New Super Soft Compound:
Gives stronger adhesion with ice to sufficiently improve grip.
Give more contact with the ground, and substantial increases in grip.
Textured tread surface:
Fine raised lines increase friction with the ice surface for stronger grip.
Rigid centre block for controlled changes of direction, with better control.
Low temperature compound:
Designed to remain flexible at very low temperatures, but also retain wet grip allowing the tyre to meet EU legislation for wet braking.
Reinforce the outer circumferential grooves to provide lateral support as the compound is extremely soft. They also work to trap and compact snow to provide traction.
