The high-traction expert for safety. Robust and safe with excellent grip. For winter use on small commercial vehicles and vans.
Commercial traffic faces constant time and economic pressures. In turn these pressures create great demand on the features of van tires. In wintry conditions, the right winter tire can not only help make driving with passengers and cargo safer, but also minimize the risk of failed or late deliveries.
The VancoWinter™ line traditionally sets the benchmark of optimal winter safety and performance for vans. The product line has proven itself on numerous occasions with tests by the media and in day-to-day application by end users.
The VancoWinter™ 2 is the new high-traction expert for safe transport of goods and people through the winter. Its genuine winter performance meets the requirements of the snowflake marking as provided by RMA testing standards.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Optimised braking effect on snow and ice. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Iveco Daily, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Mercedes-Benz Vito/Viano.
Optimised braking effect on snow and ice
Car-orientated handling on snow
Cost-effective even in winter
Excellent protection against aquaplaning and safe wet handling
Optimised braking effect on snow and ice. When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Multiple offset edges cause an ice-scraper effect for outstanding braking performance on wintry roads.
Car-oriented handling on snow. Gripping edges interlock with the snow to provide handling characteristics similar to a car on snow, wet and dry roads and during low temperature.
Excellent resistance to aquaplaning and safe wet handling. Open shoulders with lateral grooves support the water drainage in lateral direction, thus providing excellent protection from aquaplaning in wet and slushy conditions.
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.
