Falken Eurowinter HS01 are medium-class winter tyres which perfectly combine good grip and an attractive price. With the use of completely innovative technologies, the model can properly handle even the most extreme winter conditions. The directional tread pattern means problem-free driving on snow, ice or during rain. The combination of grooves with different shapes with a system of sipes (small notches at the whole tread surface) facilitates starting, cornering and also reduces braking distance.
When designing the tyre, the greatest focus was put on ensuring maximum grip in the most challenging road conditions. Good tyres should give you the chance to avoid a bump or another unpleasant event. Compared to previous Eurowinter tyres, this model offers better steering on snowy and wet roads (by 5%) and improved aquaplaning resistance (10%). The high level of safety is only one of many advantages brought by Falken Eurowinter HS01. Apart from that, the tyre ensures a comfortable drive and is 15% more resistant to irregular wear than the previous models (an even distribution of pressure so also the force is exerted on the surface, as well as an improved compound).
Information on the manufacturer: Falken is a Japanese tyre brand owned by Sumitomo. It started in 1983, and two years later was introduced on the American market. Originally, Falken tyres were intended for sporty cars. Currently, they are available almost all over the world and are not only intended for the fastest cars but also for many other vehicles, such as family and urban cars, 4x4 vehicles, etc. One thing remained unchanged though, and that was the sporty spirit. The performance of Falken has been developed for years of their presence at race tracks, e.g., American Le Mans or Formula Drift. Today even you can use the advanced sport technologies used in these Japanese tyres.
