Dry Touch Suction Sipe
The state-of-the-art wet grip and aquaplaning prevention of the tyre 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 tyre and the driving surface, routing it to the tyre's main grooves. This means that, on a rain-soaked road, the tyre can achieve maximum contact and a firm grip on the dryer driving surface.
The sipe shapes used on the tyre 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 tyre wears.
