W Winter: products designed for use over long and medium distances under critical weather conditions (below 4°C) And on snow covered surfaces

Low rolling resistance and reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emission.

Reusable tyres, thanks to high retreadability and its recyclable highly aromatic oil free (HAOF) materials.

Lower noise emission and high acoustic comfort. Fulfils future (2012) EC Directive.

Safety and mileage in demanding winter conditions.

Thanks to this new concept of ‘winter’ tyre design, with dense and thin siping, these new lines FW:01 and TW:01 are ideal for equipment on coaches, performing excellent acoustic comfort and high mileage. This advantage is enhanced by using the combination of FW:01 on steer axle and TW:01 on drive axle. 

Innovative design and pitch sequence ensure safe handling and acoustic comfort.
