Falken uses cutting-edge tyre technology for its latest PCR winter tyre: The EUROWINTER HS01
Excellent winter tyres have to meet the highest standards, especially in terms of snow and wet performance. After two years of development and thousands of testing miles, Falken presents its latest high-performance winter tyre with an innovative new tread design thanks to 3D ‘Miura-Ori’ sipes and interlocking grooves that can handle even the toughest winter conditions. The new tyre is the latest high-tech product from Falken.
The main development objectives were excellent snow, ice and wet grip, first-rate hydroplaning resistance, as well as high levels of directional stability, no matter what the weather conditions. The new EUROWINTER HS01 offers five percent better snow and wet handling and ten percent better aquaplaning resistance versus the predecessor.
True Circular Profile
A truly circular profile with enhanced sidewall flexibility is utilised for higher levels of driver confidence, shorter braking distances and enhanced overall driving characteristics. This profile is responsible for more communicative and consistent handling; additionally, it decreases the level of vibration at higher speeds. As a result of the more circular profile, dry handling has also been improved by five percent.
Pressure optimised ‘Miura-Ori’ sipes are used to increase the snow displacement area for more snow traction and steering precision. The Miura-Ori fold is a method of folding a flat surface into a smaller area, named after Japanese astrophysicist and inventor, Koryo Miura.
The EUROWINTER HS01 is now available in ten sizes, with an additional 74 sizes available in August 2017. The HS01 will be available in 13-20 inches, with an aspect ratio of 35-70. Falken’s newest generation EUROWINTER features a rolling resistance EU label of C-E, a wet braking label of B-C and a sound grade rating of two waves.The new HS01features speed indices of T, H, V and W.
