Newest winter compound - multicell/foamy compound (also called 'nordic') rich with high distribution silica to maintain elasticity and frictive qualities of tyre tread in extremely low ambient temperatures and guarantee consistent performance. Enhanced ice surface performance - multicell compound and micro-pumps on tread blocks have function of absorbing water film from ice surface, eliminating slippery factor and improving grip.
Micro-pumps and foamy compound also improve wet asphalt traction of the tyre. New innovative design of tread sipes - fully 3D zig-zag shaped sipes enhance rigidity of tread blocks and thus help to maintain maximum contact patch and to minimize shape twist of grooves for better water/slush evacuation. Outer side of grooves walls has more slope angle to improve cornering traction and stability, also featuring bumps on groove walls to disrupt air flow and reduce noise generation
Center rib design features empty pitches, with long and narrow following wide and short - improving accelerating traction and reducing noise, and S-shaped sipe to enhance accelerating traction. Wide circumferential and lateral grooves designed to evacuate water and slush efficiently. Shoulder blocks feature W-shaped micro-grooves which increase responsiveness of tyre while cornering, also being an addition to decorative pattern of shoulder outer wall. 9 different tread block shapes are used to decrease noise
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.
