Is the new UHP SUV All Season product developed for premium and prestige OE Car Makers.
This product has been developed to maximize the performances during all the seasons, in every driving condition, also on light snow-covered roads. It will replace the SCORPION ZERO ASIMMETRICO. SCORPION ZERO ALL SEASON has been chosen by the best car makers in order to equip their SUVs.
The new tread design assures maximum performance in every season and driving condition, providing both excellent grip and traction.
Curved sipes in the internal blocks allow a better traction on snow, leading to increased safety and control on snow.
High sipe density: over 30m of sipes (93% more than the Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico) provide excellent grip and traction in winter season, resulting in a great performance in the presence of snow.
Optimized tread design with curved grooves and bridges leads to noticeable noise reduction for improved driving comfort.
Four longitudinal grooves for an excellent water expulsion and the external one being smaller to provide pattern adaptability for increased safety on dry surfaces. Lower tread depth to increase dry braking performance without compromising wear performance.
The new tread compound, derived from a new mixing process (PTSM), results in excellent wet performance and rolling resistance.
Tread compound: high silica content combined with the latest generation of polymer that improves polymer/filler interaction provides excellent performance balance (snow/wet/RR). Special additives optimize curing and mechanical properties.
New body compounds designed for low heat generation place special focus on RR reduction without compromising integrity, regardless of the heavy weight and speed SUVs tyres have to bear.
New compound mixing process (PTSM) improves ingredients dispersion and reactivity to increase the versatility of the tyre, improving wet performance on a wider temperature range and rolling resistance.
A new flatter profile has been designed through computer modeling to optimize pressure distribution on footprint to maximize braking and wear performance.
Rolling Resistance to maximize wear performance and increase fuel efficiency
Wet and Dry Handling to increase safety
Snow traction for the highest safety and control on snow
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
