoulder biting edge enhances snow traction
The contact area is widened instantaneously when braking by the groove chamfer → Improved handling performance
Improves braking performance and better grip in the snow
Jointless full cover reinforced belt
Ideal tread strength
Wide steel belt layer
Ensures optimal tread stiffness and improves handling performance.
Equilibrium polyester carcass line
Enhanced sidewall stiffness and durability
Adoption of high-hardness bead filler
Enhancing the durability of the bead part.
High strength bead wire
Improves uniformity and durability of the bead position.
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.
