The different geometry of the grooves of the tread allows equally well to cope with the diversion of water and snow mixture from the contact patch, and provide excellent adhesion to the snow and ice surface for greater efficiency during operation in winter.
The unique connecting elements of the tread blocks provide noise dissipation for the audio comfort and greater rigidity at maximum loads for safety and control accuracy. An innovative rubber compound containing diene rubber that provides particularly high abrasion resistance.
The design of the tread area around the spike increases the adsorption capacity of tires on an icy surface like a “sucker”, increasing the grip strength with an icy surface.
The optimum arrangement of 14 rows of spikes in the transverse direction provides outstanding braking and grip when accelerating on an icy surface.
