The new SnoVanis 2 knows no compromise when it comes to safety and will keep you motoring throughout the winter! Its innovative tread safely keeps vans on the right track on slippery surfaces. The optimised winter compound shortens stopping distances, extends mileage and reduces rolling resistance, which means that both vehicle handling and costs remain under control at all times.
Greater safety with reduced costs
Optimised braking performance, resulting in shorter braking distances on snow
Excellent traction on snow
Greater safety in curves, also on wet roads
Potential fuel savings as a result of improved rolling resistance
Braking on snow Feature: Compact block tread on shoulders and high sipe density Effect: Improved force transmission and increased number of gripping edges Benefit: Optimised braking performance, resulting in shorter braking distances on snow
Traction on snow Feature: High groove volume and snow pockets in the outer grooves Effect: Improved snow-to-snow interlock due to increased snow pick-up Benefit: Excellent traction on snow
Short braking distances and optimum traction on snow. With the newly developed winter compound, a combination of tread pattern blocks and lateral sipes ensure optimum traction and short braking distances on snow-covered roads.
Very efficient thanks to less fuel consumption. The abrasion of the SnoVanis 2 is low, which leads to high performance and a long service life. Thanks to the reduced rolling resistance, fuel consumption decreased.
Holds the line when cornering, even on wet surfaces. Numerous gripping edges, the high volume of grooves and snow pockets in the outer grooves mean the tyre achieves excellent snow-to-snow adhesion. As a result, the SnoVanis 2 maintains full directional stability even when cornering on wet roads.
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.
