All weather grip. The Sava adapto features a special silica compound for year round grip – whatever the weather. The snowflake symbol indicates that it meets the strict standards demanded of a winter classified tyre.
Great handling and braking year round. The tread compound adapts to the weather, giving the right level of stiffness in summer while staying flexible in winter. The result is dependable handling and braking in all weather conditions. Gripping edges in the tread add extra traction for winter roads.
Resistance to aquaplaning. Drive with confidence on wet roads. Wide tread grooves disperse water easily, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Quiet and comfortable. Quieter tires mean a more comfortable ride and less noise pollution. For the Adapto, we’ve designed a tread pattern that controls noise levels and gives you a smoother ride.
For drivers who don't want the hassle and expense of separate summer and winter tires, we've introduced the all-weather adapto.

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.
