Many sipes packed into the tread lugs of this tire allow the tire to bite into the ice and snow to deliver exceptional grip and traction.
The special formulated soft tread compound allows the tread blocks to remain flexible at cold temperatures to improve ride comfort and performance meanwhile increasing snow and ice surface traction and grip.
An innovative elongated triangular buttress on the side of the outer circumferential grooves provides lateral support for handling purposes as the compound is extremely soft.
The large surface area provides more rubber to come in contact with the road for a stable footprint and great handling.
A new sidewall buttress was designed, carrying over the textured design to aid cornering and traction in deep snow plus a pleasing aesthetic finish to the tire.
A patented textured tread surface with fine raised lines provides extra traction and grip on ice.
Enhances tread block stiffness for better response and control providing excellent braking and acceleration.
Square shoulders provide flat, even pressure across the footprint and support while cornering.
