Snow Groove Design Technology: Provides biting edges for snow and ice traction without reducing tread element stiffness. Capitalises on the highest traction characteristics of ‘snow on snow’ versus ‘snow on rubber’. D Square D2 Sipe Technology: A dense ‘zig-zag’ sipe pattern further enhances winter performance while maintaining excellent wet traction. The sipes are deep to provide performance benefits throughout the life of the tyre. Strategically Placed Stud Pin Holes: Provide enhanced stud retention while delivering optimum traction on ice. All-Terrain Design: Allows the tyre to perform equally well on the road and off.
