High Traction Tread Design - The intricate tread pattern balances winter traction and a smooth, quiet ride. The deep lateral and notched circumferential grooves provide excellent evacuation of water and slush from the tread contact patch.
"D-Squared" Sipe Technology - Incorporates a dense zig-zag sipe pattern that further enhances winter performance while maintaining excellent wet traction. variable sipe depth maintains element stability while optimizing winter performance.
IB-12 (Ice Biter) Enhanced Stud Technology - Provides an optimal combination of design, quantity and placement of stud pin holes to maximize the tire's traction on ice when studded. The stud pin holes are strategically located across the tread contact patch to allow maximum traction.
