Barum tyres were founded in 1924 as a manufacturing factory for wellington boots. The company would work under Bata in Czechoslovakia. Later in 1934, it started to produce various types of tyres for the company’s vehicles as it would cost really high to import tyres for their vehicles. Next, in 1945, three different companies – Bata, Mitas and Rubena signed an agreement and launched its joint tyre manufacturing company, Barum Tyres and produced its first radial tyres in 1967. The company the built a new plant to import products from Otrokovice to different places. In 1992, the plant in Otrokovice and Continental AG joined hands in agreement to establish Barum Continental, another branch of tyre manufacturing.
By the end of 2010, the company has been known as one of the leading tyre manufacturing factories in the world, exporting their products to over 40 countries in Asia, Europe, North and South America. The company produces weather based tyres such as all- season tyres, winter tyres and summer tyres for different types of vehicles which include lightweight trucks, vans, passenger cars, industrial related vehicles and SUV/4x4. Barum Snovanis is an ultra- performance tyres that are specifically designed for vans and belong to the category of winter tyres. Built with modern, innovative technology, the tyre performs well on snowy roads and can withstand extreme wintery temperatures.
Barum Snovanis consists of unique rubber compound made of silica that provides excellent traction between the surface of the road and the tyre. It consists of wide longitudinal grooves that enable the water to disperse easily and quickly, while driving through wet road conditions, thwarting the risk of aquaplaning. The tyre provides low rolling resistance resulting in low fuel consumption and hence this decreases the emission of carbon in the atmosphere. The reinforced blocks on the shoulder of the tyre provide high stiffness and the compact shoulder blocks offer better cornering stability along with excellent short braking distance. It has an outstanding wear resistance along with high stability and durability. It performs very well in snowy or icy road conditions and can drive up to four to five inches in snow.
