BRAKE BOOSTER

Effective braking on snow

The surface of the tyre consists of tread blocks. The Brake Booster is an innovation that was developed on the rear edges of tread blocks on the edges of the tyre in order to provide additional safety in demanding weather. The Brake Booster is a part of each tread block located on the shoulder area of the tyre; it is a powerful, edged saw-tooth pattern that increases the tyre's contact with the driving surface and effectively increases braking grip, especially on snow surfaces.

DIAGONAL 3D SUPPORT SIPES

Quick steering response

The bare-road handling of the tyre has been improved with a new tread pattern design. The diagonal 3D support sipes in the center of the tread stiffen the tyre structure; this improves the driving feel by making the tyre respond quickly and sensitively to steering movements.
