Falken’s New Nordic Winter Truck Tyre Collection

Falken Tyre Europe has added two new truck tyres to its product range: the new SI011 for the steer axle and the new SI021 for the drive axle. Both Nordic truck tyres provide exceptional mileage and outstanding levels of traction.

The primary development objectives were outstanding traction, extended wear life and top-class stability and safety. Widened tread areas on both tyres are featured in the tyre pattern to increase traction and improve wear life.

New pattern SI011
The semi-solid central block pattern enhances driving stability to ensure excellent traction on snow and ice. An interlocking groove and sipe design provides exceptional traction under acceleration and braking for more driving safety. J-hook pattern sipes are used on the shoulders to prevent irregular wear and to improve resistance against tramlining on uneven surfaces.

New pattern SI021
Exceptionally deep sipes are designed to ensure high levels of grip throughout the lifetime of the tyre. This means high levels of traction and safety for an extended period of time. An optimised flat contact patch ensures even distribution of wear between the centre tread and the shoulder. The flatter profile not only maximises wear life but also improves traction. Moreover, the SI021 has been designed to be significantly quieter than its predecessor, which enhances driving comfort and lowers exterior road noise.

4D-Nano Compound
The super-computer and synchrotron-designed 4D- compound ensures excellent traction under acceleration and braking in all road and weather conditions as well as improved wear life. The 4D-Nano designed compound technology is patented under SRI technology, which has generated significant improvements in traction and tyre life.

All SI011 and SI021 sizes are M+S and 3PMSF (3-Peak Mountain Snow Flake) marked and meet all Nordic truck tyre regulations.
