The winter breaker.
Made from eco-compatible materials that minimise environmental impact, both at the production stage and throughout the life of the tyre.
Already complies with the 2012 EU Directive on the reduction of noise, resulting in improved driving comfort.
Enhanced performance on wet surfaces
The I.B.S. (Interactive Brickwork Siping) technology used for the sipe pattern improves performance on wet and dry surfaces. It gives a feeling of safety in extreme conditions and reduces braking distance.
Thanks to its optimized tread pattern design and rounder profile, WINTER SNOWCONTROL™ SERIE 3 ensures higher traction capability on snowy surfaces.
Whereas, with this generation of winter compounds used, it achieves excellent wet and snow performance.
Moreover the innovative base compound and bead geometry improve handling and stability of the vehicle also in dry road conditions.
|1 - Optimized Tread Pattern Design|| |
Increase the traction
|2 - Improved Tread Pattern Compound||Improves the balance between wet and snow behavior achieved through High Vinyl Poly Butadiene|| |
|3 - Interactive Brickwork siping (I.B.S.)||Specific sipe geometry allows “vertical” and independent movements of tread "bricks"||Increased contact area to enhanced braking also on irregular surfaces. |
Stability in lateral / longitudinal directions to improve handling
|Innovative Base Compound and Bead Geometry||Excellent Dry Stability and Handling||Outstanding safe driving in dry road conditions|
