This tyre boasts a directional tread pattern with four circumferential grooves. This breaks from the solid V-shaped tread blocks traditionally seen on most directional tyres to increase stability and grip in wintery conditions.
Its rubber compound has a high silica content, keeping the tyre supple enough to key into the road – even on snow and ice. In motion, the directional pattern creates a natural gravity pushing any water out from between the tyre and the road. This results a higher resistance to aquaplaning as the diamond-shaped tread blocks dig through the water to the road surface, creating a better contact patch between tyre and road. High arching sipes surround the directional tread pattern and seem to sweep over each shoulder tapering along the sidewall to help the tyre’s cornering and stability.
Overall, an excellent tyre in any weather, quiet, durable with great handling and traction.
