The Kleber Quadraxer 2 is an all-season mid-range tyre designed for passenger cars and SUVs. It is the successor to the Kleber Quadraxer, which premièred in 2011 and which has been very popular among drivers.
As with the first-generation model, the Quadraxer 2 features a directional tread pattern that easily handles the most challenging road conditions by efficiently dispersing water, slush and snow. This model also features "Toboggan" drainage channels, which promote water dispersal and reduce the risk of aquaplaning. Tests carried out by the Michelin Group (which owns the Kleber brand) at the Michelin R&D Centre in Ladoux showed that the model is 8% more resistant to aquaplaning on straight roads than the previous-generation model and 4% more resistant on corners (tests carried out on size 205/55 R16 91H tyres).
The Kleber Quadraxer 2 tyre has been given a label rating of B for wet braking. This is one class higher than the previous generation, which was rated C. In practical terms, this means that braking distances on wet surfaces have been reduced by 5% (1.6 m).
The Kleber Quadraxer 2 can handle winter conditions easily, as shown by the 3PMSF and M+S markings displayed on the tyre. The direction of the blades has been changed in this model to ensure even more efficient moving off and braking on snow.
All-season tyres also have to ensure good drivability on dry surfaces. The Quadraxer 2 optimises the area of contact between the tyre and the road, resulting in braking distances that are 9% (3.5 m) shorter than the previous-generation model. This was confirmed by in-house tests carried out by the Michelin Group at the Fontange track (using size 205/55 R16 91H tyres).
