The new Ventus S1 evo K107 was designed and built for improved durability and to minimize distortion at high speeds and high temperatures
The Ventus S1 evo’s profile and structure ensure optimal ground contact pressure for responsive performance at high speeds
Optimized ground contact means better handling and performance in both wet and dry road conditions while the tread pattern and footprint minimize hydroplaning, reduce noise and enhance stability
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.

19.11.2015 from Chris Morris Surprisingly good tyre for the price. Doesn't really get great reviews in some tyre tests which is strange. Great dry grip,giving the Ceed a much needed improvement with it's turn-in. Not bad wet grip although standing water can cause them a few problems. They are rated an 'f' for fuel economy if memory serves but average m.p.g has only dropped by 2/3 compared to a 'c' rated tyre previously ran. Worth the drop for far superior grip. Wearing extremely well,especially resistant to under steer which knocks the outside edge off the nearside tyre. Not used them in the winter weather(I fit winter tyres)but I would guess they won't be the best judging by the tread patten alone.
04.01.2014 from Mark Cheaper than discontinued Michelin PE2 but very similar performance. Better steering feel than Pirelli P Zero Nero. Much better value than Michelin PS3.
03.02.2013 from Sally Great Tyre, performance for a reasonable cost
11.05.2012 from Hollis The performance and grip is better than expected especially in wet conditions, where the tyre was not highly rated.
