Speed-Life 2 - The agile
Enjoy alpine driving. For powerful medium range and luxury vehicles and SUVs.
The Semperit quality, provides maximum safety, even under tough conditions. Excellent braking performance on wet roads. Fits perfectly for example to VW Scirocco, Peugeot 307 CC and Audi Q3.
Optimal all-round properties for safe driving throughout summer.
Excellent braking performance on wet roads.
Through good water dispersion, the contact with the road is increasing. Your advantage: short braking distance even on wet surfaces.
Outstanding handling in dry conditions.
The lateral rigidity in the centre section of the tyre, resulting in a reduced tread deformation. Your advantage: high steering precision even at small steering angles.
Improved rolling resistance for better mileage.
The anchoring technology of the new blue silica compound reduces energy loss and increases wear resistance. Your advantage: less rolling resistance and more mileage at constant good braking performance.
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.
