Sava Eskimo Ice
Confident handling and traction on all winter surfaces.
The studded Sava Eskimo Ice delivers superb braking and traction on ice and compacted snow.
Suitable for all axles
Designed for use on all axles of light commercial vehicles and vans. Eskimo Ice is a winter studdable tire for use in extreme winter driving conditions, eiter snow or ice.
Resistance to aquaplaning
A directional tread with deep grooves helps to quickly shed water and slush, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Dependable performance on snow
Drive with confidence on hard-packed snow. The tread features a high number of blades that bite into the surface. The winter rubber compound stays flexible at low temperatures, maintaining grip when you need it most.
Exceptional traction on ice
The eskimo ice handles slippery winter roads with ease. A new stud locking system keeps studs firmly in place for superb handling and braking on ice.
Get more mileage from your tyres. The tyre shape is optimised so that pressure is evenly distributed across the tyre. This ensures uniform wear and longer life.
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.
