Scorpion™ Winter offers the SUV and crossover improved safety when braking and cornering on all the most treacherous surfaces that autumn and winter can provide. Pirelli’s new winter tyre ensures that the owners of heavier, more powerful vehicles enjoy full control under all conditions of use.
Scorpion™ Winter is part of the Pirelli premium range and complements the most recent traction control and ABS systems typically found on the latest-generation SUVs and crossovers. Also available in a run flat version, its characteristic reliability and safety are certified by TÜV SÜD.
In comparative testing against 4 rivals, the independent international certification body put the Scorpion™ to the test and awarded it “best in class” for its braking, grip and driving performance on the snow.
The new Pirelli winter tyre was awarded top marks in these tests: indeed, it excelled in handling and braking tests on the snow, slowing from 50 to 10 km/h in 25.5 metres. Meanwhile, in the traction test on compact snowy surfaces it accelerated from 10 to 40 km/h in 2.32 seconds.
Developed by Pirelli to maximise grip on the snow, optimise steering precision and guarantee safety when cornering and in the straight during the cold season, Scorpion™ Winter complies fully with Pirelli’s high safety, comfort, reliability and handling standards, even in winter.
