Advanced winter tyre with excellent winter grip and shorter braking distances
For tough winter handling at an attractive price, choose the Sava Eskimo S3+ tyre.
- Reliable grip on winter roads
- Dependable wet braking
- Resistance to aquaplaning
- Good mileage
Good mileage. The Sava eskimo s3+ lasts for longer - saving you money. The construction of the tyre ensures even wear across the surface. With a durable tread compound, you get more miles between tyre changes. Great winter performance doesn’t have to cost the earth. The Sava Eskimo S3+ keeps a firm grip on wet and snowy roads - one less thing to worry about when the temperature drops. Classified with the snowflake symbol for winter use.
Reliable grip on winter roads. Enjoy more control in cold, snowy conditions. An advanced winter silica compound means the eskimo s3+ stays soft and flexible at low temperatures, for improved grip and handling. The snowflake symbol indicates that this tire meets strict performance standards for winter tyres.
Dependable wet braking. The eskimo s3+ uses a special resin that gives better grip and shorter braking distances on wet roads. The tread design features extra edges that improve traction further.
Resistance to aquaplaning. A directional design with wide tread grooves effectively disperses water and slush, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
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.
