- High cornering stability and traction, best dry and snow handling performance
- Enhanced steering response, optimised snow traction and best braking performance on all surfaces
- Outstanding snow traction and snow handling performance
- Optimised traction and braking performance on slippery surface
High cornering stability and traction, best dry and snow handling performance. On the non-studdable version of the Snow Grabber, large twin-blocks and numerous block edges ensure good cornering stability and excellent traction. This optimises handling in both dry conditions and on snow.
Enhanced steering response, optimised snow traction and best braking performance on all surfaces. Lots of single block elements, combined with a high proportion of positive tread and three highly-textured rows of blocks around the circumference of the tyre, improve the steering response, optimise traction on snow and ensure optimum braking performance on all roads.
Outstanding snow traction and snow handling performance. Snow pockets improve traction and handling on snow.
Optimised traction and braking performance on slippery surface. The high density of sipes of different types optimises traction and braking performance on smooth roads.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
