Dry Touch Suction Sipe
The state-of-the-art wet grip and aquaplaning prevention of the tire are ensured by using special innovations as well as rubber compounds adjusted for the varying Northern conditions.
The suction sipe is a unique invention that effectively removes the water from between the tire and the driving surface, routing it to the tire's main grooves. This means that, on a rain-soaked road, the tire can achieve maximum contact and a firm grip on the dryer driving surface.
The sipe shapes used on the tire ensure that it has excellent wet grip, even when worn. The unique Dry Touch sipe is wider at the bottom, which means that the groove volume of the sipe increases instead of reducing as the tire wears.
