Falken ESPIA EPZ II TIRE

Confident Winter Traction

The ESPIA EPZ II ensures driving confidence in the harshest winter conditions. Using the latest technology in tread design, compound and construction, the EPZ II is an excellent blend of winter performance and longer tread wear. The zigzag shape of the main groove is designed to provide resistance to hydroplaning while the tread notches create biting edges for traction on snow and ice. ESPIA EPZ II, designed for the most unforgiving winters. 

“NEWLY ENHANCED” 3D CANYON SIPE TECHNOLOGY
with a much thinner sipe design increases sipe density by 25% (then its predecessor) which allows for more edges per tread block. This increases ice braking and enhances snow and wet traction.

WIDE LATERAL GROOVES
work together with wide pockets built into the tire to allow more snow to pack into the tread, clearing the road surface quicker for increased snow traction in slushy or deep snow conditions.

WIDE CIRCUMFERENTIAL GROOVES
channel water away from the tread for consistent contact with the road surface, increasing wet traction and driver confidence.

HIGH-DENSITY SIPES
move water and snow away from the tread surface for continuous road connection with over 13,000 milimeters in edges added from its predecessor.

STRATEGICALLY DESIGNED RIB PLACEMENT
is ideal for excellent handling no matter the road surface condition. Larger outer-edge block-style ribs provide a comfortable and stable drive while maneuvering the vehicle.

SPECIALIZED RUBBER TREAD COMPOUND
provides pliability at low temperatures for excellent winter driving ability in snowy and icy conditions.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
