The perfect all-round winter tyre. Excellent control in the snow, impressive performance in wet and dry conditions, outstanding advanced ice grip and traction even in extremely low temperatures. A reliable and durable tyre, designed with advanced technology to adapt to all winter road conditions.
Snow Pick Traction Grooves The gull-wing shaped lateral grooves on the tyre kick out and expel the snow, ensuring impressive handling on snowy roads.
3D Winter Sipes The serrated winter sipes at the end of the tread improve braking performance on winter roads. This unique sipe provides enhanced driving stability and handling by minimising block movement.
Snow Pick Traction Grooves The water pipe kerf found on the inner side of the shoulder blocks improve ice and wet grip performance, by efficiently expelling the precipitation from the winter roads.
Aqua Pine Compound Maximising wet, ice and snow grip by using highly refined resin.
Advanced Silica Compound for Wet Performance The high loading silica compound increases the wet and dry performance of the tyre. The natural ingredients ensure flexibility throughout a wide range of temperatures.
Application of High Strength Steel Belt Wire The full cover of the high strength steel belt wire increases tread stiffness and tyre edge cover, to improve steering performance and ensure the tyre has full control of the winter roads.
Increase of Steel Belt Cords Additional steel belt cords improve the handling performance of the tyre, producing a firm grip on the winter roads.
Dual Layer Fibre Stiffener The dual structure of the carcass fibre stiffener increases the tyre's strength, resistance and reliability on the winter roads.
High Strength Bead Wire By increasing the binding force between the wheel and joint, the tyre is securely attached to the wheel, even throughout harsh winter road conditions, producing strong grip and traction on the road at all times.
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.
