Stiff Handling Blocks

The Stiff Handling Blocks have heavy sipes to improve traction; they become shallower when moving towards the shoulder from the centre. This design improves grip on snow as well as the driving feel. An aggressive activator sipe that is used to boost the operation of the shoulder block during acceleration and braking, when grip is needed the most, is located in the middle of the shoulder blocks.
